This was the first book that I have read from Sarah Hegger and I really enjoyed it. It was an emotional story that will have you on a roller coaster of emotions. Both Kelly and Gabe have issues from their past that are going to hit them full force in the present and before they can get their future HEA, they are going to have to take care of them. The characters and story line was wonderful. You will feel each emotion as the characters are feeling them and you will be rooting for them to get the ...more

Book 3, Walk on by, by Sarah Hegger, is out and Gabe is delicious and Kelly is coffee shop owning heroine. I keep saying each couple is my favorite and I am going to say it again! Who doesn't love a woman who owns her own coffee shop and a man who loves animals? Even if his favorites are Great Whites. Get out there and get your copy today or start the series. If you want more of Sarah Hegger try her Ghost Falls series or her Willow Park series. Sarah's character just leaps off the page and wrap ...more

A true small town romance, Walk On By features a full cast of characters that distract from the central couple. While this book is a standalone, if you haven’t read the other books in the series, you’ll likely have trouble keeping up with everyone. The story follows Gabe, a veterinarian who returns to his hometown while in between jobs. He runs into Kelly when he arrives back in town. They went to high school together, so when they strike up a conversation and end up having a one night stand, it ...more

Whatever makes you happy - what we think we want is not always what we need...

This plot took me by surprise. I was sure the story will go into completely different direction. I have to say I just deep dive into the story not fully reading the blurb. It was very emotional journey, full of struggle from both hero and heroine side. Sometimes we are so fixed on what ifs that we do not give another chance to anyone or anything that just suddenly pops into our lives. Meddling parents and family in nee

I've really gotten attached to the Passing Through Series, and Sarah Hegger's fantastic writing style which is very original & highly addictive. So, I'm not going to give a ton away, because the beauty of this author is discovering her stories when going in blind to be honest. Basically, Kelly believes the timing is right for her & her High School "love" or the one that got away if you will. Then there's Gabe, who believes that he's just coming home for a short visit, as he has some demo ...more

Gabe is back home for the first time in years and is already counting down the days until he can leave again. While drowning his sorrows at the bar he runs into Kelly and let's just say they have an unforgettable night. The only problem is that Kelly finally has a chance with her highschool sweetheart and Gabe will not be sticking around. They decide on friendship but underneath it all is a sexual chemistry that can not be denied. Apart from this relationship sputtering to start there is also a ...more

Gabe found a passion for animal rescue as a child. As a young veterinarian, he fell in love with shark rescue and research. He had a relationship with a charming Australian whom he told he was not interested in marrying. Since her dad ran the project, his return for the wedding of his brother Ben to Poppy turned into an extended stay while he contemplated next steps.

Funny thing about Twin Elks - it seems to grow on people.

Kelly found herself in love with Poppy as a best friend. Now that Vince

I enjoyed this book. This is a emotional story about the often big differences between what your mind and your heart will tell you that you want. I liked Kelly and Gabe. I thought that these two were very relatable but in different ways. Kelly's long clung to ideal of "The One That Got Away" came across as genuine and I think it will strike a chord with readers. It is something I feel we are all guilty of, whether we will admit it or not. Be it someone we actually know or that perfect fantasy so ...more

Walk On By Sarah Hegger is book Three in the Passing Through Series. This is the story of Gabe Crowe and Kelly Ashford. I have read the previous books and the previous characters do appear in this book but you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Gabe just broke up with his girlfriend and has returned home for what he thinks is just a short visit. Kelly had a crush on someone else since she was younger and now he is free but for some reason she is drawn to Gabe. They have a quic

No matter where you roam, there’s nothing like being with family and friends. A place where you know you can rely on to always welcome you with open arms. Such is the small town where Gabe grew up and has returned, licking his wounds. Kelly has lived in this wonderful small town and rekindles her friendship with Gabe. But oh there’s a love triangle and other drama mixed in. Gabe and Kelly cannot seem to see the forest for all the trees. Plus it takes quite a while for these two to finally get on ...more

This is the third book in the Passing Through Series. This amazing Series is set in a small town named Twin Elks. Kelly and Gabe's story has it all: emotional, sexy, twisted, with a little suspense. Indie, Kelly's sister, is a strong and beautiful character. All the characters are great, and I loved to see again the characters from the other books. The Epilogue is intriguing! I love each book in this series, and now I'm looking forward to the next book in the Series, Luke's story. I highly recom ...more

Kelly and Gabe had a one night stand and that is where it should end because Kelly is hoping for a second chance with her high school sweetheart who recently got divorced. And Gabe is just back home for a while looking for a new job. They tried keeping their attraction at bay but it kept getting in the way which makes for some funny situations, especially with Gabe's mom rooting for them to become more. I enjoyed the book immensely, it is very well written with good character development.

