Blurb (From Goodreads):
One mistake.

And everything changes.

For Monroe Blackwell, one small mistake has torn her family apart –leaving her empty and broken. There’s a hole in her heart that nothing can fill. That no one can fill. And a summer in Louisiana with her Grandma isn’t going to change that…

Nathan Everets knows heartache first-hand when a car accident leaves his best friend in a coma. And it’s his fault. He should be the one lying in the hospital. The one who will never play guitar again. He doesn’t deserve forgiveness, and a court-appointed job at the Blackwell B&B isn’t going to change that…

Captivating and hopeful, this achingly poignant novel brings together two lost souls struggling with grief and guilt – looking for acceptance, so they can find forgiveness.

Monroe and Nathan are both hiding secrets, deadly secrets. Can they help each other to work their way through their problems over the summer? And maybe find love on the way?


This was an okay story, but it took a while to get good.

I liked Monroe and Nathan, although it took me a while. I didn’t really like either of them to start with, but when they started baring their souls I finally started to like them.

The storyline was okay, but again, it took a while to get going. I found the first half of the book pretty boring, and even the mystery over who Malcom was and what happened to him couldn’t keep me interested. When Monroe confessed all though, I finally understood what she was going through, and began to like her.
The romance also took a while to find its feet, but once we got there I did like it.

The ending was good, and I was glad that we got a happy ending. It was just a shame that this book took so long to get interesting!
Overall; okay story, but took a long while to get interesting,
7 out of 10
