Libby has been in love with her best friends older brother Tony since she was seven years old. It takes him several years and a lot of missteps along the way to catch up. First she was too young. Then she thinks he has a girlfriend. Then he thinks she has a boyfriend and then there is the separation of college and work for him then college for her and through it all they hide their feelings from each other afraid of being hurt. When they finally get together in the end it is almost a relief.
This is a sweet and sentimental romance. My biggest complaint is that I really couldn’t stand Mel the best friend.
