    I was totally going to dock a star for this story because it ended too soon (yes, I knew it was a novella going in - some novellas are better self-contained than others), but it has apple cider donuts in it! They're the bestest, ever! So, I gave it all the stars! Anyway, this story is about Alex (Mr. Denim / Just-the-right-fit-T-shirt Man) and Grace and how they connect during the course of a week over tea and coffee and nommy treats. It's a sweet little story and gives you a glimpse of small town comings and goings - Grace is a little spazzy at times, but totally in character - although I thought they both seemed really far into their lives for being in their late 20s ...One of the things that I really liked about this story was that there wasn't too much of the "hide my feelings" carousel - they spit out what they were feeling in pretty quick succession and I liked that there weren't any silly, contrived misunderstandings and angst. there was also a hint of jealousy, great supporting characters, and a nice homey feel (of the "come in and prop your feet up" variety).Apparently this will be one of those novella series because it introduces characters who'll be the subjects for the next book (or maybe this is book 2? not sure ... obviously, they do okay as a stand-alone). Hopefully we'll hear more from the residents of Clairmont and get some much needed peeks at Alex and Grace ...I'll leave you with a smile and hope that you will share yours with someone today :)

    You smiled is a novella about Grace a young owner of a café and Alex a mysterious guy coming one day at her place.This books sets on a coast of Maine and i really like how the place and people were described.The title and the blurb intrigued me : One week to help her remember. One week to make her smile. One week to fall in love.In this story, Alex came to her coffee and immediately went straight to her, as like he knew her but Grace couldn’t remembered him. As time goes by, we understand that the clock is running and Alex is trying to remember Grace to smile but so much more. Grace is struggling with a lot if things in her life : her divorce, her brother, family. She is so focused in her work that she’s not letting go and seemed avoided relationship in this town where there was more women than men. Alex is the whole package : beautiful inside and outside, charming, and very attractive especially by Grace. He flew across the country to find her. When we understand the real reason, it melt my heart; i can’t help it i’m an hopeless romantic! In one smile, when they were younger, Alex found the courage to face his life and in one smile kind of fall in love with Grace even if she can’t recollect this moment and felt guilty about that. She overwhelmed by all of this, everything going so fast : in a couple of days, she became more and more attached to this man, who isn’t afraid by his feelings and goes for it. Their time is limited and she conflicted about him, who apparently wait for her for the past ten years without getting involved in a real relationship.This story shows how one smile can change everything and help someone getting better. Although the story was a little bit predictable and Alex too perfect to be true, i enjoyed this story and i smiled a lot while i was reading it. This is a kind of book that you can read with a cup of tea, coffee or chocolate in the warm of your home. Perfect for the cold days! I give this book 3.5 stars because it was too short and i would see more of their relationship, i think it deserved to be more developed.

    "Well, no one can take on everybody's needs, but I guess anyone can take the time to smile at someone."This story made me smile - a lot!!!'You smiled' - This was an awesome story about the power of a simple smile.Grace's smile somehow saved Alex (I won't start about the fact that I always happen to love protagonists who are named Alex), changed his life and it made him fall in love with the woman who smiled at him - with Grace.And at the end - even if it took him 10 years to work up the courage to finally approach her - what started with a smile ends with a beautiful love-story.I really can see their much deserved happily ever after looming on the horizon.If this is what one simple smile can start, what this tiny gesture is capable of, maybe we should smile more often - even if our only reward is to earn a smile in return....Four stars ★★★★ for Grace and Alex's 'You smiled' - I would love to read more about these two smiling persons... :)

    This story started out sweet, but kind of took a weird turn as Grace and Alex got to know each other. Alex is nearly 30, completely gorgeous (at least according to all the women in the book), but has never dated anyone? It wasn't super clear, but it sounded like he'd never even kissed anyone. I just can't wrap my head around him pining for 10 years over someone who never even knew he existed (and really isn't all that nice of a person). In theory it seems a little sweet, but mostly just sad and pathetic. I guess I just need a bit more realism/believability.

    It was sweet and full of promise, up to a certain time. Then you find out the whole thing rushes, he may or may not be a virgin (and btw they only exchange a couple of kisses, so you end up without knowing for sure) and she is a bit silly with the whole "i wonder if u r a maniac" followed by "clearly not, let's make out then" and the stupid reasons not to see him after all. in a nutshell: meh.

    This is a perfect beach read. It's sweet, funny, and cheeky all at the same time. I got to know some of the peripheral characters through Scheyder's previous book, Cafenova, and was so pleased to be able to visit them again. Besides, it takes place in Maine on the beach. Who could want more?

    Would've given it 4 stars except I'm not a big fan of novellas or short stories and decided to give this one a chance. They often don't feel complete and ends too soon which I felt the same with this novella. It was a cute predictable love story.

    Great ReadI loved her first book Cafenova. So when I saw she had this book out. I couldn't wait to read it. Refreshing story but too short for me. But can't wait for the series to continue this summer.

    Short, clean, sweet. I'm giving extra stars for the story behind the smile. It really moved me, to tears, actually, and I think that makes it worthy of bonus points.

    This was a good little story to distract me from other things. The storyline is a little odd, but it's great for a quick beach or weekend read.
