Blurb:

In the small town of Parker Falls, Jessica Parker spends her time serving pie and coming up with ideas to save the failing diner she inherited from her grandfather. A single mom to eight-year-old Wesley, she has enough to keep her busy well into the future. But when her old high school love, Chase Taynor, unexpectedly pops up, Jess finds herself thinking not of the future but of her past with the handsome professional baseball player.

After a few bad pitches leave his dream career in limbo, Chase slides back home to Parker Falls…although the town may not be as safe as he’d expected. As Jess and Chase reconnect, old feelings return in a major-league way.

With the possibility that Chase could return to the baseball diamond at any time, will their reunion be worth the risk to their hearts? Or will it be déjà vu all over again, with Chase choosing the limelight over the woman he loved before the fame?

 

Povzetek iz zadnje strani:

V majhnem mestecu Parker Falls, Jessica Parker preživlja svoj čas s strežbo pite in ustvarjanjem idej o reševanju svoje propadajoče okrepčevalnice, ki jo je podedovala po svojem dedku. Kot mati samohranilka osemletnemu Wesleyu, ima dovolj zapolnjen čas še za daleč vnaprej. Toda ko se njena stara srednješolska ljubezen Chase Taynor prikaže, Jess začne razmišljati ne o prihodnosti pač pa o preteklosti s perivlačnim igralcem bejzbola.

Po nekaj slabih udarcih in s kariero na nitki, se Chase vrne nazaj v Parker Falls…čeprav mesto ni tako varno kot je pričakoval. Ko se Jess in Chase ponovno srečata, stara čustva ponovno pridejo na plan.

Z možnostjo, da se lahko Chase vrne na bejbolska igrišča vsak čas, bo njuna ponovna združitev predstavljala grožnjo njunima srcema? Ali pa bo to ponoven déjà vu, ko bo Chase raje izbral soj luči kot pa žensko, ki jo je ljubil pred slavo?

 

My thoughts:

This book was a little bit different than what I usually read. It was a very sweet small-town romance. I love small town romances even though that one was pretty clean. It was about old high school sweethearts and second chances.

Chase came home to recover after his career took an unexpected turn. He visited his parents and reconciled with Jess, who is now a single mother. He gets along well with her son too.

What I missed was more romance. Even though it was really cheesy – definitely like a Hallmark movie – I was hoping for more connection between MCs. The sparks were definitely there though.

I would watch this as a movie but as for a book, it went a little slow for more in the middle of the book.

3.5 – 4 stars.

Moje misli:

Ta knjiga se je malo razlikovala od knjig, ki jih običajno berem. Gre se o romanci v malem mestu. Take obožujem čeprav se v tej ni kaj pretirano ljubezenskega dogajalo. Gre se o srednješolski ljubezni in drugih možnostih.

Chase je prišel domov potem ko njegova kariera doživi preobrat. Obišče svoje starše, pri tem pa naleti na Jess, mati samohranilko, s katero ponovno vzpostavi odnos. Dobro se razume tudi z njenim sinom

Kar sem pogrešala je predvsem več romantike. Čeprav gre za zelo pocukrano zgodbo – vsekakor značilnost Hallmark filmov – sem upala na več stikov med glavnima junakoma. Vsaj iskrice so bile tam.

To zgodbo bi gledala na filmskem platnu ampak kot knjiga pa se mi je malo vlekla, vsaj na sredini.

3.5 – 4 zvezdice.
