Publisher's Summary

They couldn’t be more different…or more completely perfect for each other.

Claire McKenna knows about loss. The bullet wound that ended her promising professional tennis career drove her to make a quiet life for herself working with fabric samples, chatting with her book group, and spending time with her parents in her sleepy coastal Connecticut hometown. Then there was the boyfriend who dumped her to pursue her adventurous childhood friend. Now, Claire’s business has hit a financial snag, but she’s up to the challenge. After all, she can survive anything. At least she thinks so...until her teen crush, Logan, returns to town with his sister, Claire’s traitorous friend.

Photographer Logan Prescott is more playboy than homebody. But his sister’s illness teaches him that there’s more to life than chasing the next thrill. Bent on helping her win Claire’s forgiveness, he turns his charm on Claire and offers her big bucks to renovate his multimillion-dollar New York City condo.

After years of playing it safe, Claire must now take some risks. The payoff could be huge, but if it all falls apart, can her heart recover from another loss?

Critic Reviews

“Beck is in fine form in this small-town romance that’s light on sensuality but thick with emotional entanglements…Beck’s depiction of trauma, loss, friendship, and family resonates deeply. A low-key small-town romance unflinching in its portrayal of the complexities of friendship and family, and the joys and sorrows they bring.” --Kirkus Reviews

I wanted to like this novel and didn't not

Although I enjoyed the first book in this collection, this book fell flat for me. The story sprinkled in current social/political causes which seemed to be an afterthought or the political agenda of the author rather than integral to the plot and/or character development. At one point, Logan states that he always had more liberal views than his father. Shocking! How predictable. I vacillated between needing to suspend disbelief and yawning with the predictability of the characters and story.

Too much poor pitiful me

I like the series, I like the narrator, and overall it was a great story, but I felt like there was way too much poor pitiful me mantra. I liked Claire but at some point I was rolling my eyes at her because she couldn’t let things go. But it was all good. I’ll read the next story too. This is a refreshing author with good writing quality. I’ll keep coming back.
