5 stars for Home to River’s Edge by Nan Reinhardt #sweetromance #romance #bookreview

Title: Home to River’s Edge

Author: Nan Reinhardt

Genre: Sweet Contemporary Romance

Book Blurb:

She’s determined to start a new chapter, so why is she still drawn to a man from her past?

When Jasmine Weaver, the chief of staff to a powerful D.C. congresswoman, chose integrity, she didn’t anticipate ringing in the New Year disgraced, unemployed, and sleeping in her childhood bedroom. Now back in River’s Edge, Indiana, identical triplet Jazz has her sisters’ support while she plans her next steps. She agrees to lead the committee for their high school’s fifteenth reunion, never dreaming that her co-chair is the man who broke her teenage heart.

As the new CEO of Walker Construction, Elias Walker has taken the family business to new levels of success. He’s buried himself in work to ease the grief of losing his fiancé several years earlier and wants nothing more than to be a carpenter again. Elias grudgingly agrees to co-chair the high school’s reunion committee, but when Jazz Weaver blows into town, suddenly anything seems possible.

These high school sweethearts have lived half their lives apart. Can they reinvent themselves back in the town where it all began?

My Review:

Can high school sweethearts reignite their love fifteen years later? Nan Reinhardt is back with a new small town romantic series and book one is an emotional gem. A woman returns to her hometown on New Year’s Eve and bumps into the one man she wants nothing to do with. He broke her heart and she’s not been the same. But he’s someone she can’t help but reconnect with. There isn’t one thing I don’t like about this book. The descriptive narration, plot progression, characters, romantic tension, and more combine to make Home to River’s Edge an unforgettable read.

Let’s start with the characters. Both Jasmine and Elias have had some heartbreaking losses. Neither is looking for love, but fate keeps throwing them together. The characters are realistically drawn and are easy to connect with. I enjoyed watching them navigate starting anew in the same hometown they grew up.

The romance is second chance and while it’s a common trope these days, Nan Reinhardt adds her own spin on it. There’s a heartwarming almost wholesome quality to this romance. While they fell in love, so did I.

The writing is masterful and is everything I expect from this author. You will fall in love with this couple, this town, this book.

My Rating: 5 stars
