Blurb: Darren Kelley loves his town, his job as a volunteer firefighter, and working at a shelter for abandoned horses. He couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Until the cute girl from high school returns to town, all grown up.

Angie Davis is a pastry chef working at a popular restaurant in Boston. When her mother runs off with her latest toy boy, Angie rushes back to her small hometown in Maine to rescue the family pasta factory. Not content to return to the boonies, she decides to sell the business, fast, and get back to her real life. But before she can escape, she meets up with the man of her high school fantasies, and questions whether she needs the bright lights and big city to be happy.

Review: A cute coming home story.

Coming home isn’t always what we might think it will be…sometimes it’s even better and that point is nailed in this story. Home town, old school mates, the house you grew up in. Memories can be found around every corner and not all of them are good. Hell some you forgot about but now realize how great they were.

Mom was one that I wanted to shake a couple times but then again, she should be allowed to be happy too.

I really liked the way these two got "re-introduced" to each other.  Made me smile.

All in all a worthwhile read that at times may have been rushed, it was still really cute and one that I can say I would read again. While at times I thought Cripes was a bit over used and made Angie seem young, the story resonated with me and I was able to look past it.
