I really enjoyed the way the book was written. It used flashbacks in a smart way that added to the story in order to get to know the character’s pasts. When we were caught up to the background, they stopped, and we were able to focus on the present. It was super refreshing to not have unnecessary information in them either. Instead, it focused on what we needed to know as a reader without extra fluff ... Overall, the book was so cute. I was enthralled by the relationship between Sandy and Hank and really wanted to see them give in to their feelings. I think they both make each other stronger in the ways they needed, which is serious relationship goals.
... light, sprightly ... full of quirky characters who provide plenty of colorful commentary on Hank and Sandy's relationship. It's delightful but also distracting at times, because those townspeople take up space in the narrative that could have been dedicated to the main couple. Winfrey is the queen of charming and cozily sweet contemporary romances, and it's clear that the foundation Hank and Sandy built as teenagers is still there, so it's no surprise that their journey back to each other is low on angst. But one of the most interesting aspects of Just Another Love Song is Winfrey's illustration of how the hopes and dreams of youth can be not only encouraging but also overwhelming and debilitating. Hank and Sandy have a much better chance of making things work now that they're in their 30s, with life experience to balance the stars in their eyes ... Although this slow-burn romance may unfold a bit too sedately for some, Winfrey's trademark snappy dialogue and well-paced character development provides much to enjoy along the way.
