Title: The Trouble With Goodbye (Fairhope #1)
Author: Sarra Cannon
My stomach twists as the sign for Harrison’s Pecan Farm comes into view.
Exactly twelve miles from the house I grew up in and swore I’d never move back to.
“I’m trying to decide if you really aren’t interested or if you’re just trying to protect yourself, ” he says.
His words hit way too close to home and a lump forms in my throat. I swallow it down and take a step back.
I’m not used to people being so direct with me. I’m used to passive aggressive bullshit.
“Maybe it’s you I’m trying to protect,” I say.
I actually read this one earlier than I planned and while I enjoyed it, I don’t think I would recommend it. There were quite a few times in this book that I found myself wanting punch people and throw things.
The story itself was interesting, and I liked the romance, but there was too much bad stuff for me to really say that I enjoyed it. I probably won’t be reading the other books in the series.
