Goodreads:  Celeste Nichols has always preferred to keep to herself in her hometown of Pine Gulch, Idaho…until she becomes an instant celebrity! When one of her children's stories becomes a major success, she's suddenly the talk of the town. Celeste should be gloriously happy…but something, someone, special is still missing from her life. Could the return of her childhood crush be the answer?  

Flynn Delaney has moved back home for his daughter's sake. Yet all the millionaire's resources can't help the little girl heal from the tragic loss of her mother. Shy librarian Celeste and her stories do hold some indefinable magic, though. Flynn came home looking for support—can he find that, and true love, in the one who got away?

Kritters Thoughts:  A book in the middle of a series, but this is one of those series where you can dip in and out and each book centers around a different character in the same town.  The main characters in this book are Celeste who is from a family that has lived in Pine Gulch for a long time and there is some drama in her past, but she is trying to live a life after the past.  Flynn Delaney has come back to this small town where he summered as a kid to clean up his grandmother's home and he always has positive memories from this town and with a child who has just survived a tragedy this small town may have some healing properties for them.

I loved the main characters in this book.  An author/librarian and a father who is trying to put his daughter first where just great to read about.  Of course as a reader, a book about an author is always a good read.  I loved reading about how her books came about and then the struggle to decide the future for her books, loved it!  

Even though I was inserting myself far into the series, I didn't feel clueless.  RaeAnne Thayne gives you enough of the back story for each character in an easy way so you can just get into their story and know enough about them to enjoy it.  

As I say often romance books are typically predictable and before you even open the book you will know how it ends, but as always the ending isn't the reason for the read, its the journey of how they get there!  

After reading this one, I am not sure I would read this whole series, like I do with RaeAnne Thayne, but this could be a series where if I am drawn to the main characters I would read it then.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
