This was a Harlequin Romance … which I used to read by the dozens in my younger years - so it was a fun, nostalgic walk back in time to read this book over the Christmas holidays. I loved the story of Elissa Mason … living with her aunt Verona, passionate about the family nursery she'd worked so hard to build and develop. An unexpected Texas tornado turns Elissa's life in a different direction … nearly demolishing the nursery and destroying totally her neighbor and friend Pete Kayne's house next ...more

While payback is sweet at times for long time Elissa was helping her Aunt play matchmaker but when love hits her in the form of her best guy friend Pete does she let love grow. It was an great little read by far my favorite in the series. It had all the emotions that you want sadness, happy, love, and some laughter. While at times I did want to skip ahead and or just yell at the characters to get together already and stop being stubborn. I was a great read. 4/5 stars

Elissa Mason and Pete Kayne have lived next door to one another for years. They even went to high school together. When a tornado destroys Pete's house, Elissa's aunt insists that he move into their guest room. Suddenly, Elissa and Pete begin to see each other as much more than neighbors. Good story.

Pete is awesome, funny, sensitive--loved him. Really enjoyed this book and the interaction of Elissa and her best friends, and getting to see follow up with them on their stories. Just a fun read without all the hard-core drama. Great book.
