Review: Grounded for Love by Rebecca Talley

Grounded for Love: A Reunion Romance Novella by Rebecca Talley
115 pages, April 2015,  DuBon Publishing 
Source: I won a copy on the LDS Book Trek and this is my honest opinion
My Rating: 4 Stars
After being burned by her college boyfriend, Graham, book editor Serena Johnson believes the only dependable men are the ones found between the pages of a book. Her life in San Francisco is thrown into chaos when her father suffers a heart attack, and she books a flight to her small hometown in Colorado.

Graham McAllister, now a civil engineer in Phoenix, is dating a woman who has it all—except his heart. As the best man for his brother’s wedding, Graham must fly back to Grand Junction in time for all the festivities.

When a massive snowstorm grounds all the planes in Denver, both Serena and Graham are stranded overnight. Will this storm lead to love or will it simply prove that there are no second chances? 

My Review:
There is so much emotion, misunderstanding, and love is packed into this little novella. I'm all about a good reunion romance and I really enjoyed this one.

Serena and Graham were college sweethearts, until Graham makes a serious mistake, which leads to a major misunderstanding. Three years later, they run into each other at the airport, both heading home for different reasons. Internal struggles result from that snowed in meeting and I loved the way both characters wrestled with thoughts and feelings, while remaining likeable and not annoying. Honest mistakes happen and it's only human to jump to conclusions sometimes, but when fate comes around with a second chance, you have to act.
I would have loved an epilogue because I have an inquiring mind and I'm curious about what happened next, but it was still a fun, romantic story.
