About The Book

Can you ever really forget your first love?
It’s been eight long years since May Anderson’s high school sweetheart Tom Riley drove down Main Street in his truck, leaving Hillsboro—and May—in his rearview mirror. Now he’s back and, try as they might, the pair can’t avoid each other.
As Hillsboro prepares to host the prestigious North West Food and Wine Festival, Tom and May are reluctantly called in to plan the big event. Tom needs May’s help to repair his bad-boy reputation and, with the whole town counting on them, May and Tom need to learn to trust each other again.
May is determined to protect her heart, but a lot has changed since high school. She can’t help but notice how the skinny boy she used to know is now a man who perfectly fills out his button-down, and Tom can’t seem to tear his gaze away from May’s sweet smile. It’s clear old feelings are surfacing again, but there is a secret keeping them apart and, until they find the courage to face it, their second chance summer will be only that…


My Thoughts

Who says that love doesn’t have a second chance? Tom and Maya were sweetheart lovers and had all their future planned, but last minute Maya decided to stay at home and leave Tom. Now he is back in town and the sparks between them are more charged than ever, will they let their feelings go wild? Or play it safe and be only friends?
This is a sweet story about love, second chances and how fear sometimes stop us to do what we desire, fair? No, but that’s the problem if we let fear control our emotions and thoughts, we will never achieve our dreams or hopes and that’s what this book tries to show us. Maya and Tom were great together but if they want to be together again they will have to beat their fears. Do you think they will do it? Of course you’ll have to read the book to know the truth!
There was something that I didn’t like much about the book, how Maya let everyone believe that Tom left her and when he returns all the village is against him. I could understand that in a moment of pain you can lie, but after so many years she should have told the truth and not make him suffer for something that he didn’t do!
This is the second book of the series Full Bloom Farm but you can read it as standalone.
This is a quick and light read, based in a small village full of life and charming neighbours (some noisy too, but that’s the spice of the story!). If you don’t know where to travel this weekend I would recommend you to take a breath and become part of Hillsboro. Ready?
