After reading the description of this book you have pretty much read the book. The only thing you are missing out on is Tessa's constant bitching about life and just being a bitch to EVERYONE!!!! Tessa killed this book for me. I didn't like her at all. She was so negative about anything and everything. She was just annoying and a negative nancy. Blahhh Blahhhh Blahhh
Wasn't a fan.

Imagine being brought up in the hometown your ancestors not only founded but had named after them…. Now imagine not liking everyone minding your business but the township being so small that everyone knows everything almost before you’ve done anything. That’s what it seemed like to Tessa Cutter who grew up in Cutter’s Creek before, abo ...more
The HomeTown Hoax was an OK read.
The writing was done well and the storyline was fairly engaging but I failed to connect with Tessa, this played a part in my overall enjoyment. On the plus side was Logan's character, he made the book for me, he was a sweetheart and I really liked him.

After reading and loving The Hookup Hoax, I knew I had to check out more by Heather Thurmeier. The premise of this one caught my eye, and once I started reading, I was enveloped in the world.

She meets Logan in an unfortunate way, causing her to have an instant dislike toward him. After being fo ...more

3,5 Sweet stars from me
Well that was a very interesting book but it didn't have the intensity i was hoping for.

city (later we'll learn that it wasn't the only reason for her departure), after
a while she returns home for a camping trip...then she meets Logan
....and her life turns upside down as she tries to keep her emotions for him but she doesn't manage to and
falls in love wi
To be honest, this wasn’t a favorite of mine.
There’s Tessa and Logan, spending a week at a cabin with Tessa’s family. Tessa lives in NYC, and has no interest in going back to her hometown to settle. Something her family doesn’t agree, all they want is for her to come back for good. Have to say, I wasn’t a fan of that at all. Enough already, people, she doesn’t want to live there, let her be for once. It was super annoying, and kinda ragey, the way they treated her, with zero respect, ...more
