Starting Over (A Sweet Fall Romance)

STARTING OVER                                      Pamela Q. Fernandes

Cara Wallace is stunned to find Nathan Reynolds back in Henderson County. His sudden arrival brings to the fore unresolved questions of what might have been. 
How could she unwrite the past? 
How could she undo the mistakes? 
How could she unlove him?

Nathan Reynolds can't understand why Cara chose to stay in this small town. How could she sacrifice her career, her future and their love for a small run-down cottage in the middle of nowheresville? Whatever her reasons, Nathan intends to
find out and start over again

     For a short story, this had all the elements needed to make me connect with the characters. Not to mention make me cry.
     This is about a young couple that grew up in a small college community in North Carolina.  They were into two totally different things in life but still spoke the same language of the heart.  Nathan was into all things swimming.  But plans on going to Duke for business and finance.
     Where Cara, was totally into botany, the stars, and the theory of relativity.  She had planned to be a doctor.  But there were things beyond her control that changed the course of her life forever.  Would she have the main reason any other way, not at all?  But the death of a family of course.
     But Cara is a strong, hardworking, loving aunt, who would do anything for her niece, Brooke.  She is smart as a whip.  Wants to be a doctor when she grows up.  For now, however, she’ll settle for being one of the fastest swimmers on the team.
     When Cara applied a year ago for a landscaping job at the mansion that used to be hers and Nathan’s secret place.  Because it was so run down.  They made it their dream home for the future.  Anyway, now it came down to her and two other bids.  So, today she had to explain why her plan was the best.
     Upon arriving and the new interior and colors that would help with the floral colors to use are helpful.  She never sees the man standing in the corner of the room as they enter.  She is shocked speechless.  When she is introduced to him and his girlfriend she is further caught off guard.
     Especially, when he is angered by her presence.  Since he is the one that left her all those years ago because she chose to stay in this nowheresville town he was never coming back.  Now here he is standing looking angry at her after all she had to change to make everything work?  And not six months after he leaves her mom dies from MS and no call nothing.  Really?
     This is one emotionally charged little book.  The ending and how quickly they got back together was odd but for a short love story, it was perfect.  I do wish there was an epilogue though.
     I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by
