Review: Righting a Wrong
Righting a Wrong by Rachael Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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 has had a heart attack and 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.
I liked this short novella by Rachel Anderson. It's a clean sweet story about a boy and girl who were best friends in high school until they kiss. With everything else going on in her life, the kiss scares Cambri into fleeing town without saying goodbye or ever contacting Jace again. Now she's back in town to take care of her father and she has to deal with the consequences of her actions.
Jace has never left town and has been quite content to take over his dad's hardware store. When the two meet again, feelings are rekindled but amends have to be made first and trust has to be built again. I liked that Cambri was willing to apologize to Jace and explain what happened and that Jace was willing to listen.
Cambri's relationship with her dad is pretty rough. He's really gruff with her and he doesn't show her much love or encouragement. He's never been able to figure out how to handle his feelings after the death of his wife (Cambri's mother). But they do seem make some headway on their relationship by the end of the book.
