Dakota Born by Debbie Macomber

This is Dakota #1. Lindsay needs a change. She has been in a relationship with Monte for two years. He refuses to marry her and she knows she needs to be done with him. Her best friend Maddy has been ordered to take a vacation so Lindsay and Maddy decided to go to Buffalo Valley, SD. Lindsay's family was from there. Buffalo Valley is falling apart. The farmers are going out of business. They desperately need a teacher, so Lindsay decides to take the job for a year partly to get away from Monte. She loves Buffalo Valley and starts changing things. She falls in love with Gage Sinclair but his stubbornness keeps them apart. Will Lindsay stay or go when the year is up?

I liked this book. I will be getting the second in the series, Dakota Home.

From the author:
Buffalo Valley, North Dakota. Like so many small towns, it's dying. Stores are boarded up, sidewalks cracked, houses wanting a coat of paint. But despite it all, there's a spirit of hope here, of defiance. The few people still left in Buffalo Valley are fighting for their town.
Lindsay Snyder is a newcomer. She's an outsider, even though she spent childhood vacations here. Now she returns to see the family house again, to explore family secrets and to reevaluate her life.
To her own amazement she decides to stay. Her decision marks a new beginning for Buffalo Valley—and for Lindsay Snyder, who discovers in this broken little town the love and purpose she's been seeking.
