Posey Osterhagen can't complain. She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she's surrounded by her lovable, if off-center, family and she has a boyfriend—sort of. Still, something's missing. Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking
something like Liam Murphy.
When Posey was sixteen, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart. But now he's back, sending Posey's traitorous schoolgirl heart into overdrive once again. She should be giving him a wide berth, but it seems fate has other ideas
In My Own Words:
Living up to her parents expectations is something that Posey hasn't ever been able to quite accomplish. Living in the shadow of her famous cousin, she has that one down pat. When her first love comes back to town with a teen age daughter in tow, Posey decides the best thing for her, and her heart, is to ignore him, maybe he will go away. Unfortunately, her luck can't be that good. Circumstance after circumstance seems to have them both thrown together. What she doesn't need is her mother making goo goo eyes at Liam for her traitorous cousin who by the way, has never had anything nice to say about Posey at all. Will Posey finally stand up to her family and take what she has always wanted, happiness.
"Well, I love you, even if you did ruin my life by turning into a teeneager"... (Liam and his daughter disagreeing....again)
I loved so many things about this book. Posey was eccentric and sassy, but also kind and faithful. Liam had his heart broken by losing his wife and trying to raise his daughter alone. I felt for him a lot during this book. I think I connected with him before any other characters. Posey's family....you just can't help but laugh. Posey has such wonderful friends that aren't afraid to tell her how it is, and put her straight. I can't think of one thing that I didn't really like about this book. It was a great comfort contemporary read, and one I would recommend to anyone.
