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.
Book One: Home Matters - Review
Book Two: Silver Linings - Review

At the end of book two we feel like Jace really got the short end of the stick.  He seems to have lost everything, but maybe that's what it takes to set him up for his own happily ever after when his past comes back to town.  Cambri had left long ago (without saying goodbye) and never really looked back.  When her crotchety old father has a heart attack she finally comes home to take care of him.

Cambri's father was a great character.  He was ornery, grumpy, stubborn, and hard headed.  But I loved him.  He becomes a big catalyst for some of my favorite scenes.  In such a small town Cambri was bound to run into her old best friend, Jace, and that is where the romance begins.

Both Cambri and Jace are dealing with broken hearts and broken dreams.  Their story starts off small and simple but grows quickly and you realize just how perfect they are for each other.  Now they just need to try and get over the past and try to move on.  Unlike some books that can repeatedly smash you in the face with their problems, Righting a Wrong was much more subtle and gentle.  It made the special moments that much more touching and memorable.  I love the history brought up in this novella - both with the characters and the town.  It sort of makes me wish I had the small town history and relationships that the book shows.

This can be read as a stand alone, but you will miss out on the "ripple effect" of events that these amazing novellas are showing.  I love how one couldn't have happened without the one before it.

This excerpt from Righting a Wrong shows a little of Cambri and her father's great dialog and personalities:

Her father eyed her hand with disdain. “I feel fine. I don’t need a bunch of medication to mess that all up.”

“No medication, no breakfast.” Cambri wriggled her palm.

“What’s for breakfast?”

Her eyebrow lifted. “I can tell you it’s not the fatted calf.” Although he harrumphed, a twinkle of humor appeared. “I almost forgot how cheeky you could be.”

“And I almost forgot how ornery you could be.”

He rolled his eyes, but grudgingly accepted the pills, swallowing them with a sip of water. Then he settled back against his pillow. “I always have sausage, eggs, and hash browns on Saturdays.”

“Believe it or not, I remember.” Cambri retrieved a breakfast tray from the kitchen and set it on his lap, mentally preparing herself for what would come.

“What’s that supposed to be?” Her father stared at the food in disgust.

“Oatmeal, whole wheat toast, and freshly squeezed OJ,” said Cambri smoothly. “Try it. You might like it.”

“Why isn’t there butter on this toast? Where’s my sausage and hash browns?”

“Your heart doesn’t want bacon and hash browns. It wants oatmeal.”
