When Maze returns to Wildstone for the wedding of her estranged bff and the sister of her heart, it’s also a reunion of a once ragtag team of teenagers who had only each other until a tragedy tore them apart and scattered them wide.
Now as adults together again in the lake house, there are secrets and resentments mixed up in all the amazing childhood memories. Unexpectedly, they instantly fall back into their roles: Maze their reckless leader, Cat the den mother, Heather the beloved baby sister, and Walker, a man of mystery.
Life has changed all four of them in immeasurable ways. Maze and Cat must decide if they can rebuild their friendship, and Maze discovers her long-held attraction to Walker hasn’t faded with the years but has only grown stronger.
A reunion of the group of foster siblings launches The Forever Girl, as they all join together for the wedding of one of them.
Caitlin is the actual daughter of the foster parents, and while the others have always loved being in this family, some of them felt like they didn’t really belong.
Especially Maze, who has deep issues of abandonment and guilt for something she blames herself for…even though she has been given absolution.
Walker is also one who isn’t sure he belongs. The feeling of belonging hasn’t come easy to him, either.
His relationship with Maze has been on and off, mostly because the two of them don’t completely believe in it.
I enjoyed this story of coming together and finally reaching a place of truly belonging. 5 stars.
