In this warm, high-spirited contemporary novel from author Elisa Lorello, big love can happen in the smallest of spaces.
Skye Littleton said goodbye to her job, her best friend, and her home in Rhode Island to start over in Billings, Montana, with Vance Sandler, a gorgeous guy she met online. On her cross-country flight, Skye shares her happy story with her seatmate, Harvey Wright, a Billings resident who knows Vance—and his reputation for heartbreak. Harvey’s infuriating advice to Skye? Go home.
When Skye arrives, she discovers that Vance has changed his mind and wants nothing to do with her. Despite the setback, Skye is determined to rebuild her life and begin a new chapter in Montana’s largest city, which sometimes feels like a small town. With Harvey’s help, Skye finds a job—and a passion for organizing closets and clearing out clutter. But as she grows closer to Harvey, she finds herself homesick for her former life. Could Harvey be her future, or is she his chance at revenge? Can Skye finally trust her own heart enough to let it show her the way home?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was an absolutely wonderful read! It took you from Rhode Island to Montana and on to Washington. Being from Massachusetts and close to Rhode Island, I could relate to so many of the places and I loved that. The vivid descriptions of Montana made me want to go there. It is big sky country after all. This is a story about love, loving yourself being the most important. Skye has always felt less than and this is about her journey to find herself and what she wants out of life, rather than what people expect of her. She takes us on this journey with her. I just loved the two main characters, Skye, of course, and also Harvey, whom she met on the plane. The characters are quirky and realistic. They have their ups and downs, as we all do. They jumped off of the pages and into my life! The story flows well from beginning to end. You will smile, laugh and get angry. You will love this book. My very favorite quote is: "You have to be at home inside yourself first. Then you can live anywhere." I highly recommend this quick read. You will love it as much as I did!
