This is such a sweet, beautiful love story!! When I read the first part of this book in the American Honey anthology last fall, I totally fell in love with Tyler King! I've been eagerly awaiting the rest of the story since then to find out what happens between Tyler and Savannah; and I'm happy to report that Heidi did NOT disappoint (like she every really could)!! Tyler and Savannah were the best of friends growing up. Playing, teasing, running around the ranch, riding horses, etc. But then Savannah's mom moves them to NYC and never brings them home for promised visits. Though Tyler and Savannah have both grown up and lost touch, neither forgot the other. Of course the Savannah McGuire that returns to Rivers Crossing is not the same girl Tyler remembers. Who returns is an angry, somewhat confused and chip on her shoulder laden seventeen year old. From the moment that Tyler realizes that he screwed up their reunion, Savannah is less than welcoming. She doesn't really want to be in Texas, though she's happy to be with her Aunt Sue & Uncle Bobby once again. Watching Savannah rediscover her love of the ranch and her attraction to Tyler is both sweet and joyful. Tyler loves this girl, but he's not gonna make it easy on her. I loved the way that they both would look at the other, realizing that there was something electric in their connection but at the same time fighting it because they are both young. Once they finally let themselves be in love, its all ripped apart by Savannah's mother (who we never see, but whom I wanna punch)when she sends her to Paris early. With Savannah in Paris and Tyler in Rivers Crossing, neither likes the separation but neither tells the other what they want. Tyler because he's afraid of rejection, and also because he knows that Savannah is still on the cusp of eighteen and lost as to what she wants and he knows she needs to find that out for herself. Savannah is roaming around Paris, just as alone and lost as she was in NYC. She's unsure of what she wants, because things are different and she's scared to give up her dreams and that she won't be enough for Tyler. I simply loved that these two thought so much about the others needs! I loved how Tyler puts it all on the line and goes to Paris after his girl! I loved how Jeremiah (he's is absolutely a riot), Aunt Sue & even Uncle Bobby (even when he was being a cranky a%%) support Tyler! This is just a beautiful, sweet story of childhood sweethearts finding their way to reunite and find their happily ever after! I sure hope we get to return to Rivers Crossing sometime, because I'd love more of Tyler, Savannah and definitely Jeremiah!!

Savannah, country girl turned city girl, needs just the person to show her that there is still that country girl in her when she is sent back to Rivers Crossing for the summer. Tyler is up to the task of teaching his childhood best friend that she belongs here and with him. Tyler is a true gentleman who makes my heart turn to mush. Savannah has a sweet sass that is slowly learning to love being back yet has plans of studying fashion in Paris. Add in a big mouthed friend in Jeremiah and some other memorable characters like Aunt Sue and Uncle Bobby and you've got yourself a sweet summer entertaining read. And as the summer ends and Savannah is headed to Paris, who or what does Savannah truly want? The transition from teen to young adulthood has Savannah wondering who she is and what she wants to be and at the same time where does Tyler fit in all this? Can Tyler wait for her to figure it all out when the ranch is all he knows and sees his future in and one he questions would be enough for her? One thing is for sure, your heart will be with both of them as they each navigate their paths in this journey as individuals and as a couple.

The first half of this story was originally released last summer as part of the American Honey anthology. Having to wait 10 months for part 2 wasn't easy. But like every story from the mind of Heidi McLaughlin, it was so worth the wait. Tyler King is a great hero. He's sweet and sexy - hot and dreamy but very much a gentleman. Doesn't get much more swoon-worthy than that. Savannah returns to her childhood home from New York as punishment and she's not happy about it. She's snooty and demands to be called Vannah. Ugh. I really wanted her to fall into a mud puddle. But as she started to readjust to life on the ranch and reconnect with her childhood friend, Tyler, I found myself liking her more and more. She became real and her vulnerability began to shine through. The summer passes by all too soon and Savannah is forced by her mother to leave early for Paris. This is where the story really digs in. Savannah is in the place she's always dreamed of but her heart is still in River's Crossing. Paris isn't what she thought it would be but it's her dream. She can't just give that up. Tyler is moping around the ranch missing his girl. He knows that he can't be a jetsetter and wonders if Savannah could ever be truly happy living on the ranch. Tyler and Savannah are so different. But their hearts are missing each other. Is there anyway they can compromise and makes things work? I knew what I wanted to happen and ultimately I got my wish but the journey to that point was filled with ups and downs. But that's the beauty of a Heidi McLaughlin book, you never know how you're going to get to there but you have a blast along the way. The supporting characters were well-rounded and great to read. Jeremiah is a tool and I wanted to slap him more than once. I would love to be there when his other half shows up on his doorstep and turns his world upside down. The one thing I would have liked is a little of Savannah's interaction with her mother. She was an off-screen character but I would have enjoyed seeing a little bit of them, especially at the end.

“If you love someone, you let them follow their dreams and hope that eventually their dreams lead them back to you.” ~ Love this quote and many others in this book!! Heidi McLaughlin has done it yet again in The Reeducation of Savannah McGuire!! This book is absolutely fantastic!! From the very first page, I was hooked. Tyler King and Savannah McGuire are reunited after Savannah moved away years ago. Tyler is so excited Savannah is coming back. Savannah is dreading the trip back to Texas. As soon as Savannah steps off the bus in Texas, things don't go as well as planned. People change over the years, that's for sure. Follow the journey of Tyler and Savannah, you will not be disappointed. I found myself laughing out loud throughout the book. I also found myself reading the book with a southern drawl in my head while reading Tyler's point of views. With Heidi's writing style, I always feel as though I am in the book with the characters. The characters are so very real with the flow of the story that you feel their emotions. Love these characters!!! I highly recommend The Reeducation of Savannah McGuire to everyone! You will not be able to put this story down, I guarantee it!!! On a side note, I really hope we get to read more from these characters!! I think Jeremiah needs his own book!! That's my thoughts anyways! LOVE, LOVE The Reeducation of Savannah McGuire!! Bravo, Heidi McLaughlin!!

Who doesn't love a story about a cowboy? You have a little girl who has to move away from her childhood friends to return years later much different then what Tyler had thought, but he helps her to remember the good times they had on the farm. Heidi knows how to tug on those heart strings and make you laugh all at the same time that is what I love about her writing! I hope to see a little more of Tyler & Savannah and maybe a little something with Jeremiah :) Another great read by Heidi.
