I’m going to be totally honest, I struggled a bit to get into this book but once I did I was able to bond with the characters and feel more involved in their story
Ben is a millionaire COO of a tech company who has been sent to Haven Point to look into the potential to expand there. The only problem is that Haven Point was Ben’s childhood town and he doesn’t have overly fond memories of his childhood
He rents a house by the lake, one of the attractions of the area, and finds himself living next door to McKenzie, the towns young and attractive mayor who was childhood friends with his sister
Ben didn’t leave Haven Point under the best of circumstances, closing one of the areas main employer and letting some local buildings become run down, places he had inherited from his late father. McKenzie realises that to get Ben’s tech company to invest in Haven Point she needs to change his mind and sets about trying to show him the town in a different light
Sparks fly between McKenzie and Ben and their developing relationship kept me reading, wanting to find out how it turned out for them
This book isn’t the traditional Mills and Boon type book that I had discovered before and I think that can be a positive. The story isn’t threatening and the characters reflect their love of their town
I would recommend this book to anyone who has lived in an area which has had some issues as it can show that these may not be permanent and not everything you hear via the proverbial grape vine is the truth!
