"Lily Baines is a wonderful romance writer who is able to whisk her readers away from everyday life, which at many times is exactly what we are looking for in a book.  Her characters and the development of their relationships are captivating, even though they are just regular people doing regular things...

When your normal life is hectic or stressful, Lily can be trusted for a delightfully entertaining romance with a happily-ever-after ending."

LitBuzz review for Of All People (read full review here): 

"Lily Baines gives readers a holiday treat with another heartwarming romance, Of All People,  her second book in the Of All Hearts series.  Set in the picturesque town of Rimini, Italy, this quaint seaside village is a beautiful backdrop for the unexpected romance of Romeo and Siena, two people who are jaded on love but for two very different reasons...

As an added bonus, the Of All Hearts series is developing into a fascinating travel guide. Her locations are stunning and off the beaten path from the usual European sites many authors tend to use.  Her writing incorporates the local customs and events into the story in such an enticing way that I keep adding them to my list of places I would like to visit someday."

LitBuzz review for Of All Places  (read full review here):

"Lily Baines has written the perfect chick lit, contemporary romance with Of All Places. Set in the Baltic nation of Montenegro on the Adriatic Sea, the story’s beautiful scenery and charming culture is a fantasy location for many women.  Melanie is smart when it comes to books and her job yet very insecure when it comes to herself.  She can hardly believe that a man like Theo was find any interest in her, especially when he says he has never met anyone like her.  Their connection is tangible through the words on the page and the reader cannot help but be swept along as their relationship buds and blossoms...

Of All Places is a wonderfully conceived and written story the flows effortless from page one. It leaves you with “all the feels” as most women can easily relate to Melanie... Of All Places is an uplifting book that will stay with you for days after you finish, as you think on Melanie and are continually encouraged to take a few risks in life and see the places it will take you."
