Righting a Wrong by Rachael Anderson- A Ripple Effect Romance + a $25 Giveaway

Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year ended in a fiasco. Only Jace Sutton knew the real reason why—that she was a spineless coward. Now, seven years later, her father's been in an accident and needs help, and Cambr has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and boards a plane, hoping against hope that Jace is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past. If only life worked that way. Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she’d led him on, bruised his heart, and left town without a backward glance, he was forced to pick up the pieces and try not to hate her for it. Eventually, he put it behind him and moved on, creating a life for himself in his beloved hometown. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jake instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs. If only it were that easy.

Woo-hoo!  I’m loving this Ripple Effect series!  I feel like such a lucky girl to be reading and reviewing them.  Righting a Wrong is written by Rachel Anderson and I just LOVE Rachel’s writing so I was especially looking forward to this one.  J

Cambri has returned to the home she once knew to help care for her father as he recovers from a heart attack.  It’s been a long time since she left and coming home brings up all sorts of memories and emotions.  When Cambri runs into her old best friend, Jace, she can’t help but remember how good she felt when she spent time with him.  She’s lived years without him, but has never forgotten how he made her feel.  She has never found anyone to compare to him but she left without looking back and she cut all ties to him in a desperate attempt to follow her dreams and become something outside the little town she grew up in.  Now she wants to apologize and reclaim that friendship (and hopefully something more!) but she just doesn’t know how.

We got to know Jace a bit in the last book.  I’m sure glad he got his own story with a happily ever after too.  You couldn’t help but feel a bit bad for the guy in Silver Linings.  But here, in Righting a Wrong, Jace finally gets a second chance at a love he thought he had lost forever.

I love both Cambri and Jace.  You can feel the camaraderie and friendship they once had rebuild and establish once again.  Thank goodness Cambri had the courage to apologize and accept the blame.  It started the change that led to the reconnection. 

There is also a struggling connection between Cambri and her father.  They express emotion and communicate in very different ways.  It was in the exchanges between Cambri and her father that I really came to love Cambri.  She is trying to help and understand her father but most of the time she just doesn’t.  I love that she won’t be bullied and stands up to her father but does it with love and a desire to take care of him.

I really loved this book.  Hopefully you will too.  This is such a sweet, clean romance series. Such a fun idea.  The next book in the series is going to be a fun one!  I can't wait to get started on it!
