Since You've Been Gone by Tari Faris

It's like returning to a familiar place, where friendships remain strong and true, and a big metal hippo  named Otis unexplainable moves around town!


I loved coming back to Heritage and into the last story of the series with Leah and Jon but it was the bonus story with Colby and Madison (who I absolutely adored!) that gave me all the feels. Ms. Faris knows how to ramp up the romantic tension and it kept me checked out of real life and into the lives of Jon and Leah and the miscommunication near-misses that had me on an emotional roller coaster. I think Colby and Madison's story was a sweet interlude that let my emotions settle. I'd say that readers will definitely want to these in order as there are a lot of characters from previous books who show up in this one and it can get a bit confusing but overall it was a sweet wrap up to a series that makes me wish was real so I could visit Heritage and all of my friends. Oh, and snap a selfie with Otis!!
