Review: Here To Stay by:Melissa Tagg

Here to Stay (Where Love Begins, #2)
About the Book:
Witty and Heartwarming Contemporary Romance by an Up-and-Coming Author

Blake Hunziker has played nomad for five years and landed in his fair share of trouble too. But now he's finally returning to his hometown--the Lake Michigan tourist town of Whisper Shore. Counting on a not-so-warm welcome, he's surprised at not only a positive reception but also a job offer. Determined to settle down and prove himself responsible, he agrees to the catch that comes with the job offer--coordinating the annual Christmas festival--even though he has no idea how he'll pull it off.

Autumn Kingsley, inn owner and experienced organizer of the Christmas festival, has always dreamed of traveling the world. Now she has a job opportunity in Paris and a surprise potential investor coming to town who just might take on her family's inn and finally leave her free to go. The only problem is that she has just two weeks to whip the inn into shape.

Their families have a long history of not getting along, but when Blake comes to Autumn for help with the festival, she actually agrees...in exchange for his help with the repairs to her inn. They may have struck a simple deal, but complications are quick to pile on when the guy who's had enough of running away and the woman who can't wait to leave join forces.

My Review:
 Autumn Kingsley knows Whisper Shore like the back of her hand, she has lived there her whole life and she is ready for a change. As the men in her life return, she feels the need to run away. She receives a job offer from Paris and a possible investor is coming to visit. It seems that God has sent these blessings her way. But she has a problem, she has a "to do" list a mile long that she needs some help with if she is ever going to see any of these things through.

 Blake Hunziker, has finally come home to Whisper Shore, after five years of running away. Widely known for his "fake" relationship with a DIY celebrity and his brothers death, Blake can't believe he was chosen to put on and organize the Annual Christmas Festival. Not many people care for him much, but he has to follow through with the job that has been entrusted to him. He needs a lot of help and he is holding out hope that Autumn will definitely pitch in to pull this off.

 Melissa Tagg has managed to send us another brilliant story that is sure to warm your hearts with its small town feel. She can draw you in and get you rooting for the main character. This one is a winner!
