About the Book:
McKenzie Shaw would do anything for her hometown of Haven Point. It may be small, but it's never let her down…unlike gorgeous, infuriating Ben Kilpatrick. He was her childhood hero until he closed his family's factory, leaving the town's economy in shambles. Now his tech firm is considering opening a local facility. For Haven Point's sake, McKenzie has to grit her teeth and play nice.
What could a town filled with painful memories ever offer Ben? Yet seeing the town through the eyes of McKenzie—its fiery young mayor—he suddenly has his answer. If only he can resolve the animosity crackling between them, Ben may have found the place where he can build ties and find healing…a place where love arrives when it's least expected.
RaeAnne Thayne moves herself into (ok, she invents) a small town and makes herself and her readers right at home. Her Christmas novel, Snow Angel Cove moved us from Hope's Crossing to Haven Point, and this story picks up where that one left off. We find out during the book that Ben and McKenzie share one characteristic that neither would have imagined they did (and I'm not talking about their fondness for dogs). It is a romance novel so the happily ever after is pretty much guaranteed when you open the book. While there is plenty of electricity crackling between the two, there are no bedroom scenes. If a clean sweet modern romance is something you enjoy, I think this one is a winner.
