A big thanks to Bethany House and Netgalley for an e-book copy in exchange for my honest review.
My review: I really, really enjoyed this novel. It had me hooked pretty much from the beginning. This is my first book by this author but it will not be my last. I fell in love with the characters in this story as well as the town of Maple Valley. I cannot wait to read what is next for the Walker family. I would definitely recommend this book. And especially if you love romance. 5 stars!
Book description (from Amazon):
Kate Walker used to believe in true love and happily ever after. While her own love life may have left her brokenhearted, it hasn’t kept her from churning out made-for-TV romance movie screenplays…until a major career slump and a longing to do something meaningful send her running back to her hometown of Maple Valley.
Permanently sidelined by an injury, former NFL quarterback Colton Greene is temporarily hiding out in a friend’s hometown to avoid the media and the reminders of all he’s lost. Maple Valley seems like the perfect place to learn how to adjust to normal life. The only trouble is he’s never really done normal before.
While Kate plays things safe and Colton is all about big risks and grand gestures, they both get what it’s like to desperately need direction in life. An unexpected project gives them both a chance to jumpstart their new lives, but old wounds and new dreams are hard to ignore. Starting over wasn’t part of the plan, but could it be the best thing that’s ever happened to them?
