From the USA TODAY bestselling author of On the Corner of Love and Hate comes a romantic comedy about a woman who grudgingly returns home to small-town Pennsylvania, only to find herself falling in love—not only with the town, but with two of its citizens.
Charlotte Bishop is out of options in New York City. Fired, broke, and blacklisted by her former boss, she’s forced to return to her hometown of Hope Lake, PA to lick her wounds. Although she’s expecting to find a miserable place with nothing to do, she is pleasantly surprised to discover it is bustling and thriving.
She’s only supposed to be in Hope Lake temporarily until she can earn enough money to move back to New York. She’s not supposed to reconnect with her childhood friends or her beloved grandmother. She’s not supposed to find her dream job running the local florist shop. And she’s definitely not supposed to fall for not one but two of Hope Lake’s golden boys: one the beloved high school English teacher, the other the charming town doctor.
With a heart torn between two men and two cities, what’s a girl to do?
Meet Me on Love Lane is the second book in the Hopeless Romantics Series, but can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel. When Charlotte falls down on her luck, she finds herself returning home to Hope Lake. She hasn’t been home for a very long time and is about to find out that a lot of things have changed since she’s been away. Her hometown is nothing like she remembers. It’s thriving and filled with people and hope. And while Charlotte’s return home is supposed to only be temporary, she’s quickly finding reasons to stay. Her heart is torn between two men and two cities. To find out which guy and city wins Charlotte’s heart, you’re going to have to pick up Meet Me on Love Lane to find out…
I’m going to be totally honest with you and say that when I picked up this book, I wasn’t sure what I was going to be getting myself into. I had kind of a love/hate relationship with the first book, but couldn’t resist giving Meet Me on Love Lane a chance. And let me tell you, I’m so glad I did. This story totally won me over and gave me all the feels.
Meet Me on Love Lane grabbed me from the very first page and had me super excited to dive into Charlotte’s story. I wanted to know why she left town and never returned before now. I wanted to know why she didn’t remember a lot of her past and couldn’t wait to find out the answers. Now, usually I’m not a huge fan of love triangles, and this one has one, but it’s well done and not over the top in any way. Charlotte finds herself torn between two different men, but I knew right away who was going to be the one to win over her heart.
Meet Me on Love Lane was well written and entertaining. It was a sweet second chance romance filled with hope and the message that you can always return home. Overall, this was a pretty quick read for me and I enjoyed every single second of it. Meet Me on Love Lane totally won me over and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the next book in this series!
