Coming home is hard for Lane. Hard because her beloved uncle Harry has died suddenly, but also because of him. Kale.
Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane’s reason for leaving home and moving to New York. Seeing him with someone else, in love with someone else, shouldn’t have hurt. But it did. It really, really did. So she upped sticks and left, started a new life and cut herself off from her past.
But now she’s back and all the feelings are right there. As if she had never left.
Emotions are running high, and tragedy has a funny way of bringing people together. But is Lane reading the signs right? Are they still just friends, or is there something more?

My first read by this author and I loved every emotional word of it. I hate crying books, I really do, but this one was just so well written that I fell in love with it. I loved that the emotions of the main character, Lane are just so raw and real. I am also no a fan of flashback books, but again this one is so well written that I loved the flashbacks. I love looking back and living those moments in Lane's life to help understand her character better.
This book absolutely gutted me. How can one person be so strong after going through so much loss and still come out on the other side? I don't know, but I do know what Lane is one strong female character and I enjoyed reading about the discovery of herself after the many years of her being lost and numb.
There is so much grief and devastation in this book, but there is so much love and comfort as well. Lane needed that time away from her family and friends to be able to find her way back home. Even though there was lump the size of Texas in my throat the entire time I read this book, I really enjoyed it all. All the emotions from all the characters. I love that Lane grew enough that she knew she need to make amends with each one of her family members and I liked that they all made peace with each other. Even the characters that I though would just fade away still held meaning and made an impact on Lane once she realized where she belongs.
This is a great read and I will definitely be reading more from this author.
