Summary

From Wall Street Journal best-selling author Kristen Proby comes a small-town second-chance romance! Fernhill Lane is the newest installment in the Huckleberry Bay series!

She didn’t think she’d ever come home again.

When Sarah Bitterman left Huckleberry Bay at the tender age of 19, newly married to a much older man, she had every intention of coming home to visit. Sadly, she quickly learned that was out of the question.

Until her husband throws her out with only the clothes on her back and finally sets Sarah free.

Coming back to the small seaside town has been the hardest thing she’s ever done. Facing those who loved her the most and think she turned her back on them is almost unbearable. But she needs her two best friends, and she’s longed to make amends with her little brother.

Huckleberry Bay is like the art in her soul. And now she can put down roots and begin to heal.

Tanner Hilleman knew it was a mistake to let the love of his life go all those years ago, and he’s never stopped thinking about her. Now that she’s home, while he’s giving her the space she needs, he’s also determined to make Sarah see that they belong together.

Unfortunately, Sarah’s past has followed her to Huckleberry Bay and threatens to destroy everything she loves. Will she and Tanner survive it? Or will it tear them apart for good?

Wonderful book

I love Huckleberry Bay and want to live there. This visit it’s all about Tanner and Sarah, can she forgive him for the past and make a future for themselves. I had a ball listening to this book. The narration was wonderful, it brought all the characters to life. It was wonderful catching up with everyone in huckleberry bay. I loved the interaction between Tanner and Sarah and watching their relationship evolve. I’m excited for June and Apollo’s story next.

Loved it!

Fernhill Lane is the second book in the Huckleberry Bay series by Kristen Proby, featuring a second chance romance for Tanner and Sarah. Sarah returned home after leaving an abusive, loveless marriage, and began the task of rebuilding her life and her self-esteem. Tanner has spent months biding his time, waiting for Sarah to be ready for him to pursue her again. When Sarah finds herself in danger, will forced proximity give them both an opportunity to take a chance?

I listened to the audio version of this book on Audible, which was beautifully narrated by And Arndt and Gomez Pugh. I loved the suspense twists in this book, and growing bonds of all the characters, the witty banter, laughter, passion, romance, drama, action, and emotion. Tanner was a top notch swoon worthy leading man, and Sarah rose like a Phoenix from the ashes of her past. And judging from the epilogue, June’s book should be an entertaining read!! I highly recommend both books of this series!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A second chance at life, a second chance at love


Sarah has returned home to Huckleberry Bay. Sarah left many years ago to what she thought was going to be a fairytale wedding and romance. Little did she know the man she married was a controlling jerk and all the plans she had of keeping her friends and making a safe place for her brother all went down the drain. After having every decision of hers control for too many years Sarah now has a second chance at life. With a little help from her life long friend, Sarah begins to live her life for her. She has a job, she is painting again and rediscovering who she is. However, odd things begin to happen to Sarah. She passes them off until she no longer can.


Tanner knows Sarah is back in town, and also knows that letting her go was one of the biggest mistakes he ever made. He stands by as long as he can as he washes her struggle to get her life together. He offers her help in every way he can, but yet knows she must be independent and do things on her own. Tanner still feels the connection and the chemistry they want shared. The flames have not died for him, but he knows he can’t push too hard either. But when Sarah is in danger, he can no longer stand aside, and his alpha self comes out in full force to make sure she’s safe and protected.

Andi Arndt and Gomez Pugh do an amazing dual narration to this second chance, small-town romance. Fernhill Lane is a beautiful story about second chances. The narrators do an amazing job, bringing the feelings of the page to something the listener can grasp a hold of to take in the story deeper. Kristin Proby created a beautiful story that the narrator’s brought to life.

A beautiful second chance romance

Tanner and Sarah's love story was everything I was craving when these two were introduced in Lighthouse Way. Sarah is getting back on her feet after leaving her abusive ex husband, and goes through tremendous growth in this book. Tanner is single minded in his focus and devotion for Sarah. Their relationship is low angst, but the story has a strong suspense storyline that kept me engaged and turning pages. I loved how possessive and alpha Tanner is, while still being gentle with Sarah. This book felt very much like living in their love and I enjoyed every minute of it!

As with many of Kristen Proby's books, this series has an awesome girl gang. June and Luna and the Three sisters have some fun moments and there is some great world building and friend-relationship building in this story.

For my reread I listened to the audiobook narrated by Andi Arndt and Gomez Pugh. Both did an exceptional job performing Tanner and Sarah and all the friends. My favorite part of the narration was Gomez Pugh's voice for Wolfe. It was such a nice carryover from Sebastian York's performance in Lighthouse Way it brought a smile to my face.

