Hardcover: 368 pages
Publisher: William Morrow (October 18, 2016)

In this brand-new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a scandal brings a young man back home to the small town, crazy family, and first love he left behind.

Reed Stewart thought he’d left all his small town troubles including a broken heart behind when he ditched tiny Bloomville, Indiana, ten years ago to become rich and famous on the professional golf circuit.† Then one tiny post on the Internet causes all of those troubles to return . . . with a vengeance.

Becky Flowers has worked hard to build her successful senior relocation business, but she’s worked even harder to forget Reed Stewart ever existed. She has absolutely no intention of seeing him when he returns until his family hires her to save his parents.

Now Reed and Becky can’t avoid one another or the memories of that one fateful night.  And soon everything they thought they knew about themselves (and each other) has been turned upside down, and they and the entire town of Bloomville might never be the same, all because The Boy Is Back.

My Review:

I totally have to start out this review by saying I don’t read nearly enough of Meg Cabot.  This is my second book of her work that I’ve read and I loved everything about it.

Not only is this story full of funny, quirky, interesting characters and has a really great story line, but the format this book is written in is SO awesome! Maybe it’s because I spend my days in social media land and text my fingers off, but the way this book reads, with snippets from text convos, on-line messages, Facebook pages, and emails, had me glued to each page!

Onto the story itself, I have to say, I adore a good scandal and reunited old flame plot and this nails both of those.  The Stewart family has drama happening in spades and I ate it up with a spoon.

Overall this book was a fun read written in a fantastic format and again I have GOT to get more Meg Cabot on my book shelves!
