Book description: "Just when Charity's wild imagination failed her, a flesh-and-blood hero walked into her life.
Best-selling author Charity Anderson returns to her hometown of Kings Meadow to defeat a bad case of writer's block. She imagines she'll spend a lonely summer writing and then return to her home in Boise. She soon finds herself caring for Buck Malone, a wilderness guide-and the object of her unrequited teenage crush. But what else can she do? Her dog Cocoa caused the accident that left Buck with a broken ankle and wrist, taking him off the trail for weeks of prime tourist-season work.
Buck and Charity have gone different ways since high school, and at first it seems they have little in common. Buck loves the simple, low-key life he's made for himself in the mountains of Idaho, and she's a woman accustomed to the faster, bustling pace of the city. But spending so much time together has Buck hoping to change her mind about staying in the small town she thought she'd left behind for good.
It's a summer for discovering that young love is a spark not soon extinguished."
My review: This is a wonderful story of forgiveness. While part of a series, this book can stand alone although after reading it, the reader will probably want to read the other books in this series. Robin Lee Hatcher does an amazing job with her characters, but especially with Charity and Buck's relationship. There were times I sat and chuckled at them, and other times I wanted to yell at them. Even though the ending is inevitable, the reader can't help but wonder at times if Charity and Buck know how the ending is supposed to go. This is a great summer read especially for fans of Robin Lee Hatcher, and one you won't want to put down. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher through the Booklook Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
