Partying with friends and scoring a flawless tan is about all Roxie has on her list of things to make her Hampton’s summer perfect. Her parents, however, have other plans and Grandma Betty’s farm is just one of them.
Just as her life is in shambles and the quaint town is suffocating her, she meets Chase.
Somewhere in the mix of bummer summer and small town doldrums, he becomes the boy she can’t seem to avoid falling for. Just adding him to the picture, her stay starts to get better, even if she knows it has to end with the summer holidays.
That is until Betty drops a life-shattering bomb.
Roxie must make a choice that will change her life forever. What happens when a spoiled brat from New York learns the true meaning of love, loss, and forgiveness? Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?
Good clean fun. This refreshing story of city girl meets country boy was an entertaining escape into rural life. Because the main character deals with culture shock, fake friends, jealous ex-girlfriends, divorcing parents, and the death of a family member, her problems make for a read that many young adults will relate to easily. The author’s easy-going style and character-focused plot help the books readability and focus. Although the book has strong make-out sessions and tense sexual moments, it’s overall a clean, safe read for any teenager. And this book would be mother-approved for its building up of strong moral character attributes, such as hard work, responsibility, true-friendship, and strength in a relationship.
About the Author
If you had asked 6 year old Ruthi what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have told you a Rock Star. Those dreams faded to the background when she found out who the true Rock Stars are: Authors.
She has always had a fascination with books, losing herself completely in numerous books, enjoying the worlds she found that were so unlike her own. They were her escape, and eventually became her passion. Her family has been putting up with her and her incoherent ramblings while she worked on her debut novel, Knotted Roots. Her five year old and Fiance have suffered through many “fend for yourself” nights, but somehow still manage to love her anyway.
She is now attending the Southern New Hampshire University, working on her Bachelor’s in Creative Writing/Fiction so that she can create her own worlds for others to fall in love with.
