The first time Cari and rick met, Rick wasn't aware they had gone to high school together, but Carri sure did! In fact, she'd had a crush on him. But she had moved away after her father married on the rebound and he pushed her away to welcome his new wife and step-children. Upon her father's death, he left her her childhood home, and Cari wanted to restore the home to it's original form. But that may be easier said then done! First of all, her step-mother did not want Cari to keep the house. Second, Cari needed to secure a loan, and due to her ex-boyfriend's robbing her blind her credit history isn't too good; and last but not least, somebody was out to keep Cari from ever opening her doors - and Cari had a pretty darn good idea of who it was!
This story was romantic, sweet, funny, and interesting. I read the book in one day. It left me feeling good all over by the end. I liked how sweet Rick treated Cari. He was so protective of her and made sure he took care of her - rather she liked it or not!!!
