"A charming portrait of the Smokies, their people, and a wonderful way of life." --Deborah Smith, New York Times bestselling author

In a heartwarming novel set amid the lush splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains, Lin Stepp reunites two kindred spirits in a charming story of first love and surprising second chances. . .

See ya later--and love you forever, Rhea Dean. Those are the words Rhea's childhood sweetheart, Carter Layman, used to say whenever they parted. Not that she places much stock in words anymore. After all, Carter drove off to college in California, promising to make a fortune to help save their families' vacation resort. Instead he stayed there and married someone else. It fell to Rhea to keep Laurel Springs going and she's done just that, working long hours on the camp grounds, buoyed by the beauty of her Smokies home.

Now a widower with a young son, Carter has achieved huge success as a games developer. But he always planned to return to the spring-fed lake and the soaring mountains, to the covered bridge where he and Rhea made wishes and traded kisses. He's coming home to turn Laurel Springs into the place they planned to build together. And as he reveals the truth about his past, Rhea must decide whether to trust in the man--and the dreams--she's never forgotten.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet small town romance A very sweet, small town romance that had me escaping to a very peaceful place and gave me a renewed view on second chances. Rhea Dean and Carter Layman were teenage sweethearts. They experienced many firsts together. The plan was always that they would go to college in California together, but when they time to leave came, Rhea felt the pull to stay in Laurel Springs to help her family run their business and care for her Dad. Though she promised to meet him Rhea never left and Carter never returned. Until now. After the death of his wife, Carter is back in Laurel Springs and is determined to get back the one woman he has always loved. This one is well written with wonderful descriptive qualities. The plot may be one we've all read before with a slight twist, but that doesn't take away from the sweetness of the story. I definitely recommend this one.
