High-powered Boston attorney Emma Madison is celebrating her latest courtroom victory when she gets a call from a number she doesn’t recognize. Area code 803 home. Juneberry, South Carolina eight hundred miles, twelve years, and a lifetime away from Boston. Emma’s father has had a serious heart attack. Emma rushes to his bedside, and a weekend trip threatens to become an extended stay. She has to work fast to arrange the affairs of his small-town law practice so she can return to her life and career in Boston.
And then Michael Evans shows up. They’d shared hopes, dreams, and a passionate love as young college students during a long-ago summer. But Emma walked away from Michael and from Juneberry to finish college and start a new life. Michael has never forgotten her.
Enveloped in the warmth of family and small-town life and discovering that she still cares for Michael Emma knows she’ll have to make a choice between the career she’s worked so hard to build and the love she left behind.

I struggled to get into this book, but I think it’s because of my background. I’d read a book with a similar plot last year, and I’m ready for a young woman attorney to actually enjoy what she does and not have to return home to find herself again. But that’s my bias LOL. This is a sweet coming home story, and one you will likely enjoy if that’s what you’re looking for.
