For Samantha Henry, it took a ten-year absence to appreciate the close-knit New England town with an appeal all its own....
After a perfect storm of events leaves Sam high, dry, and jobless, she has to head home to Harvest Cove to regroup. Growing up, she was the town misfit, and a brief high school romance that resulted in heartbreak made her realize she was never going to fit in. But now with the support of her mother and an unexpected circle of allies, Sam starts to wonder if she’s misjudged the town all these years.
Life’s been good to Jake Smith. He transitioned from popular jock to town veterinarian without any trouble. But Sam’s homecoming makes him question his choices. The sharp-tongued beauty was never a good fit for the small community, but he’s never forgotten her—or how good they were together. While she makes it clear she’s not about to repeat the past, Jake’s determined to convince her to give him—and Harvest Cove—a second chance.
Castle opens a contemporary romance series with this breezy, fun, slightly steamy novel. Artist Samantha Henry makes an ignominious return home to Harvest Cove, Mass., after failing to make it in the Big Apple. It's been 10 years since she last laid eyes or hands on Jake Smith, but she crosses paths with him in her mother's driveway. He was dreamy and handsome in high school, and has since grown up into a real hunk. They once had a secret, close friendship before Jake embarrassed her in front of a snickering audience, a memory that still stings Sam. Fate throws them together over a kitten named Loki; Sam hopes history won't repeat itself, but Jake pushes for another chance. If this entry with its serviceable mix of villainous snobs and good people is any indication, Castle's Harvest Cove promises to be worth repeated visits.
