Margaret Watson wrote her first book in 1991 and in a very good way, it shows. Her writing is solid, fresh and effortless to read. She understands the slow build up that comes with a belivable romance novel and she spends most of her word count exploring the characters by delving into their souls.

From my review: Sometimes, a romance is like a souffle. It’s all delicate and airy: there’s some fat and egg white for structure, and it’s sweet and light, and it can be satisfying, if not the most rib-sticking, satisfying thing you’ve ever eaten. But sometimes, because it’s a souffle, one little thing will break it, and the whole puffy thing that until that moment was fun and simple and pleasing will collapse while you stare in horror because there is NO WAY THAT JUST HAPPENED.

J'ai pas mal apprécié cette lecture qui n'est pas au "pays des petits oiseaux". Maddie a des problèmes d'argent et elle retourne dans la ville où elle passait ses étés pour vendre l'héritage qu'elle a de son oncle. Sauf que c'est compliqué car très fort émotionnellement et surtout elle retrouve un homme sur lequel elle avait flashé adolescente.

C'est l'ambiance d'une petite ville des Etats Unis avec sa communauté, ses combats pour garder les petits commerces et c'est également les fantômes du pas

Une grosse déception. Ça avait plutôt bien commencé, y'avait une réel alchimie entre nos 2 héros, mais c'est très vite tombé dans le pathos et la niaiserie au détriment de l'histoire. C'est dommage parce que ça aurait pu être plutôt sympa.
