Cammie Laroux is back in Alabama—again.
Dragged back to her small town to help her mother recover from surgery while rescuing the family event planning business should be a cinch. Even for a disgraced television chef, right? Wrong.
Among the many secrets Cammie’s family’s been hiding is the fact that their historic home is falling down. Oh, and the man hired to restore the house, Grey Harrison, is the same high school and college love of her life who thrashed her heart and dreams ten years ago. Yeah, that guy.
Grey, a widower with a young daughter, has never stopped loving Cammie, and when they are face to face once again, the chemistry is off the charts. Cammie may be in full-blown denial, but letting go is no longer in Grey’s vocabulary, even when winning Cammie’s forgiveness and renovating their love may seem like an impossible build even for a master architect and carpenter.
As Cammie finds herself forgetting all the reasons she can’t trust Grey or love again, he finds himself remembering all the reasons he wants her to stay with him in Alabama… forever. (Goodreads)
This is a well written debut novel by author Susan Sands. It is the story of lost love, second chances and forgiveness. It is the story of two people dealing with their pasts and deciding what they want their future to be. And how much they are willing to fight for that future.
The characters are well developed and well rounded. The author is very talented in provoking emotion in the readers. Whether it is feeling sorry for Cammie or disliking Grey immensely, the reader is sure to have thoughts and feelings about the characters. I think that is a sign of a very talented author. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written women’s contemporary book. If you enjoy taking an emotional rollercoaster ride then this book is a must read for you.
