USA Today bestselling author Heather B. Moore welcomes you to Pine Valley! When Alicia moves back to Pine Valley to help her mom through a serious addiction, the last person she wants to see is her teenage crush, Jeff Finch, who destroyed their friendship in one single disastrous night. Alicia is determined to not let anything about Jeff affect her, especially since she hasn't seen him in ten years. All she knows is that he's living a successful and charmed life, and she is more than happy to keep anything between them in the past. But when he shows up with a date at the restaurant where she works, Alicia realizes she's still not over her feelings, and Jeff is definitely looking at her in a way he never has before.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

This was a sweet story about second chances.
Alicia was an amazing daughter, giving up her life and career dreams to help her mother who had sunken into depression and hoarding. Just the idea of living in that house with her mom gives me the shudders!
Jeff was the clueless ex-best friend who had broken Alicia’s heart and then disappeared from her life. Realizing the way he had lost out on an amazing friend and regretting it terribly, he was thrilled to have her return home and set out out to win her heart back. I loved the way he stood with Alicia through some tough situations.
I think my favorite character, though, was Beth, Jeff’s mom. She was kindness itself in the way she interacted with Lila and helped her.
