Cara Wallace is stunned to find Nathan Reynolds back in Henderson County. His sudden arrival brings to the fore unresolved questions of what might have been.
How could she unwrite the past?
How could she undo the mistakes?
How could she unlove him?

Nathan Reynolds can't understand why Cara chose to stay in this small town. How could she sacrifice her career, her future and their love for a small run-down cottage in the middle of nowheresville? Whatever her reasons, Nathan intends to
find out and start over again!

Seen this book a little bit ago and I was saving it for Fall. Lucky me it was free on Amazon! I was fully willing to buy it....but I won't complain for it being free right now ;) 

Here we follow Cara Wallace and Nathan Reynolds. They had been High School sweethearts, but she needed to stay and he never wanted to come back to Henderson County. Years later Nathan and his fiancée have come to town to meet their contractor for a garden which happens to be Cara.....

This for sure should be a Hallmark movie!! This has everything. 2nd chances, small town, Cara lost her sister, she is taking care of her niece as a single parent, and Nathan rolls into town all high and mighty with his excellent job and hawt fiancée. Literally, need this to be a movie right now!

Ope! Forgot to mention a couple of crazy twists! Won't spoil it...but yeah.

I enjoyed this immensely, except for Nathan. Grrr! *shakes fist and curses his name* He was a total selfish asshat from page 1. He literally wants away so bad he doesn't care why Cara HAD to stay. She didn't WANT to. But someone had to stay and take care of her ailing mother.

And then he was a jerk to her when he came into town because Cara never called him to check on him. WHAT??? You LITERALLY walked away and said "We're done!!!!!". >_>

It took a minute, but she just forgave him all willy nilly. Like no...he needed to earn her back. Sighs. 

Other than that, I really liked this! Loved Cara and her niece. Loved the small town. I do want to see more of the town and other townsfolk. 

In the end, this is a good Fall read. Nice way to start the season! I hated Nathan and I think he needed to beg more. But yes, this would be the perfect Hallmark film.

I shall stamp this with 3 stars.