The Passing Through series has quickly become a fun and entertaining series. They are fun to read, entertaining and enjoyable and have some laugh out loud moments. Walk on By is no exception and even though it's part of a series, can be read as a stand alone book. Characters from the previous books do appear in Walk on By. Since I don't want to give any spoilers I'll leave this as my description of the book. Highly recommend!

What you want and what you thought you wanted.

Kelly broke her dry spell in Twin Elks with Gabe Crowe.
Vince is now divorced, but she keeps hooking up with Gabe. They both date other people.

Gabe and his girlfriend are on the outs. She wanted to get married, he didn’t.
But he’s just passing through his home town, waiting for the call to study great whites in Australia.

Will both Kelly and Gabe change their minds on what they thought they wanted?

Trouble with India and Piers.

This is book 3 in the series and so far my favorite ... this can be read as standalones but you get the whole community feel by reading them all. I was not expecting for Gabe to fall for Kelly or for her to actually still try to date Vince. This book has it all there's drama, love, and laughing. But yea I definitely did not see Gabe's ex showing up or for Vince and his kids to act like they liked India more. I was really surprised by how twisted India's ex was and how far he went in the end.

WHOA. WHOA. WHOA. Sarah blew my mind with this one! The rest of the series I was so freaking sure that Kelly’s guy was going to be Vince; and then BAM!! Gabe’s sexy ass walks into The Elk and shakes up her world!
I absolutely loved the two of them together. Their chemistry was so strong, and their genuine friendship made the whole story just perfect! They were there to get each other’s stubborn heads straight, and supported each other when it got tough.

This is a well written book with strong characters in Kelly and Gabe. The author does a great job building the story after their one night stand. She brings an interesting story with her being interested in one man but still has Kelly and Gabe gravitating back to each other no matter how much they fight it. There's tons of emotions and fun times and a great cast of supporting characters. I enjoyed reading their story.

Ahhhh Gabe and Kelly!!! Sigh!! These two! Ok Kelly is one of my favs! She is spunky, funny, and take no bull from no one. If you have read the past books you know all about Kelly! She is AMAZING!!! Gabe is a sexy, smart, and super funny guy. World traveler and all that jazz. There is so major drama in this book. It just sucks you in and spits you back out. I am in total book hangover right now! Go read...now!!! Soooo good!! Sarah you did it again love!

Gabe has returned to his home town as he's in between jobs and runs into Kelly his old high school sweetheart one night in a bar and they spend one hot night together and she hopes they can have more but things keep getting in the way. There are several things going on in this book that draws the story out a little too long but I enjoyed reading.

I really enjoyed the third Passing Through story set in Twin Elks. Kelly believes that now is the right time for her to catch "the one who got away" back in high school. But is that really what she wants or just a fantasy? There are some complicated times ahead for Kelly, Vince, Gabe, and the rest in this great story.

I thought it was an okay read. The book dragged a bit for me, compared to the previous book. There's a huge small town feel to this book as Gabe is fighting to leave this small town again. Kelly wants to try again with Vince, her high school sweetheart, now that he is divorced. It just read a bit slow. I did enjoy Gabe and Kelly's dialogues though.

Kelly pins after her high school sweetheart and Gabe is just passing through town. They didn't count on each other and the fact that they can't seem to be apart or keep their hands off each other.
I liked the portrayal of Kelly and Gabe, they are likable characters, and so relatable.

Be sure to Drive All Night, grab A Ticket to Ride and Walk on By to Twin Elks and get your fix of the fabulous characters. I have loved this series by Sarah Hegger. It has been entertaining to read and follow the romances of these couples.

Some part are a bit slowish but it’s nice to be back it this little town full of well mean busybodies. The 2 principal characters are ok and it’s nice to see how the one from the previous book are getting by.

This the 3rd book in the series has to be the best so far and the other 2 were really good. I didn't see this couple getting together at all!

Meet Kelly who's high school love is now divorced and has set her sights on re-kindling the flame with Vinnie.

But sometimes things don't work at exactly as you plan when tall good looking Gabe Crow returns home from Australia where he has lived for the past 3 years having broken up with his girlfriend. Gabe left Twin Elks feeling responsible for his father
