Lost in Love (The Miss Apple Pants series Book 2) by Charlotte Roth was a sweet, emotional read, that got me in all the good feels.
The second book in The Miss Apple Pants Series, and I have to say, Charlotte Roth has outdone herself. I did have some mix feels about the first book, but once I saw the second and remembering the loose ends from the first book, I had to pick it up. Now before you dive into this wonder, this is a continuation series, so I highly suggest reading the first book, or be prepared for major spoilers.
This book was pure emotions. Sure there were still some issues with filler and going down the rabbit hole, but it fits so well with Ella’s personality, that I didn’t mine it as much as I did in the first book. I will say that the ending, that soul fire, kick to the chest that melted my heart, felt like it took way too long to get too. I get it, real life isn’t that fast, but, I felt like this big adventure in Europe, took too long to get to the point, as to why Ella was there in the first place. Again I don’t know if this was done to up word count, but this book would have been just as impactful, if it was more compact and maybe even novella size.
Overall this sweet tale was heart clutching, and you can feel the love, sadness, longing, from each character. There was this one scene with Thomas as the start, where I literally felt his heart pain, longing, and just plain old pure love.. and then I wanted to slap Ella for not seeing it, or better yet, not wanting to see it. Damn it all, my heart is all fluttery, happy and just melty.
With that said, please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get swept away by this weird combination of, Sleepless in Seattle, Eat, Pray, Love and happy ever afters.
