Three years ago, Jayne didn't want to hold Forrest back from his dream, so she told him to go ahead and join the Peace Corps and go to Ghana. Yet she keeps accusing him of choosing a foreign country over her. When he left, she changed her cellphone number and closed down her Facebook account, and every time he wrote her letters, she marked them "return to sender", not bothering to open any. The poor guy was understandably confused, because she was the one who said it was ok for him to go, and they had an understanding that they'd keep in touch and see how things were after his two years in Ghana. I didn't like that she is the one who cut him off, yet she had the gall to blame him for how things had turned out. She also made assumptions about him and what he wanted from life, without bothering to ask if they were true. Either that, or she wilfully disregarded what he had told her, weaving a different story in her head.
Either way, I didn't like her, and this was a problem because the story was written in first person from her POV. I didn't like the way she treated Forrest and I felt he deserved better. I wanted him to end up with someone who would appreciate him. He had to work far too hard for her, and she stubbornly refused to see what a gem he was, resenting him each time he tried to help her.
I would read other books by this author, because the story was well-written. It's just a pity that I didn't like the h in this story, so this ruined the romance for me.
I would have loved to see this story from both POV, maybe it might have made a difference. But as it stands....it was okay, but nothing that really grabbed me.
Jayne sets up 3 rules for Forrest while they're working together, which is good because she ends up having to work with Forrest more than she thought she would. The problem is Jayne never stopped loving Forrest, and it seems everyone around her can see it but her. (I guess she couldn't see the 'Forrest' for the trees. Hee hee. Sorry, I couldn't resist). Some things start happening around the ranch causing problems for the sleigh rides and Jayne ends up getting hurt. Of course Forrest is there to help and they finally have "the talk" they should've had a long time ago.
I enjoyed this sweet novella. Jayne's family is close and they all work together and help each other run the ranch and the restaurant. Forrest sounded dreamy--tall (I mean Jayne had to look up to him and she's 6'3"!!), with dark hair and eyes. I got frustrated with Jayne because she kept blaming Forrest for leaving after college, but she's the one who made it impossible for him to contact her so they could try and work things out. I'll chalk it up to the fact that she was 22 years old and you don't always do the smartest things at that age. This is a quick, clean read.

She was a bit juvenile and stubborn.
He was stubborn enough to hold on to her. :D
