I really love the friendships in this story.  As someone who moved away from home just after high school, I can attest to having those particular friends that you pick back up with like no time has passed.  Not only do those old friendships move this story, the other townsfolk bring a lot of warmth and love to the overall story.

The whole beginning of this book is beyond cute.  Sure, I could feel sympathize with Melanie’s frustration.  But the scene where Wyatt meets Melanie’s daughter was so fun.  If you have kids or nieces or nephews, you will totally be able to see one of the youngsters you know in that position.  Lots of fun!

Catherine Bybee did a great job of getting me interested in the rest of the town and wanting to read their stories without feeling like the main story was being put on hold.  Plus, the chemistry between Wyatt and Melanie was great and seemed perfectly natural and comfortable.

A little more than halfway through this story and things get intense.  It goes from a sweet romance featuring a single mom to mystery.  This story can be predictable, but the why part of it all kept me guessing for a while.  Plus, the snippets of action kept it engaging.

I’m looking forward to the next in this series.  I’m already half-way in love with Luke and would really like to see his story with Zoe play out.

About Cheri

I'm the mom of two boys and wife to my high school sweetheart. Our oldest, Josh, is 24 and living at home while working. He just finished trade school for media arts and is looking for a job that will be a career so he can get out on his own. In the meantime he's got a steady job with benefits. Our youngest, Griffin, is 20 and in the Army. He just got married so I have also gained a daughter. Unfortunately, he is stationed in Washington so they're across the country from us. I was lucky enough to have the option of leaving the work force a few years ago, but recently went back part-time to learn a new trade working at a small family owned coffee shop.
