Small-town realtor Hannah Thornton has many talents–unfortunately, selling houses isn’t one of them. When a developer sets his sights on the historic homes in Heritage, Hannah turns to her best friend Luke for help. Will Luke risk his future and confront his past to help her succeed?
Having grown up in the area where this book was set, I was immediately interested in whether or not this book would accurately describe the area. It wasn’t too far off as far as the setting. It was a bit predictable and stereotypical though.
Having grown up in a small town (and having lived in small towns my whole life) I’m a tough critic. It seems like every small-town book I read has that rich/privileged guy who hasn’t changed since high school. There’s also always some flirty bimbo who also hasn’t changed since high school. Both of those characters make an appearance, and they behave exactly how you’d expect them to. There was one nice twist in the book, but overall everyone sort of acted like you’d expect and the story played out how I thought it would.
I generally prefer stories with a little more conflict and more dynamic characters; however, I realize there’s a place for easy reads that provide a happy ending without too many hiccups along the way. If that’s what you’re looking for, this might be the book for you!
