Typically when I'm in a bookstore (well, Walmart), I only look for certain authors I have read before and avoid any new authors, but since I have started blogging I have been introduced to many other authors, including Denise Hunter.

In this sequel to last year's Barefoot Summer,  Jade McKinley finds herself returning to her hometown of Chapel Springs, Indiana, as she doesn't have anywhere else to go. She is also completely broke. Plus, she is pregnant!

Jade's family is more than surprised to see her return from the big city after only a year. She doesn't want to them to know about her upcoming bundle of joy.

The Chapel Springs mayor, Daniel Dawson, grew up with the McKinley family and has also had a crush on Jade, whom he has always called "squirt," though she had never thought of him as more than a honorary brother. After running into Jade again, those old feelings for her return.

As you can see from the plot, this is a romance novel, so you can expect a happily ever after at the end, but the fun is figuring out how the two main characters will get together. Which isn't an easy thing, as Jade has been hurt in the past and isn't exactly looking for love. Author Denise Hunter does a good job ignoring all the romantic cliches and creates and interesting story that will readers will enjoy.
