I actually really enjoyed this one. It might be because I am not reading the series in order and read about Clay and Lily in Kelly's story. So to me, they were regulars.

I always feel the book cover doesn't do the book justice since it always focuses on one couple, but really it seems like all of Carr's books focuses on several couples in town. So in one book you are really getting two to three stories plus revisiting old characters. Not only are you getting a typical romance from Clay and Lily but you are also getting a side story on Jack and several introductions to future characters.

Clay was really sexy in a laid back way. But I was really impressed with how Carr protray Lily. She was stuck in the past but it wasn't excessive although it seemed like is should be. Not once did I want to yell at her to get over it. I have no idea how Carr did that. My only problem was that whenever Clay or Lily talked to other family members, their speech turned very formal like a bad cowboys and indian movie. That was a bit annoying.

Jack's story was very interesting as well. An older lady passed away and left everything she owned to the town, naming Jack as the executor. It was up to Jack to figure out where that money should go. It was obvious where he will eventually spend it but it was good to have a nonlove story to add to the book. It seemed like an added bonus of a short story.

Great read and I really didn't want to put it down.
