4 out of 5 stars
Teddi Lerner is back home in Chance, Ohio after running away from her best friend Celia’s funeral service. She is coming back for Shay, Celia’s 12-year-old daughter. Her dad is getting remarried and have asked Teddi to take their photos. She is a world known wedding photographer. Teddi has made quite the life for herself away from Chance. She is sought after, travels everywhere, and is dating her boss. What Teddi didn’t count on were the emotions and feeling of home that Chance would return to her.
They say you can’t go back home again but like Bon Jovi sings “Who says?” Everything is different but the people all seem the same. I loved this little town and how Ms. Nathan described it. I want to sit in Perk and have my coffee, or sit in the town square and people watch. Your heart goes out to Teddi. Your heart goes out to Shay and to Beck. It takes a turn that I didn’t expect but I ended up really wanting to happen. The characters were all so rich with emotion. You felt for everyone of them. I really enjoyed the book and will keep these characters with me for some time to come.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and St. Martin’s and this opinion is humbly my own.
