Amber DeWitt knows she won’t be able to avoid Mac entirely when her job brings her back to Heartbreak, Tennessee, her home town.
But she is determined to try.
Their love affair ended fourteen years ago, when she was just eighteen. She begged Mac to run away with her after she learned a terrible secret about their two families. When Mac refused, Amber vowed to disappear forever.
But now, Amber has been forced to return to help her employer plan a theme park to be set in Heartbreak. She intends to get the trip over with as quickly as possible and return to her life in Nashville, a life that includes a relationship with aspiring singer Dean Hamilton.
Unfortunately, negotiating the theme park isn’t as easy as Amber had hoped. The park’s number one opponent is Heartbreak’s mayor—none other than Mac. And when he’s not shooting down her proposal, he’s proposing the kind of collaboration that ignites long-buried passions.
I love second chance romance stories and this one was a really good example. Ruby Laska drew me in and made me want to know what scared Amber out of town without a backward glance for the love of her life. The fact that Mac hadn’t ever moved on was amazing too. The fact that their love was so strong it held them with each other even though they were apart for 14 years. The love these two shared overcame time and all the difficulties life threw at them.
If Heartbreak, Tennessee is how Ms. Laska writes, I will definitely read more of her work. She developed characters thoroughly and formatted the story so that you couldn’t stop reading and didn’t want too. This was a great read!
