In Firefly Valley by Amanda Cabot

About the Book
Marisa St. George is devastated when she is a victim of downsizing and has no choice but to return to the small Texas town where she grew up. Though it's a giant step backward, she accepts a position as business manager at the struggling Rainbow's End resort. The only silver lining is Blake Kendall, a new guest who is making her believe in love at first sight. But will her dreams of happily-ever-after be turned upside down when she discovers who he really is?

Romance readers will love this warm and witty story of mistaken identity and second chances from bestselling author Amanda Cabot.

My Thoughts
This author has always been a little hit or miss as to whether or not I enjoy her books and sadly this one was a bit of a miss.
The biggest problem for me was that I just didn't really like Marisa at all. Her character rubbed me the wrong way from the start and that didn't change much over the course of the book. I especially didn't enjoy the way that she overreacted when she discovered Blake's secret and the way she harbored bitterness toward her father. Blake on the other hand was a great character. I liked how he threw himself into the small town life, willing to help out whenever needed. I was also impressed by the way he fought for Marisa even after she freaked out at him.
It was fun to once again visit with all the other interesting characters and I loved watching Lauren find happiness and seeing how Greg and Kate's relationship was going.

And while I didn't love this book it was still enjoyable and I'm sure that others will love it!
