Gabriella Rodriguez left her small hometown for college eight years ago, excited for life in the city. Now, the shine of the city has worn off, and she no longer craves its fast pace, which made the decision to move home when her mom became ill an easy one. On the outside, it looked like Gaby only came home to help. She’s about to find that moving back to the small town of Harmony, Texas, might help her.
Bradley Klein has loved only one girl since he was two. No matter how many girls he dated or women he slept with over the years, not one has measured up to his childhood friend. Her long hair, blue eyes, and bright smile captivate him. When his bad boy lifestyle grew old, he landed back home in Harmony, working with his dad and opening his own business.
Now that Gaby is living in Harmony, will she give Brad the chance he has been waiting for and find that home can offer the inner happiness she’s seeking?
Welcome to the Finding Happiness in Harmony series’ second journey celebrating the bonds of friendship, love, and life. This feel-good story of childhood friends turning lovers and best girl friends will make you believe you too can find your home ever after.
We return to small town Harmony with the second book in this series.
Gaby has moved home to care for her mother following a cancer diagnosis and is feeling lost in the small town. Job opportunities are not plentiful which means she needs to create her path and find her own way. Returning to her love of dance, it opens up her creative side and she starts to find her place and feel at home again.
Brad has been in love with Gaby for as long as he can remember. He hasn't always shown it and has been in fact a jerk towards her at times. Brad has also returned home and splits his time between his own business and helping at his father's garage. Now that Gaby is back in town he sees a chance to make his move on Gaby but she is not easily won over. There is a dark cloud from her past that is about to cast shadows over her present.
It is obvious from their first encounter that Gaby and Brad belong together. They complement each other and support each other with their hopes and dreams but events from her past make her cautious about opening up her heart again.
I also loved the friendship between Gaby, Chloe and Jess - despite the long distance element. The power of friendship is strong between them and they are always there for the highs and the lows of each other's lives. I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to continuing with the next instalment of this series.
