Both Kate Walker and Colton Greene are at a crossroads in their lives. Kate is dissatisfied with her career as a writer for romantic screenplays since her own love life is in shambles. And Colton’s most recent football injury is a career ender. So when both decide to journey to small town Iowa to help out family and friends, they find an unlikely friendship in their similarities. An unexpected project then suddenly provides a new opportunity for both of them, but this could mean putting a new dream on hold for Kate and facing past demons for Colton. Both must learn to take a leap of faith and trust God to handle the details as they pursue a new direction in their lives, one that they never even dreamed of considering.
Small town Maple Valley in the fall is the perfect setting for a modern contemporary romance. Kate and Colton are both lovable characters and each possess a depth in personality that makes the story interesting and enjoyable. Melissa Tagg does a wonderful job writing with creative and descriptive sentences and realistic and charming dialogue that keeps the plot moving along at a comfortable pace. The storyline was perhaps a bit predictable, but all good romance stories are, and the novel was still overall very enjoyable to read. A recommended contemporary fiction book with sweet moments and fun scenes!
