Review


I really enjoyed this book.  It's kind of got the same feel of the Weekday Bride series, but set in a small town with friends everywhere.  That I think is the biggest thing to take away from this book.  Friendship.

I really liked Melanie, Wyatt, Zoe, Luke, and Jo.  And of course Miss Gina.  She's got a lot of spunk.  Melanie finds herself returning to her home town the week of her 10 year high school reunion.  She never planned to go back, but after everything life threw at her, she needed to go home.  Her family isn't the greatest, and they get very little mention in the book.  Which is good because they probably would have made me angry.  She finds her support system in her group of childhood friends.  Even though it's been a bit since they've spoken, they have her back like nobody else.  That may be one of the things I love about small towns.  The sense of family and knowing everyone is looking out for you.

Melanie also meets Wyatt, who came to town a few years prior to make a life for himself away from the hustle and bustle.  He's an all around good guy. I love his protectiveness and cocky attitude.  He doesn't come off as a dbag, he's just confident and sure of himself.  The sparks between him and Melanie are undeniable.  And I loved seeing their friendship grow and turn into more.

There are a few moments that may be hard to read for some that involve Melanie's daughter.  And I only say that because I know as a parent it's hard for me to see anything possibly bad happen to children.  But it's nothing horrific, just unsettling.

There are events that take place that make you want to throat punch some people, but knowing that there are friends there ready to do anything for the others makes it much more enjoyable.

All in all, I did enjoy this book, and I'm ready to see what the rest of the characters of River Bend have coming up in their lives.
