Charlotte has returned to Auburn to hide from the paparazzi, but she also needs to reconnect with her sister, who she hasn't spoken to in 8 years, and somehow make it up to her ex-fiance (Doug) for how she ran out on him without an explanation. Add in some strange things happening and a dead body from about 20 years ago and Mina may not be able to keep her secrets hidden much longer.
I liked how the book was mostly about the characters and there was some mystery too. It has a slight paranormal aspect involving Mina, Charlotte and their deceased mother, who also had an "ability" which was different than Mina's. Even though Mina has agoraphobia she's a strong person and won't be pushed around. I liked how Charlotte realizes at the end that she needs to find her true self. The title of the book didn't make much sense to me until more than half way through.
Jessica L. Randall is a new author to me. This is the 2nd book in a series of 3, but I understand they're separate stories with a few characters that show up in each book. This is a clean romance.
Bernadette could have been a tad bit more flashy, but we find out that she’s lost herself. She had always taken on the roles that people had assigned to her and she’d never taken time to find out who she was. Having known true agoraphobics, I’d have to say Jessica Randall nailed Mina pretty good. It is amusing that Mina is a travel blogger and makes her living that way, especially since she hasn’t stepped foot out of Auburn, Nebraska since their mother moved them there years ago.
The book was well-written. I got this copy a long time ago, so I don’t know if any updates or changes have been made to it. The most disturbing thing about it was the initial formatting errors. Being in contact with authors on a regular basis, I know that formatting is not easy. However, this did not detract much from the story. I only noticed the formatting right at the very beginning. By now, it could very well be fixed. There were a few errors here and there, but not so many that it detracted from the story. All in all, it was quite well done and I enjoyed reading it. I read it in a single day, as a matter of fact. It was an easy and fun read. I also didn’t know it is technically the second in a series. It easily stands on its own, unlike many series books. I’d recommend it if you wanted something quick and fun to read.

When she wakes up it's to the clamour of voices outside. Why? Then her eyes fall onto evidence that her sister is once again back home. She hasn't left her home town since her mother brought her here years ago and now runs a travel blog. Her sister is escaping from the clutches of a controlling, aggressive male star that feels he can do anything he likes including cheating on her. Her arrival stirs up not only the locals but also her ex-fiance and the ghost of a woman seeking her child. When bones are discovered outside the diner her former fiance owns her spirit gets free. What happens when the reclusive sister is pushed to the limits by a journalist? What happens when the Mean girl of her youth tries to stir up trouble for the diner's owner because he rejected her? Then to really mix it up what happens when the controlling male star arrives and threatens the diner and the people closest to her if she doesn't toe the line?
