Here To Stay by Melissa Tagg

About the Book:

After playing nomad for five years, Blake Hunziker has finally had enough of adventure.

Not sure what reception he'll get from everyone back in Whisper Shore, he's stunned at not only a warm welcome from his hometown but also a job offer. The job is his if he can successfully pull off the annual Christmas Festival. If only he knew the first thing about coordinating events...

If there's one thing Autumn Kingsley knows, it's Whisper Shore. For years, she's been stuck running her family's inn when all she wants is to see the world. Now she has a visit scheduled from a potential investor who could take over the inn, as well as a dream job offer in Paris. But with just two weeks to whip the inn into shape, her chance at escape is a long shot.

The Hunzikers and the Kingsleys may not get along, but Blake knows Autumn's the only one who can help him. She agrees to a trade--she'll help with the Festival and he'll help with inn repairs. But what was meant to be a simple deal quickly becomes much more than that when the guy who's done running away joins forces with the girl who can't wait to leave.

My Thoughts:

This was a FUN book!  Lots of wacky and humorous events take place, but reader beware: Melissa will have you tearing up immediately after you've been laughing.  I loved her debut novel, "Made to Last", and it was fun to see Blake better circumstances!

Autumn is like many of us first born, obedient children.  She's put her own dreams on hold to keep her parents' dream alive.  But the Kingsley Inn is falling apart, bookings are few and far between, and her last chance to 'get on the tourism map' fell through.  How long is she supposed to hold on?

As I previously stated, this book was a lot of fun to read.  Autumn may not be accident prone normally, but boy, she certainly has some eventful antics in "Here To Stay", and usually Blake is somewhere nearby.

Faith, heart, family and humor are all elements that make a novel by Melissa pure enjoyment with a bit of wisdom sprinkled in for good measure.  My thanks to my friends at Bethany House Publishing for my advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  Even though "Here To Stay" is set during the winter months, I highly recommend it as a summertime will make you laugh and cool you off!

Happy Reading!
