About the Book:
Falling for a handsome stranger on the very morning they meet is hardly what recently divorced Abby Miller planned for her return to Seaview Key. Hoping to mend an old friendship and to give back to the community she loves, Abby's definitely not looking for love.
For ex-soldier Seth Landry, Seaview Key seems like the perfect place to heal a broken heart…eventually. And when he rescues a beautiful woman on the beach, his nightmares about the past are eclipsed by daydreams about the future.
Neither Abby nor Seth are looking for forever, but powerful love has its own timetable. And taking a chance on the future will test their courage in ways neither of them could possibly have anticipated.
Abby is in her early forties, and like most divorced women that age, she has her share of baggage. Seth isn't divorced; his love died. His best friend is married to her best friend--and by the way, she and her best friend's husband used to be an item. Both Abby and Seth have to decide what they want from life and decide to go for it.
Evidently this is the second book of a series but I didn't feel I missed much by not reading the first book. There are not a lot of useless characters and recounted plot lines. I think sometimes Sherryl Woods bleeds series to death but there is no obvious target here for another book. Like the characters in Woods' other books, Abby and Seth are in bed before the wedding but we don't get to watch.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. Grade: B+
