Kristen McKay and Tyler Kincaide have a past—one that has left her with a bone-deep animosity for him. And a secret.

Kristen and Tyler knew each other in high school and are reunited 16 years later when they are both on the Economic Development Committee for their town. While spending time together, and growing romantically closer, they both have to face miscommunication and hurt feelings from all those years ago before they can fully embrace thei

Kristen is the owner of a bookshop/coffee shop in Northridge, Georgia. Raised in poverty, she has fought her way up to owning a successful business. Tyler is the handsome son of a successful family who has just moved back to town after 17 years.

Kristen harbors a loathing for Tyler and a secret that could shatter them both.

This is a light, entertaining, easy to read romance. It is Book 2 in The Seasons of Northridge series. Although it is a little predictable, I liked the characters and enjoyed

"A Season of Love" is an eloquent novel with engaging characters that drive the story, pull readers in from the very beginning, and refuse to let go.

This is the first book I’ve read by Rebecca Heflin and I’m so glad I did. I’ve even purchased A Season to Dance, Olivia and Zach’s story, because I loved their characters so much. This is a small town story, one of my favorite genres. This story centers on Kristin and Tyler. Tyler left Northridge, Georgia after graduating high school. Now, Tyler’s back and Kristin and him are both business owners. When they’re the only two in favor of getting approved for movies to be made in town, they’re taske ...more
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing an advanced copy of “A Season to Love” by Rebecca Heflin. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

This was a cozy fall read about the cute little historical town of Northridge. Kristen has to work with Tyler to convince the town to approve a production company’s request to film a movie. While Kristen and Tyler are business owners and can see the economic benefit to allowing the movie to be shot in Northridge, the town committee is reluctant. Kristen a

Kristen felt about Tyler the way he felt about brussels sprouts- intense loathing. The Town Hall conference room serves as the monthly meeting venue for the Northridge Economic Development Council [EDC ]. The town had an active economic developmental council which advised the Town Council on economic developments matters, including business retention and expansion, a new development marketing opportunities and tourism. Tyler was the owner of Firehouse Brews, a local craft brewery, and its sister ...more

This is a story about not letting bitterness and resentment define you. Both Tyler and Kristen have been through a lot. Kristen has struggled all her life through poverty, teenage pregnancy, and more. She is putting herself through school while starting a small business and supporting her son - all on her own. She literally has no support from her community and no family left. Tyler has survived cancer, again without a lot of support - because he lived far away from his family and his fiance lef ...more

Okay, this is another one of those books where I loved the H but had some really big problems liking the h. A poor alcohol-induced decision on the part of Tyler just before he left town to go to college compounded by a lot of miscommunication which turned to anger and resentment on the part of Kristen over the results of that night and which she let simmer and brew for seventeen years. It is at this point that Tyler returns to town to establish a business and ends up having to work with Kristen ...more

3.5 stars. Oh how I have mixed feelings about this one.

Kristen and Tyler grew up together. Friends from the other side of the side of the tracks. Both harboring a crush for each other. But nothing can come of it cause Tyler is leaving for college and Kristen, a girl raised in a trailer park can’t afford that lifestyle.

17 years later Kirsten, still living in her home town owns a bookstore coffee shop and holds deep anger and resentment for a newly returned Tyler. When the two are forced to work

Tyler moves back home from New York when priorities are shifted in his life. He remembers Kristen from high school, and can't figure out why she doesn't like him, but sets out to change that. As their relationship develops, he has a secret he's keeping from her. Kristen has been mad at Tyler forever. It's practically unbearable when he moves back to Northridge. They're paired up to work on a project for the economic council, and she realizes he's not such a bad guy after all. But she's keeping a ...more

What an excellent story that I just couldn’t put down! A Season To Love is a second in the series, Seasons of Northridge and I highly recommend you read the first one as well when both Kristen and Tyler’s characters are introduced. As a reader, I can see the train wreck coming as complicated situations build, sharp tongues are wagging and sparks are flying. The characters represent real world people that are not perfect, (who wants to read a book with perfect characters?) they don’t always make ...more
This is the first book that I have read by Rebecca Haflin and I’ve got to say that I really enjoyed the book.

For me, the characters had depth; they were realistic and likeable and this had you instinctively rooting for them!

Kristen, the female protagonist had it hard growing up: her father was sent to prison and her mum was a waste of space. Kristen crushed on Tyler big time - he came from a stable family unit and he was kind to her. Something happened before he left for college, something tha

This is an excellent book. The characters are well developed and realistic. Kristen had a hard time growing up and with a father in prison and mother who was irresponsible, she had to work hard and ignore the "trailer trash" comments in school.. As a senior she was in love with Tyler but once he went off to college, she did not hear from him until he returns to their home town 16 years later. Kristen has a son, Seth, who is a talented violin player. Their relationship is genuine and she provides ...more

I wondered how she was going to match the first book, but I think Rebecca Heflin actually topped it! Kristen is a book and coffee shop owner in Northridge, Georgia who really wants them to film a movie in their small town. Local brewer, Tyler, agrees with her. When the town counsel asks them to do a presentation on why a movie would be good for the town, they realize that working together is going to require some adjustment.

Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I wasn't taken by this romance. Tyler works with the heroine and are both assigned to a work project for the town. The heroine despises the hero because he slept with her when she was younger and never called her back. I found it totally unromantic that he never remembered sleeping with her and then has the balls to be mad at her for not telling him about the consequences of that night. I just couldn't get into how out o

This book was fantastic. Kristen has grown up being teased and challenged her whole life. While struggling with her self confidence she is also the owner of a coffee shop/book store. When the guy that he always loved came back into town, she was so mad at him and for a good reason. Tyler on the other hand has no clue why she is so mad at him. While battling cancer Tyler realized that life was too short and even though he won the battle of cancer h didnt get away Scott free.

I received this book as an Arc for my own opinions.
I'm not one to read a book about secret babies but I had a hard time not reading this book.
I was drawn in by the cover and excerpt that I read.
I love the depth of the characters. They both grew up a lot in this book and i feel like they found their way in a realistic every day situation instead of unbelievable like some books are.
I wa every surprised by this book and really enjoyed reading it.

Not really my cup of tea, not keen when the story is based on misunderstandings that are stretched over the whole story and I’m not a fan of keeping secrets or children being used, I know it happens and it’s life, but not what I was expecting in what I thought was a nice romantic read. I’m sure others will enjoy this but not for me.

I thought this book was a fun read, cute but also held my attention. I enjoyed the characters but the story line was predictable from the beginning. When it came to not telling Tyler about Seth I did it see her side I felt bad for Tyler who just wanted a family and thought he could never have kids. I did not realize this was a series of books I do think I’ll read the others. I’d like to hear more about the other characters.

I enjoyed Kristen and Tyler's story. Her secrets weren't kept to be cruel, they were kept to protect herself. Tyler seems like a nice guy but his situation does make him a threat to her family.
The way they are forced to work together, their discovery of old feelings and what they do to solve their big problem makes this story hard to put down.

This is the first book I've read by this author and so glad I did! A well written, captivating, small town romance at its best. You'll love the characters and feel like you're part of their lives. No spoilers here, just letting you know it's an enjoyable read you don't want to miss out on.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a pleasant, small-town romance that is entertaining but fairly predictable. There is a huge underlying secret that drives the story but the conclusion is pretty well what is expected. The characters are likable, the plot moves at a nice pace and it all adds up to a nice beach read.
I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway for this honest review.

This was a small town romance with secrets, misunderstandings and resentments, and working together for the good of Northridge. I could understand both Kristin and Tyler’s point of view and why they acted the way they did.
