Eh... the darkest hour was kinda lame, IMHO. Basically, the family member requesting help was a kid who never knew his father, and Shaelyn's an aunt of the kid. The kid's father turned out to be involved in a case Brady's working so, so he can't tell Shae anything, which leads to the breakup "you lied to me!" The two threads didn't really tie together that well, and you can guess how the problem was resolved at the end.
It did not disappoint! At times funny, at times a little sad, you will feel for the characters as they go through the ups and downs of finding their way back to each other. Maria has a knack for writing supporting characters that get your attention, add humor and have depth themselves. The Incomparable Georgette Heyer is well known for this, and Maria will certainly keep going in that vein as she continues her writing career, I'm sure. Shae and Brady's grandmothers are a hoot, especially Shae's grandmother. Brady's neighbor is another funny addition.
I think Shae's cousin needs her own story (hint, hint) and Luke could use his own story too ... Danvers intrigued me and I'd like to see a bit more of him down the road. Since this is the first in a series, I can honestly say I will read more by Maria Luis.
This is a fun read and very well done! Looking forward to more books from this talented new author!
Set in New Orleans, the story of Shaelyn and Brady has a little of everything – a wacky neighbor, an outrageous grandmother, meddling but well-meaning family, an acquaintance who over shares about her bedroom gymnastics, a nephew who’s 13 going on 30, and a second chance romance. This charming, captivating, entertaining read will leave you wanting more. With a flavor and tone reminiscent of Sandra Hill’s Cajun series, Maria Luis gives the reader a delightfully hilarious, heartwarming, feel good time!

Yes, it has all the usual elements of a second chance at love story – but even so it is not at all predictable; the story having so many twists and turns that no one could ever see coming.
Shaelyn and Brady as the lead characters are likeable, well written and extremely real: but both focussed on very different things. Shaelyn wants nothing more than to ‘fix’ her grandmother’s life, so as she can leave town get back to her own. Brady is focussed on his career – determined to gain a promotion – and prepared to cut everything but work from his life in order to achieve that goal. But then their paths cross again – and despite all their best efforts it would seem that all those well laid plans may well fly out of the window.
But even though each time Shaelyn and Brady cross paths their energy simply sizzles, misunderstandings and past hurts seem destined to keep them apart - neither of them able to quite forgive or forget. Will they take a second chance on each other? Can we expect smooth sailing ahead? What fun would that be? And this book is nothing if not fun.
But steamy sex scenes alone would not be enough to make this story great – that element comes from all the secondary characters who each bring their own unique attributes into the mix: meddling grandmothers; a crazy neighbour; a cranky boss (Brady’s) a supportive cousin/boss (Shaelyn’s); wacky friends you can’t help but wish were your own - and then there is Julian, a 13 year old with heart, who you want so badly to have a happy ending!
Mix all these ingredients together and the end result is simply magic!
