Review: About Time (The Avenue #1)

From the author:

About time CoverIt’s all about timing . . .

Ten years. That’s how long Ashton Andrews spent wondering if she would ever have the family she craved, with a man who was apparently not the one.

Six weeks. Time spent patiently waiting, silently hoping and endlessly wondering if the decision she’d made to go it alone was the right one.

Nine months. Morning sickness, cravings and that constant need to pee are what Ashton has to look forward to, knowing that numbered are her days of being just one.

Fifteen years, eight days. An eternity ago were those unforgettable moments spent crushing on her brother’s best friend, yet her mind constantly turns to him—the one who got away.

The one who might yet be her one.

It’s probably about time she found out . . .

About Time is a contemporary romance featuring 30-something characters who know that life is short and know what they want.

My review:

Let me start with this: B. Cranford was a new to me author, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, and she didn’t disappoint.  I loved this book so very much I may have binged a little.  And I’ve not read all her books at this time, so my TBR has grown.

“About Time” is a book that touches so many emotions.  We are introduced to the Andrews family, but we learn this family is so much more than sharing DNA.  I believe friends are the family we get to choose and this book has it in spades.

Our players: The Andrews family: Ashley (Ash),  brothers Austin (Aussie), and Aaron.  We also meet Andrew Duncan (Dunk), Odette (Odie)  and Simon, who make up this dynamic family. We also get a glimpse of Ash, Aussie, and Aaron’s parents.  Although it’s a glimpse, the impact is large.

The Avenue is a bar that is owned by Ash and Aussie and is where Odie works.  We see this pub so many times throughout the book series in such a way that we’re at the bar.  What we have is a group of family (remember: friends are family who really with one another).  Ash and Dunk have known one another for well over a decade and we watch their relationship change and grow.

This story flashes back over the years and time has landed our characters where they are and it wasn’t without some struggles and second guesses.  You’ll feel it all: Angst. Happy. Giddy. Sad. What in the ever loving hell?!  It’s all there; read it!

My rating: 5 Tiaras
