Back Cover Blurb:

New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne brings you back to Haven Point—a place made for second chances…

McKenzie Shaw would do anything for her hometown of Haven Point. It may be small, but it's never let her down…unlike gorgeous, infuriating Ben Kilpatrick. He was her childhood hero until he closed his family's factory, leaving the town's economy in shambles. Now his tech firm is considering opening a local facility. For Haven Point's sake, McKenzie has to grit her teeth and play nice.

What could a town filled with painful memories ever offer Ben? Yet seeing the town through the eyes of McKenzie—its fiery young mayor—he suddenly has his answer. If only he can resolve the animosity crackling between them, Ben may have found the place where he can build ties and find healing…a place where love arrives when it's least expected.

My Review:

Thayne brings this small town to life in a big way with her latest Haven Point novel. The novel is simultaneously emotional and romantic, leaving you with a feeling of redemption. Thayne takes the concept of second chances and spins it, proving that second chances really do happen in all walks of life. She also shows that life can be funny at the most inopportune moments. My heart may have been on my sleeve throughout, but that didn’t stop me from laughing at the characters’ antics. The story itself is intricately and realistically crafted, providing an endlessly enjoyable tale for readers.

I loved how emotionally and intellectually involved these characters were in this story, both with one another and with the town itself. The main characters were counterpoints to one another, creating a contrast that not only highlighted their personalities but truly allowed readers to see deep into the relationship. Thayne showcases all sides of the story, allowing readers to get to know all of the characters, not simply the two at the forefront.

Thayne has once again created a fantastic novel that takes readers deep into the lives of her characters. It was a heart-warming and enjoyable novel that I truly treasured.
