It's been eight long years since Michael Gallagher has laid eyes on Shay Angel, back when he was a boy from the most prominent family in town and she was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. But he hadn't cared about their differences—until one bad decision landed her in jail.

That was years ago and now he's back in Harmony Harbor for the holidays. So when Shay goes missing, Michael is intent on finding her—and finding out if their sizzling attraction is still there. But he's now a district attorney, and it looks like Shay is once again on the wrong side of the law.

My Review

After being jilted at the altar, Michael Gallagher heads to a local bar to drown his sorrows. Who can blame him after his fiancé, Bethany, took everything from him even his beloved dog. However, his problems are just beginning when he chooses a bar owned by Charlie Angel. Charlie hates Michael after what happened between Michael and Charlie’s niece, Shay.

Shay has taken up with a rough crowd and Michael feels responsible after what happened years ago. He tries to help her, but finds himself in the middle of a situation he has no idea how to handle. Michael is determined to make things right, but Shay isn’t making it easy.

This is a novella between the first two books. To really understand what is going on, I think you need to start reading with book one. I did, so I knew exactly what was happening and why.

Although this book gave us a nice glimpse into Michael’s character, I feel it was just a small taste. This novella felt more like an excerpt or a scene instead of a complete story, but the main mystery is solved and doesn’t leave you hanging. It’s more like a sneak peek into a full length book you just know is coming eventually. I actually felt more intrigued by Michael and Shay then I did for the characters in the previous book, although I liked them.

I do hope we meet up with Michael and Shay again. I read the preview for book #2 and that looks like it’s going to be a good one as well. This is a really good series and I’m looking forward to seeing how it progresses.
