Two old rivals. One dream job. And a summer they’ll never forget.
Freya Johanssen needs a fresh start. A recently heartbroken and newly-qualified veterinarian, she will take any job that gets her away from Seattle—for now. Her plan is to spend two years in the small town of Whisper Falls, and then head back to the city and civilisation.
And then Trent Crossley shows up, and her carefully laid plans are blown to pieces. He’s the last person she expected—or wanted—ever to see again. This is the guy who thinks he’s God’s gift to women; who breezed through vet school without studying and who betrayed her in a way she’ll never forgive. She thinks he’s an arrogant party boy; he thinks she’s an uptight perfectionist. Now he’s in her clinic, and the fluttering in her stomach must mean she’s still mad at him.
It seems they have both been hired for the same job—and now neither is backing down. But as Freya works to outdo Trent at every turn, she starts to see a different side to the man she thought she knew. Falling in love was never part of her plan. And if she wants the new beginning she’s worked so hard for, can she afford to give away her heart?
A totally unputdownable feel-good read about finding yourself, and love, in the most unexpected places. Fans of Virgin River, Debbie Macomber, Jill Shalvis and Carolyn Brown will love Find Me at Whisper Falls.

Freya Johanssen is more than pleased to be starting over. Heartbreak may have set her back a few paces, but as she is about to take on her first job as a veterinarian, she feels that things are definitely looking up. From the outset, however, Freya learns that she is not the only one reaching out for the job, a job that promises a two-year contract. However, it seems that Trent Crossley is also after the job. What is more is that he is determined to take it, not really caring what happens to Freya.
Freya and Trent are not strangers to one another. In fact, they went to vet school together and all Freya can think about is the way Trent once betrayed her. Oil and water, Freya and Trent could not be more different, but one thing that they do have in common is the fact that they both want the job. Considering the contract is for one vet, it appears that only one of them will get it.
The pair develop a temporary plan to work together and one thing becomes apparent - they are developing feelings for one another and this is something neither one of them ever expected. Can they both jumpstart their careers without allowing emotion to derail their impending futures?
In this sweet story by Ellyn Oaksmith it was a pleasure watching Freya and Trent find their way to love and a happy future together. Ellyn Oaksmith has cleverly written a warm and exceptional enemies to lovers story that was filled with wonderful primary and secondary characters.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
