The Finders Keepers Library by Annie Rains. In this story we follow the characters over a  summer ina  small town in North Carolina. 

We have 3 PoV's, Savannah, Evan also the romantic couple in the story, and Eleanor Savannah's aunt and Evan's neighbour. Savannah and Evan are childhood friends from her spending  summers with Aunt Eleanor. Now in her 20s, having had difficult medical diagnosis Savannah returns to Eleanor's for the Summer after a decade. While coming to terms with her diagnosis, her aunt's frail health, unresolved feelings for Evan which are still strong, Savannah's mind and life are in a spin. Will she find peace and happiness like the town residents find respite via the books in her Aunt's garden Library? That's the crux of this story. 

What I liked about the story -

  • The community spirit and Eleanor's role in it, bringing people together and giving them a safe place via books and her garden Library named Finder's Keepers Library. 
  • The friendships all 3 characters have with the town's people separately, that of Eleanor and Charlie, Savannah and Mallory, June and the adults who help her adjust to a new place. It was heartwarming to read about.

If you are in a mood for some small town friendships, people navigating through relationships when they get difficult, some inspiring nature and garden work, do pick up a copy.

This heart-warming second chance love story about hope and healing from USA Today bestselling author Annie Rains is perfect for fans of Raeanne Thayne and Jenny Hale!

For a gardener blessed with a green thumb, Savannah Collins’s life sure seems like it’s all thorns, zero roses. She has no job, no relationship, and no place to live. With nothing but a car full of plants and her new rescue kitten, Savannah heads to Bloom, North Carolina, to spend the summer with her beloved Aunt Eleanor, a retired librarian.

Her aunt shares her love of literature with the Finders Keepers Library, located in her beautiful garden, where anyone can stop by to pick a book or leave a book. When a sudden summer storm destroys the library and many of the roses, it will take a village to get everything ready for the garden wedding that is planned there in just three weeks.

As the entire town joins in to make the necessary repairs, Savannah bonds with their neighbor Evan Sanders over the books that Eleanor has handpicked for each of them, helping them both find healing and self-discovery. Savannah only intends to stay through the summer, but when an unexpected job offer, a sudden health crisis, and a wayward pre-teen push her future in new directions, she has to wonder whether this is the place that she is meant to be—and the family she’s meant to be with.
