What a pleasant way to spend a day reading! This is a short, quick read about two people who went different ways with their lives and are now back in their hometown at the same time. Evan Hawke is repairing his mom’s house so that he and his brother can sell it. Addie is renovating her Tito and Tita’a old B&B so that she can establish a future for herself and her small son Sawyer. With a tight budget and not much know how about fixing things, it is a natural progression for her old boyfriend Evan to offer to help Addie get her place ready for the big grand re-opening. The response of Sawyer to Evan was immediate and endearing. Of course, there is no mystery here about what should happen between the two. The difficulty lies in the terrible secret that Addie is keeping hidden from Evan, a problem so soul-wrenching that it may tear the two apart again before they can really get together. I loved the interaction between Evan and Sawyer and how natural it was. I also enjoyed Sawyer’s precocious antics as he squirmed his way into Evan’s heart and played with Evan’s dog Belay as if they were best friends. The whole story was just a feel-good story, with a definite conflict that had to be resolved. With a theme of forgiveness and redemption, it is the perfect tale to read to offer feelings of hope and joy. Fans of light romance with a Christian perspective will definitely enjoy this book!
