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 follows Made to Last by Melissa Tagg. But you do not need to read the first to enjoy the second book. Here to Stay is a contemporary romance with plenty of realistic everyday occurrences. The story follows Blake and Autumn and the decisions they need to make concerning their future, both individually and together. I hope Melissa has another one to follow in the works!

    I received the book from the Book CLub Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I became a fan of Melissa Tagg while reading her first book, Made to Last. Her writing style is fun and witty while also teaching lessons. This author has by far one of my favorites! Sometimes an author changes her style or something but this one is still great.

    If you have read the first book you will recognize Blake Hunziker as the phony husband of Miranda Woodruff. Blake, also known as Blaze, has been traveling around for years trying to escape the guilt and reminders of home. So when he finally decides to return, he is surprised when his parents welcome him with love. The heroine is Autumn Kingsley. When her father died her mother gave her the Kingsley Inn. Only problem is, Autumn didn't want the shackles of staying in Whisper Shores. She wants to travel and see the world, instead of being chained to a dying hotel.

    This novel is funny, entertaining and the author knows how to write her scenes. I felt pulled along with the story and didn't want to put it down. Blake has just the right amount of tenderness and vulnerability mixed in with that male cockiness. You gotta love a guy like that! His spirit with Lucy and Fletcher was just sweet!! And Autumn is so feisty and stubborn. I had to laugh over and over as I devoured this novel. I am soo waiting for the next one. Don't keep us in suspense too long Melissa!!!

    I received a copy of this book for my review purposes. All thoughts are 100% mine

    I love the characters. You do not want this couple to leave this town except for a vacation. They are this town. I received this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    Readers are going to enjoy the contrasting lessons two main characters represent in this tale, one is Blake and the other is Autumn. The place is Whisper Shores, Michigan, a small town that relies heavily on tourist seasons to run their respective lodging places. Blake and Autumns families have had a long standing feud that only grew in intensity when tragedy struck, inflicting pain in both families. Now Autumn is handed her families inn to run all on her own, but her heart yearns to travel to other countries and experience adventure. Blake isnt welcomed warmly when he returns after a long absence, but the man that returns is not the same man who left. Blake was sure God led him to return home, but after a while he isnt so certain.

    I really enjoyed this novel that so eloquently shows the contrasting nature that really resides in the human race. The characters, Autumn and Blake, are each dealing with issues of the heart that run deep and trying not to let the family feud dictate their actions. Autumn is a caring, compassionate and at times a strong-headed woman who wants to get the inn on solid financial footing before she goes to fulfill her lifelong dream of working in France. She believes God has brought a gentleman from France to buy her inn where she can leave the daily managing to others. Blake is wrought with grief and guilt over losing his brother years earlier. Once he relished the nickname Blaze for it accurately described his wild and daring adventures, now it only seems to hammer blame into his heart.

    When I finished reading, I thought how well the author portrayed our nature to quickly judge, bringing further hurt to others. There is also the way the characters in love are finding their way to love enough to let go and in the interim each finds that it isnt the adventure that fulfills them, but the sharing of it with another. The novel is filled with adventure, romance, laughter, faith and more than my mere words can convey! So grab a copy, read it, enjoy the book and perhaps share it with a friend for a journey shared is so much more fun.

    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!
