Guest Book Review: Jenny Hale - Love Me for Me

Reviewed by Tanya Phillips

Sometimes you find perfect where you least expect it… 

Libby Potter has just lost the perfect job, the perfect apartment and the perfect boyfriend. Moving back to the home town that she couldn’t wait to escape when she was younger was definitely not on her to-do list. Especially as it means running into the man whose heart she broke when she left. 

Pete Bennett can still make Libby’s world stop with just the sound of his voice – even ten years on. Only now, she is the last person in the world that he wants to see. 

As everyone else welcomes Libby home with open arms, she realizes she’s missed that special closeness that comes from lifelong friendship. And, as Libby seeks to make amends with Pete, she begins to wonder whether she made the right choice in leaving all those years ago. 

When an amazing career opportunity gives her the chance to leave again, Libby will have to decide what her version of perfect is… and where she really belongs. 

Amazon links: Kindle or Paperback  

Libby Potter finds herself back in her old home town against her real wishes of being in New York with her now ex fiancé Wade and doing the high profile job that she loved.  After losing her perfect job, perfect fiancé and perfect apartment Libby finds herself back in the small town that she hadn't visited since she left leaving her old friends on a bad note. 

She now finds herself doing up the house that her and Wade bought as an investment.  Worse still it happens to be the house of the grandparents of her first true love Pete Bennet and so it holds many memories.  When she finally comes face to face with him for the first time after telling she was leaving she struggles to communicate with him.

Will she leave the town and go back to New York and another job?  Does she finish the house?  Does she rekindle any of her old friendships or even relationship with her mother for whom she always strived to please. 

The book has some lovely characters and various little stories running through it.  You cannot but help like the characters and fall in love with the setting.  I really enjoyed this book and hence read it very quickly.  I will certainly look out for more novels by the author.  A lovely warming read that I recommend and also an easy read.

I'd like to thank Kim at Bookouture for sending me a copy of this eBook and Tanya for reviewing it.
