Carla Laureano, whether she's creating fantasy worlds or contemporary romance worlds, never fails to captivate my heart, mind, and soul with her beautiful words, setting, and characters. This newest novel brings us back to Colorado, to a little dying town of Jasper Lake where past and present collide for both Kendall and Gabe as they work together to save her inheritance and his town. Their past is as broken as it gets and both are fearful of rejection and abandonment. But working together slowly allows them to get past that fear and to recognize and accept the love extended by those around them, especially by their family. There is great banter and dialogue and the characters are witty and pure fun, even in the midst of their battles. I loved that there is a bit of mystery and intrigue regarding Kendall's family and how she came to inherit the houses in town. Gabe's quirky, corny, and endearing sense of humor is quite delightful and his town of Jasper Lake is easy to fall in love with.
If you enjoy contemporary romance, you will totally love this book. Kudos to Carla Laureano!
