Because of the size of the book, this review won’t be long.

The New Haven annual fishing tournament draws professional an amateur anglers alike to win the money reward, and this year Ross Springer is determined to win the top prize. He needs the money to leave a lasting impression at Bethel College. He had no idea that the scheme would hook Abigail Cushman, the girl who reminds him of all he had and lost every time she looks his way.

Abigail may not know the difference between a bass and a trout but she’s a fast learner and determined to get a win over Ross. The guy she’s been trying to figure out ever since their tragic end years ago.

Will they be able to put aside their differences and fun each other again? Will love spring from tackle and bait or will both be hurt again?

This book is pretty much what you’d expect from a novella. It’s a really short story that rushes along the romance and storyline. It kind of leaves the reader feeling unfulfilled by the end of the story. This book wasn’t any different.

This story was a quick read. I finished it in two hours and I felt that this book can’t really hold its own. Compared to the Love Inspired novellas this book is a weak light weight. But then again, I don’t think this book was made to have much weight to it. I think it was supposed to be just a fun fast read.

This book was well written in concepts and descriptions, but I felt that the book was a tad bit choppy and off topic at times. Due to the novella factor, character development was scant and on a need to know basis. Leaving a few gaps in the story.

Overall, a fast read, but not one that leaves a lasting impression. Perfect for someone looking for a book to read on the bus or on a long car ride. I give this book a two out of five.

I received this complimentary galley from the publisher and net galley for this review. All opinion expressed are my own.
