She needs a fresh start.
He needs her to see how he’s changed.
Can time really heal everything and make a second chance at love possible?
Reeling from a painful divorce, and with a teenager in town, Cam’s returned to her hometown to heal. Not only is Timber Creek the only place that’s ever felt like home, her best friends are there...and the first boy she ever really loved.
Evan has only ever loved one woman. Sixteen years ago he knew he wasn’t good enough for her, but now she’s back, and time has a way of changing things.
Cam’s got her hands full trying to come to grips with her new life. The last thing she needs is to get involved with Evan again. But their attraction is impossible to ignore, and the connection that existed between them so many years ago is still very much alive.
This could be the second chance they’ve always wanted, but there are years of hurt and misunderstandings between them. Never mind the truth of the past and the reality of the present that could once again threaten to pull them apart. This time for good.
A delightful story
A lovely story. Cam is reeling from going through divorce proceedings, after her marriage imploded on the television, for the world to see, her husband was a well-known anchorman on the local news channel. She fled from her home in Portland to Timber Creek, where she had spent a happy childhood, and still had friends. Her daughter Morgan was with her, but she could not cope with her father's apparent rejection of her, she had become morose and sullen, blaming her mother for everything. They had little money, her husband had almost cleared their bank account and Cam had little money of her own, as soon as they were settled in the small, scruffy apartment her friend Christy had found for them her first priority was to find a job.
The first person they see in town is Evan, now a police officer, when she lived in Timber Creek he had been her boyfriend, and they have unresolved issues; Evan had left town right after their high school graduation ball, without leaving any message or reason for going.
This story feels very real, the emotions are well-written, especially Morgan's, this is a living, breathing fifteen year-old we can all recognise! This will be a good series, Elena has lightly touched on the issues in the lives of Cam's three friends, Christy, Amber and Drew, all very different problems in their lives.
Very well worth reading.
