Heather Long creates a scenario that slowly but securely wraps around your heart and draws you into the life and love of two spectacular characters. I was pulled in to this story almost immediately and felt a genuine connection with both Mac and Justin as soon as I met them. which was unusual because I had nothing in common with either of them but did immediately feel invested in what happened with them. MacKenzie is a survivor and the fact that she's still vulnerable adds a realness to her personality. Justin comes across as a cross between the guy next door and just a little too good to be true but I couldn't help suspending my cynicism in the hopes that he really was a dream-worthy as he appeared. This is the first book I've read by this author and I know it will not be the last. The descriptions and pace were perfect for my enjoyment and I honestly found myself getting lost between the pages. I completely loved meeting the residents of Penny Hollow and I hope to make more than one return visit. Justin's siblings really do deserve their own stories and I can't wait to catch up with Jock as that girl is quite the character.
