My Review

After hearing that her ex-husband is being released from prison, Reagan Hart moves from New York City with her twelve-year-old daughter, Meredith.  She finds a beautiful house to rent in Wentworth Cove, a small town in Maine. She prays her ex-husband won’t find them.  No way is she going to let that man back in her life or the life of their daughter.

Reagan’s ex, Jared Loper, is determined to find his ex-wife and daughter.  He doesn’t care what it takes to find her and he has no intention of taking advice from his well meaning father. He’s not thrilled to learn they have left New York City, which means he will have to break his parole to get to them.

The estate Reagan moves into is managed by Brett Mason.  His aunt actually owns the house, but had to move into assisted living. Brett is quite interested in their latest tenant and makes sure to always be there when she needs anything.  He suspects there may be more to her story than meets the eye.

This is the third book in the Wentworth Cove series, but the only real connection is the town and a few returning characters.  However, there are no cliffhangers and no continuing threads to worry about so each book can be read on its own.  I read the first two a few years ago, but I think this one is the best by far.

I enjoyed watching this story unfold.  I didn’t always agree with Reagan but I could understand where she was coming from with her decisions.  She might be a bit overprotective of her daughter but with good reasons.  She’s not ready to jump into another relationship, again with good reason.  It’s a natural progression for her to take things at a slow pace.

The book itself is anything but slow.  I devoured it and loved every minute of it.  I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next.  The characters are realistic and feel as if they can be your next door neighbor.  It’s a story filled with emotion and tugs at the heartstrings.

I enjoy this author’s writing style very much.  I’m hoping their will be more books in this series.
