Allie Dean is returning home to Tempest Indiana. When she left, she felt that she never wanted to see the town or the people again. She was an insecure, overweight young woman. Now, seven years later and 170 pounds lighter, she is back to arrange for a movie shoot. The company she works for is making a horror flick and need a few old places to shoot scenes. Allie is also ready for sweet, long overdue revenge on an old friend who treated her badly.

Duncan Henry grew up in Tempest, whose townsfolk saw the Henry's as an elite family who had it all. But appearances often deceive - Duncan was raised by a very controlling father. His only true friend, Allie Gray, moved away and life was never the same. Now Duncan is in a job he hates and feels he is not taken seriously. He is the weatherman for the local TV station, whereas he wants to write and produce the local news. Duncan has just met the beautiful new woman in town. He wants to get to know her, but feels something so familiar about her.

Really Something is a heartwarming, fun read. We follow the lives of Allie and Duncan, reunited after years of separation and misunderstandings. Allie returned to Tempest to extract revenge but found a loving family, old friendships, and new beginnings. All that glitters is not gold and what we really need is sometimes right in front of us.
