The mother finds a new love and they marry. She reluctantly allows the daughter to stay with her dad while she honeymoons in Europe for a month. She is now 11 and a very intelligent child. She loves her father and spending time with him. She is a very well adjusted child. and now 15 years later his first love returns to town. I LOVED this heroine. She was one hot cookie, she knew what she wanted and she had no problems letting him know that she wanted him and she intended to by-pass the curse and spend the rest of her life with him. He still fears for her and even though he wanted her he wanted her safe.
She is a writer of the paranormal genre. She comes to town with the intention of debunking the curse. It is a small town so there is a lot of fear and misinformation that she is going to have to get through to get to the truth. The family that did the curse is still in town also. they rule through fear. I thought this was a good story. There was mystery, adventure, bad guys, and one evil old woman. But, love conquers all. It was an entertaining read and I definitely recommend it. It was a little different kind of story for Ms. Phillips but it was an easy read and still good. It is very sexy so if that is a problem for you be advised. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 11/23/17
Derek Corwin deeply loves his high school sweetheart, Gabrielle, so for her own good, he lets her go. She moves out of state a short while later with her family. He marries a college interest, who got pregnant, and they had a daughter, are divorced and she remarried at the opening of the story. Holly, his 11 year old daughter, has come to live with Derek for part of the summer.
Gabrielle still loves Derek and no man she has met has been able to measure up to him. She has had success in her career as an author. She recently moved back to the area and has every intent of proving the curse cannot be real and winning Derek's love.
There is the obvious drama and conflict in this second chance romance. There is also a second story with Gabrielle's best friend and her fiance. It involves a suspense story in the second half of the story.
Gabrielle Donovan is a popular author who debunks myths. Thanks to her librarian friend, Sharon Merchant, she is giving a lecture on Curses: Irrational Psychological Suggestion at the Perkins-Stewart Public Library. Her next book will be on the Corwin Curse. She plans to research the curse in the towns of Perkins and Stewart. Mary Perkins, mayor of Perkins, is a direct ancestor to the original Mary Perkins who cursed the Corwins. Mary Perkins is willing to win the mayor's race by any means necessary. She doesn't welcome Gabrielle's interference. Hank Corwin, Derek's father, doesn't appreciate Gabrielle reminding the folks about the curse. He feels she is humiliating his family and plans to speak out at the lecture.
Gabrielle plans to seduce her high school sweetheart, whom she thought loved her. She hasn't been able to move past Derek Corwin. She needs to know where she stands with him. Gabrielle let Derek walk away from her fourteen years ago. She won't let him walk away again.
This is a light, contemporary romance perfect for a quick read. The plot is solid. There is a subplot or two which is not resolved. The characters are likeable. There are two stories. The first is the romance between Gabrielle and Derek. The second story is Sharon Merchant, who is being blackmailed, and her fiance, Richard Stern, who is running in the mayor's race against Mary Perkins. Both stories are sewn seamlessly together in the HEA ending. Over all, a good, first book in the series, and a solid four star rating.

The two have come back to their hometown after 14 years away. Derek is a divorced father of a 11 year old daughter, Holly. Gabby is writing a book about the Corwin curse and to debunk the belief of the curse and to drive some sense into Derek.
Gabby and Holly's bond is instant and beautiful to see. They become close very quickly. I loved Holly as she was so happy, go lucky and exuberant little girl.
The story behind Gabby best friend, Sharon was part of the story too which was a delight. Loved how Gabby helped Sharon to take charge of her life and not let her past interfere in her future. Loved their friendship and how they both were each other's support system and had each other's backs.
I adored this book and looking forward to reading the love stories of the Corwin cousins and how they overcome their belief in. The curse.
But for me this book wasn't awesome or full of suspense. There are other authors who do this genre so much better. And I wouldn't bother paying nearly £4 for the next book in the series
Narration was awesome too.
