Goodreads: New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne brings you back to Haven Point—a place made for second chances…
McKenzie Shaw would do anything for her beloved hometown of Haven Point. It may be small and struggling, but it’s never let her down…unlike gorgeous, infuriating Ben Kilpatrick. He was her childhood hero until he closed his family’s factory, leaving the town’s economy in shambles. Now he’s back—his tech firm is considering opening a local facility. For Haven Point’s sake, McKenzie has to grit her teeth and play nice.
What could a town filled with painful memories ever offer Ben? He left Haven Point behind years ago, for good reason. Yet seeing the town through the eyes of McKenzie—its fiery young mayor—he suddenly has his answer. If only he can resolve the animosity crackling between them, Ben may have found the place where he can build ties and find healing…a place where love arrives when it’s least expected.
Ope’s Opinion: This is my first RaeAnne Thayne book and now there will be more!! This was the perfect contemporary romance book for me. It had a slow growing relationship, some twist and turns along the way, and a little family drama too. The attraction between Ben and McKenzie was obvious, but the details were kept to a minimum – Ya!!! My kind of story.
I really enjoyed the small town community where people have the kind of relationships where they really do know and care about each other. I also liked how independent McKenzie is.
I am looking forward to the next part of this series. It will be fun to see who will be the center of the story and catch up with all the other characters.
Rating: 5 – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on….
I love RaeAnne Thayne’s novels – small towns, good romance, good stories.
