It's been years since Charity and Buck have seen each other but with her parents out of the country and her own home being repaired she's forced to go back to Kings Meadow to her parent's home if she wants to make her book deadline. Wouldn't you know that her parent's next door neighbor happens to be Buck?! After an accident with her dog renders Buck nearly helpless Charity feels obligated to help where she can and before long she finds herself enjoying Buck's company more than she thought possible.
Whenever You Come Around was an enjoyable story filled with mostly likable characters (and one who you can't help but loathe) whose past and present intertwine. Charity has been carrying a secret for years and the time has come where that secret can no longer stay hidden. She's spent so much time envisioning what would happen when the people closest to her find out the truth and as I've found to be the case with these things; the outcome we imagine is usually far from reality. I felt as though the story was missing something but I can't quite put my finger on it. I did feel that the ending of the story arrived a bit quickly and could have been fleshed out a bit more. Other than that though it was well-written and a quick read!
Book DescriptionJust when Charity's wild imagination failed her, a flesh-and-blood hero walked into her life.
Best-selling author Charity Anderson returns to her hometown of Kings Meadow to defeat a bad case of writer's block. She imagines she'll spend a lonely summer writing and then return to her home in Boise. She soon finds herself caring for Buck Malone, a wilderness guide-and the object of her unrequited teenage crush. But what else can she do? Her dog Cocoa caused the accident that left Buck with a broken ankle and wrist, taking him off the trail for weeks of prime tourist-season work.
Buck and Charity have gone different ways since high school, and at first it seems they have little in common. Buck loves the simple, low-key life he's made for himself in the mountains of Idaho, and she's a woman accustomed to the faster, bustling pace of the city. But spending so much time together has Buck hoping to change her mind about staying in the small town she thought she'd left behind for good.
It's a summer for discovering that young love is a spark not soon extinguished.
