Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy moves to Boston to stay with her spinster aunt. She longs for romance to fill the void left by her parents' death. But when she falls hard for Steven O'Connor, the man who broke an engagement to her sister, Annie is worried. Will he break her heart too when he discovers who she really is?
It was great to see the O'Connor family again! Annie has recently been orphaned and has moved to Boston to live with her aunt. She decides to join a different kind of crowd than the one she is used to and brings out the protective streak in Steven. She and Steven are attracted to each other but both have issues to deal with. When she realizes Steven is the man who was once engaged to her sister, Annie is worried how he will react to her when she reveals her true identity.
I loved seeing the 'old' characters and how their stories are progressing. Annie was an interesting mix of fearless, damsel and Christian. Steven is decidedly against women/marriage because of how he messed up his past relationship. The author does a wonderful job of making you feel everything the characters feel and pulling you along through the story.
I rate this a 4/5. It was a wonderful ending to the series!
