Description

Charming, poignant, and sexy, When You Got a Good Thing  pulled me in with its sweet charm and deft storytelling, and didn't let go until the very last page. It  has everything I love in a small-town romance!  ~USA Today Best-Selling Author Tawna Fenske 

She thought she could never go home again.  Kennedy Reynolds has spent the past decade traveling the world as a free spirit.  She never looks back at the past, the place, or the love she left behind—until her adopted mother’s unexpected death forces her home to Eden’s Ridge, Tennessee. 

Deputy Xander Kincaid has never forgotten his first love.  He’s spent ten long years waiting for the chance to make up for one bone-headed mistake that sent her running. Now that she’s finally home, he wants to give her so much more than just an apology. 

Kennedy finds an unexpected ally in Xander, as she struggles to mend fences with her sisters and to care for the foster child her mother left behind.  Falling back into his arms is beyond tempting, but accepting his support is dangerous.  He can never know the truth about why she really left. Will Kennedy be able to bury the past and carve out her place in the Ridge, or will her secret destroy her second chance?

    Love the characters...sisters ( Pru, Maggie, Athena, and Kennedy) who are brought together again with the death of their mother who was in the process of adopting Ari, her final adopted daughter. Xander, Kennedy’s true love evens out the main characters in the story. Can Kennedy finally bridge the emotional issues her abrupt leaving 10 years ago caused her family as well as the only man she has ever loved? Secrets split the family. Can enough forgiveness exist to make this family whole again? I recommend this book to readers who want to delve into the realm of guilt, love and forgiveness.

    This was an amazing love story . When Kennedy left Xander in the middle of the night after high school graduation he never knew why because of the love they shared he was heartbroken . Then 10 years later when her mother was killed in an accident Kennedy came home . Read this great book and find out about all that had happened to make her leave. Such a heart warming story. I love it.

    Kennedy is one of four foster children adopted by Joan. She would be considered the black sheep of the family; living a somewhat nomadic life but managing to sustain herself. It was a lifestyle her sisters didn't understand, but I feel that she chose her life path because of the reasons she had to stay away. She was driven to constantly find a place to fit in since she couldn't return home. I LOVED this story! While I was upset at the way her sisters treated her so poorly when she returned and not having confidence that she would pull through for Ari and for the inn, it was heart-warming to see her sisters' views of her change. Kennedy finally felt accepted by her family. I wasn't expecting Kennedy and Xander to get back together so quickly. But, it surely made sense knowing that they both never stopped loving the other. It makes one believe in second chances. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
  • Great romance with intrigue

    I was swept away into this story of an amazing young woman who sets aside her adventurous life abroad to return home when her adoptive mother dies, and her sisters need her help. An intriguing story unfolds as her mysterious departure ten years before complicates her homecoming for the loved ones she left behind. The characters are beautifully developed with vibrant & distinct personalities, pulling the reader into their midst. Her first & only love has never gotten over her & she’s just as passionately in love with him, but she has a lot of explaining to do before they can embrace a life together. I really enjoyed spending time in Eden Ridge, and with the family from the Misfit Inn, and will definitely look for more stories in this series!
  • Great read!

    What a great addition and follow up to “Snowed in With the Ranger”! Honestly, I was one of those people who secretly wanted a longer story, so I was grateful when the masses requested it. I loved the build-up between Ivy and Harrison and loved the behind the scenes on his end to make the story even broader. The chemistry remains, but the story evolves into a full length romance. I would recommend this read on a snowy day… or a day you wish it was cold outside! Disclosure: I have received a copy of this book from the author and have chosen to review it with my honest opinion.

    ARC for honest review with no compensation and what a way to start a new series, Kait Nolan! ! ! When You Got a Good Thing is about two young friends/lovers who end up star crossed at age 18 and now 10 years later meet up again at a funeral… Kennedy Reynolds has been on the “run” for the last 10 years, thru no fault of her own but the rest of her family do not know the “real reason” she left all those years ago. She has traveled all over the world and is living in Ireland doing a blog of her travels. She has always felt she was missing something but could never put her finger on what it was…..until she receives word that her “adopted” mother has passed away and she needs to return home to help her other “adopted sisters” but can she stay in the town permanently, move forward from what happened in the past and make things right with Xander??? (Mom was a foster parent who adopted four girls and was in the process of adopting another girl when she passed). Xander, who never left the town other than to go to college and return back to town to work in law enforcement is still angry at Kennedy after all these years but now that she has come back for the funeral he is determined to get his answers so he can move on with his life once and for all. When he sees her again the old feelings return but he tries to push them away….. As Xander and Kennedy try to work through the past and move on she also has to figure out how to make up with her sisters who still think she is a screw up with no formal education and meet the new sister who is having problems coming to grips with the death of her “foster mom” and worrying about what will happen to her now that she was never formally adopted….. So many sub plots in this story but they flow together to make you understand the working of the foster home known to them as the Misfit Inn that they grew up in, how each sister became who she is as an adult. how they will do anything to make a life for the young sister who was never fully adopted and for Kennedy to finally find out the “real truth” behind what happened 10 years ago and whether she and Xander can put the past behind and have a life together???? Once you start the book it grabs you in and you may need some tissues, but you will not be able to put it down until the very last word…..it is that good! ! !

    I loved this book! It was well written and had an adorable storyline with complex characters and a strong setting. I loved the tension between Kennedy and Xander and the way their relationship unfolded. It was complicated enough to keep me wanting to learn more and I couldn't put it down! I received an ARC of this from the author but the opinions in this review are my own.
