In this brand-new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a scandal brings a young man back home to the small town, crazy family, and first love he left behind
Reed Stewart thought he’d left all his small town troubles—including a broken heart—behind when he ditched tiny Bloomville, Indiana, ten years ago to become rich and famous on the professional golf circuit. Then one tiny post on the Internet causes all of those troubles to return . . . with a vengeance.
Becky Flowers has worked hard to build her successful senior relocation business, but she’s worked even harder to forget Reed Stewart ever existed. She has absolutely no intention of seeing him when he returns—until his family hires her to save his parents.
Now Reed and Becky can’t avoid one another—or the memories of that one fateful night. And soon everything they thought they knew about themselves (and each other) has been turned upside down, and they—and the entire town of Bloomville—might never be the same, all because The Boy Is Back.
Romantic, light-hearted, and laugh-out-loud funny!
This is an intriguing story that takes us on a journey through the trials of elderly parents, crazy siblings, teenage struggles, and enduring love.
The writing style is unconventional, with the narration being told completely through text messages, emails, and journal entries, but is nevertheless smooth, clear, and easy to follow. And the characterization is perfection, with an incredible cast of characters who are charming, witty, quirky, fun, real, and loveable.
Overall this story is brimming with humour, emotion, familial dynamics, small-town hijinks and second-chance romance, and it is hands down one of the funniest rom-coms I have read this year.
This book is due to be published on October 18, 2016.
