Welcome to Hartwell, a quiet seaside escape where uncovering old secrets could lead one woman to discover the meaning of a love that lasts…
While Doctor Jessica Huntington engages with the inmates at the women’s correctional facility where she works, she’s always careful to avoid emotional attachments in her personal life. Loss and betrayal taught her that lesson long ago. But when she comes across a set of old love letters in the prison’s library and visits the picturesque town of Hartwell to deliver them to their intended recipient, she finds herself unable to resist the town’s charm—and her attraction to the sexy owner of a local bar proves equally hard to deny.
Since his divorce from his unfaithful ex-wife, Cooper Lawson has focused on what really matters: his family and the boardwalk pub they’ve owned for generations. But the first time Jessica steps into his bar, Cooper is beyond tempted to risk his heart on her. Yet as their attraction grows hotter and Jessica remains stubbornly closed off, he begins to realize it will take more than just passion to convince her there’s only one real thing in life worth fighting for….
I really enjoyed this book! I have other books by Samantha Young that were a hit for me so this should have not come as a surprise that I loved this one too!
I loved the mystery and behind Jessica and her family as well as her choice of work and the ease of Copper even though he was dealing with past issues(ex-wife) as well.
The small little town of Heartwell made me want to go seek it out and live there! I loved all the characters int is (with he exception of a few)( and all the mystery behind some of the characters. Everyone was was well developed weather it be a side character or a main one and the chemistry between Coop and Jessica? outstanding(pun for those who read the book intended).
I will def be re-reading this one and hope that this is not a stand alone! I am obsessed with this town and the people in it and want to know more!
