Welcome back to Heritage, Michigan–the small town with a big heart
When she hears that the town of Heritage is looking for a new librarian, Libby Kingsley jumps at the opportunity. Little did she know the library is barely more than a basement room stuffed with dusty, outdated books. What the community really needs is a new building. But the only funds available are those being channeled into the new town square, and the landscape architect in charge of the project wants nothing to do with her plans.
All Austin Williams wants to do is get the town square project finished, and he hopes it is enough to save the family business. Then he can extricate himself from the town that reveres the brother who cost him so much. But the local media and the town’s new librarian seem to be conspiring against him at every turn. Will the determined bookworm find her way into his blueprints–and possibly even his heart?
It was nice to visit the town of Heritage, Michigan again. Although, being a Michigander myself, I didn’t think the assumption that Michigan would be warm in August and not hot was correct. August is when things usually “heat” up. But the authors note that you can never bet on Michigan weather was very true.
On to the story. There are a lot of characters to keep straight and I think if you haven’t read the previous book it might be even more confusing. I even had trouble remembering who the previous characters were and I read the other book.
With that being said it was an interesting story. I love the fact that the characters want to restore Heritage and the creativity they are putting into that.
Libby was a relatable character and Austin could be frustrating and rude, but that is probably what drew me into the story the most…and their dogs.
Overall, a nice read and a sweet romance.
