HOMETOWN PRINCESS by Lenora Worth is a sweet, even-paced romance. I wasn't aware when I began to read HOMETOWN SWEETHEART that it was the second book in the Hometown series. I loved the first book in the series, HOMETOWN SWEETHEART, and was excited to read about Simon in HOMETOWN PRINCESS.

Cari Duncan moves back to her hometown after her father passes away and leaves her the old Victorian house in Knotwood Mountain, Georgia, where she grew up in. Her stepmother is not happy, in spite that the hou

Cari Duncan came home to Knotwood Mountain after her father died to open a store in her childhood home. Rick Adams is back in town working with his family. Vandals are trying to make sure Cari's new business fails before it even opens.
It was a great book I never wanted to put it down.
Two-haiku review:

She returns to house
Left to her by estranged dad
Next door to old crush

Christian, just a bit
Suspense--who wants her to leave?
Ending too easy
such a good read, kinda of repetitive in regards to the situation with her father which made it a little daunting at times, but overall a great story and a quick read.

I love "fluffy" romances - but this was a little too sappy, or maybe juvenile for me.
