Thank goodness to beauty and lace for sending me this book. Within minutes of picking up the book i was sent to into the world Karlt Lane created, barely able to put it down I finished the entire book at work. I was upset to have it end, wanting more adventures with Hayley and her army of pets she acquired. I was drawn along on the journey Karly wrote, twisting between the origins of Lochway, and the modern timeline. Despite being a fictional town I can understand the beauty of it, having lived near some of the places mentioned it. It warms my heart how much Hayley appreciates the history of the area, and the families in the area. History is a passion of mine and I felt even more connected to her. The relationship that builds between Hayley and Luke really gets me all giggly and excited. I love how it shows not all couples are completely sexy and have great moves. That some of us are clumsy and laugh and create bleeding noses, but it doesn't take away from the moment and the romance in it. I laughed so much during this book, Karly did an amazing job of describing situations, and had me picturing them as if I was there. I love that her writing isn't all serious all the time, or completely romantic. There's a wonderful balance between romance, mystery and humour.
