It was lovely to hear from you earlier (about my review for Stolen). Thanks for that.
I enjoyed reading "Own". The length seemed to fit the story so well, the charactors and the plot, they meandered along at their own laid back pace. I liked it. Bella's relationship with Jake reminded me of mine with my first boyfriend. We went out for three years, but to me he was my good friend and never anything other than that. I only went out with him the first time because he kept asking me over and over and I kept telling him no... that I didn't think of him that way, but then he asked me if he could take me out to dinner just once and if I didn't have a good time with him he would leave me alone and never ask me again... so I caved and agreed. He kept offering to drive me everywhere after that and I kept telling him that I thought he was great but that we were just friends. Everyone thought we were going out and other guys stopped asking me out because they thought we were together and the last year I tried to be his girlfriend, since he was so protective and caring, and would bend over backwards for my not-always-sweet, teenage self. Anyway, you get the picture. Its so sad to see relationships like that... when one person obviously cares so much more for the other person. The end result is that both people lose out on so much by settling, and deserve better. I was so relieved (and surprised) that you had Jake realize this first and end things with Bella amicably.

You've outdone yourself in smiles and sweetness once again. Enjoyed that very much. It was mellow but definitely not boring. Sweet but not sappy. Old Chinese proverbs have a tendency to impact many lives. Thanks again for writing.

Just lovely and sweet - I liked the whole set-up, the life in a small town, the stagnant life and old house waiting for a new breath of air to sweep through - and that connection of fate...Loved this! ;)

This was really great. I can't help but wonder what the people of such a small town would think of Bella moving from one guy to another since they obviously don't know the truth behind Bella and Jake's arrangement. I suspect it would cause quite a scandal.

Really sweet story, thanks for sharing. I had to stop reading in the middle to look up recipes for salted carmel cupcakes :)
