Coming Home to Silver Leaf Falls


Noah Knight is looking for a challenge in life. As the beloved principal at Silver Leaf Falls Elementary, he loves his hometown and his work, but something is missing, and he hopes a new job in another state will provide the answer. Unfortunately for him, the PTA decides the answer to his void is a wife, and they are determined to provide him with one before he can move away. Liz Jenkins never expected to return to Silver Leaf Falls after her parents’ divorce during her teens that took her away. Then her friend and the struggling summer camp from her childhood call for help. Taking over as the camp director Liz is certain that after a year, she’ll once again get the camp thriving before she heads off to the next business in need. Love isn’t part of the deal, except the locals don’t seem to understand or share her reservations about romance. Fortunately, a couple of chance encounters between Noah and Liz and a fake relationship might solve both their problems.

Readers looking for a sweet and clean romance, a quirky and fun small town, and a fake relationship turned very real will find all that and more in this book! Noah and Liz knew each other as children, now grown up they find the answers to their problems in one another. Despite the predictable ending and although the story does not have as much depth in Noah and Liz’s relationship, it does explore their histories and successfully presents their romance in a real way without major conflict or miscommunication. Overall this book is for lovers of Hallmark-esqe love stories and likable main characters.
