My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about second chances. Four years ago, Jess and Danny got a divorce after their struggles to have a baby led to disaster. Returning to where it all happened for a new job, she tries to concentrate on the future instead of the past. But life makes things difficult when she discovers that he has returned. She is even more surprised to bump into him and all the feelings rear their heads. Can they resolve the issues of the past for a chance at a happy future together?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Jess struggling with her feelings but still standing up for herself or Danny trying his best Great cast of supporting characters like the fun sister Melissa or Mom supportive and kind.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the sense of nature with Oak River and its tall trees and green spaces as fresh and tranquillity. Or the flowers in the memories with their fresh scents and bold and beautiful colours so vivid its as if you’re actually there.
The flashbacks into the past worked well to display what happened and didn’t disrupt from te narrative of the present with the italics used to differentiate the memories from the present day. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.
