Hooked on You (Maple Falls #1) by Kathleen Fuller

 

She never wanted to come back. He never wants to leave. The town of Maple Falls has plans for them both.

Riley McAllister is living the dream in New York City . . . if the dream means being a struggling mixed-media artist, part-time food delivery driver, and having a carefully curated social media to hide all of the above. She refuses to admit defeat and move back to small-town Maple Falls, but when her grandmother breaks her leg sliding into third base during a softball game (she was safe, by the way), Riley reluctantly agrees to go home and help the woman who raised her—while secretly hoping she can convince Mimi to sell her house and yarn shop and move in with a good friend. Then Riley can return to her new life in NYC, on her own and for good.

But Mimi has her own plans, which include setting Riley up with local baseball star Hayden Price, who returned to Maple Falls after an injury ended his major league career. Now he works at his father’s hardware store, coaches the church softball team, and worries about the declining town. It’s not the life he dreamed of having.

With a little meddling and a lot of kindness from the town, Hayden and Riley find themselves unexpectedly falling for each other as they discover the true meaning of home

Welcome to Maple Falls, where everyone knows your name and your business.

My Review

They say you can't go home again, but two previous Maple Falls residents have returned, one permanently, the other to get her Grandmother back on her feet. What they never expected is to find one another.

I love the banter that goes on here, and the love of each other that is given to the other residents of this town, especially Mimi's friends.

Can two rather broken individuals find a way to romance and beyond? Can a dying town be revived, some answers are forthcoming, but others are still waiting for answers.

Loved the title, especially knowing the author's enjoyment of yarn.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required t
