I loved the story of Miles’ whirlwind courtship of the demure Maribel. Although the story is relatively short, the characters and plot line are fully developed. I enjoyed reading the story from both characters’ perspectives, and felt like I could fully understand the emotions that drove each character’s actions.
I did notice several issues with missing words and the use of improper homonyms, so a re-edit would be beneficial, but the errors were not enough to jar me out of the world the author created. I’ll definitely be recommending this to friends.
