    As always a Debbie Macomber leaves you wanting more and with a smile on your face. I highly recommend this story of 2 people finding each other again.

    This is the story of high school sweethearts Chase and Letty. Letty left Wyoming 9 years earlier to pursue a singing career. She returns home with a 5 year old daughter when she nees heart surgery. I could barely finish this one. The actions of the characters made no sense. This is definitely not one of the author's better books.

    I really enjoyed this story. Letty moved away from a town and friends that she loved, looking for a spotlight for her singing career. But, she always loved the small town that she moved away from...A lovely story of a romance between two people and the small town community that they loved.

I started this book with the expectations of a short, sweet, maybe overly cheesy romance. It's only 251 pages, so I didn't expect the plot to be particularly exciting or even that original (my grandmother loves western/cowboy romances - Diana Palmer takes up like 90% of her bookshelves - so I've seen the "girl leaves town then comes back years later and goes back to her old beau" trope a hundred times), but I DID expect it to be a fun read. Spoiler alert: it really isn' UGH! Where do I even begin? I started this book with the expectations of a short, sweet, maybe overly cheesy romance. It's only 251 pages, so I didn't expect the plot to be particularly exciting or even that original (my grandmother loves western/cowboy romances - Diana Palmer takes up like 90% of her bookshelves - so I've seen the "girl leaves town then comes back years later and goes back to her old beau" trope a hundred times), but I DID expect it to be a fun read. Spoiler alert: it really isn't sweet, and it is NOT fun. There were so many moments where I wanted to either throw the book across the room or reach into the pages and just slap the crap out of Chase or both. I really did not want to finish this, but like I said, it's only 251 pages, and I was committed. I've given up on too many books lately and I just wanted to finally finish one. Sigh. Let me go down the list of things that bothered me (and yes, I wrote everything down as I read this mess): -Letty (h) left Wyoming nearly 10 years ago. She never asked Chase (H) to wait for her but he did. He ends up resenting her when she gets pregnant by another man four years later. -Letty left to chase her dreams of becoming a singer. Instead of believing in her, Chase seemed to comfort himself in the belief that she would fail and come back to him within a year. He wasn't actually supportive of her and didn't believe she could achieve her goals. -Chase holds on to his resentment and anger towards Letty for having Cricket (her daughter) for five whole years. When Letty does return, he treats her and Cricket like garbage. -Chase intentionally says cruel things to Letty just to try to provoke her into getting defensive. When she doesn't, he's disappointed in her - but not himself for being a total douche. -(view spoiler)[Chase literally stalks Letty on more than one occasion. He calls the local doc behind her back to see if she'd made an appointment, then drives through town looking for her to confront her because they said she'd never called (um, isn't that a HIPAA violation? lol). Then he follows her all the way to another doctor an hour away to see if she's going there to have sex with someone. (hide spoiler)] -(view spoiler)[Chase confronts Letty about what he believes is a lie (that she saw the doctor) AT THE CEMETERY WHERE HER PARENTS ARE BURIED. He walks up to her while she's talking to them and crying and is incredibly insensitive and downright mean to her when he accuses her of lying. (hide spoiler)] -Every time Chase kisses Letty it's when one or both of them are angry at the other. HE KEEPS KISSING HER EVEN SHE SAYS NO AND TRIES TO PUSH HIM AWAY FROM HER. -Chase kisses her and then will immediately go back to being mean to her or will avoid her for weeks. When she can't look at him the next day after he kisses her the first time (because he'd immediately snapped at her and walked out afterward), he thinks she's embarrassed (which makes him HAPPY because apparently embarrassment = she doesn't let men touch her that often?) and convinces himself that she regrets the kiss which makes him mad at her again. -His attitude towards Letty's past sex life is just disgusting and downright misogynistic. When she first comes back and goes to church, Chase glares at her the whole time and is furious that she "has the nerve" to be in church after her "horrible sins." Then his whole being happy that she's embarrassed because he believes that means she doesn't actually sleep around that much. And he seems to mourn the fact that she's no longer a virgin like she'd been when she left (or, as it's repeatedly called in the book: "innocent"). (view spoiler)[Never mind the fact that Letty eventually confides in him that Cricket's father had pressured her into a relationship, and then raped her while she was drunk because she called him by Chase's name. She tries to downplay it by claiming he "didn't exactly" rape her, but even so, Chase tells her he doesn't want to hear it. The woman he supposedly loves is telling him about something awful that happened to her and he tells her he doesn't want to hear about it? Oh, wow, what a true romeo! (hide spoiler)] -This cringe-worthy line: "The agonies of the damned knowing another man had tasted the sweet fruit of her innocence." blegh. (view spoiler)[It's even worse that this comes immediately after Letty tells him about the rape (hide spoiler)] -Chase is EXTREMELY bossy and demanding of Letty. (view spoiler)[After he learns her secret, he immediately decides they're getting married and literally tells Letty that she doesn't have a choice and not to argue with him about it. (hide spoiler)] -CHASE WON'T TALK TO HER 99% OF THE TIME SO HE COMES TO HIS OWN CONCLUSIONS AND PUNISHES HER FOR THINGS HE IMAGINED. When Cricket lets it slip that Letty is "seeing a man with a mustache" in the city, Chase immediately assumes Letty is sleeping with another man. Then he convinces himself that she's leaving again. His reaction every time she gets near her piano makes her not want to play it anymore. (view spoiler)[After she finally seduces him after weeks of no affection from him after their marriage, he starts having sex with her all the time and then tells her that he just "wants her as often as he can have her before she goes." (hide spoiler)] He punishes her with the silent treatment, emotional abuse and manipulation ("I don't love you anymore," "I want you but I HATE you," "I never said I felt the same way about you," "Don't confuse great sex with love," among other things), and random angry kisses. -The finale, (view spoiler)[where it's explained that Chase LIED to Letty about everything - his reason for marrying her, his "insurance" covering the cost of her surgery, and why he asked her if she was pregnant - (hide spoiler)] is apparently supposed to be romantic but it's actually just manipulative? He accused her of lying to him when she didn't and punished her for it, but when he ACTUALLY lied to her it was okay because he was "making a huge sacrifice for her"?? On what planet. All I got from the last few pages of the book were that (view spoiler)[Chase lied to Letty just to get her to marry him, lied about how much money he had and having insurance to cover her, and then desperately wanted to have any possible reason (pregnancy) to keep her trapped with him. (hide spoiler)] That's just all the things I hated about Chase, the "hero". I could make another list of the things I hated about Letty's brother Lonny, since he's almost as bad with his misogyny and the childish "I insult her and argue with her all the time because I like her and can't admit it" crap between him and Joy. It's not cute when little boys pull little girls' pigtails because they "like" them, and it's certainly not cute when grown men set out to make women miserable because they "like" them. Really wish I hadn't wasted my time on this one, but it was too late to turn back.

