4 charming stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was a fun young adult contemporary with the unusual setting of a southern swamp..... this book is classified as a romantic suspense, however I read several reviews before reading this that said it was heavier on the romance than the suspense.... so I went into this expecting a lot of romance and not so much suspense, sometimes expectations are everything..... The romance was charming and sweet, but I found the suspense more than satisfying....

Willow is the new girl in town, who just so happens to live next-door to the hottest guy in school....Beau is the boy who has dated all the girls, but never cared about any of them, until Willow.... i’m sure you’re thinking, I’ve read this before.... but there were several things about this book that made it unique and fresh....

The setting of the Georgian swamp I found really unusual and fun.... from crazy granny feeding the alligators to the creepy woods surrounding the bog..... it was really a fabulous backdrop for the story.... I also appreciated the positive relationships between the teenagers and their parents/grandparents....

There also was a serial killer in this book.... Luring girls out to the swamp and killing them, girls who all happened to be ex girlfriends of Beau.... there were some pretty creepy parts of this book chasing killers through the swamp.... I think if there were a serial killer roaming in the swamps I would stay clear, but that’s just me.... interesting mystery, and I definitely did not see the ending to that coming....

The only thing I wish was that the characters were a little better developed, along with their relationship.... it was sweet, but I just wanted a little bit more....

If you enjoy young adult contemporary I‘d definitely recommend this, it is fun and unique.... it is also clean, so I don’t see why it would not be appropriate for younger teens as well....

*** thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book***
