A Canyon Springs Courtship


A Love Reunited

Councilman Jake Talford is determined to protect his small Arizona town. Even if that means keeping a close eye on former sweetheart Macy Colston. Macy has come to Canyon Springs to get the scoop for her popular blog Hometowns with Heart. The rest of the town council hopes it will bring in the tourists. But Jake's worried she'll turn local gossip into public scandal. He and Macy once shared dreams of a future together. Now it's up to Jake to make her see what's most important in life—love, faith and truth.

My Review:

I love the unique premise at the base of this story. A stroke of genius on the author's part I think -- having the heroine be the author of a high-traffic blog. It really brings a fresh perspective to the plot.

I also love the fact that Jake and Macy have a history...one that ended badly. Talk about upping the angst factor. Tension just crackled off the page every time they shared a scene. And poor Jake kept sticking his foot in his mouth which only served to raise Macy's defensive hackles. Sometimes that made me laugh out loud and sometimes I just wanted to clunk their heads together and admonish them to play nice. :-)

Kaye does a magnificent job of weaving a taut tale about forgiveness, love and second chances. This is the kind of read you'll want to power through and whoosh out a sigh of pure satisfaction when you reach the end.
