Holly has had so much loss in her life, loss her mother and grandparents, but she refuses to let it hold her down.She leaves her small town pursue her dream of interior design. She made it, just got a huge promotion a senior designer, she's ecstatic. Then with a phone call her whole world changes. The death of her sister and brother-in-law, leave her a new mother and the feeling that she has no one left. Deciding to go back to her hometown, where she hasn't been in 10 years, to renovate and sell the family home, to ensure a secure future for her niece. Well she is there her perspective on life changes.




Quinn is a old friend of Holly's family, he also runs a large contractual business. Holly hires his company to complete her renovations. During the time spent together there is a lot of tension between them. Before Holly had left for school she had professed her love for him, he turned her down and now realizes that was a mistake.




I thought this was a wonderful story, that has a beautiful lesson. I felt for Holly and her fears that she had developed through her life. I loved Quinn!!! All the characters were very likable and relatable!!! I can't wait to read another of Victoria James books!!!

Ugh

This book was lacking feeling. I mean no real plot just that she was scared to love. I really didnt enjoy it and i felt it was a waist of my time. Could have been a good book. Short only about 140pgs

    Your first love? The boy next door? The one that got away? Who could resist? I am a sucker for a coming-home-romance. And then you throw in a baby and I am a goner. I smiled, I cried a bit (little bit), and I laughed. I enjoyed the overly determined Holly, and the protective Quinn...oh, Quinn. Hannah has had it rough. She's lost everyone in her life and is going back to the house that reminds her of them the most. And she comes back to find that the man she has always loved is still there and looking better than ever. But what is she going to do? She's created a life for herself in the city and doesn't have any plans of staying in the country.
    Oh Victoria James...you sure know how to lure a girl in. I fell for Quinn...who wouldn't? And sometimes, some of things he said made my toes curl.




    Good:




    Quinn--Hot handy man alert! ¿ I want one.




    Bad:




    Not too sure if I was feeling Hannah




    Sadly, there wasn't a lot of depth...although their past relationship did make me feel it a little, but I felt like there was something missing to make this romance mind-blowing.




    Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):




    Overall, it was a very good read. I didn't have any issues with the writing, other than the plot was missing a little something.




    This book was provided courtesy of the author/publisher for review; however, this is no way affected my review.
