In Firefly Valley...Review

About the book:
She's lost her dream job--but has she found the man of her dreams?

Devastated by a downsizing, Marisa St. George has no choice but to return to the small Texas town where she grew up. Though it means a giant step backward, she accepts a position as business manager at the struggling Rainbow's End resort. The only silver lining: Blake Kendall, a new guest who might make her believe in love at first sight. But will Marisa's dreams of happily-ever-after be turned upside down when she discovers Blake's real identity?

This warm and witty story of dreams deferred and mistaken identity will have you believing in second chances.

After losing her job, Marisa returns to her hometown. The good things about it? Being close to her mother and best friend. She accepts a job as business manager for Rainbow's End resort, owned by Greg Vange who is engaged to her best friend Kate. Marisa harbors a great deal of anger and resentment towards the father who abandoned her. She meets Greg's best friend, Blake Kendall and finally lets herself fall for someone.

This is a story of forgiveness, but before Marisa can get there, she has some ups and downs. While I loved the story, I found myself frustrated with Marisa and some of her decisions. I really had a hard time with the fact that because Blake wrote best sellers about a detective who smoked and drank, he was immoral and she judged him harshly on that. At times I wanted to shake some sense into her, but the story is a delightful read. I enjoyed revisiting Rainbow's End.

Second in the Texas Crossroads series, the story could stand alone but, like most series', it's all the richer for being read in order.

Thanks to Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book. You can learn more about Amanda Cabot here. You can purchase your own copy here.
