About The Book

Ava Simon designs storage boxes for STÄDA, a slick Brooklyn-based furniture company. She’s hard-working, obsessive, and heartbroken from a tragedy that killed her girlfriend and upended her life. It’s been years since she’s let anyone in.
But when Ava’s new boss—the young and magnetic Mat Putnam—offers Ava a ride home one afternoon, an unlikely relationship blossoms. Ava remembers how rewarding it can be to open up—and, despite her instincts, she becomes enamored. But Mat isn’t who he claims to be, and the romance takes a sharp turn.


My Thoughts

When I read the words “A Very Nice Box”, it reminds me of a beautiful and proportionate box, with a light brown colour. What about you? 
I think the “Nice Box” is a character in this book, it has an important part in the story and it’s more or less the life of Ava Simon. In the beginning, she is seeing the life around her like a draft, without fully connecting with the people around her. As the story progresses and the box is getting created her perspective of life and people around her change till it becomes real and she is ready to interact with it. A beautiful journey that will be impossible to forget, Ava is a precious woman that deserves all the good in the world.
I was really interested with this book, it’s not a mystery story but it has a little bit of intrigue, it is not a romance book but it has love; it’s not an easy book to describe but a very interesting read. 
I think Ava is the small part we all have that don’t want to change or forget, that wants to be alone sometimes and not to have to be boxed; special, intelligent but don’t like the spotlight. But don’t think that she is cold or heartless, she has a past, like all that changed her, but now, like the “Nice Box”, it’s time to get real and maybe see life in a different perspective.
