St. Martin’s Griffin. Oct. 2022. 336p. ISBN 9781250827098. pap. $16.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Former child star Shelby Springfield has never regretted turning her back on Hollywood after a very public breakup and meltdown years ago. Sure, she gets recognized in Michigan, but working full-time with her father restoring historic homes and living a quiet life is fulfilling. When an opportunity arises to film a pilot for a house flipping show, Shelby can’t pass up the financial boon it would provide her father, and that she would get to work with her former co-star and childhood sweetheart Cameron Riggs. Cameron made a name for himself as a National Geographic documentarian after being on a tween show for years with Shelby. Tired of living a nomadic, solitary life, Cameron is completely caught off guard when he is suddenly told of an opportunity for stateside work with Shelby. After many missed romantic opportunities, will Shelby and Cameron finally have the courage to reveal the feelings that never went away?
VERDICT In her adult debut, Hahn (Never Saw You Coming) successfully brings likable protagonists to life in this character-driven second-chance romance, perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey. Recommended for general purchase where rom-coms are popular.
