This is another great book by one of my favorite authors that I just could not put down. This is book 2 of the Series of “Aspen Cove” it is a stand-alone but I would recommend reading them in order as there is so much to learn and fall in love with each character of this sweet town you won't want to miss anything along the way. This story had so much depth to it, the layers just kept bring you more enjoyment and entertainment while you fall in love even more with the characters and the town. I received an ARC copy of this book and have voluntarily written an honest review. This series gets even better with each book as you start to feel part of the community of Aspen Cove and the need to learn more fill you with anticipation for the next book. This is a delightful romance story that left me feeling warm and contented but at the same time wanting more.
