Back Cover Blurb:
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.
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.
