Charming, poignant, and sexy, When You Got a Good Thing pulled me in with its sweet charm and deft storytelling, and didn't let go until the very last page. It has everything I love in a small-town romance! ~USA Today Best-Selling Author Tawna Fenske

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Loved this story!
Kennedy is one of four foster children adopted by Joan. She would be considered the black sheep of the family; living a somewhat nomadic life but managing to sustain herself. It was a lifestyle her sisters didn't understand, but I feel that she chose her life path because of the reasons she had to stay away. She was driven to constantly find a place to fit in since she couldn't return home.
I LOVED this story! While I was upset at the way her sisters treated her so poorly when she returned and not having confidence that she would pull through for Ari and for the inn, it was heart-warming to see her sisters' views of her change. Kennedy finally felt accepted by her family.
I wasn't expecting Kennedy and Xander to get back together so quickly. But, it surely made sense knowing that they both never stopped loving the other. It makes one believe in second chances.
I can't wait for the next book in the series!
Great romance with intrigue
I was swept away into this story of an amazing young woman who sets aside her adventurous life abroad to return home when her adoptive mother dies, and her sisters need her help. An intriguing story unfolds as her mysterious departure ten years before complicates her homecoming for the loved ones she left behind. The characters are beautifully developed with vibrant & distinct personalities, pulling the reader into their midst. Her first & only love has never gotten over her & she’s just as passionately in love with him, but she has a lot of explaining to do before they can embrace a life together. I really enjoyed spending time in Eden Ridge, and with the family from the Misfit Inn, and will definitely look for more stories in this series!
