READ AND REVIEW
HOPE FALLS: WILDEST DREAMS BY SAMANTHA CHASE (KINDLE WORLDS)
Release Date: January 26, 2016
She’s looking for a future with roots from her past…
For Alesha Reed, coming back to Hope Falls is bittersweet. Twenty years ago it was her home, but that was when her family was still together. Now she’s returning to take over her father’s beloved book store – Read Between the Lines – while he deals with a health crisis. For years Alesha longed for the town, the people, the sense of belonging she once felt and she’s ready for her fresh start amidst the familiar.
He’s seeing an important part of his past as a key to his future…
Reece Brooks has called Hope Falls home for most of his life, but when the opportunity arose to give him a little breathing room from the close-knit community, he took it. It’s normally business-as-usual when he comes home for a visit, so imagine his surprise when this visit home brings him face to face with the first girl to ever break his heart. Granted, they were only seven years old at the time, but still. Fate has brought the girl he’s never forgotten back into his life. Unfortunately, Reece is only in Hope Falls for a limited time and Alesha’s ready to lay down roots there.
REVIEW: HOPE FALLS: WILDEST DREAMS BY SAMANTHA CHASE (KINDLE WORLDS)
Hope Falls: Wildest Dreams by Samantha Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Home is more than a place. It is a feeling of comfort, a sense of belonging that comes from the people around you showing love and support. Alesha to a degree had an understanding of that but, didn't feel as if she deserved the connection and care. I received an ARC of Wildest Dreams in exchange for an honest review. The contrast between Alesha wanting and needing the security of a close knit community and Reece wanting to escape from one was the focal point of the story. The story was a great metaphor for life. Sometimes the things we leave behind are central to the road we choose to travel but we always carry home in our hearts no matter where we roam. Samantha Chase has a way of wrapping the most beautiful messages within the simplest of stories. Lovely.
