This book continues the stories of the residents in Ocean City with the focus this time on Heather. Heather is the owner of the Lonely Loon B&B and at the end of the previous book, Following His Heart, she has a new guest check in. He's reserved the entire B&B for the entire winter.
Daniel Atwell needs quiet and solitude. He's supposed to be writing a book, but his secrets are becoming more than he can bear. And, when he realizes that he's creating a frustrating environment for his hostess, he feels the need to reach out to her. And, the more he reaches out to her, the more attracted to her he becomes.
Heather feels attracted to Daniel, but she's ashamed of her body and is convinced that she's ugly. She refuses to allow a man to get close to her.
Can the two of them move beyond their past hurts and pains? Can they resolve the conflict that is keeping them apart?
I enjoyed this book. It does deal with some heavy issues, but those are in a fair and balanced manner. Heather has some very real issues that many women today are facing. Daniel, on the other hand, experiences a living nightmare beyond description. His struggles are real, yet he continues to live in hope of things working out.
The end of the book is also realistic and satisfactory. Not everything is wrapped up in a tidy little bow - that's not real life. But, the reader is left with the satisfaction that the characters will continue to work things to a full and complete conclusion. Hopefully, the next book will focus on Cathy and more of the characters' lives will be revealed. Do not misunderstand, there is NO cliffhanger. But, the reader understands that another character will likely get her story next and the other characters' lives will continue in the background. This story did the same with Sara. Her story continued in the background of this book.
Romance - PG / PG13. There is kissing, some heavy petting, but the romance scene is largely fade to black.
There are some Innuendos - women talking about romance and references of desire between characters
Language - PG / PG13 - There are a few strong words - nothing extreme
My rating - 5 stars
Ms. Fasano always sends a powerful message in each of her stories. They are normal people just like you and I that have normal day to day issues that you can relate to. She puts twists and turns that keep the read entertained and invested in the story as she weaves her way into your heart. She gives you characters that are very well developed. Before you know they steal into your heart taking a piece of it with them. This is a story you wish didn’t have an ending as you watch their love play out on the pages you are very invested in their story. I loved each character even the supporting ones our outstanding. This is one author that is after your heart as she gives you a compelling story that will stay with you long after the last page. If you are looking for a read that has meaning, love people who are real that you can relate to I hope you pick this up and give it a read.
Heather is the owner of a B & B. She has pulled away from the dating scene & stays remote. She nursed her mother through breast cancer for 3 1/2 years until she lost the battle. Then she was tested & discovered she had the gene & opted for surgery. After the way her fiancee reacted, she let it color her own perception of herself.
Daniel is a writer that rented the entire B & B for the winter so he could have peace & quiet. Daniel has his own secrets & they are starting to weigh heavily on him. After he realizes his request is causing a hardship on his landlady, he reaches out to her.
Will their chemistry prevail? Will their secrets pull them apart? Can Daniel heal Heather? I love the detail that Donna incorporates into her book. There were secrets to reveal & twists & turns enough to keep you involved in the book. The plotline doesn't get bogged down & keeps moving. I loved this & am going to go buy Book 1 of the series while I wait for the third!!
Both Heather and Daniel are struggling with personal trials. Slowly, they learn to trust and love.
Each scene is well crafted. One of my favorites is that of Christmas Eve. Heather and her friends welcome a family into the inn. The little girl is battling cancer. It is very touching.
The characters are all brought to life with the author's words. She gave us a special treat at the end of the book with the Christmas Eve recipes.
I look forward to reading the other books in this series.
