Rating: 4 Cups
Mai Fagan is apartment hunting after she has to return home to care for her mother with a broken leg. Her mother’s house has too many steps to try to maneuver with a cast. When Mai meets Brit, he is more than eager to come to her rescue.
Clarence Bristol Twitchell, Brit, is a divorcée with two grown daughters. He understands Mai’s problem and is more than happy to lend a hand in finding a level apartment. And he likes to take care of his garden in the buff.
At present, Mai does data entry for a small business. Brit is an independent insurance agent. Mai is footloose and is home to care for her mother while her leg mends. When he and Mia run into each other, he finds her purely delightful and wants to help her search for something suitable for Flo, her mother. Flo believes that Brit is a very nice fellow, but too old for Mai. In time, Brit and Mai realize they share the same interests. Brit knows he can make her happy despite their age difference. After Mai decides to open up a flea market next to the development that Brit is working on, things take on another turn in their possible blossoming relationship that makes her wonder if it will ever work.
Mai’s Ties is a refreshing read. It has some unexpected twists and turns making the book fascinating. I liked Brit and Mai the moment they clashed at his apartment. No matter what their age difference, they were great together and the dialogue was excellent. Taking care of a garden in the nude was quite a unique spin too. C.J. Winters weaves a real McCoy tale that is neat in every way. She creates an easy flowing story that enchants the reader.
