Home is the place to heal . . . right?

At least, that’s what Dillon Michaels is hoping as she leaves her disappointing career and nonstarter love life behind to help her grieving and aging grandfather on his small Oregon farm. The only problem? Her eccentric mother beat her there and has taken over Dillon’s old room. After a few nights of sleeping on a sagging sofa, Dillon is ready to give up, until she receives an unlikely gift–her grandfather’s run-down vintage camp trailer, which she quickly resolves to restore with the help of Jordan Atwood, the handsome owner of the local hardware store.

But just when things are finally beginning to run smoothly, Dillon’s noncommittal ex-boyfriend shows up with roses . . . and a ring.

My thoughts:

This is a fun, light read and I love the camper theme. I appreciated that Melody did her research when it comes to campers. My family does a lot of camping so I know quite a bit about campers. I could so relate to Dillon’s nervousness about backing up. She is way braver then me, I have never tried but am always impressed by my husband’s ability to do so.

The ending is so sweet, I couldn’t have pictured a better why to wrap up the story.

If you are looking for a fun summer read with a camping theme I think you will enjoy this one.
