Abby Engel has a great life. She's the owner of Sunshine Corner, the daycare she runs with her girlfriends; she has the most adoring grandmother (aka the Baby Whisperer); and she lives in a perfect hidden gem of a town. All that's missing is the thing she wants the most: a family. But after a stint of online dating and a string of bad blind dates, she's ready to give up. And then her ex-boyfriend (aka the love of her life) walks back into town...
Carter Hayes has no intention of staying in Heart's Hope Bay. He's there to help his sister out for a few weeks, and then he's back on a plane to Las Vegas. But small-town living has its appeal, and it’s not long before Carter's reminded of just how much he loves his hometown...and the one woman he’s never been able to forget. But after breaking her heart all those years ago, can Carter convince Abby that he’s her happy-ever-after?

I loved this small town second chance romance. The sweet attraction between Carter and Abby was magical. Babies and the preoccupation with them was a but over the top and grandma led the charge on that but it was still nice to get those family happily ever after feels from this book. There is only minor conflict in this book and very little angst which made it a very easy read. You like both Carter and Abby and their love of family is endearing. You root for them to overcome their conflict and achieve their happily ever after from the beginning. They have wonderful chemistry. There is some heat in this book but not a lot. Overall it was a lovely weekend afternoon read that made me feel really good. Thanks Netgalley and Grand Central Pub for my gifted copy.
