5 out of 5 stars
The story Mad About Matt (A Red Maple Falls Novel, #1) by Theresa Paolo is an amazing romance book that I loved reading. It is a story that hooks you in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put down until I had read the final page. It is a sweet love story that warmed my heart. I loved reading about the characters of Shay and Matt. Matt is the sheriff in a small town where his family lives and he grew up in. He is a man that still thinks about the one woman who got away and he can’t ever get out of his thoughts, Shay. Shay has moved back from New York and made her dream of opening a bakery come true. She hasn’t told why she left or what brought her back. Matt avoids that bakery and Shay because of the feelings that he had and still has for her, however, he can’t avoid her anymore when a break in happens at her shop. Both Matt and Shay are still attracted to each other and their feelings/emotions for each other have never died. Will they take the second chance that they are being given? The passion between them is undeniable. Will they make sure that nothing or anyone come between them? Will they get a happy ending? Read this book to find out. As I have grown up in a small town, I love that this story takes place in one. I also loved most of the additional characters that are introduced. That they are those closest to Matt and Shay is wonderful and make the story have that feeling of home and family. There are some scenes between Matt and Shay that make the temperature rise. This is an amazing story with wonderful characters. It is the first book in a series and I now find myself wanting to read the other stories. Highly recommended reading.
This is a second chance book. The story takes place in a small town where Matt is a sheriff in town and has loved Shay for a long time. Shay left town years ago but now is back and has opened a bakery. The mystery of the story is when someone breaks into her shop and makes her question all of her decisions to come back. I enjoyed these two. Their chemistry is strong and I could easily see myself being friends with them and hoping for a HEA. I highly recommend Matt and Shay’s story.
