DEBUT Keira Knudson has a wandering spirit and a secret desire to travel. Teacher by day, increasingly famous social media personality by night, Keira has dreams of leaving her small town, her difficult upbringing, and the one who broke her heart. Robbie Matthews, Keira’s former sweetheart, has problems of his own. Single dad to a young daughter, he suddenly finds himself in a custody battle, all while falling back in love with Keira. Keira is hesitant to renew a relationship with her high school sweetheart, as she’s never moved on from what she viewed as a total betrayal, though she begins to consider taking the opportunity to get to know each other again as adults.
VERDICT This is a rather predictable yet enjoyable story about forgiveness, following your dreams, and everything not being as simple as you first imagined.
