The classic internal struggle of the "hometown girl/wanna be New York sophisticate" returns home after an unsuccessful attempt at employment and love. All this under the pretense of selling the family farm and keeping an eye on her middle aged mom who, quite frankly, is not having a bit of trouble living life without her overprotective daughter. A tangle of bad memories and secrets, the ghost of a high school boyfriend and a cutie, veterinarian next-door bound and determined to buy the farm come together in this entertaining read. I'm sure you will enjoy.
Now home, she decides that she is going to fix up the house herself and try for a better offer than what the next door neighbor offered. She also has to come to terms with her past. She doesn’t know all that happened, but something happened between her neighbor and her high school love and it didn’t end well. What he told her before his accidental death doesn’t jibe with what she sees from her neighbor.
Dr. Gordon Ruckman doesn’t understand the hostility from Helen. He knows who she is, knows that she is the ex to his partner in the veterinary practice, but with everything his partner did, he doesn’t know why he is on the receiving the anger.
This is such a great story. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t wait to get back to reading when I had to put my kindle down. The writing is great, good character development and interaction. I love the side characters as well. Definitely 5 stars for me!
Definitely, this is a great story. I was engrossed in the story from the beginning. Catching readers’ attention since the first paragraph can be hard to accomplish sometimes, but I think this not the case. Very well done.
For non-native English speakers like me, I’d like to say that the story is easy to follow, so it’s a good opportunity to learn more vocabulary while being entertained by a great story.
Hope the author is working on her next story!!
