A Breath of Fresh Air (by Erica James)

'A Breath of Fresh Air' is a modern village novel by Erica James.

Charlotte loses her husband, and buys a house in the small village where her sister lives. Alex, her tenant, is attracted to her. Both have a lot to learn about pain and expressing their feelings.

On the whole, there are likable people in this novel. The minor characters are somewhat stereotyped, but perhaps all the more memorable as a result.

There are some surprises in the plot, although the ending is fairly predictable. Nothing too heavy - but I thought this an above-average light read.

(I wrote a much longer review of 'A Breath of Fresh Air' after re-reading eight years later)
