Today's challenge is:
Read a book you keep meaning to read from the Clearing Off the Bookshelves list
Cybil Roe gave her heart away thirteen years ago only to have it wind up shattered. With painstaking determination, she has rebuilt her life into something to be proud of today. Yet all her future plans are upended when the only man she has ever loved returns to Echo Springs. Nor does it help that he seems bound and determined to draw her back into his life. Cybil vows to stay away from him, no matter what seeing him all the time does to her resolve.

Miles Keaton wiped the dust of his hometown off his shoes years ago, never expecting that life would lead him back to the place where he had begun. Coming home to Echo Springs, to Cybil, to start a new law practice and a new life is a risk he never thought he’d take. She hates him – with good reason. Years ago, he walked away when she needed him the most. But now is he back, and intends to argue the case of his life, one more important than any he has debated in a courtroom because she is the one woman he cannot live without.

Can Miles convince Cybil to take a second chance on him, or will a secret she has kept all these years destroy any future they might have?
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and couldn't wait for the second. The author has been very lucky with her cover choices. They are always so cute. Makes you want to read the stories within. At least that's how I got started on her. 

I'm not always a fan of second chance romance because I feel like, been there done that, but sometimes they work. I think what helps this one is that they've both grown so much since they were together. The author does a great job of not rushing them back into a relationship. 

It might have taken them a bit to get over their past but that's what I liked about the story. People grow and change and sometimes it takes a while to learn new things about someone. 

Cybil has great friends and family that help her figure out how she feels and will stand behind her whatever she choices. I liked their friendships. 

I really also liked Miles too. He had his reasons for doing what he did and how he ended things with Cybil. I might now have totally agreed with them but understood his feels. I did like how even though he went on with his life he could never stop caring about her or forget her. She was his one and only. 

This is a sweet romance with so many likable characters. I think you'll really enjoy this fun town. I know I'm looking forward to more books in this series. 

Come back on July 1st "Trivia Thursday"
