Happy November, my fellow readers. I woke up this morning and could not believe it was November already. And at work I kept writing the wrong date. October flew by. Yesterday, October 31, we had snow flurries in the air, but what can I say, I live in Michigan and you can except snow anytime. So, as the days get colder and darker, it is the time of the year for hot chocolate and reading curled up under a blanket. One more thing before I get to my review. Has anyone of you been hearing things about Thanksgiving and Christmas? Well, I have. It has been mentioned more that once at my house. My sisters and I are getting super excited about having everyone home for the holidays and shopping for Christmas presents.
Beth Whitaker isn’t supposed to be a small-town girl. She’s always dreamed of leaving Willow Grove, Illinois, for the big city, but she feels trapped, struggling to make up for a mistake that’s haunted her for years. Just when Beth is finally ready to break free, her sister impulsively buys a beloved but run-down farm on the outskirts of town, and she begs Beth to help with the restoration. Reluctantly, Beth agrees to help—and puts her own dreams on hold once again. Drew Barlow hasn’t been back to Fairwind Farm since he was a boy, and he’s spent all these years trying to outrun the pain of a past he thought he buried long ago. When he learns that the owner has passed away, his heart knows it’s finally time to do the right thing. Returning to Willow Grove, Drew revisits the old farm, where he attempts to piece together his memories and the puzzle of the crime he witnessed so long ago. Both on a journey to find peace, Beth and Drew are surprised when they begin to experience a restoration of their own. But when long-buried secrets break through the soil and the truth unfurls, will it threaten their budding relationship—and the very future of the farm?
From the very moment I started this book, I knew I was going to like this book and I did. The cover was what originally caught my attention. Don’t you think it is a cute cover? Courtney Walsh is a good author, even though this is my second book that I have read by her. I am probably going to go and pick up all of Walsh’s books and binge read.
Well, let’s talk about this book. It was an intriguing plot with a mystery, that kept me reading to till the end of the book. Each main/side character was interesting and well developed. Beth and Drew were great main characters. Both had their own and different stories.
I recommend this book. It was a good read, that I enjoyed very much.
