Here we meet Samantha. She is grieving the loss of her husband and looking for a change of scenery. She falls into a quaint small town named Forrest. A writer, she finds a job at the local paper and begins a routine with the locals. She is well-liked and easily accepted. She meets Steven and instantly makes a connection and thus begins a love story full of ups and downs. Throw in another man, Brandon and Steven’s on again off again ex Jackie, and it makes for interesting drama. While the story flowed well and there were tons of character chemistry, the story may have been a bit too long. I loved reading the descriptions of the nature around the city and her cozy house. The winter feels during this hot summer was refreshing and now I sit in anticipation of the fall months. Book 2 next.
