Abby Donavan came to the small beach community of Crystal Cove to start over. After a painful affair broke her heart and derailed her burgeoning career, taking over management for the just-opened bed-and-breakfast was the safe choice. In this sleepy town, Abby figured she could bury her memories and forget the pain.
When the chance to have her own hotel falls into her lap, though, she can’t resist the temptation. Making the old Riverside Inn into the showplace she’s always dreamed of running offers the second chance she never expected.
Abby didn’t expect another kind of second chance to land on her doorstep at the same time. Ryland Kent wants to help her bring the Riverside back to life, and his passion for restoration is irresistible. But as much as she wants to ignore it, she can’t help seeing another spark in his eyes . . . one that offers to reignite her own flame.
Sometimes the path to a happily-ever-after is anything but smooth.
Good book! Abby has had some problems, but she has come to Crystal Cove for a fresh start. She is hiding out and not expecting anything good to happen when she gets the opportunity to own her hotel. She works with Ryland to restore it and sparks fly. The two of them start out on the wrong foot, but could be just perfect for each other.Abby was a good character. She knows and understands who she is and I liked that. She and Ryland don't start off great and both have issues. I like how they don't just get over their issues but they do talk. I wish I had read the first two in the series first but the author does a good job with the characters and giving you enough information to make you feel like you aren't really missing anything. The author also does really well with descriptions, making you 'see' what is going on as you read.
It was a 4/5 for me. I now want to read the first two in this series.
