The USA Today bestselling author of Something to Prove presents a charming novella set in the small Alabama waterfront town of Magnolia Beach, where new love is challenged by long-buried secrets...
Even though her family moved away in disgrace after her father’s affair, Sophie Cooper knows that her childhood home in Magnolia Beach is the right place to open her bed and breakfast on the water—especially if it means she can watch the handsome local walk his dog on the beach every morning...
Quinn Haslett’s greatest regret has always been exposing the affair between Sophie Cooper’s father and their high school physics teacher—not that she ever knew who spilled the beans. When he sees Sophie again, the guilt comes rushing back, but it doesn’t stop him from wanting to see if the sparks flying between them could lead to something more.
But with such a big secret lying in wait, it’s only a matter of time before their newly ignited relationship goes up in smoke...

I'm a big fan of Kimberly Lang and was excited to get a chance to read One Little Thing early. I love the town of Magnolia Beach, as it reminds me of my very own hometown. I love romances that take place in small towns, and Kimberly Lang did a great job with Magnolia Beach.
Sophie Cooper has returned to her hometown to open a B&B years after leaving town with her family. I loved that she named the B&B "The Old Palmer Place", as in a small town no matter who owns a house currently, it will always be known by the original owners. I have to give Sophie props for coming home, even after so many years. Small town scandals are never forgotten. Sophie is such a strong character; I knew she could weather any storm that came her way.
I love that Quinn Haslett was a geek when he was in high school and how is the buff guy Sophie has been watching play with his dog each morning. There is just something about the geeky guy from high school turning into a hot guy that I love so much. Add in the instant chemistry between Quinn and Sophie when they meet again, and I was hooked.
I found One Little Thing to be both a sweet and sexy romance. As it is a novella length story, it was a very fast and enjoyable read for me. I can't wait to visit Magnolia Beach again soon.
