“Small towns have big stories.” That was a lesson Katie’s father taught her years ago. A lesson she’s taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story. Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.

Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn’t interested in telling stories—especially not to a big-city girl who can’t seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle’s world, doing everything but writing.

When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.

MY THOUGHTS
"Small towns have big stories." Wise words from Katie's father couldn't have been more true as she follows it and finds herself in Bishopville in search of the perfect inspiration for her next story. What she didn't know is that she would be finding another thing entirely. Would she open her heart to the possibility?

From the way it's written, the author definitely described the place and the stories of Katie and Kyle. I love how simple it is and yet the depth of the feelings as well as how they shared a mutual bond over the dogs that was Katie's purpose in the first place. The progression of their relationship as they open up to each other gives the story a well-rounded approach to a sweet romance.
