What a great start to a new series! This is a new to me author and I am excited to read future books set in this location. The characters established in this first book felt like real people, making me anxious to read about everyone’s happily ever after moments in future stories.
Wynn and Noelle were such likable characters. It was a joy to watch as the romance began to grow between them. They had such kind hearts toward others as evidenced by their interactions with Sophie and Devin.
This lakeside town was charming and an ideal location to set the series. I am glad that Marshall and Ember still have stories waiting to be told!
I read a copy of this book through Kindle Unlimited. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Event coordinator Noelle Carter’s main priority is running the successful company her grandparents founded. After all, they’re the ones who raised her, and she’s the one they entrusted their business to after their deaths. So when a letter comes across her desk inviting her to plan the annual Spring Fling event in her grandmother’s hometown of Balsam Falls, Nebraska, she’s faced with a choice: stay and work on maintaining Carter, Inc.’s current success, or go and take a leap of faith–outside her comfort zone.
For contractor Wynn Bryant, helping others is the key to life’s greatest blessings. Over the past ten years, he and his brother have built homes for those who need them, creating a reputable name for themselves. Between that and helping out at the Serendipity Inn, his parents’ bed and breakfast, he’s put his other dreams on the back burner for now. Until the mayor ropes him into restoring The Gardens with a beautiful but guarded young CEO from Mississippi.
Connected by a desire to help others, Wynn and Noelle dive into restoring a neglected piece of Balsam Falls’s history while learning from, and of, their own pasts. Together they uncover past secrets, face current challenges, and help each other discover healing and forgiveness in ways neither imagined. Will their discoveries lead to love, or are some things better left as they are?
