Though it started slow, I was not disappointed. Once she presented us all the characters, their personalities , backgrounds etc, it moved swiftly.
Our main characters are Poppy and Heath. Poppy is a young woman who throughout school had to deal with her dyslexia not only as a student, but as her feelings of insecurity and worth. Heath , a young man who is brilliant and currently owns a brewery, had many losses in his childhood and if not for Poppy’s friendship, would have been a total loner.
Opportunities present to Poppy and not only her life , but the life of those around her will change.
Aside from an interesting plot, it’s a story about how childhood losses, disabilities and our perception of ourselves, affects us later in life. That friendships are to be treasured and that sometimes that friendship can develop into our true love, and that sometimes we need to spread our wings far away to realize that what we wanted was always within reach.
I am hoping Ms Heyford will give us more stories in this series.
I was gifted this book by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
Once again Heather Heyford has done it! Another book I could not put down. I love her characters and feel as if I am leaving friends when I close the book. Poppy and Heath! What a great and heartwarming story. The return of folks from her previous great book, The Crush, made it all the more fun and fascinating.
Congratulations Heather!! Just wonderful. Thank you for the fun escape!!
Poppy is dyslexic and struggled to get through school. If it wasn’t for Heath, her best friend, she probably wouldn’t have graduated. Her small group of friends have graduated, found careers and moved on with their lives, finding their place in this small town. Poppy left town for a brief time to manage a wine shop, but ended up back at her family’s diner when the shop was sold. She’s feeling bad about her accomplishments. She has been offered a chance to be a sommelier at a famous restauranteur’s new restaurant, only she has to pass the test first. Heath once again offers to help her study.
Heath is very bright, a chemist, who turned down college in favor of starting his own very successful brewery and taking care of his dad. He is socially awkward and not good at small talk. Poppy has always dragged him along to all the get togethers, making sure he was included. Heath’s twin died young, his mom couldn’t handle it, so she left. He has been his dad’s keeper ever since. He has major trust and abandonment issues. He’s in love with Poppy but doesn’t know how to tell her. He wants her to succeed but he doesn’t want her leaving town.
When she passes her test and leaves town, Heath is devastated. Poppy becomes very successful at both her sommelier job and her modeling career. However, she soon learns success comes with a price. She has no free time, even spending her days off at parties promoting her boss’s business. On the rare occasion she does get home, she feels like she’s missing out on so much of everyone’s lives. She’s missing her hometown, her friends and family, but most of all, Heath.
I haven’t read the first book in this series or any other books by this author. I started and stopped this book many times, moved on to other books. I just wasn’t getting into it. It was taking too long to set the story up. I was having trouble relating to Heath and Poppy and I already intensely disliked Demi Barnes, recognizing her for the bully she is. I finally started liking it at around 46% and I’m glad I stuck with it. The characters developed, working through their issues and I found I liked the small town and the people in it. I’m interested in seeing where the author takes this this small town crowd next.
I gave it 3 starts because it took me so long to get invested.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC provided by NetGalley.
Heath isn’t good with change and when he sees that Poppy is really serious about passing the sommelier test and moving to Portland, he is at a crossroads. He wants Poppy to be happy, but he also wants her to stay in Clarkston working at her family’s restaurant so that he can finally pursue his growing feelings for Poppy.
Watching these two struggle to overcome their own personal challenges while coming to terms with their feelings for each other at the same time kept me engaged throughout the book and crossing my fingers at the same time. Watching socially-awkward introvert Heath force himself out of his comfort zone a bit to support outgoing Poppy was sweet and shows just how far he was willing to go for her.
