An unexpected reunion
Sparks familiar feelings!

Beth Flanagan became a mother when she took in her best friend’s daughter. Spending the summer at the Montana camp where she and her friend had made such wonderful memories was meant to create a much-needed bond. But Beth didn’t anticipate Zach Carter, the boy who’d stolen her heart, to be in charge. Nor did she anticipate how quickly their feelings would reignite–though Beth vows to not fall for him again!

My Review
The premise of this story is a little heartbreaking- Ellie recently lost her mother, and Beth her best friend. Ellie also has some physical special needs, which is a big focus of the book. The camp where Beth, Jilly, and Zach spent the summer together is now a therapy camp for kids with special needs, and it was interesting to learn about the details of Ellie's specific illness and how the camp helped her. It is very apparent that the author is knowledgeable on the subject. Beth and Zach's reluctance to reconnect is influenced by the relationship trauma they have suffered with others, and it really affects their current relationship. It's a rocky road for them to reignite their friendship and romance, and I struggled to connect with their emotions, feeling removed or kept at the surface. The relationship between Ellie and Beth is just as much the focus of the book as Beth navigates parenting a grieving young teen. I enjoyed the setting of Montana and the secondary characters that made it such a homey, special place.
