If you watch the Hallmark Holiday Movies, you will find that the heroine often returns to her hometown where she finds love. But going home again is filled with more than a chance to win a guy's heart. It's filled with angst.
Your hometown is the place where you grew up and probably made most of your mistakes, whether it was skipping school or speeding. Everyone knows you and remembers all the things you've done. Your neighbors are your elementary school teacher, your high school bestie, or your brothers and sisters. These people have long memories.
I loved how the heroine's hometown played a big part in Libby Kay's romance- FALLING HOME. The town of Buckeye Falls reminded me of my own hometown and not just because they are both in Ohio. FALLING HOME is the first in a wonderful series which are set in Buckeye Falls and so you will always be able to go back to this small town.
Welcome to Buckeye Falls, Ohio!
‘Tis the Season for Second Chances…And this couple is going to need a Christmas Miracle!
When New York transplant Ginny Meyer returns to her small hometown to help her father recover from surgery, she isn’t looking for any complications. No Christmas caroling, no cookie decorating, and certainly no time spent with her ex-husband, Max. The trouble is, she’s looped into helping with the Christmas Jubilee—and a certain ex is her planning partner. Now all her plans to avoid Max disappear in a puff of tinsel. But she can resist his charms, right?
Max Sanchez has three great loves in his life—his diner, Christmas, and his ex-wife. He’s spent two years missing the woman who broke his heart and left town, and he’ll use any excuse to spend time with her. Max hopes some holiday cheer, and his famous cheese enchiladas, can help them find their way back together. Buckeye Falls hasn’t felt the same since Ginny left, and Max can tell she’s warming to the idea of staying in town. Now if only he could get her to stay with him…
With a little help from the residents of Buckeye Falls, this Christmas is bringing more than presents under the tree.
Author Libby Kay’s books are perfect for fans of Kristan Higgins’ second chance romances or Sharon Sala’s smalltown romances. Readers will fall in love with Buckeye Falls, Ohio and the townspeople as they embrace the holiday season. Slip in to this enchanting smalltown and stay awhile! You might just fall in love…
Ginny paced through the house that night. Sleep was not an option, as she had too many competing thoughts vying for space in her muddled brain. She did laundry, triple-checked that her father’s overnight bag was packed, scoured the stovetop, and gathered more firewood from the shed. She did anything to keep busy, anything to stop thinking about her father’s surgery … and how excited she was to see Max in a few hours.
She was also pretending that she wasn’t thinking about his lips, or the fact that she desperately wanted to taste them. God, why had she fangirled over her ex-husband like that? And why couldn’t she stop thinking about how soft his flannel shirt felt on her fingers, or how safe and protected she felt in his embrace? Get a grip, Ginny!
During times like these, stressful times when uncertainty clouded around her, Ginny gravitated toward the kitchen. Whether over a cup of coffee or a meal, she liked to center herself in the warm space. There was something about being surrounded by happy memories and familiar scents that slowed her racing heart.
But for all the happy memories in this kitchen, there were a couple that tore her up inside. One of these memories Ginny kept hidden away because it was too much to even speak about. On a morning like this one, when no one was awake and the house was still, Ginny had watched her mother leave.
