Kat spends her summer vacation as a babysitter for her nephew and niece. She knows that after their parents' death her older sister Julia went through a great deal of trouble to take care of her and babysitting is the way Kat is trying to return the favor. However, Julia is giving her a really hard time, even more so after Kat has met Danny, a local builder, and the two youngsters fall in love with each other. The more the summer advances, the more serious the relationship between Danny and Kat becomes and the more Julia tries to separate the two lovers. - Until she finally succeeds.
Six years later Danny has become a well-known local builder who aspires to make his business known on national basis. His business partner contacts the best magazine in their trade and invites its best journalist to infomercial their company - and so Danny and Kat meet again. But can they revive their romance?
Danny and Kat were plausible main characters, their feelings and reactions mostly comprehensible, realistic and genuine.
The story line started in the present, flashed back to the past and returned flawlessly again to the present. The author provided a lot of emotional insight on how the hero/heroine felt during the different stages of their relationship. Generally, the main plot was well written and entertaining. There was a subplot that had to do only with Kat. This part of the book blended perfectly with the main plot and offered the necessary suspense element.
Speaking in general terms, the romance between Danny and Kat didn't develop quickly and tried to focus on their complex feelings. Mostly this was well done and entertaining enough. However, towards the middle of the book this endeavor became a bit tiresome and reminded me of a "casual" romance novel.
In any case, this was a nice and entertaining read.
