Con Riley - Must Like Spinach-- Blog Tour & Giveaway

Book: Must Like Spinach

Author: Con Riley

Release Date: October 21 2016

Length: 84,200 words

Jon's future in New York seems bright. He's on the corporate fast track as an executive problem solver, but somehow he can't help feeling hollow. Yearning for a life spent outdoors makes no sense if he wants to flourish in this city, nor does losing his cool with clients when they make bad decisions. Only leaving the East Coast behind for three months can save his business reputation.
His exile in Seattle has unexpected upsides. Jon's rented home has a garden where his true passions blossom. It's overgrown yet idyllic- perfect if he didn't have to share it with another tenant. Tyler might be as cute as hell, and their landlady adores him, but Jon can't let himself fall for someone who seems lazy.
Three months could be enough time to see Tyler clearly, but choosing which to nurture long-term--love or a business career--might take Jon longer than one summer.

Author Bio
Con Riley lives on the wild and rugged Devonshire coast, with her head in the clouds, and her feet in the Atlantic Ocean.
Injury curtailed her enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, so writing fiction now fills her free time. Love, loss, and redemption shape her romance stories, and her characters are flawed in ways that makes them live and breathe.
When not people watching, or wrangling her own boy band of teen sons, she spends time staring at the sea from her kitchen window. If you see her, don't disturb herósheís probably thinking up new plots.

Review: I loved this book, had a hard time putting it down in fact. I don't know which guy I was rooting for the most because they were both so well written. Actually, all the characters were fantastic. I adored Peggy, Jon's landlady, who even at her older age still tried to keep up with her huge garden. The growth that both men go through made this a wonderful, simple read. 
Besides the romance between Jon and Tyler there is a little bit of a mystery going on with the company that Jon is sent in to consult on.  Not necessarily a enemies-to-lovers book but not really a friends-to-lovers book either, I think this one falls into a new category for me. No matter what I call it, I do know that I enjoyed it.
