Summary

Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year of high school ended in a fiasco. But now her father needs help, and Cambri has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and heads home, hoping against hope that Jace Sutton is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs-in the past. If only life worked that way. 

Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she walked out of his life without a backward glance, he was left with no choice but to try to forget her and move on. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jace instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs. If only it were that easy.

    


My Review

In Righting a Wrong we get to find out what happens to Jace, who used to be the heroine's boyfriend in the last book. Jace is a down-to-earth, great guy. He's a little more reserved than some other heroes, but I really liked him. I also really felt for him and wanted him to get his happily-ever-after. I loved that I was able to sit down and read Righting a Wrong (and really each of the novellas in this series) and feel satisfied that I could read it in one sitting, delve deep into the story while doing it, and in the end be satisfied. It's just really nice to have that feeling and to know I'm going to find out what happens to the two MC's, but also be happy with the outcome. 

Cambri hasn't ever really moved on from Jace. They were the best of friends and she feels she ruined that. She doesn't get along with her dad (still doesn't really when she comes back) and so hasn't been back home for six years. Her dad definitely spices things up in this story. Him and Jace's grandfather really add a lot to this story. Cambri isn't even expecting for Jace to still be living in her hometown, but she finds out how wrong she was when she begins running into him everywhere. I really loved the dialogue between her and Jace! I loved that even though Jace has all these emotions, he keeps them inside and he challenges Cambri. There were some great moments between the two of them and several that were just flat-out hilarious and then some that were really sweet.

This was another great read for me from this series! I loved the characters, the dialogue, the plot, and, of course, the wonderful ending. It was sweet, funny, and romantic, and included some great characters. I would definitely recommend it to chick-lit lovers everywhere.

Now I can't wait to find out what happens to Jace's sister, Lydia, in the next novella in this series, Lost and Found. Join me again in two weeks to find out what I thought. :)

Excerpt

In Cambri’s life, mistakes were like boomerangs. She’d make them, regret them, and launch them as hard and far as she could to get away from them. Then suddenly, after she thought they were long gone, they would come sailing back to thunk her hard on the chest.

Like now.

Cambri could practically hear the figurative boomerang whooshing toward her as recognition dawned on Jace’s face—the kind of recognition that came when seeing someone from your past you’d rather not see.

“Hey, Jace,” was all she could come up with to say. She clutched the pruning shears, frantically trying to think of something more. “Long time no see.”

He glanced at the shears, and a few awkward seconds passed before he responded. “Yeah, long time.”

“I was just, uh . . .” Cambri brushed a few dried leaves off the shears and held them up—“trying these out. They’re sharper than I expected. I’ll take them.”

“Will you take the hose too, or was it the sprinkler head you were also trying out?”

  9. I love Rachael Anderson. I've read two of her other books and adored them both. I'll have to get this one!

  11. I really do need to pick up the first book in this series...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have read the first in the series, and I enjoyed it. I didn't love it like so many others did, but I am still interested in finishing up the series so this one is on my list, too!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Doesn't the title alone sound so fun?!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Very whimsical. I'm thinking there has got to be some humor in there besides the romance and suspense.

    ReplyDelete
  15. It does look and sound really fun. I'm really looking forward to reading it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wasn't it??!!! I really loved seeing that from start to finish.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes, I think you definitely would!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes. That is one big plus with these so far. Sometimes novellas feel really unfinished and that can really bother me. With these I have felt satisfied each time with where the story started and ended, although you really have to read them all in a row I think for it to be as satisfying. Like in the last book if I hadn't of known Jace was going to get a HEA ending in the next book I might have been more disappointed. They were really smart with this series.

  19. I really like her too! I think you'd definitely like these, but especially this one!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I really can't wait. I just noticed that B&N has the special edition, but I wouldn't get it on release day unless I paid extra or grabbed one at a physical store, which would also cost me more. I may end up with two copies and then give the regular copy away...

    ReplyDelete
  21. It just makes me happy thinking about reading it in two months! It felt like it was taking forever...well, it was, but now it's almost here!

    ReplyDelete
  22. 0.0 Um. YES!!! ;) Although, the second book is my favorite so far. The best new character EVER in Sturmhond!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So you haven't read the second book, Siege and Storm?? I actually liked that one better. It's just so very clever, emotional, dark, but also so very good.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I can't wait for this one either. After that ending…what is going to happen?? Great pick! ~Pam

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love darker stories. I was excited about the first book, but I was a little disappointed that I didn't go crazy over it like I thought I would. I haven't read Siege and Storm yet. Now, I am more than willing to give it a shot. I think, with just a little more SOMETHING, I will go crazy for this series!

    ReplyDelete
  26. One day I will actually start the series! I cannot wait, I have heard so many great things about it :).

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just need to get these! They all sounds so good, and I love the covers they are all so sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the cover, and I like you, hope to get to review it if/when it comes up for review!
