Overview

After You Were Gone by Alexis Harrington

Mitchell Tucker has come back to the small Texas town of Gila Rock looking for something Julianne Boyce has no intention of giving him: forgiveness. It’s been eight years since Mitch went to jail for starting a fire that claimed her husband’s life…and longer still since Juli and Mitch fell into a forbidden first love that their feuding families brought to an end. She’s lost too much because of his thoughtlessness to let herself fall under that familiar spell again.

But no matter how much she ignores him, Mitch isn’t leaving. Soon he’s helping out at her farm and her new store, trying to make amends, melting the cold shell Juli’s built around her heart. There’s a world of hurt and mistrust between them—but there’s also one last chance to uncover the truths that might bring them back together once more…

Mitchell comes back to that small Texas town to set right wrongs from the past and ask for forgiveness from Juli, the love he couldn't forget and whose husband he was convicted of killing. These two fight against adversity and old family feud to find the path for their future. A new book that I enjoyed from a familiar author . Ebook from Netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.

This was an excellent small town romance that showed the tougher side to small town life. Few opportunities, a lot of hard work, and people with long memories and little else to keep them occupied. Mitchell Tucker returns to Gila Rock, Tx after getting out of prison. The only thing he really wants is to see Julianne Boyce and ask for her forgiveness. Once young loves, the memories of her is all that got him through the long days of prison. Julianne has no desire to see Mitchell again but he slowly shows her that he may be the one person she can depend on. This book was very well written and these characters really stuck with me long after I finished reading their story. I would definitely recommend this one.

There’s a world of hurt and mistrust between them—but there’s also one last chance to uncover the truths that might bring them back together once more… My Thoughts Second chance romance set in a small town where everyone knows each other's business and gossip flies faster than the speed of sound. When read the book kept in mind the information provided in the blurb, even knowing ahead of time that this would end up with Mitchell and Julianne together still was not fully prepared for them to reconnect. For me everyone deserves a second chance, however some things are harder to overlook or forgive than others. What Mitchell spent 7 years in prison for before returning to Gila Rock 8 years later would be hard to get past, and Julianne did have a tough time to say the least in the beginning. My problem with the pair actually getting past that obstacle is more a personal feeling that maybe the past should have taught the couple that playing with fire literally gets one burned. Luckily they chose to ignore that lesson in favor of following their hearts. An easy to follow and easy to read story that is not easy to process without being judgmental about the characters actions or motivations. Despite my early reservations as to the advisability of Julianne and Mitchell getting their new beginning together when all was revealed it actually gave a new perspective on the couples love for each other. Although if things had worked out differently years ago they probably never would have been parted in the first place but in the end love carried the day.
