Review: Whenever You Come Around: A Kings Meadow Romance by Robin Lee Hatcher

_240_360_Book.1585.coverHey all of my mom readers! Are you looking for a light summer read.  Something to enjoy by the pool?  A good clean book to read?  I might have an idea for you.  The title is Whenever You Come Around: A Kings Meadow Romance by Robin Lee Hatcher.

This book is about a famous author Charity Anderson who reluctantly returns to her home town, Kings Meadow in order to get some peace while working on her next novel.  Her parents are out of town so Charity settles in to her childhood home all on her own.  Kings Meadow is a small charming town but it is the sort of place where everyone knows everyone.  Word quickly spreads and soon the town is buzzing as their resident celebrity has returned.

After a silly mishap in the grocery parking lot Charity finds herself having to care for her old high school crush  and new neighbor Buck Malone.  Buck and Charity find themselves growing every closer.  As they do Charity finds she must confront some old demons from her past.  Her insecurities cause her to keep Buck at arms length.  The climax of the novel ascends on the reader as we discover whether Buck’s feelings can withstand Charity’s secrets and whether he can let him into her heart.

What I Thought

This is a sweet little book.  An easy read for the pool side or the beach.  Once I started reading I was compelled enough by the writing that I didn’t want to stop reading.  I felt for the characters and I was interested in how their lives would turn out.  The struggles in this book are pretty real.  I could relate to them. I have to say though the plot and outcome is pretty darn predictable.

It was a comfortable romance.  Nothing earth shattering.  The story does end rather abruptly.  I thought for sure we’d final meet the villain that caused Charity so much pain.  I imagined a big showdown between him and Buck.  But that didn’t happen.  An epilogue may have been nice.  I was invested enough in the characters to want to know what happened next.  But I was left to my own imagination.

Over all if you want something neat, sweet, gently, clean, light than this book could really fit the bill.
