Kneading You (2019) C.S. Poe

Kneading YouChristopher Hughes always wanted to live in a small town. With a degree in literature, he’s delighted to take a job taking over the local library and help it recover from years of neglect.

Unfortunately, a local Selectman wants the property for a building project, so Christopher has a tiny window and an even tinier budget to impress the town so they keep the building, and just maybe give him a budget for improvements.

But once the local handyman, Miles Sakasai, shows up, Christopher finds one more thing to work towards.

This story is so sweet!

Although he doesn’t have a degree in library science, Christopher is still passionate about libraries.

This library is not cost-effective. It’s really that simple.”

“But it’s not about making money,” I declared. “It’s about having a safe and free place for people to come and learn! This town doesn’t even have a bookstore— you have to drive nearly twenty miles to the closest one, and then you have to buy the book! Libraries are here for those who can’t afford to make that purchase. For kids who need resources for school, or even— if we were able to purchase a computer or two, we’d have high-speed internet for those who need something better than dial-up. Libraries are crucial!”

And Miles is just as sweet–a quiet man who is content working as a handyman and baking bread–doing what makes him happy rather than what society (and his family) expects of him.

And in addition to being sweet, it was an interesting story. How was Christopher going to save the library? Because the HEA wasn’t just Christopher and Miles, but Christopher saving the library.
