Escape with a feel-good romance that will warm your heart this summer!
Emily Hendrickson is tired of being the wedding guest and never the bride. Working at her local paper as a wedding columnist, she can’t wait to write her own happy-ever-after.
When she bumps into her childhood sweetheart Calvin Albright, her world is knocked off balance. Calvin has returned to the quiet town of Hebblestone desperate for a fresh start. After his wife tragically died two years ago, he wants nothing more than to find a new home and settle down with his son, Isaac.
Isaac can see how lonely his dad is – he’s determined to help him find love again and complete their family…
Uploading a video to his blog in search of a new girlfriend for his dad, he convinces Emily to use the local paper to make the video viral and sift through the potential candidates.
But as the letters to Calvin begin to flood in, could the promise of love be closer to home than they think?
My thoughts: this is a sweet story about love and friendship. Isaac wants to find his dad someone to love after his mother’s death, and now they’re back in Calvin’s home town, where his childhood best friend Emily lives.
After Isaac convinces Emily to run the story about his hunt for a girlfriend for his dad, and some wires get crossed and then untangled, love prevails. And Emily doesn’t have to cover any more weddings for the local paper either, which sounds like a depressing job. The characters are all rather nice people and deserve love and happiness. A pleasure to read.
