Although she has created a new life for herself away from the drama, secrets and stress of the small town, she must return upon her grandmother’s death. Her return brings back wonderful memories, especially of Marc, but also horrible fears from the past.
When fate throws her and Marc together once again, how can they ignore the everlasting love and desire between them? Will Kate stay and face her demons or will the deceit and secrets of the past destroy any future they may have and force her to leave again?
This book can be read as a stand alone, but for more enjoyment read them in the order of the series, as all the characters appear in future books.

Kate McAdams returns to her hometown of Willow Valley after the death of her grandmother. She has not been back home in many years. As we read along we discover there is a lot more at play. Kate was forced to leave town leaving her family and the love of her life, Marc Caliendo behind. There are a lot of hidden secrets. I felt like a detective trying to figure out what the secret was, who was involved, and who could be trusted. It took me a little bit to warm up to Kate as it seemed at first she had a hidden agenda. Once everything starts to unravel and the secrets are told you find out just how strong of a person Kate was and is. I love the fact that Marc and Kate's love for each other didn't die over the years. There is one final secret that could destroy any chance of a future of these two together. It took me by surprise.
I liked this second chance romance because it has plenty of small town ambience that is sure to make this series a lot of fun to read. Both Kate and Marc come from large families and both sets of siblings love to get into all kinds of shenanigans that are typical with siblings and really added to my enjoyment of the story. I loved the OMG moments when shocking family secrets are revealed that have serious consequences for both families because they really threw me for a loop. I have to say I was disappointed to find missing words, misspelled words and duplicated sentences throughout the book and time line mistakes that were very confusing and should have been corrected. There is no excuse for not taking the time for proofreading. I give this book 3 & 3/4 stars.I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
This is a fun easy read. Full of great family enjoyment, a little drama and humor. All mixed with romance. I recommend reading
Fun story, but... There were places when I had to read it over and over again to try to figure out what it said , misplaced clauses, restated clauses, missing something...verb, noun, article, something.
