⭐⭐⭐.5 3.5 out of 5 stars

When Mara’s dear friend and mentor Helena left her a house in her will, the young environmental engineer decided to use a chance to save some money and moved in.

I genuinely enjoyed Love Hypothesis and expected something similar. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high. Under one roof is a novella, a work of hardly 120 pages. It is written in a light style, characteristic of Ali Hazelwood. It has all the features that contributed to her success, apart from captivating characters. While Olive could be slightly annoying in her lack of confidence, Mara was unbearable. While I enjoyed reading about the budding affection the characters share, I think her constant denial of apparent facts was pushed too far.

In general, this is a simple love story. Just another example of a well-developed genre. But it works well when you feel like reading something romantic.
