In her first novel, Tari Faris has created characters that are believable, a plot that is engaging and a romance that is worth the read. One of my favorite things about it is the setting of Heritage with it's small town vibe and location by the water. There are many historic homes and Hannah is trying to save them while most are willing to watch them be torn down. It was fascinating how the author wove the theme of letting go of the old to make way for the new both emotionally and physically. It is a romance, but it also deals with belonging, finding your own path and not being held back by your past or your heritage. Not only are the main characters developing but there were quite a few secondary characters intertwined in the story. With that being said, I am interested in who the next book's story will follow.
Those who like to read Becky Wade, Denise Hunter and Melissa Tagg, will find this book to be a great choice. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next book in the series.
