When Maurie Ledbetter moves back to her hometown to open her dream shop, she calls a local construction crew for help. Former teenage crush Grant Shelton shows up on her front porch, answering the call for the construction job. Seeing Grant again brings back Maurie’s memories of her troubled childhood, and she doesn’t know if spending time around Grant is the best way to move on. But when she discovers Grant has gone through difficulties of his own, Maurie realizes that he might be the key to her own healing.
I think this book felt just like a Hallmark movie. It was sweet, gentle and endearing. The characters were both so likable. I loved that Maurie and Grant had a history- even if it was when they were both so much younger. Grant is the constant in this whole book- especially for Maurie. He was around, helping and being kind when she really needed that in her youth and he hasn't varied from those personality traits as an adult. I loved the feel of reuniting and the rekindling of old crushes and how those flames of attraction and friendship were gently fanned throughout the book. It was ever so sweet.
