I'd pre-ordered this, and when it showed up on my Kindle, I actually smiled in anticipation of reading it. That's because no one writes a good romance as well as Ms. Reinhardt. Her female protagonists are always likable and well-defined, and they possess strength and grace when overcoming past and present challenges. But they're each unique, so that there's no cookie-cutter formula here, and that's true of every story line in the series as well.
Sarah is running from an abusive ex-husband when she falls into the fold of the strong, protective and welcoming women (and men) of Willow Bay. The author does a wonderful job of character development as we accompany Sarah through the angst from her past, and the steps she takes, physically and emotionally, to build a brighter future. Sarah is no wilting lily, but her fears are more than justified, and the author's writing makes them palpable. Nothing is overwrought, however, just realistic--though there are plenty of tugs at your heartstrings. Every scene, every decision, every action, every bit of dialogue is beautifully written, and the author skillfully writes a story that pulls you right in.
The authenticity of Sarah's feelings--including her doubts, hopes and desires when she meets the handsome and supportive Tony Reynard--resonates with any woman who has been hurt and resists being vulnerable to that kind of hurt ever again. We don't just observe the budding relationship from a distance, we become enmeshed in it.
And that's why I love this series. You care, truly care, for the characters. You almost feel as if you're one of the remarkable women of Willow Bay, there to support, to encourage and to celebrate each one's accomplishments with them. Each protagonist in each of the books of this series is quite different, yet they share the common bond of being women who have lived enough years to appreciate that life, though not easy nor predictable, always holds the hope, if not the promise, of happily ever after.
