Synopsis: A teenage girl growing up in a campground, with her single mom and little brother, is heartbroken when she finds out that they may have to sell their property due to hospital debt. Her little brother is now recovering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a very serious nerve disorder. She befriends the possible-future-developer’s son, who conspires against his father in order to try and help her save the campground. She’s not sure she can trust that his intentions are sincere, both with his opposition to his father, and her heart.

My Thoughts: This was so sweet. I really loved the setting of this story! It takes place in a campground, up in the mountains and forests. The story is a bit unlikely, as there is definitely instalove, and the whole, possible future-developer’s-son falling for the teenager (especially so quickly) thing is a bit unbelievable.

Also, his actions and behavior and being-able-to-do-everthing-ness at only, what, age 21? Nah. But it’s not in your face either…I still enjoyed the story!

I loved most of the plot, there’s a lot of facets that come together well in the end! Only starting at the second-to-last chapter did it get a bit cheesy. All lovey-dovey perfectness and everything came together just a *tad* too easily at the very end. Without spoiling: the whole helicopter thing? For real?! Like, why would his cousin even do that, at THAT moment. Cheese factor! Still debating on if it’s a 4 or 4.5…4.25 would be great, really.

I received this ebook for free, in exchange for a review, from NetGalley.
