Adi Gellar, a journalist from New York has had it with trying to find love in the city, so she heads out to a small town hoping to research and write a master of a piece about the residents and their objection to a new development project, and maybe fall in love. But what she finds is that the small town is unlike the other Hallmark small towns she’s used to from her romanticized movie obsession. But what the town has is the dreamy and delicious Finn who works for the developer.
There’s instant chemistry between the two, but when family obligations get in the way, Adi must decide what she really wants and what she’s willing to forgive, all while struggling to find a new angle to her story.
Overall, I didn’t love it as I hoped I would, but I liked it. The ending for me saved this book. I finally found that deep connection that I was looking for throughout. What I struggled with the most was that the book just didn’t capture my attention for the first half. I found the characters a tad boring to follow in the beginning and it really wasn’t until the second half that it picked up, and I became more invested. Once that happened, I fell into an enjoyable rhythm, rooting and cheering them on.
An easy read with characters you’ll grow to enjoy.
