Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive two-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.
Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.
Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Summer Harbor, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. It’s just a one-week road trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?
This is the fourth book in the Chapel Springs series. Denise Hunter has written each book in the series and a compelling and hearts during way. I was excited to review this last and fourth book in the series.
This book can stand alone even though the references to the previous characters. I highly recommend read the other books just because they are each so good.
As soon as I opened this book, just like her other books, I was drawn in. I finish this book in one day because I couldn't put it down. I love the character development of Ryan and Abby. The emotional and romantic tension in the book was palatable.
Abby's backstory of her family came out bits and pieces. As did Ryan and Abby's backstory. Both of these created day deeper level to the book than just a romance novel. Also Abby's friend Gillian was a key supporting character as she helps take the book to a deeper level.
Denise Hunter is a fabulous author and you won't be disappointed when you pick up this book.
I received this book free in exchange for my honest review.
