I read the first book in this series, Then There Was You, and really liked it so I was excited to read this one. I liked this one too, but not quite as much as the first one. The series is set in the small town of Angel Falls, and it’s a good little town and the setting works for these types of stories. The people in the first book are briefly mentioned but this story revolves around other characters in the town.
Gabby and Caden have their difficulties, there would be no plot otherwise. Caden went through a horrible divorce, and is now a single dad raising his daughter mostly on his own. Gabby is a woman who is constantly searching for something. She’s taken all types of classes over the years, to the point where her family teases her about it. Losing her mother at a fairly young age left her with more questions than answers, especially when she finds out her mother was writing a book. Gabby’s always wanted to write and finding that out gives her the impetus she needs to take a step in that direction, especially when a renowned author is teaching the course. It’s a sticky situation when a professor gets involved with a student, no matter the age, and Caden is about as ethical as they come.
This story is sweet and meanders along with an occasional hiccup along the way. I enjoyed the escape to Angel Falls.
