Publisher: Entangled Lovestruck, Entangled Publishing

Rating 4/5

This story concerns someone trying to escape the small town existence and chasing her dreams in Manhattan only to discover that she’s been chasing the wrong dream!

Imagine being brought up in the hometown your ancestors not only founded but had named after them…. Now imagine not liking everyone minding your business but the township being so small that everyone knows everything almost before you’ve done anything. That’s what it seemed like to Tessa Cutter who grew up in Cutter’s Creek before, about a year ago, leaving the small town behind her as she chased her dream of being an artist all the way to Manhattan. She’s returning home for a family camping trip and, in an effort to keep them off her back, she pretends to have a financial whizz boyfriend….

Logan Ridley, however, has the opposite experience – he grew up in the city and started his own personal training studio in Manhattan but competition was too fierce so he’s moved to Cutter’s Creek to escape the city and he’s loving it! He’s also seriously attracted to Tessa – and her family have them sharing a cabin for the holiday.  Life’s about to get even more interesting as their attraction flares but their future plans, her family and life will all just keep getting in the way!

Well, they say opposites attract and that’s certainly applies in this couple’s case! From car accident, family matchmakers and dreams awaiting achievement, this is an easy read, relaxing, fairly straight forward romance, just right to escape into when you don’t want anything too complicated or twisted. A delightful small town romance to leave you in a good mood after reading it. I particularly like the town’s role in the end (but I’m not telling you what it is, you’ll need to read it yourself to find out!)

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
