Can people truly change?

Two things keep Holly Campbell grounded: her precocious son and preserving her forty-year-old family diner in the face of expansion and change. She doesn't need a blast from the past like Luke Saxon, who's back in Butterfly Harbor after more than a decade away. The hard-luck kid who nearly destroyed her family, leaving her to pick up the pieces, is taking over as sheriff. She can't trust him, even if Luke's ideas for the town's upcoming anniversary seem to show he's trying to give back to their community. Has Butterfly Harbor found its unlikely savior? And has the widowed single mother finally found a man she can believe in, rely on…and love?

Harlequin Heartwarming!  I love this line of books.  I'm always excited to be a part of reading and reviewing titles from this line because I know exactly what I'm in for.  These books are sweet and clean and well, Heartwarming.  :)  

Luke had a rough childhood.  He made a big mistake and paid a heavy price but someone believed in him and gave him a second chance.  Luke used that second chance and made something productive and good happen.  Life is hard though and Luke returns to Butterfly Harbor battered and bruised but full of determination to face his demons and redeem himself.  As a reader, I couldn't help but love Luke.

Holly holds onto a lot of hurt and resentment, especially when it comes to Luke.  When he shows back up in town, Holly is full of bitter.  It takes a whole town and many events to calm Holly but at least she knows how to admit her mistakes and offer an apology.

This book focused more on healing and redemption than on romance.  It was a community book and by that I mean that while there were a couple of main characters, it was more about the whole community than just those two characters.  This book felt to me like made for TV, feel good film.  I would watch this book on TV!  I enjoyed my time in Butterfly Harbor and look forward to going back again with another character.

USA Today and national bestselling author Anna J. Stewart can't remember a time she didn't have a book in her hands or a story in her head. Early obsessions with Star Wars, Star Trek and Wonder Woman set her on the path to creating fun, funny, and family centric romances with happily ever afters for the independent heroines she writes for both Harlequin and Berkley. Anna lives in Northern California where she deals with a serious Supernatural & Sherlock addiction, surrounds herself with friends and family and tolerates an overly affectionate cat named Snickers (or perhaps it's Snickers who tolerates her).