    I really didn't like this book. Letty is such a whiny woman and she totally doesn't understand Chase or her brother. I wanted to slap her and making her ill didn't help the case. I didn't feel sympathy for her and more than once wanted her to just drop dead and stop troubling the fine men in her life.

Letty left their hometown (and Chase) 9 years ago to pursue a music career. Now she's back with a 5 year old child and a big secret.

She has a heart condition that was discovered during pregnancy and now she's got to have a surgery that is life or death. Without it, she will not be able to live much longer. So she goes back to their hometown to stay with her brother, Lonnie, and she runs into Chase. Her daughter, Cricket, is SMITTEN with him and loves him a lot from the get go even though he is grouchy and wants nothing to do with her. Both Letty and Chase have changed-- shes more humble (she now has to take handouts and get a lot of help) and he is much more broody after the love of his life left and got pregnant with someone else's child. Can they come back together!? Read to see! Love Debbie Macomber for a nice, refreshing read. SPOILERS AHEAD: Chase and Letty end up together HEA. Her brother also gets together with Letty's best friend (Joy). She's sort of indifferent to him and it angers him until they finally start to bond.

It disturbs me to my core that this book is rated about the same as a classic like The Princess Bride.

    Dysfunctional love. It was interesting to compare Ms. Macomber's earlier writing to some of her later writings. The growth in complexity of her characters & story lines is the most obvious feature. But what stays constant is her basic family love, devotion & values. I also like seeing church being such a normal role in the characters' lives. Dysfunctional love. It was interesting to compare Ms. Macomber's earlier writing to some of her later writings.

    Can major heart surgery mend a broken heart? An enjoyable love story set on a ranch in Red Spring, Wyoming... A broken love affair when Letty left for a singing career in California. When she returns years later with a five year old daughter and in need of major surgery will Chase be able to forgive her and pick up where they left off?

    Wonderful Story I never expect anything less than wonderful when it's a Debbie Macomber book. Letty has been gone for nine years. She returns with her five year old daughter and a heart problem. Chase, the man she left behind, is full of resentment. It's time to mend fences and repair bridges. Great characters. I loved it.

    About letty coming home after not hitting it big. And running back into her old boyfriend. Then there's a health scare and all. If it didn't have that part of the story I feel like I wouldn't have liked it as much. It's okay read kind of predictable. I don't know Debbie macomber is an author that can be hit or miss for me.

    Debbie Macomber is one of my favourite authors and I'm working my way through all of her books, not found a book I didn't enjoy yet abs so haven't, although this is an old book of hers is still as good as her current releases. I couldn't put this down so finished it in a few hours, a must read if you like Country romance.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed this book till that last quarter. Give me a break. Chase sells his family land to pay for a expensive surgery that would have been paid for if they waited to get married. He says he deceived her because she didn’t like being a charity case. There more but I already said to much. Talk about messed up.

    Oh my goodness! I got this book at the grocery store during the pandemic or quarantine 2020 as I call it . I like this author because of the small town charm . I have been following her career for years. I love this book and the romance between Letty and Chase. Cricket is so cute. I didn't want this book to end. I loved it! A+

    Really enjoyed this romance by D. Macomber. I read the companion story that went w/this one and liked it too. A very predictable yet light romance. I enjoy D. Macomber as an author. Will definitely read more of hers. I always snap hers up when they come on sale through bookbub.

    This is a reissue of an early book by the author. That said it is a very basic story, basically described and lacks the depth and complexity of her later works. If you appreciate the artist author she has become, you might want to skip this earlier work.

    They say you never forget your first love. That's definitely true for Chase and Letty. When Letty comes back, Chase is distant and rude. Letty is keeping a huge secret from Chase and her brother. Mean words are said.

    Not my favorite by Macomber. Probably because it was published in the 80's, and I find I have a horrible intolerance for any romance written in that decade. I cannot quite pinpoint what it is, but I think the characters are too weak and unrealistic for me. That is all.
