    In short, I absolutely adored this book and found it very difficult to put it down once I started reading. A Case of Serendipity is a contemporary light romance novel which focuses on Ruth, a quirky divorcee and Henry, a workaholic lawyer, who are thrown together by fate after Ruth becomes the lead plaintiff in a case against Bucky’s Beans Coffeehouse.The novel is a first person narrative and each chapter alternates between either Ruth or Henry...

    There’s absolutely no question that the writing in this book was completely charming. Ms. Farnham have a gift and I was charmed, y’all. I kept thinking I was reading a small town romance but…it’s not really. It’s just got that small town charm and I fell into that like a warm cozy blanket.I loved Ruth Bateman. I mean, I adored her. She felt so real to me –quirky, kind, a little beat up by life, a little awkward, but 100% lovable. And ...

    This review was originally posted on karaneleni.comYou guys!! This is my first read from K. J. Farnham, and I know I say this a lot, but I wish I wouldn't have waited so long! Coffee shops, social media, unwanted text messages from corporations that you know you never signed up for, and fitness centers make this story completely relatable to many readers. Ok fine, not so much the fitness center for me, but some will relate to that one. And puzzl...

    A Case of Serendipity is a lovely contemporary romance. Ms. Farnham has set the plot pace to realistic. There is no insta-love where the main characters proclaim their undying love after knowing each other a few days. The story is told in a first person narrative with chapters alternating between Ruth and Henry’s point of view. This allows readers to really get to know both characters. The story premise is cute and realistic.I loved Ruth Batema...

    Loved this light contemporary romance. It was just too darn cute and adorable. Both Ruth and Henry's characters were so relatable and honestly I was rooting for these two. Couldn't decide who I liked better between these two, the jovial Ruth or the uptight Henry. The author has beautifully sketched the characters and narrated the story and kept the flow of the story so grasping that my fingers keeping turning the page until I was done with the st...

    A super fun, light romance, A Case Of Serendipity is a story that is quick to get drawn into and easy reading. “He shakes his head. “I’m an idiot.” “You are,” I say, nodding and cracking a grin. “And a terrible dancer, too.”My full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

    A Case of Serendipity is a light romance that pulls you in. It has a great story behind it that makes you want to have the same kind of relationship.Ruth and Henry are the perfect match. She helps him to get out and live, something he doesn't normally do. They compliment each other perfectly and their chemistry is on point.K.J. knows how to write and this book is a great read!

    3.5 StarsThis happens to be my first story written by this author, and although I did not fully connect with it like other readers have, I still found it to be a good read. I didn’t quite fully feel the connection between the main characters. I would have loved to see more focus on their growing love for one another. The love part seemed a little rushed to me by the end. This story is a slow burning, light hearted romance. I loved the character...

    What a fun and quick read! I thoroughly enjoyed this book: the characters are so relatable and real people, and the details of Milwaukee brought me home as well as painted such a clear picture. KJ’s storytelling is brilliant, the dual point of view gives you a glance at what each character is thinking and feeling, keeping you rooting them on. Another aspect that I love about this book is that it is a clean read. It is easy to write and read a b...

    Intrigued by a person you have never personally met, only through an e-mail conversation (and not even about personal things)? A Case of Serendipity tells the story of Ruth and Henry, who meet thanks to an overly-active spamming coffeehouse. Compared to the books I normally read it’s pretty tame, but I’ve enjoyed reading this sweet story. “It is something I hope for. That certain level of intimacy. The feeling of being with someone who make...

    5 Ruby Red Lips Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance ReviewI have never had the honor to read anything by K.J. Farnham, but I promise she has a new lifelong fan. I loved this story from start to finish. I loved Ruth and Henry. I love how amazing they are as a couple. I love that Henry is OCD and a workaholic. And I love how amazing Ruth is and how she fights for what she believes in. I loved the idea behind this story and how it all works out.K.J....

