Saving Laurel Springs by Lin Stepp

25967613This was a second chance romance the follows childhood sweethearts Rhea Dean and Carter Layman as they get a second chance at love.

The story was alright, but it felt too done before. Small town, boy moves away, girl stays behind. Boy marries, has family, wife dies, he returns to the small town and reconnect with his first and "true" love.

The reason I couldn't give this story a much better score is that they always make the girl out to be this sad thing that puts her life on like permanent hold. She's supposed to be pretty, smart, hard working but she's hung up on this love that has moved on and she stays frozen.

The story did have some moments that made me think it was okay; I just couldn't 100% like Carter and that is why the story suffered with me.

Rating 3.5 out of 5
