This new heart-warming contemporary romance takes place in the Florida Keys and promises romance/passion, and plenty of adventure.
Cardiac surgeon, Sean Flannigan, lost his daughter to a rare form of leukemia; he can mend broken hearts, but his is beyond repair. Kayla Holmes, along with her sisters, inherited guest cottages in the Keys after their stepfather died. Their high spirits and positive energy are a beacon of light that directs Sean’s sailboat into Paradise Cove. Can Kayla’s compassion find a crack in Sean’s armor? Sometimes love isn’t enough to heal a wounded heart.
For the first half of this book, I completely intended to give it 4 stars. Then, I finished up the last 50+ pages in the middle of the night and ended it with a silly grin on my face (yes, those are pretty frequent). The end of the book definitely brought it up to 5 stars.
I did have one issue in the beginning and that was figuring out which of the women was the one speaking. All the voices blended together . . . in the beginning. So I downloaded the Kindle version and tried to read along with the audio. Then, about 1/3 of the way through the book, this wasn’t a problem anymore. The characters’ voices seemed distinct enough, I think. And I really enjoyed the accent Cynthia Vail gave Sean *almost swoons just thinking about him* She did a great job with Sean, as well as with Miguel and his family.
This book was definitely an easy read/listen. I loved the characters and the story had a very good flow/rhythm to it. There were very few, if any, downtime spots. Everything kept moving along so I always wondered what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to dive into the next one (also an audio for me!).
Disclaimer – This book does have a few very steamy sexual encounters but it wasn’t over the top. I suppose I would call it an 18+ novel but it wasn’t too bad.
How about an extra little treat? We even have a little music playlist to go with the book! How fun is that 🙂
