      The characters and plot did not engage me I skimmed ahead to see if there were any story elements that would keep me interested but there were not I love small town stories that have a very modern feel, yet this one didn t There was also a lot of knitting metaphors which I didn t really relate to though the knitting needles and wool on the cover should have given me a clue this plays a big part in the book The heroine knitting a thread of hair into the hero s sweater was also a bit strange I thi [...]

      One stars What annoyed me so much about this book was how Andi let the people bother her with the whole you don t belong here any speech Who the heck cares if Andi doesn t belong in that town any She belongs in NYC and there s not a damn problem with that I also hated how Andi didn t even put Catherine back in her place Catherine doesn t have the rights to judge Andi or tell her to move back to Emerald It s not that she s too big to stay in the town, it s that she s not happy She enjoys the exci [...]

      No Bad book Bad Author Bad bad bad editors With a sweet, if not overdone, premise I had hopes that this would quench my Autumn need for glucose sweet romance Let s just say thatno, it didn t fulfill any of my needs.I wanted to like it, I really did but with the amateur writing Seriously, was this book written for an eight year old, why aren t there pictures I demand pictures and the odd point of view switch One person at a time, one person at a time I just couldn t.Look, I can t even muster up t [...]

      livetoread krystalThis book was remarkably sweet Andi is the main character She is somewhat impulsive and prone to self fulfillment at times, but she is a likable enough character Nate is the love interest, he is also the man Andi left behind favor of her growing career The sparks do fly in this novel, particularly between Andi and Nate because they do not often get along The reader will find him herself laughing at some parts of the story The Summary sums it up quite well The ending is good, a [...]

      This is a very enjoyable book I liked the small town feel of the story, and the way everyone new each other Andi Powell comes home for mixed reasons and finds that what you think like should be isn t always what it is I have to admit at times I wanted to hit her in the back of the head for the way she acted but I understood why she was written the way she was Nate Duncan on the other hand made you fall in love with him Who wouldn t fall in love with a man that would do anything for those he love [...]

      This was a reunion plot that pulled me in both directions I did love the underlying issues of the past and I loved the hero s dedication to his family responsibilities Because I m a total sucker for small town stories, I m anxious to see of this series.

      I could not connect with Andi and Nate at all, so I skipped forward until I found out what happened with Andi s grandmother s forbidden love.
