About the Book:
But who was Taft Bowman going to call when he needed help? Because ten years ago Laura Pendleton, the love of his life, had left town without a word, then or since. Now she was back, with a new last name—and two adorable, high-needs little ones in tow. Well, Taft had been stupid enough to let her go once before…he wasn't about to make the same mistake again. He'd never stopped loving her—and one look at those adorable little faces and he knew that he was meant to be with Laura and her kids forever. All he had to do was convince her that this time he was a man she could count on!
Ten years ago they were engaged but then he lost his parents in a crime and was mourning them in self-destructive ways. She calls off the wedding and then leaves town. He doesn't follow and eventually she marries another. Though it was not a happy marriage, her husband is now dead and she has returned to her hometown with two cute kids, one of whom has Down's Syndrome. Her mother hires him to do some work for the inn they run so of course they are thrown together. They are both still attracted, but she's afraid to trust him again.
It is pretty much a basic romance. At times the writing is a little melodramatic but the basic story is good, though not extraordinary. It's pretty much what you expect from this kind of book. Grade: B-.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.
