From the very outset of this novel, and from her introduction in Flowers on Main, I knew that Kevin’s wife was going to die. And it was kind of tragic. But also something that I was gleefully anticipating… there’s not enough of her to become attached to. And I mostly just really wanted to get started on Kevin’s life and journey. Some of the extra complications of their relationship were not foreseen though. Which made the whole story all that much more intriguing.
Bree is the quiet, lovely O’Brien sister. So I seriously looked forward to reading her story. After all, she’s the quiet sane sister. And sometimes they’re the ones that are the most ridiculously fun. Particularly when you begin to find out about the things in her past which made her run. And the lead man in this story? Jake… he’s just gorgeous. And underhanded. And wonderful.
What a beautiful start to a beautiful series. It’s cute, it’s quaint and it’s everything that I love in a good contemporary romance series. Particularly since I seem to be drawn to the series which feature older adults now. And second chance love stories. And people with a ridiculous amount of history that makes you go yup… we all have a bit of a tough time in life… but there’s hope!
