SUMMARY × MZINES.CO.UK ¹ Catherine Lanigan

His homecoming is bittersweetfor both of them Café owner Maddie Strong is finally ready to take her burgeoning cupcake business to the next level With the help of handsome businessman Alex Perkins her future's all. Nate Barzonni returns home after a long absence and what greets him upon his arrival His first love Maddie Strong in a wedding dress Talk about a figurative gut punch and a literal one may not be far behind He deserves it For her part Maddie is finally on the cusp of her dreams Dreams that have evolved and matured over the 11 years since she last saw or heard from Nate Barzonni A new relationship a new life and then Nate returns Nate has one dream Maddie has another And just when they re finally given a chance at each other again they re also given those dreams dreams that don t mesh well Clearly this dynamic creates palpable tension between the two high school sweethearts not only romantic tension that kiss is a doozy but also the tension of what could have been and the tension of what could be Lanigan does a good job of balancing this tension with lighter moments while always keeping the tug of war between their hearts desires at the forefront of the story Mrs Beabots is a delight in the earlier books just as she is later in the series and it was fun to see Sophie from a slightly different perspective I will confess though that I wasn t a fan of the love triangle between Nate Maddie and Alex particularly because it felt like Maddie was trying to have her cake and eat it too Considering that she owns a cupcake cafe I probably should have seen that one comingBottom Line Heart s Desire reminds me all over again why I love Indian Lake and its characters The small town is welcoming and uaint with its own personality and atmosphere At the same time it s close enough to Chicago to allow for a nice blending of the big city with the small town life Through Nate and Maddie s story Lanigan explores our hearts desires the way they evolve over time and the way they sometimes take a direction we weren t anticipating Every reader will be able to relate on this level to these characters and in the meantime they are treated to a sweet romance and a not sure how this is going to turn out plot I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this bookfirst seen at Reading Is My SuperPower
