He swore he'd never return home. Then a flat tire lands Dean Presley back in Grass Lake, Tennessee, and he's forced to confront the woman he left behind. Faith Stratton was once the love of his life. Now her gifted brother could be the rising Nashville star Dean needs for his struggling music label. But it means taking Sawyer away from the horse therapy farm that Faith's so proud of. That won't be easy, especially since those old feelings that started all the trouble... Well, let's just say he can't go back there, because he doesn't want to relive the memories of the terrible accident that drove them apart.
Happy release day to The Girl He Used to Love!
I'm super excited about this new book from Amy Vastine. She's one of my favorite Harlequin Heartwarming authors and I do believe this is the first of a new series by her.
This is a second chance at first love kind of book. Dean and Faith reconnect after years of separation. They parted heartbroken over an accident and the loss of a loved one. Blame and pride make their re-connection a difficult one but an oh, so good one.
I really did love the characters in this book as well as all the secondary characters. There was something real and tangible about the relationships and the struggles faced. I was in it from beginning to end.
Sawyer (Faith's brother) sort of stole a bit of the show for me and I am really hoping the next book in this series is all about him!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
