Review: Provenance by Carla Laureano

About the book:
From two-time RITA Award-winning author Carla Laureano comes a story of romance, transformation, and the beauty of belonging.
Los Angeles interior designer and former foster kid Kendall Green is in high demand, both for her impeccable eye and for her uncanny ability to uncover the provenance of any piece. But for all her success, skyrocketing costs have put her California home and her business in jeopardy. Then an unexpected inheritance provides a timely solution: a grandmother she never knew has left her a group of historic properties in a tiny Colorado town on the edge of ruin.

To young, untried mayor Gabriel Brandt, Jasper Lake is more than another small town--it's the place that saved his life. Now, seeing the town slowly wither and die, he's desperate to restore it to its former glory. Unfortunately, his vision is at odds with a local developer who wants to see the town razed and rebuilt as a summer resort. He's sure that he can enlist the granddaughter of one of its most prominent former citizens to his cause--until he meets Kendall and realizes that not only does she know nothing of her own history, she has no interest in reviving a place that once abandoned her.

In order to save his beloved town, Gabe must first help Kendall unravel the truth of her own provenance--and Kendall must learn that in order to embrace the future, sometimes you have to start with the past.

My thoughts:
Provenance was just as good as I expected it to be! After reading the MacDonald Family Trilogy last year, I was eager to pick up this new release from Carla Laureano and it did not disappoint. 

I loved the characters and setting. The town sounds so beautiful and it was fun to read about. Gabriel was a great character, as was Kendall. I liked how the characters seemed realistic and their emotions/actions genuine. The romance was nice and I liked the ending.

All in all, Provenance was a wonderful read. It is somewhat of a longer book, but I enjoyed that as the story didn't seem rushed and was a deeper read. I recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
