Praise for the novels of Kendra Leigh Castle

More About the Author

Kendra Leigh Castle is a RITA award-nominated, multi-published author of contemporary and paranormal romance. Raised in the far and frozen reaches of Northern New York, where her love of curling up with a blanket and a good book came early, she penned her debut novel as a Navy wife living in the Nevada desert. Since then, she has managed to continue working in her pajamas while moving around the country. Kendra currently makes her home in Maryland, where she lives with her husband, three children, and a menagerie of pets. She drinks too much coffee, stays up too late, and loves to hear from her readers, who make this crazy job worthwhile.

For the Longest Time by Kendra Leigh Castle is the first book in her new Harvest Cove series. Sam Henry is our heroine, and as the story begins, she is driving back home to Harvest Cove, after being away for 10 years. Sam laments how everything in New York that was on its way to a promising career as an artist, falls apart, and her roommate leaves her alone. Sam does what she has to do, go back home to regroup financially. But Sam dreads going back home, since she has only been back for family affairs a few times over the years. She left as a teenager, after graduation, having suffered a heartbreak and humiliation. Sam being artist, even in her teenage years was considered a “freak”, and treated like an outcast. The High School “clique” (in-crowd) did not like her artistry clothes or hair (many colors), so she was ridiculed often for being different.

Jake Smith was the high school jock, who was a member of the “clique”. Sam had a private crush on Jake, who noticed Sam and ended up dating her a few times. Only to feel the pressure from his peers, eventually dumping her.

Now all these years later, he runs into Sam as she arrives at her mom’s house. She ends up helping him pick up some stray cats. Sam learns quickly that her childhood crush is now the town’s veterinarian, and he is even hotter than he was in his school days. But Sam is leery, and wants nothing to do with Jake, who already is eying the beautiful and grown up, Sam.

What follows is a sweet romance that builds despite what happened in the past. Sam is now stronger, with a backbone to stand up for herself. She isn’t totally confident to face Jake’s friends, who made her life a living hell, and who are still in this day, very much the same ignorant group.

It was well written. The story line was good. The problem for me were the characters and the H in particular. He never really takes full responsibility for his actions. His friends are mostly jerks. They were his lifetime friends and not mere acquaintances. Also, the author hardly described their brief time together in high school so it's difficult to understand why they had such a supposedly meaningful enduring connection. It just seemed more like purely physical attraction. Spoiler ------- the scene outside the bar is what fully ruined it for me. It seemed manipulative that instead of explaining and apologizing he blames her for not really trying and saying she just has to forgive him. Her doesn't explain he's decided he's done with his friends. At best he's just passive and that is not appealing in the H. It's so annoying that he repeatedly accuses her of "running away" when he is the one who humiliated her in front of his friends in high school supposedly because he was so scared of his strong feelings for her and then doesn't even try to get her back and waits for her to come to him in the end when he's the one who needs to make amends. Also, his ex is a horrible person and he dated her for years on and off. It's also mentioned in the book that he was fully aware she was nasty at times yet and at the bar before she kisses him he recollects he was "crazy about her" in the past (91% into the story). Again, that shows he's either very shallow or extremely passive to be in an off and on relationship with the ex.

4.25 Stars!

I really enjoyed this story, the beginning of a series about a quaint town in Massachusetts and those that reside there. We meet people that have lived in Harvest Cove their whole lives, some that have just moved here and still others that are returning to find what they are missing in their lives. I love how each has their own take on the town and what it means to them.

Sam Henry is coming home to live for awhile, she escaped ten years ago and did not want to look back but hard times in New York has forced her to recover while living with her mom. The Henry family has lived in Harvest Grove for years; they are a wealthy eclectic family that many thought were a bit odd. Sam did not fit in; she was an artist that did not have many friends, dressed in goth styles with hair colors that changed with her moods.

Jake Smith was the golden boy in high school with a circle of friends from the popular crowd. Sam and Jake became friends when it was convenient for him, but she suffered her most hurtful moment when she came up to him one day and he humiliated her in front of everyone. He knows what he did was wrong but at the time he was not ready to let go of the security of his friends.

Sam has lost her desire to paint and with the help of her new employer Zoe who owns an art gallery, she hopes to get her life back. When Jake makes it evident that he wants to begin rekindle their friendship and more again she is scared and unsure of what to do, but cute kittens and the love of animals help the couple with humor and affection.

What a heartwarming story about second chance love.
