"Fern Brookbanks has wasted far too much of her adult life thinking about Will Baxter. She spent just twenty-four hours in her early twenties with the aggravatingly attractive, idealistic artist, a chance encounter that spiraled into a daylong adventure in the city. The timing was wrong, but their connection was undeniable: they shared every secret, every dream, and made a pact to meet one year later. Fern showed up. Will didn't. At thirty-two, Fern's life doesn't look at all how she once imagined it would. Instead of living in the city, Fern's back home, running her mother's lakeside resort--something she vowed never to do. The place is in disarray, her ex-boyfriend's the manager, and Fern doesn't know where to begin. She needs a plan--a lifeline. To her surprise, it comes in the form of Will, who arrives nine years too late, with a suitcase in tow and an offer to help on his lips. Will may be the only person who understands what Fern's going through. But how could she possibly trust this expensive-suit wearing mirage who seems nothing like the young man she met all those years ago. Will is hiding something, and Fern's not sure she wants to know what it is. But ten years ago, Will Baxter rescued Fern. Can she do the same for him?"--… (mais)

I'm not much of a romance reader but when this book was chosen for Canada Reads 2024 I thought I would give it a try. The defender said that romance fiction is the most read genre in the world but I don't think I'll be reading many more. Since this was the first book kicked off Canada Reads this year, I imagine the other defenders were similarily unimpressed.

It's the old story line: boy meets girl, they fall in love, they part, then they meet again later and are still in love. The only interesting part of this book was that the girl/woman inherits a vacation lodge in Ontario's lake country and she has to work hard to make it profitable again. The boy/man is now a financial consultant (he was an artist when they met) and was hired by the mom before she was killed in a car accident. It surprised the daughter when he showed up at the lodge a few weeks after her mom's death but nothing after that was really a surprise.

If you want a light, fluffy read then this is probably the book for you. Otherwise, don't waste your time. ( )

Predictable and trite. Lots of "I learned at 17...." but wait for 100 pages before you find out what happened at 17. Lots of misunderstandings that could have been resolved and questions that could have been answered easily, but weren't. Resolved by a previously unseen character arriving and explaining everything. Will has anxiety issues that he believes will escalate if he has children, but Fern is happily pregnant at the end of the novel. She'll raise the kids and take care of his mental health and she's happy because the sex is great and they've spent several week together. Need I say more? ( )

The premise of this book is weak. I gave it 2 stars. ( )

I genuinely disliked so much about this book.
I would have rathered Fern get together with Jamie, because he was really was a nice guy and knew her really well. Like Will heard all of her life story in one day, saw her on the dock and was like Oh no! Mental illness!! And then, he shows up again a decade later, talks to her mom behind her back, but because they want to sleep together, they can make it work.
And the one day they hung out and told each other so so much, she pretended to not have a boyfriend and was emotionally cheating, if not ready to physically cheat!! If someone were ready to cheat on their SO of multiple years with you, what makes you think they won't cheat on you?
Women are not rehabs for broken men. Her grief is so much lower key, but he's so broken, mentally ill, so depressed, hard knock life artist, and she's just gonna support him?? This isn't a mutually supportive relationship.
And most of their interest in each other is just about sleeping with each other.
And that's another thing, why do books act like because you enjoy sleeping together and you have no common interests except banging therefore you're a perfect couple?? You really think you're gonna be happily married at 63 because sex is fun??
And Will spends most of the book barely telling her anything! It takes his sister telling her most of his backstory and setting things up so Fern can make him tell her the rest of it, like Will and Fern weren't about to fight for each other.

They can go die in a hole. Give me back my time. ( )
