  • Loved It!!

    Lexi Eddings is a new author for me and I love finding to authors. When I heard the name of this book I knew it was one I wanted to read, but when I found the book description I was more than intrigued. Of course the beautiful cover just gives a glimpse of the wonderful story inside. I loved everything about this book! From the plot to the characters, and did I mention Lexi has included recipes from the Green Apple Grill. Yes, an author after my heart. This story is set in the foothills of the Ozarks in a small town of Coldwater Cove. Coldwater Cove is your typical small town with one exception. It has the Methodist prayer chain. Everyone and everything makes it there, not out of meanness though. Lacy Evans has arrived back home. Willingly? No, it was a matter of necessity. The last few months have been difficult to say the least, but her survival instincts kicked in. She doesn't expect a warm welcome, but life has many surprises in store for her yet. I liked Lacy mostly because she takes lemons and makes lemonade. She's faced with not only starting over in the place she begun, but also facing the fact everyone has heard about her mistakes. She plans to first find a place to live, then a job and hopefully finally lay her past to rest. In this story we meet a variety of interesting characters, but Jake Tyler stole my heart and there's no other way to put it. He was the guy who stole every girl's heart in high school with that crooked little grin. Of course life has not gone as planned for him, but it rarely does for anyone. He received a football scholarship to college where he obtained several concussions, then a stint in the marines where he obtained injuries, both seen and unseen, and home he came to take over and run the Green Apple Grill. Then there's Daniel, Lacy's ex, who is now wearing the sheriff's badge and sporting a wedding ring. This story contains elements of humor, heartbreak, second chances, faith and love. This is a wonderful story about going home and finding that even though some things stay the same, somethings are different. But has it really, or have we changed? This is a story I would recommend to anyone who loves a clean, sweet romance. **I received this book from the author for a honest review without bias or outside influence.

  • Contemporary Romance

    Coming home under a dark cloud and with heavy debt Lacy Evans is not sure where her future will lead her. Having done well in Boston till her partner absconded with half a million dollars and having tried to make restitution has left her feeling a bit bleak, in debt and questioning her ability to judge people. Back in her hometown after some time away she begins to make a life for herself. She makes new friends and meets up with some old ones. Both her fifth grade and high school sweethearts are still in town but one is married and the other, Jacob Tyler, has returned from military service minus one leg. Jacob has changed from high school heartbreaker to a much more serious man. He has become religious, is a business owner and gives back to the community. He also has rather sever PTSD. Add into the mix a club that has formed to give back and finds that in doing so they feel they are benefiting more than they receive, a prayer chain, gossip aplenty, a couple of people dealing with PTSD and another couplethat are dealing with addictions and there is plenty to keep this book moving. If you are looking for a cozy, clean, small-town romance then this might be the book for you. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC of this book in exchange for my hones review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • great start to a new series

    I have to admit that one of my favorite parts of this story are the bits from the newspaper that would occasionally appear at the start of the chapters. They give a fun little peek into the quirkiness of Coldwater and endear the residents to the reader even more. Small town life often has its own rhythm and this one is no different. Lacy is not a perfect heroine and she has a lot of self-evaluation that she needs to do. Her time away from her hometown has changed her in ways that might not have been all that great. After life pushes her down a little, being back with a slower pace and extra time on her hands means she's looking at who she is (and who she wants to be) a little more closely … and looking at an old classmate a bit differently as well. For the most part, Jake may seem to have himself all figured out but he has more scars from the war than a missing leg can account for. The opportunity at a relationship with Lacy is throwing things a little off kilter for him – mostly in a good way, but it’s also shining a light on some things that he’s not looked at all that closely. Unfortunately to move forward he has to look at his past as well. And it could prove painful. There are also some great secondary stories involving Lacy’s old flame Daniel & his family and an old Vietnam vet whose life has spiraled out of control for years. All of the plot lines, major and minor, deal with quite a few deep issues – addiction, PTSD, homelessness, abuse … they aren’t easy things but they are important and Eddings does a fantastic job of addressing them well. It's the start of a new series and I’m really liking what I’m seeing here. Can't wait to see what comes next! *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s. ***
