His homecoming is bittersweet…for both of them

Café owner Maddie Strong is finally ready to take her burgeoning cupcake business to the next level. With the help of handsome businessman Alex Perkins, her future’s all mapped out. Until her first love comes home.

At seventeen, Maddie adored Nate Barzonni with her whole heart and soul. But when he asked her to elope, she’d said no—she couldn’t let him throw away his dream of becoming a doctor. Then he vanished from her life for eleven years. Now the cardiac surgeon has returned to Indian Lake asking for a second chance, and Maddie has to choose between her new life…and the man she never stopped loving.

My Thoughts
Another hit from the fabulous Ms. Lanigan! She has once again used her talent and her sweet, loving characters to capture my heart completely. It certainly didn’t take me long to get through this book. It was just THAT good. From start to finish, I was entranced in this story of what the hearts can really want.

When you meet Nate and Maddie you’ll instantly fall in love with them both. They were both perfectly flawed and you could really feel the attraction between them! Ms. Lanigan had me turning the pages on this second-chance-at-love story long into the night. Each page brought me something new with Maddie, Nate and all that they were going through.

This is the second book in this series, but it’s easily a stand alone. Ms. Lanigan will steal your heart, make you smile, make you wonder and in the end leave  you ready for more of her 4 star work. She is an author that knows that just what her fans like and she doesn’t hesitate to deliver! I definitely recommend this book to all who are looking for that cozy, late night read!

How about you? Do you like stories of second chances and life changing decisions?
