Kensington. Jan. 2023. 320p. ISBN 9781496737298. pap. $16.95. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Freshly laid off from her job in Los Angeles, 28-year-old Georgie is burned-out and unsure of the future, so she leaves her life behind, driving across the country to her hometown. Her plans are simple: take a summer break and spend quality time with her lifelong best friend. When they happen upon a notebook in an old box, outlining her high school bucket list, Georgie decides to try to live out her younger self’s goals, silly or not. She soon meets Levi, a handsome stranger with a questionable past, and through a house-sitting mix-up, finds they’ll be living under the same roof. Levi helps her with her bucket list, leading to a hot and deeply emotional affair that’s complicated by small-town prejudices and entrenched family trauma. As Georgie contemplates if their love is enough to keep her in town, Levi has to heal from his past pain in order to accept the possibility of a happily ever after with Georgie.
VERDICT Told from alternating viewpoints, this tender and sexy contemporary romance from Clayborn (Love at First) also features strong friendships and will appeal to fans of Emily Henry.
