I received this book in exchange for my honest review:
From the back of the book:
Is it ever too late to give love a second chance?
James Morgan never really believed in love. That is, until he laid eyes on Deborah Walker at the local soda fountain. He surprises himself by inviting her out for an impromptu night on the town, and she shocks him even more by agreeing. As the night progresses, the two share their past histories and secret dreams, and James realizes that she is the perfect woman for him. The only problem is that he ships off to Korea the next morning. Fulfilling his duty is non-negotiable to James, even if fighting for his country will ultimately break both of their hearts.
Deborah promises to wait for him, but two years is a long time to put her life on hold, especially for a man she only knew for one day. When Rip Rockwell returns from the war and James does not, Rip proposes marriage to Deborah. She agrees and they build a beautiful life together until his death fifty years later. Through it all, though, she can never quite forget her first love. She retires to Abilene, expecting to live out the rest of her days in peace. So imagine her surprise when James Morgan moves in next door…
My thoughts on the book:
This story was SO SO SO CUTE! I wish that it didn't end where it ended. I wanted to know more about the couple. I loved every time James asked if he may kiss her. I loved reading about their interaction. They kept my attention so that is a huge compliment to the writer because I have a hard time reading. I found myself laughing, smiling and tearing up a bit. This is definitely a great read.
Melissa Storm creates memorable characters, great story lines and just has such adorable covers. I can tell that Melissa is a great writer and I would be so happy to read more from her and to give her a 5 star rating. Keep it up Melissa! I can tell your store will touch lives of those around you as well as people across the world.
Until next time,
