Wingate’s latest is sweet, quirky and touching. The novel’s journey is a little frustrating as Heather is kept in the dark about many things, but as events unfold it isn’t as much of an issue. The author’s ability to place the reader in the midst of a small town and its residents makes her books stand out above others in the genre.

Heather Hampton’s future as an architectural designer hinges on her ability to get her mother and uncles to agree on the sale of their family land in Moses Lake, Texas. When her mother seems to be stepping back from the deal, Heather has no choice but to return to her childhood hometown to see what is going on. Heather doesn’t count on opposition to her project from the handsome guy who never knew she existed in high school. Her job is important — but what about her family and their shared past?
