A Kiss to Build A Dream On by Kim Amos

Twelve years ago, beautiful, blond, wealthy Willa Masterson left White Pine, tires squealing, for New York City, without looking back.  Since then, she's enjoyed everything New York has to offer a girl with unlimited resources. But the recent discovery that her boyfriend has squandered her inheritance in a Ponzi scheme sends Willa back to White Pine, to the only asset she has left: her childhood home, which she plans to turn into a high-end B&B.  

Enter Burk Olmstead, the best contractor in town-and Willa's high school boyfriend, whom she left high and dry when she moved away.  Hard-working, hard-bodied Burk, who has been taking care of Willa's childhood home for years, also has plans for the beautiful old house-plans that conflict with Willa's B&B.  When these two argue, sparks fly and reignite the fire that's always been between them...but it may take the whole town of White Pine to get these two lovers back together for good.

Okay, so I'm going to dive right in and start by talking about the characters. Willa certainly got screwed over but I have to say I didn't have a whole lot of sympathy for her until I got farther into the book and could see how she was trying to change or make up for her past. She certainly came across as the spoiled rich witch at first and I'm glad that I stuck with her and saw her grow throughout the book. And that applies to Burk as well. Except he obviously wasn't the rich witch. But he did have his flaws and it took me a bit to warm up to him. Although I did so more quickly than with Willa.

A Kiss to Build  A Dream On was a nice slow-down from the romantic suspense I've been reading lately and it was something different from what I'd been reading recently. I did really enjoy how things were happening but it wasn't at a crazy pace or things blowing up or whatnot. It was a nice break from that all.

It certainly was a fun ride, although at times it was a difficult one. I did enjoy the writing style and there weren't any errors or at least not glaringly obvious ones. Why not give this book a chance?
