Both Elliott Youngblood and Catherine Calhoun feel like outcasts and find an easy friendship with each other because of that. But when Catherine needs him most, Elliott is forced to leave town. When he finally returns, he and Catherine are different people. Catherine hasn’t forgiven Elliott for abandoning her, but he’s determined to win back her friendship and her heart.
I don’t know whether to call this book a romance or mystery, but the mystery seemed the more prevalent story line. As far as the romance goes, there is definite chemistry between Elliott and Catherine. I liked them together and watching them grow together as a couple. However, the mystery element is what kept me turning the pages. I read with my brow furrowed trying to figure out what was happening at Catherine’s home, the Juniper. The ending = WOW! I didn’t have a clue THAT was coming! Both the romance and mystery ends are tied up nicely and I closed this book a happy reader.
My first book by Jamie McGuire has left me eager for more. After reading All the Little Lights, I’m going to get to those already on my TBR sooner rather than later.
I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley.
