After realizing that she didn't know her husband at all, Savanna decides to finally take control of her life. She packs up her kids and whatever she can fit in a small moving van and heads to Silver Spring and the house her parents left to her and her brother, hoping to start over in place where no one holds her responsible for her husband's actions.
Gavin has found peace in his life and is on his way to finding success in a music career. His wasn't expecting a new neighbor, but lucky for her, he caught her before she hit the collapsed bridge between the two houses. Being the good guy and neighbor he is, Gavin steps up to help Savanna that evening and the next morning, despite her unintended insult to him and his tenure at the Boy's ranch.
Gavin realizes that Savanna and her kids could use a friend, especially after a little investigating gives him all he needs to know about why she chose a fixer-upper for a new home.
With a Brenda Novak book, I know I can always expect a compelling story with strong characters, and this did not disappoint. Savanna had been through so much in the past couple of years, but instead of feeling sorry for herself, she picked herself up and did what she needed to in order to make life better for her kids and herself. With the experience she had with her husband, she had no intention of getting involved with another man, ever (her first conversation with Gavin is pretty direct about this!). Gavin had plans of his own that didn't include Silver Springs, but he didn't feel comfortable leaving before his adopted Mother was settled and happy. Then, he met Savanna and felt happy just helping her start over. Then, the attraction and the trust grew.
There are hurdles they both have to overcome, both separately and together, and decisions to make on their way to finding whether they have a future together. It was fun getting to know Gavin and Savanna, as well as revisiting Silver Springs. I love this new town and series that Novak has created. I can't wait for the next visit!
