Publisher's Description

"Melissa Tagg follows up her debut novel with a stellar sophomore read. With her charming wit and engaging prose, Tagg pens a story of hope in God's dreams for us and ties it all together with sigh-worthy romance. Truly a book and author not to be missed."
~Rachel Hauck, award-winning, bestselling author of The Wedding Dress and Princess Ever After


After playing nomad for five years, Blake Hunziker has finally had enough of adventure. Not sure what reception he'll get from everyone back in Whisper Shore, he's stunned at not only a warm welcome from his hometown but also a job offer. The job is his if he can successfully pull off the annual Christmas Festival. If only he knew the first thing about coordinating events...

If there's one thing Autumn Kingsley knows, it's Whisper Shore. For years, she's been stuck running her family's inn when all she wants is to see the world. Now she has a visit scheduled from a potential investor who could take over the inn, as well as a dream job offer in Paris. But with just two weeks to whip the inn into shape, her chance at escape is a long shot.

The Hunzikers and the Kingsleys may not get along, but Blake knows Autumn's the only one who can help him. She agrees to a trade--she'll help with the Festival and he'll help with inn repairs. But what was meant to be a simple deal quickly becomes much more than that when the guy who's done running away joins forces with the girl who can't wait to leave.

    Here to Stay has such delightful characters, allowing the reader to fall in love with the wonderful personalities of Autumn, Blake, and many of their friends and families. There are themes of forgiveness, hope, and trust woven throughout the artfully told story. Humor and romance are sprinkled amongst a plot with good depth and engaging prose. Although the title itself may hint at a predictable ending, the book has enough creative storylines to keep it interesting. One small portion (Blakes relationship with the TV star) is a little bit confusing at first, but this may be better understood if the reader has also read Melissa Taggs Made to Last. Overall, the novel is sweet, enjoyable, and a recommended read!

    What happens when the prodigal, who comes home and is ready to settle down, and the girl, who has followed the rules and is ready to get out of town, fall in love? Autumn Kingsley has been trying to keep her familys inn afloat since her mother had gifted it to her on her birthday years ago. Blake Hunziker has arrived back in town after being gone for years and is ready to be part of the community he ran away from. His parents welcome him home and would like him to help his father with their hotel. With past circumstances and hurts crushing them both, Autumn and Blake strike up a partnership where he will help her fix up her inn for a very important investor and she will help him organize the Christmas festival for their dying little tourist town. As they begin to work together and ultimately rely upon each other, a forbidden romance develops between them. Their families have been feuding for years with their competing businesses and with other history between them, neither think they have a chance with each other. Not only that, but Autumn has a chance of a lifetime- to move to Paris and finally get to pursue her dreams. Are Autumn and Blakes dreams what they really want, or is there something bigger and better for them both? I really enjoyed this first read of mine by Melissa Tagg. I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.

    Melissa's book, Here to Stay, is her second novel and it tells the story of Blake Hunziker, who we first met in Made to Last. I was really looking forward to reading Blake's story, because I fell in love with his character in Made to Last--and this story did not disappoint!

    If you haven't picked up one of Melissa's books, I urge you to get one soon. Melissa has such a fun, spunky voice and her characters are so realistic and charming. The heroine in Here to Stay runs a historic inn, but her dream is to see the world. The hero has just come home from globe-trotting, and he wants to finally settle down and stay in one place. As their lives are brought together by a community event, we watch this unlikely pair fall in love. But how can either one give up their dream?

    I especially loved the setting for Here to Stay. It's a small, lakeside town called Whisper Shores. Melissa did a wonderful job bringing the community, and it's citizens, to life. By the end of the book, I felt like I was a member of the Whisper Shores community. Melissa's story is funny, yet poignant, and you will experience all the joys and sorrows along the way. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy a romantic comedy.

    This novel is light Christian romance all the way.

    Autumn is the owner of an old inn along the shore of Lake Michigan, having acquired it after her father died and her mother wanted nothing to do with it. But tourism is down and continual repairs has left Autumn in financial difficulty.

    Blake has just returned to his home town after being gone for years. He is still trying to deal with his past and his part in the death of his brother. His reception is mixed as some still hold him responsible for the tragedy.

    Autumn and Blake are unlikely friends as Blake's father owns a hotel, direct competition to Autumn's inn. The town is in need of promotional help, however, and Blake agrees to organize the last festival of the season if Autumn will help. It will be a struggle as the hostility between the families goes back a long time.

    The two work together and romance blossoms. Just when it looks like the two might get together, Autumn looses the inn and decided to take a job in Europe.

    This is a fun romance. It is the second in a series. I read it without having read the first one, Made to Last, and enjoyed it but felt I had missed much of the earlier character development. To obtain full enjoyment of this novel you should read the earlier one.

    The characters are well crafted. The plot is good. I did feel like the reconciliation of Blake with the people in the town was a bit fast and unrealistic, as was Autumn's change of heart near the end of the novel. This is romance, however, and romance often breaks the borders of sensible reality.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
