Publisher's Summary

Just shy of her thirtieth birthday, Haley Carston returns to Redbud Trails, Oklahoma, to care for her dying aunt. She thinks she's ready for this homecoming. She's spent years escaping her perpetual shyness and being Katie Michaels' tag-along friend, but being back in her hometown brings back a lot of old memories, especially when she is faced with the cowboy she never forgot Katie's older brother, Maddox.

Twelve years ago, Maddox Michaels was supposed to be somebody. He had everything. A football scholarship. A Division I team scouting him. Maybe even a chance at the pros. Now, he's a burned-out cowboy working day and night to stay ahead of his brother's medical bills and keep their family farm from going bankrupt. And trying to be a father-figure for his niece, Olivia.

When Haley and Olivia start spending time together, Maddox can't help remembering those dreams that died alongside his sister. Will being with Haley open his heart to new dreams?

Hailey and Maddox!

It’s been a decade since Haley lived in Red Bud when her father uprooted her once again looking for the next greatest opportunity, but she remembers her time there fondly. Now that her Aunt, who has been her greatest support system, has terminal cancer she returns to her hometown so that she can spend as much time with her as she can. Maddox was Haley’s best friend’s older brother who also took her to the Prom. His life has not turned out the way he wanted so he finds himself struggling financially and emotionally as he tries to do the best for his family. Not only is the chemistry and connection between Haley and Maddox stronger than ever and she gives hope not only to him but to his entire family. He has his farm in Red Bud and her life is in Oklahoma City will they be able to find out what is truly important before it is too late? I enjoyed the pacing and tone from the narrator of this story.

Missed your high school reunions?

Missed your high school reunions? Ever wondered what’s happen with high school friends? This book takes the lives of three high school friends after they were reunited after 12 - 13 years. Great characterizations. Full of surprises. A must-read book. The audio book narration was excellent.

Big question left unaddressed

I loved most of the story but some parts simply didn’t fit. Olivia’s father was never mentioned. And dealing with so much insurance issues after her aunt’s death was way overblown. More common would be some mention of settling the estate, no bequeaths were mentioned.

Sweet Heartfelt Novella

I love the way this story was written. It starts off with our heroine, seventeen years old Haley Carston looking into a full length mirror at her pink poofed prom dress. She looked like a strawberry cupcake. This was a mistake. Why had she let her best friend Katie talk her into this. She and Katie were total opposites. Haley had just moved into town and was extremely shy. From the first day Katie, the out going popular girl had taken her under her wing. Her date for the prom was Katie's older brother Maddox, who she is secretly crushing over. Many years later when Haley returns to town to take care of her aunt, who has been diagnosed with cancer, she never thought about running into Maddox. But every girl remembers her first kiss. Lacy Williams does such a great job weaving for us a heart warming novella. Haley's return to town helps each of the family members learn to grow and move on. I enjoyed and would recommend this book. Being able to listen to it as an audible book made it even more enjoyable.
