    My Summary: When Maudie Cooper died, the town rejoiced. She wasn

    My Summary:
    When Maudie Cooper died, the town rejoiced. She wasn't exactly liked because, she liked to gossip and she was quick to point out who was cheating on whom. So, you can imagine the town's surprise when Maudie's illegitimate daughter Sara comes to town after her funeral.

    Sara McLaughlin never knew she was adopted, so when she receives a letter stating that her birth mother had died, to say she was surprised would be an understatement. When Sara responds to the letter sent by Maudie's attorney, Grant St. Romaine, she never expect to find a handsome young guy. As Grant explains the details of Maudie's will to Sara, she's unsure if she can follow through with the plan. When she finds out that Grant was Maudie's roommate, things become much more interesting and the thought of staying put for six weeks doesn't seem so bad after all.

    My Take:
    I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this book. The blurb for the book sounded good, but I was trying to figure out how the cover reflected the story. I thought maybe it would be a cheeky romance, but what I found was a really lovely story about new love, old love, and finding out who you are.

    When the story begins with Maudie's death, it's being told from a local reporters point of view. I won't say how it ends, but the ending is also told from the reporters POV. However, the rest of the story is told from Sara's point of view. It made it easier to get a reading on her and what was happening throughout the process of finding her answers. I really felt for Sara having to learn such a shocking bit of information. I can't imagine learning that not only are you adopted, but your birth mother has just passed away and you have no answers. Because Sara's adoptive parents have also passed away, she's left unraveling the mystery of why she was adopted, what kind of person her mother really was, and who her father is. She hopes that by finding her father, she can solve the mystery of why they let her go.

    I loved following the clues in figuring out who her father was. Since the setting takes place in a small town, they all knew each other since childhood. So many different theories on who Sara's father was, kept floating around. As soon as she felt like she had the answer, more pieces of the truth would be revealed. Even though this was somewhat of a bittersweet story, it was kind of fun figuring out who her father was.

    As for the romance, I felt like the romance was a little light between Sara and Grant. They have an instant attraction, but don't act on it immediately. He does provide her with a load of emotional support through the process. In fact, he seems just as invested in finding out the truth as she is. The relationship that does evolve turns out to be very sweet. I think I just felt more like I was reading Maudie's love story than Sara and Grant, which wasn't disappointing. Maudie had such a rough go at love, so I was completely on board with seeing what had happened with her and Sara's father.

    My overall thoughts are: it really was a pleasant read. It's a short read that only took me a few hours to finish. I was entertained the entire time. I read this book while on a road trip and it was perfect way to fill my time in the car. If you are looking for a sweet love story that has a little bit of mystery to it, this is the perfect book for you.
