To call Gibson's newest contemporary romance "humorous" and "affecting" wouldn't be doing it justice. Gibson is in top form here, and the sheer magnetism of her characters and the warmth of her small-town setting will ensure that her fans devour this tale as readily as they did her last (See Jane Score). Thirty-three-year-old Daisy Lee Brooks possesses a rare maturity for a romance heroine. She has been a wife and mother for 15 years and now, as a widow, she has returned to her hometown of Lovett, Texas to set things right with the one person she has terribly wronged, Jackson Parrish, her former lover and the unwitting father of her 15-year-old son. Jackson, however, has never forgiven her for abandoning him the week his parents died and marrying their mutual best friend, Steven, and he's determined to avoid hera task made difficult by Daisy's persistence and his still intense attraction to her. Although the sexual chemistry between the two is near palpable and their banter never lacks for wit, what's really impressive is how much the protagonists grow throughout the book and have grown since their initial affair, which is revealed through flashbacks. Secondary characters like Daisy's smart-alecky son and her bitter, newly divorced sister also shine, making this a well-rounded and truly noteworthy read.

I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy this story after I started reading it because honestly, I don’t like the fact that Daisy was so dense. Read more
Not my favorite by this author. I ended up skimming quite a bit as it did drag. I love second chance romance and even secret baby plots but can't say I've ever read of a secret 15... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Kindle Customer
For me this was a good one, but I really enjoy reading all Rachel Gibson's books. These characters aren't perfect and that's what makes them real. Read morePublished 5 months ago by kstar0330
The book started out slow so I decided to give it two chapters and if it did not improve I would stop. It did improve and eventually got really good. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Paula B.
