I really enjoyed the way this story developed and I loved the fact that it hooked me right from the start. I just had to know what was going to happen next and I read it in a day!
It starts with a young 29 year old Kate losing her husband, the love of her life. We follow Kate as she learns to live and love again. She comes back to her hometown and reconnects with people from her past. This includes an ex-boyfriend as well as an old friend with long time feelings for her.
I felt really emotional while reading this book. The author Tabitha Short has a way of writing that tugs at your heartstrings. I could really feel what the characters were feeling.
Throughout the whole book I just wanted Kate to be happy! The supporting characters are all well developed and lead their own interesting lives.
I am rating this book 4 stars because it was a true to life portrayal of loss and love and the emotions that go with those events.
I recommend reading this book if you are looking for a very interesting story about life and our reactions to the people around us mixed with a bit a of romance.
I received this book as an ARC from the author.

Just finished reading this awesome, superb book! This was the first book I have read by Tabitha Short and she has great talent. I was caught up in the story right at the start. Kate had lost her husband, and if anyone knows how that feels to loose not only a husband, lover, best friend and soul mate you will relate to Kate. Broken heart, she returns home to her parents and her sister. There is so much I could tell you about this story opening door s one by one, not only getting through Kate's pain, but other friends of Kate. Her work environment threw up an unexpected obstacle too which I thought was handled excellently. I could go on and on raving enthusiastically about this book, but I don't want to give anything away too much. I have to mention that you become Kate, you feel what she feels, when she runs into the woods, I found myself screaming ` no Kate, no` !! All the characters became real to me and will stay with me for a very long time.
I was gifted an ARC by the author, I feel so blessed to have been able to read this ahead of time.
I read a LOT of books, this has gone right into my top 10 this year. Praise to the author. I can't wait to read more from her.
