Love might have a chance… if her family stays out of it.

When Knox Campbell goes to Portugal for a short business trip, he never planned on losing his documents. Now he’s stranded in Porto, his passport lost, and his credit cards canceled. Knox turns to the travel agent who suggested the local day attractions for assistance.

Jacinta Romano loves helping her clients set up their dream trips, although she doesn’t usually meet the ones visiting from abroad. But all that changes when a client shows up at the agency while her meddling family are still there. They latch on to him immediately, insisting Jacinta bring him home while he’s stranded. Thankfully, he’s only staying until his new passport arrives and after two weeks of playing hostess, she’ll be glad to send him on his way.

Or will she?

My Review: 4 Stars
 
This is a short little novella and I was pleasantly surprised at how well the characters and plot were developed in such a tiny blip of time. I would be Knox--in a foreign country with no idea how to speak the language. Luckily for him, he has a travel agent that he's been emailing for things to do who comes to the rescue in translating for him when an unfortunate event occurs. He's such a normal character, which makes him very likable and easy to relate to. 
 
Jacinta, the travel agent, is likable as well, with her helpful ways and large, crazy family (which I loved!). Her emotions are on her sleeve throughout and I was cheering for her to find her happily ever after so hard, especially as this is an attraction-at-first-sight kind of story.
 
Things don't always turn out the way that I want them to, or even expect them to, but I still had a blast experiencing Northern Portugal through the eyes of these characters.
 
Content: mild romance
