"Fern Brookbanks has wasted far too much of her adult life thinking about Will Baxter. She spent just twenty-four hours in her early twenties with the aggravatingly attractive, idealistic artist, a chance encounter that spiraled into a daylong adventure in the city. The timing was wrong, but their connection was undeniable: they shared every secret, every dream, and made a pact to meet one year later. Fern showed up. Will didn't. At thirty-two, Fern's life doesn't look at all how she once imagined it would. Instead of living in the city, Fern's back home, running her mother's lakeside resort--something she vowed never to do. The place is in disarray, her ex-boyfriend's the manager, and Fern doesn't know where to begin. She needs a plan--a lifeline. To her surprise, it comes in the form of Will, who arrives nine years too late, with a suitcase in tow and an offer to help on his lips. Will may be the only person who understands what Fern's going through. But how could she possibly trust this expensive-suit wearing mirage who seems nothing like the young man she met all those years ago. Will is hiding something, and Fern's not sure she wants to know what it is. But ten years ago, Will Baxter rescued Fern. Can she do the same for him?"--… (mer)

This is a dual timeline, second-chance romance that’s full of Dirty Dancing summer nostalgia mixed with Before Sunrise vibes since the meeting between Fern and Will involves one night touring a city that ends up life-changing. It was a little slow for me at the beginning but paid off in the end.

“Let me tell you something about me: I am extremely picky about people. Most of them, I don't particularly like. I have very high standards for the ones I let into my life these days. And you, Will Baxter, are my favorite of all of them.” ( )

I'm not much of a romance reader but when this book was chosen for Canada Reads 2024 I thought I would give it a try. The defender said that romance fiction is the most read genre in the world but I don't think I'll be reading many more. Since this was the first book kicked off Canada Reads this year, I imagine the other defenders were similarily unimpressed.

It's the old story line: boy meets girl, they fall in love, they part, then they meet again later and are still in love. The only interesting part of this book was that the girl/woman inherits a vacation lodge in Ontario's lake country and she has to work hard to make it profitable again. The boy/man is now a financial consultant (he was an artist when they met) and was hired by the mom before she was killed in a car accident. It surprised the daughter when he showed up at the lodge a few weeks after her mom's death but nothing after that was really a surprise.

If you want a light, fluffy read then this is probably the book for you. Otherwise, don't waste your time. ( )

Predictable and trite. Lots of "I learned at 17...." but wait for 100 pages before you find out what happened at 17. Lots of misunderstandings that could have been resolved and questions that could have been answered easily, but weren't. Resolved by a previously unseen character arriving and explaining everything. Will has anxiety issues that he believes will escalate if he has children, but Fern is happily pregnant at the end of the novel. She'll raise the kids and take care of his mental health and she's happy because the sex is great and they've spent several week together. Need I say more? ( )

The premise of this book is weak. I gave it 2 stars. ( )
