When she hears that the small town of Heritage, Michigan, is looking for a new librarian, Libby Kingsley jumps at the opportunity. Little did she know the library is barely more than a storage closet stuffed with dusty, outdated books. What the community really needs is a new building. But the only funds available are those being channeled into the new town square, and the landscape architect in charge of the project wants nothing to do with her plans.
All Austin Williams wants to do is get the town square project finished so he can do right by the family business and then extricate himself from the town that reveres the brother who cost him so much. But the local media and the town’s new librarian seem to be conspiring against him at every turn. Will the determined bookworm find her way into his blueprints–and possibly even his heart?
Novelist Tari Faris invites you back to the small town with a big heart in this second book in the Restoring Heritage series.
Until I Met You by Tari Faris is a wonderful second installment to this beautiful series. The tale is full of heart and woe. Trouble is headed for the protagonists. They bump heads but despite that they’re this spark that pulls them together. The hero’s family is like any other family. There’s a heavy he’s carrying due to circumstances and is feeling the pressure. However, he does manage to hold it together. The small-town and the heroine do not make things easy for him. She’s concerned for the library of the town and won’t give up until he budges a little bit. The cast were charming. The scenes and dialogue were engaging. I felt right at home with this book. I loved that the heroine was a bookworm. Overall, this novel was heartfelt and well-written. I cannot wait to read the next adventure.
