The "What If" Guy

Brooke Moss
Contemporary Romance

"Unfortunately, on this particular road, in this particular county, blatant observations tended to be even more antagonizing."




Thirteen years ago, Autumn walked away from the love of her life.  She left to have another man's baby, but she never forgot Henry.  Now, returning to her old hometown to care for her estranged and now ailing father, Autumn must face her past.  Not only the small town who were a part of her painful childhood, but it seems that Henry has moved to town as well.  And he is her son's teacher.  Henry is going through a divorce and seemingly has moved on.  As small towns go, they cannot seem to avoid each other.  As Autumn begins to rebuild her life, does she dare think she may get a second chance at true love?

My Opinion: This was a good book that followed a good storyline all the way through.  Dealing with a wide range of emotions, loyalties, and personal growth.  A wide variety of characters created the small-town feel and flushed out the setting and story.  The story focused on Autumn and to be honest I think she was a bit immature and annoying at times, but alternately she was a very realistic and fallible character.  Henry was a perfect dream guy through most of the book.  Their romance was sweet but a little dry.  More of a story about finding home and not running from your problems or fears.  I have to note that the morals seemed a bit iffy in hindsight: closed door yes, but respective marital statuses were an issue for me.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
