Dearest March by Holly Schindler
Jo March runs the bookstore named after her in Finley. Mark is a quirky character that comes around now and then but Jo thinks of him as more of a nuisance than anything else. Mark is loud, absent-minded, careless, and for Pete's sake he lives in a tree house! So when Jo receives a gift of her favorite book of all-time she doesn't even think that it could be Mark. Sure that her ex-husband is trying to get her attention again Jo is flattered, especially when she starts receiving notes from her admirer. At the same time Jo starts to notice Mark sneaking around and she sets out to find out what he is up to. What she finds out changes her perception of him.
Awwww, this is my favorite so far, but I have a feeling you will need to be prepared to hear that a lot as the year goes on because the Forever Finley Short Story Cycle seems to get better as it progresses! In Dearest March we once again meet up with Norma from Miles Left Yet. She's settled into Finley quite well now and has made a go of her antique store. She's also friends with Jo and I enjoyed the relationship they have built. I loved Mark's character. He's definitely full of surprises. Looking forward to next month to see what happens next in Finley!
