Here to Stay
What happens when the prodigal, who comes home and is ready to settle down, and the girl, who has followed the rules and is ready to get out of town, fall in love? Autumn Kingsley has been trying to keep her family’s inn afloat since her mother had gifted it to her on her birthday years ago. Blake Hunziker has arrived back in town after being gone for years and is ready to be part of the community he ran away from. His parents welcome him home and would like him to help his father with their hotel. With past circumstances and hurts crushing them both, Autumn and Blake strike up a partnership where he will help her fix up her inn for a very important investor and she will help him organize the Christmas festival for their dying little tourist town. As they begin to work together and ultimately rely upon each other, a “forbidden” romance develops between them. Their families have been feuding for years with their competing businesses and with other history between them, neither think they have a chance with each other. Not only that, but Autumn has a chance of a lifetime- to move to Paris and finally get to pursue her dreams. Are Autumn and Blake’s dreams what they really want, or is there something bigger and better for them both? I really enjoyed this first read of mine by Melissa Tagg. I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
