From the USA TODAY bestselling author of On the Corner of Love and Hate comes a romantic comedy about a woman who grudgingly returns home to small-town Pennsylvania, only to find herself falling in love—not only with the town, but with two of its citizens.
Charlotte Bishop is out of options in New York City. Fired, broke, and blacklisted by her former boss, she’s forced to return to her hometown of Hope Lake, PA to lick her wounds. Although she’s expecting to find a miserable place with nothing to do, she is pleasantly surprised to discover it is bustling and thriving.
She’s only supposed to be in Hope Lake temporarily until she can earn enough money to move back to New York. She’s not supposed to reconnect with her childhood friends or her beloved grandmother. She’s not supposed to find her dream job running the local florist shop. And she’s definitely not supposed to fall for not one but two of Hope Lake’s golden boys: one the beloved high school English teacher, the other the charming town doctor.
With a heart torn between two men and two cities, what’s a girl to do?
Charlotte returns to her hometown of Hope Lake after being gone for over 20 years. When Charlotte was a young girl, she left town with her mother. Unfortunately, Charlotte’s mother was always negative about Hope Lake, and Charlotte has largely lost memory of her childhood in the small town.
Charlotte doesn’t expect much of Hope Lake when she returns to the town. She’s surprised to find the community has prospered, and has plenty to keep her busy. Her stay in Hope Lake is supposed to be temporary, but with family, old friends (Emma, Cooper, Henry, and Nick), a job offer, and the handsome single men in town, it’s hard to leave. Charlotte’s main problem is she doesn’t remember much about the town or her old friends. As everyone welcomes her back into their lives, she slowly starts to remember.
This is the second book in the Hopeless Romantics series by Nina Bocci, but it can be read as a standalone. The first book, On the Corner of Love and Hate features the same group of friends (Emma, Cooper, Henry, and Nick).
A lighthearted romance. I enjoy the setting of this series more than the characters, though the characters are growing on me. Charming and sweet.
I received a free digital copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
