Libby Potter has just lost the perfect job, the perfect apartment and the perfect boyfriend. Moving back to the home town that she couldn’t wait to escape when she was younger was definitely not on her to-do list. Especially as it means running into the man whose heart she broke when she left. Pete Bennett can still make Libby’s world stop with just the sound of his voice – even ten years on. Only now, she is the last person in the world that he wants to see. As everyone else welcomes Libby home with open arms, she realizes she’s missed that special closeness that comes from lifelong friendship. And, as Libby seeks to make amends with Pete, she begins to wonder whether she made the right choice in leaving all those years ago. When an amazing career opportunity gives her the chance to leave again, Libby will have to decide what her version of perfect is… and where she really belongs.
I know you should never judge a book by its cover but I am guilty when it comes to this book, as soon as I see the cover I just had to get my hands on a copy and luckily the publishers allowed me an ARC copy so thank you Kim!
Libby left her home town as well as the love of her life Pete just after she left school. Feeling like she was a big fish in a small pond she wanted to go out into the world and make something of herself. Now her world is falling apart and she needs to return to her home town. When she returns to White Stone she soon runs in to Pete and all her old memories come flying back but Pete doesn’t seem happy to have her back.
This was a delightful read. It isn’t a heavy plot so it is ideal if you are looking for something light to whisk you away to an idyllic setting and a cast of lovely characters. I did find the ending very predictable but I was quite happy to read the book and watch the journey to the obvious conclusion.
Libby was a great main character she seemed to go on a journey of self discovery in this book, although she has lived a very fulfilled and enjoyable life away from her home town now she is back in White Stone thoughts, feelings and emotions come back from her childhood and it is time to work things out with her mum. My favourite character though has to be Pete, he is a strong gentlemanly character who is also very caring even though his feelings have been hurt.
I would recommend this book and because of the authors easy writing style that wraps you up in the storyline from the start I can’t wait to try more books by this author.
