She’s not home for keeps

Unless he proves first love is forever

Bluestone River is a minefield of memories for Mike Abbot—all involving Ruby Driscoll. Twenty years after scandal divided them, they’re both back in their hometown. Ruby’s visit is strictly temporary. But as she uses her trauma expertise to help his vulnerable son, Mike faces what his heart has always known. Ruby’s still his one and only. This time, can he convince her to stay?



Even though I didn't know there was a first book I still really enjoyed this book about Parker Davis and Emma O' Connell.

In my opinion I came to see that they were going to be two special people that earned a place in my heart. I certainly enjoyed getting to know them.
I loved the community's unusual name Bluestone River. I found myself looking it up to see if it was real.
I think that when the love bug hits certain people there's no stopping it especially if God has a say in it. Destiny is meant to be!
I feel that I have read this author before. Her work is very familiar to me. I like how she can make her characters real and believable complete with 2nd chances at love.
Parker's Bird Sanctuary fascinated me. I loved that he really cared about saving the birds. It was his passion and I certainly can understand that. I thought it brought out the best in him.
Just like my passion is reading and music.
The only thing I didn't like at 1st was his unjust attitude towards Emma. Yes we all have baggage but please Emma most certainly did not deserve that!
But later on we learn why Parker has a nasty attitude. I wouldn't want to experience something like that!
I was glad to see that as the story went on they actually learned how to get along with each other.
Emma has enough troubles of her own. I'm like Emma when it comes to injuries and surgeries. I went through something like Emma did so that is why I felt more connected to her.
I love Emma. She's a kind hearted and generous soul. I believe however she's a rare person to care about her town and it's people. Not many people in real life do. We need more like her.
The person I felt for was Parker's daughter. I can't blame her for feeling the way she does.
Poor girl! I enjoyed getting to know her too.
I can't stress how much I loved this book!
There really wasn't much I didn't like except Parker's attitude at first.
This is a delightful book that will be sure to put you in the Christmas cheer!
I highly recommend this book
