Right up front, I'll say that although this is the fifth book in this particular family saga, it easily reads as a standalone and you can start right here to enter the world of the MacQuire women that Jaeger lovingly creates. A world of strong women who have each gone through pain and loss and deserve a shot at happiness.
Serena MacQuire is the younger sister, an extraordinary artist who moved away from the rural Connecticut suburbs of her youth into the Big Apple to hone her art and seek her fortune. With the help of her sassy and talented agent, she found success but not love and decides love isn't something she needs. Focusing on her art, she returns home for a visit and to focus on a newly commissioned project for a hospital wing. The cute-meet with Seamus Cleary is a case of mistaken identity, where she assumes he's the mover she hired to help her reorganize her studio. He's captivated by her and boldly steals a kiss, rocking both their worlds in its wake.
The story alternates points of view, mostly between the two main characters, and Jaeger does a wonderful job of making each voice distinct as well as compelling. The conflicts each faces feel real, as does the emotion swirling throughout. I devoured this book in a matter of hours and totally recommend it for your summer reading list - maybe not in your beach bag, unless you don't mind tearing up in public. But totally a curl up on the couch with a cup of tea or glass of wine and indulge like you would with a new Nicholas Sparks. Five out of five well-deserved stars for Ms. Jaeger.

While I enjoyed reading this story and liked the characters, there were some aspects that were a bit annoying and the whole reading experience turned out to be a mix of moderate pleasure and lots of eye-rolling.
I think the author did a great job depicting the painting creative process and the veterinarians’ hard work.
I liked the characters, they were nice people; the hero abandoned his career as a football player to become a veterinarian and the heroine is a painter. There’s a bunch of secondary characters strongly connected to the main characters and all this familiarity, instant bonding and coziness was a bit over the top.
There are some things that just felt weird: the insta-attraction/love (between the main couple and a secondary one), the heroine’s romantic past, the duo Tiffany/Cole.
More telling than showing, delivering lots of information through dialogue, excessive talking about feelings and mutual praising didn’t work for me, but other readers might enjoy it.
