THE BEST KIND OF LOVE by KERRI CARPENTER --> BLOG TOUR

The Best Kind of Love Synopsis:
After twelve years away, organized consultant, Penelope Walker, doesn’t expect to return to Blue Lake, Virginia. But when her parents unexpectedly die, she returns to her hometown and finds out that general contractor and former love of her life, Ethan Callahan, is back too. Their relationship transcended the typical high school romance and his mere presence is enough to have all those feelings of passion return full force. Only she can’t forget that Ethan didn’t show up for their secret elopement and left her brokenhearted.
It doesn’t take long for Ethan to realize he wants Penelope back, but he knows she won’t let go of the past that easily. When she finds out what her parents asked him to do all those years ago, she’ll never let him back into her life. Even though he did all of it for her.
Penelope’s determined to unravel the mystery of their shared pasts, while Ethan wants nothing more than to move on to their future. If these two former lovers can learn to forgive and forget, will they be able to remember that they had the best kind of love?

Kerri Carpenter Bio:
Kerri Carpenter began writing in her grandmother’s kitchen at the age of seven in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. A life-long fan of reading, she got lost in the worlds of The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. She also assumed that everyone had characters and plots forming in their heads at all times.
Once she turned to romance novels, she couldn’t get enough of books with happy endings, so she started writing her own. Now, Kerri writes contemporary romances, usually set in small towns. She enjoys reading, cooking, watching movies, taking Zumba classes, rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams, and anything sparkly. Kerri lives in Northern Virginia with her adorable (and mischievous) poodle mix, Harry.

My Review:

After being away from Blue Lake, Virginia, Penelope returns. She has lost her job and her parents, both in one day. As it is she likes lists and having all her ducks in a row. Upon her return, she sees Ethan Callahan, her high school lover who left her brokenhearted.

Ethan, who is now her neighbor, has been keeping a secret and only hopes that it won’t totally destroy a second chance with Pen. Ethan has had to make some very difficult decisions. Will Pen be able to see how the secrets unfold and forgive Ethan or her parents, for that matter?

Can Ethan and Pen make it work and find their HEA? Can Pen put the past behind her?

This book was well written and enjoyable. I couldn’t help but love Ethan and I rather enjoyed the relationship the four sisters had and the role they played.

4.5 stars