Fernhill Lane

Sarah is back in her hometown, healing from a rotten marriage. Tanner, her highschool sweetheart has her in his sights but she also can’t help but be drawn back into him too.

Their connection is scorching even after all this time. He just wants her to be safe and happy. And that might come off a little strong at times.

Things are going wrong at every turn, not between her and Tanner, just odd things. And it becomes apparent that it doesn’t seem like harmless fun. Something or someone is after Sarah.

We find out who but it's shocking to say the least.
But with good friends and a man beside her who only wants to protect, it turns out just how it's supposed to.

I liked the narration. Gomez is a favourite of mine.

3.75 ‘Come Home’ Stars

Awwww, talk about a sweet second chance romance! I’m adoring this Huckleberry Bay gang and all its interesting characters and stories, this time with Sarah and Tanner’s love tale. It’s been a rough one, specially for poor Sarah, but now those times are gone and its all about falling in love again, and truly coming back HOME…

Fernhill Lane is just as captivating, sexy and entertaining as usual staple in Ms. Proby’s addictive writing, a true feel good romance with just the perfect hint of mystery/suspense, which here was spot on, I was super invested in finding who was the villain, lol.

Thought I adore all things KP, Tanner just didn’t feel like all other Proby’s book boyfriends, and don’t get me wrong, because in the PRESENT he SO is, he actually excels at it! I know I’m a grudgeful b!tch, so the trouble is in my mind 100%, but I just couldn’t get over his reasoning for breaking up with Sarah, his high school sweetheart, given her awful family life – yes, I’m well aware it’s a valid and realistic reason! – but for ME, that’s not a Kristen Proby book boyfriend, didn’t feel like something they would do, no matter if present or past, because that led to her misfortune, when all she wanted was to be loved! Sigh… On the plus side he knows he royally screwed up in the past so me more than makes up for it. Her extremely long celibacy, to his in her face past, also left a bitter taste in my mouth though.

But she DID have someone who never stopped loving her, ALWAYS, her girls, Luna and June, how I adored this sisterhood, the companionship, the pure love, and support, wow, Ms. Proby always gives us strong female characters, so this trio is just proof of that, and I can’t get enough, specially after that epilogue, omg, I need June and Apollo’s book ASAP!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Five Stars

I'm so excited to return to Huckleberry Bay! Tanner and Sarah intrigued me in Lighhouse Way - there was just so much history that I couldn't wait to dive into. And now that the moment is here, I'm beyond thrilled - it was just so much more than I could've hoped for.

My heart hurt for all that Sarah had to endure but I feel that she really had to go through it to finally find her voice and become the strongest version of herself. I loved that Tanner knew she needed to heal and was so patient with her.

I absolutely cannot wait to get June & Apollo's story next...these characters have quickly become favorites and I don't want to go too long without dropping in for a visit.

fast paced, quick listen

Fernhill Lane is the second book in the Huckleberry Bay series by Kristen Proby about 3 friends and them finding love in the small town of Huckleberry Bay on the Oregon coast. I love small town romances and set them near where I live and I'm a goner.

Sarah has returned to her hometown after leaving her husband of 10 years. It was a bad situation with a controlling man and she knew that there was more for her back home than the lies her husband kept giving her. But after the apartment she was staying in burns down, she needs a new place to stay. And of course living in a small town, the choices are few. Luckily she finds the best little place for her and her car. Only catch? The place belongs to her ex, Tanner.

Small town romance with a second chance at romance? This is the story of Tanner and Sarah. Obviously these two still have feelings for one another, but the past may get in the way of any friendship or any sort of relationship these two have. I liked the way Tanner let it be known early on how he felt and how he regretted the decisions he made in the past. Sarah had some healing to do but with the friendships she had in town and the support they gave her, they lifted her up and gave her a strength she was looking for.

I liked the characters and the connection between the romantic leads and the friendships. I think as a collective, the whole cast is what I liked about Fernhill Lane. The way they were always there for one another and the way they helped each other grow was an important aspect in Sarah's growth and moving on from her past. The little hint of mystery added to my enjoyment.

I experienced this book by audio and I think that aspect drew me out a few times. While I liked Andi Arndt's performance as Sarah, it was Gomez Pugh's portrayal as Tanner that wasn't my favorite. I think If I would've physically read the book, I might have rated the book higher.

Overall, this was an enjoyable second chance romance that was a quick read/listen. It had just enough mystery and drama to keep you turning the pages. It seemed pretty easy and basic and didn't dive too deep, but Tanner and Sarah still kept it fresh and light. Fernhill Lane can definitely be read as a standalone, but if you like small town romances, give the series a go.
