H an exciting suspense and a wonderful omance45 StarsAn ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley WOW From beginning to end this book kept me guessing Great plot excellent writing I like my female leads to be strong and courageous or at least grow in character as the book moves forward Leah as the main lead was eally iffy she went back and forth so many times that I went back and forth with my decision To ead or not to ead is the uestion To avoid DNF I ploughed on It took me 4 days to ead the book in bits and pieces I hated the main character Though 80% of the book I felt she is just using the male character Ryan just for her own fun Story is simple Leah liked Ryan in high school but breaks off from him as he was too different ead it as slim intelligent and nerdy They buried a time capsule then now 20 years hence they want to escavate that and put in a new one There is a hitch someone has put a camera oll in the time capsule and wants that truth to be buried By the way Leah does like Ryan now ead ich successful drool worthy body The book by Jannine Gallant at 368 pages is too long and feels longer as the plot is too loopy and has no substance The author has made an attempt to generate suspense but unfortunately it falls flatter than a pancake The only character I liked and kind of pitied was the male lead Ryan Alexander he is sweet and kind Too bad he makes the same poor choices yet again 20 years hence liking Leah The book goes on at snail pace with the voice of the villains making their appearance suddenly in the midst of love story ead neither love nor a story On the whole an okay ead aka boring I eceived an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Lyrical Press and this is my honest and unbiased opinio.

Write what you know I've taken this advice to heart creating characters from small towns and plots that unfold in the great outdoors I grew up in a tiny Northern California town and currently live in beautiful Lake Tahoe with my husband and two daughters When I'm not busy writing I hike or snowshoe in the woods around my home Whether I'm writing contemporary historical or romantic suspense
