I bought the second book because I liked the writing style and the characters... I'm really hoping I like the story there and that the author was able to correct these items... I know that's bad to be so not picky but it's important to me as a wife of a Marine.
I never quite connected with the heroine. Kat Chandler is the new principal of the elementary school. Apparently, vandals are spray-painting bad things about her on the school walls – but the why is not really addressed. Maybe it’s just the hook the author used to get the kids into her after-school program, but then why not just deface the school, why have the vandalism directed specifically at her? Kat apparently grew up in the small town where the story takes place, but I never got any sense of belonging to the community from her. There was so much potential to bring out about Kat’s character from the loss of her Marine fiancée two years prior to the story, to her previous career before becoming a principal (I’m assuming she was a teacher, but that subject wasn’t broached), to her relationships with her sister and best friend. Unfortunately, everything just seemed to be superficial.
The story was OK, but it could have been really good had the author done her homework about the military and added considerably more depth to the heroine. This is the first of, at least, three books in the series – however, I won’t be buying the rest.
The characters in this book are complex and developed nicely. Not only are the main characters, Micah and Kat developed, we get to see Micah’s son Ben develop, along with some other minor characters. I really liked Kat's character. She has a strong independent personality and I love that she stands up for what she believes in. She has a rough past, but this is part of her growth. Micah is a single father trying to do his best to raise his son. He has had a rough past as well and I love seeing how that shaped him. He is also a part of the Marine Corps.
I love the plot of this story. A single father in the Marines trying to do right by his son and a young school principal trying to help teach kids peace and love. This really is a heartwarming story about two people finding a common interest and exploring it. I really loved both of these characters and watching them grow together. This story also made me cry. There were parts that were sad for many different reasons. Some of the tough topics covered are single parenthood, bullying, disabilities, and family life for a marine. I think Annie did an amazing job covering these topics for the most part.
The minor characters in the book added a lot. I loved that the author easily set up at least two more books in the series. It was organically set up as well, which is good because I hate when it feels like characters are being forced together. I cannot wait for these minor characters to step into the spotlight and get their own books. I also feel they added to this book as they were there as a voice of reason and even to add comic relief at times. This is important in any book, but even more important in a book like this one that is tackling tougher situations.
I had a couple issues with this book as well. Sometimes I wasn’t sure if I was reading first person or third person. I was confused at some points at who I was seeing the story though. I also felt there wasn’t enough about the Marine Corps or family life included. With that being said, these were both minor issues for me that I could get past. While at times they were distracting, they did not take away from the book too much.
In conclusion, I really liked this book. There was laughter and tears, but I loved every minute of it. I love authors who are not afraid to include topics in their books that might not be easy to read about. I would recommend this to a friend and I plan to read the rest of the series as they release. I really enjoyed Annie Rains writing and look forward to reading more from her.
