Right now he does not have a job so he is taking 3 week vacation. He comes up with a idea to have a booth at the festival to find the women who fits the sandle right down to the wear on the soles.
Thier are some love scenes that I skipped over. I did laugh at times in the book. In fact the book was charming.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