    Another great book by KJ Farnham! I’ve read Click Date Repeat and Click Date Repeat Again and was excited to read this latest. I read it on my spring break and it was the perfect read! Easy to read, but also drew me in and made it hard to put the book down! I loved the characters and liked how the chapters alternated between Ruth’s view and Henry’s view. Definitely recommend!

    A Case of Serendipity is a lovely light hearted romance to be enjoyed by most ages. Young adults would love it and older adults will love it as well because it is not filled with the details of romance. I felt that it was written well and with enough sense of curiosity to keep you engaged in reading the book and not want to put it down. It is a fun and quick read. Thank you K.J. for sharing your great skills and talent with us! Another book pleas...

    This book is a fun read! Will quirky Ruth and straight laced Henry end up together or not? I loved that it is set right in my hometown, Milwaukee, WI. I could picture Ruth biking on the path right by the lake. Highly recommend (the bike ride and this book)!!

    Another great read by Farnham! The story alternates between Ruth and Henry's point of view. I loved getting to see into each of their minds as the book developed. Farnham created two very likable characters with Ruth and Henry and I couldn't decide which one I liked better, but was definitely hoping for something to happen between them! If you are looking for a light, fun romance (with the bonus of learning some legal stuff), this is the book for...

    A Case of Serendipity is a romance about Henry, a lawyer, and Ruth, who is getting unwanted and unsubscribed texts from Bucky’s Beans coffee. Henry is trying to to find someone to be his lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against the company when he comes across a public complaint posted by Ruth on Facebook. The premise of this book is so original and I really enjoyed it. It continues with Ruth being named lead complainant on the lawsuit,...

    Ruth and Henry are the type of couple that you want to root for. Ruth is super sweet and quirky and has taken some knocks. Henry is the buttoned up lawyer who needs a little fun in his monotonous duty-filled life. They are perfect for each other and this book is perfect for those who just want a good old fashioned love story. Boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after. Perfect.

    A Case of Serendipity is exactly what I would expect from K.J. It's an easy read, nothing too deep and not at all dark, also what I would call an all around make you feel good sweet type of romance that is pretty clean. I prefer to read romances without descriptive/detailed sex scenes...which to me aren't necessary in the least. If you prefer those, this is probably not the book for you. K.J. is an amazing writer and writes another easy read that...

    This story is told in dual POV (which I happen to love)!For me, this is another 5 star story written by Ms. Farnham. A light read that will sweep you off your feet and have you cheering for Ruth Bateman and Henry Mancuso! These two characters are so darn funny, odd (in their own way), lovable, likable – I just want to be their friend and hang out with them. Maybe even grab a cup of coffee with them, but perhaps not at Bucky’s Beans Coffeehous...

    More of a 3.5 Stars really.Somehow I found that I just could not connect with the characters in this book at all. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the writing or the characterisation, I think they were just too far away from the people that I know and so had no reference point for their motivations and behaviours. Beyond Ruth's love of jigsaw puzzles and Henry's workaholism their lifestyles are polar opposites to mine, so much so that I ...

    4.5 Stars! It’s a rare book that charms me so completely from the first page, all the way until the last. A Case of Serendipity is a delightful, refreshing story about two people falling in love that is a departure from the abundance of insta-love and alpha males so frequently offered up these days.Despite a debilitating injury and a failed marriage in her past, Ruth Bateman is an upbeat, carefree person. But the text-message offers she gets co...

    Just finished reading and sad that I won't be smiling anymore. This story is a sweet romance between Ruth and Henry. K.J. Farnham continues to be a flawless writer. If you liked her previous books, you'll enjoy this as well. She does a wonderful job drawing you in with the details of the characters. She includes just enough so you can picture them, without being overly descriptive. My favorite part is how she shares exactly what the characters ar...

    A very sweet read!Just what I needed! A very sweet read with well developed characters and an interesting storyline. Definitely not an over the top kind of book. A perfect Sunday relaxation kind of read with a believable plot. Of course I adored the main characters but even the ones in the background were wonderful in their own way. I think Joan was the one who captured my heart the most. She reminds me a lot of someone I used to know. I could de...
