My Review

Coming home always brings back memories and sometimes we have the chance to do it all over again. That’s what happens to Katie and Alex. They have the chance to start something beautiful, but this means Alex will have to prove he’s here to stay and Katie has to make room for this old love into her heart and plans.

I loved the story very much. Even from the start, the characters’ honesty is very vivid. Katie is back in town to attend her uncle’s funeral. She is honest when it comes to her feelings towards her relatives and her surprise at seeing Alex is genuine. He, on the other hand, is struck with grief at loosing another comrade. Though his injury is keeping him away from army, he still feels it as part of his soul. When they finally meet, their hesitation is so palpable. Kirsten Fullmer did a wonderful job expressing their emotions and capturing every feeling in words.

So we have established that the romance and the characters were very well created. Except that, we see a woman trying to start a business and we see her put her mind to it. We have meddling people, the kind that will put their nose into other’s lives. But it makes the story fun and alive. I liked their “contribution” and it provides that small town feeling.

All in all, I liked this book quite a lot. The reason for not giving all my stars is that there were moments where the alternation between the points of view bothered me. We see too little of one character before moving to the next. Also, I keep wondering, if Alex wouldn’t have gotten hurt, had their love found its place again?  Enjoy 🙂

Kirsten grew up in the Western US and graduated from high school in
1984. She married soon there after and quickly built a family.
With three young children and number four on the way, she returned to
college in 1992. Her career as a draftsman included many settings
ranging from a steel fabrication shops to prestigious engineering
firms. Balancing family life with the workplace forced her to
become the queen of multitasking. In 2001, bored with the cubical
life, she moved on to teach drafting in technical college, then to
opening her own consulting firm teaching 3D engineering software. Due
to health problems, Kirsten retired in 2012 to travel with her
husband for his job. She now works writing romance novels and enjoys
spoiling her three grandchildren. Since 2017 Kirsten has lived and
worked full time in a 40′ travel trailer with her husband and her
little dog Bingo.
