More Than a Memory (Cottage Grove, #1)


Disappearing without a word, Eden Richardt fled from her naïve former life in Oregon to start anew in the Midwest. Being a morning radio show host, she’s got a lot going for her except finding someone to share her life with. In that aspect, no one seemed to compare to the one. Having absolutely no desire to step foot back in her hometown of Cottage Grove, her decision was swayed with an invitation to her high school reunion and solidified after receiving a letter from her first and only love from her past.

Living his life the best way he knows how, Baylor Jenkins spends his time running the family plumbing business, after giving up his dream to be an Architect, and raising his almost teenage daughter solely without the help of his ex-wife. In the back of his mind he knows something was missing from his otherwise enjoyable life. But that something was actually a someone who disappeared after graduation; a former best friend turned lover.

Locking eyes after fifteen long years raises deep emotions and unanswered questions:

What happened to make Eden run?

Could their love for each other still exist?

Or will their past time together be nothing more than a memory?

angies review


I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Ohhhhh 2nd chance romance…so sweet.  I am really draw to those stores because doesn’t every one wonder at one point in their life about a lost love????

Eden loved her best friend Baylor for as long as she can remember.  Too bad he never saw her that way.  Or did he?  On graduation night when love is on the cusp for our characters, Eden runs away??  WHAT!!  It takes 15 years for her to return and face the past that she left all those years ago.

Eden is bound to face her past and see why it took Baylor 15 years to email her.  Baylor is stunned stupid when he sees the love of his life but can’t believe she actually came to the school reunion.  Dean, the couples last partner or third of the musketeers, is there to help the couple navigate through everything to find a way back to the other.  When the reason for the big miscommunication is revealed…smh…someone was gonna get a big old throat punch for causing drama.

When Eden and Baylor rebound from the past and look to the future they are both scared to question it.  She has to go home to Tennessee and he has to stay in Oregon.  Again our couple is so scared that they don’t talk and so again heart ache happens but this time Baylor will not give up without a fight.

I am so freaking excited for book 2 because Dean will killing me in this book.  He is so sweet and he loved Eden just as much as Baylor.  I want him to find his true love and I guarantee a certain bestie hairdresser will give him a good run for his money!!!
