No Time For Love is a heartwarming romantic story about family, friendships and getting a second chance at finding love. In her debut novel, author J.B. Miller weaves a tender and inspirational story of one woman’s journey to reconcile her past and put it behind her, live in the present, and look forward to a future with a new love. This wonderful story has an easy writing style that flows so smoothly, it embraces the reader and draws you into Chatham’s life as if you were a part of her family.
This fun story has a mixture of romance, comedy and even a little bit of mystery thrown into the mix. The author transports the reader between the East Coast and West Coast as Chatham tries to choose between Palio and Trip. The story has some really nice lighthearted romance scenes, a lot of humorous scenes that provide laugh out loud moments, and enough intriguing twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages. I do have to admit that I found the story to be a tad bit long as it has over four hundred plus pages, but the author does such a wonderful job of maintaining the reader’s interest that it does have a fast-paced feel that makes up for the length of the book. With a quirky cast of characters that are fun to get to know; engaging dialogue and interactions; and a bit of suspense and mystery to peak your interest; No Time For Love is a poignant true-to-life story of one woman’s ability to juggle family, work and love.
