This was a nice romantic read, almost an oasis amongst my tempest of thrillers. My first book by author Denise Hunter, I was quite taken in by Sophie, my main character, who had lived her life for her family but found herself running her bookshop at Piper’s Cove.
Everything was going well until the entry of her high school sweetheart Aiden. Memories crashed on to her, and nature too had her say when a hurricane caused them to be stranded together. Sparks were bound to fly.
I loved the sweetness of this romance. A gentle read about family and love and forgiveness. A HEA it was for sure, but I enjoyed how the author made me care for the characters. I found myself longing to read more of her books.
Overall, a fast, comfortable read about two lovable characters. Almost an escapist read.

Sophie Lawson should be enjoying her sister’s wedding day. But nothing could have prepared her to see the best man again.
After her mother became bedridden and her father bailed on the family, Sophie found herself serving as a second mother to her twin brother, Seth, and younger sister, Jenna. Sophie supported her siblings through their college years, putting aside her own dream of opening a bookshop in Piper’s Cove—the quaint North Carolina beach town they frequented as children.
Now it’s finally time for Sophie to follow her own pursuits. Seth has a new job, and Jenna is set to marry her college beau in Piper’s Cove. But the destination wedding reunites Sophie with best man Aiden Maddox, her high school sweetheart who left her without a backward glance.
When an advancing hurricane strands Aiden in Piper’s Cove after the wedding, he finds the hotels booked to capacity and has to ask Sophie to put him up until the storm passes. As the two ride out the weather, old feelings rise to the surface. The delay also leaves Sophie with mere days to get her bookshop up and running. Can she trust Aiden to stick around? And will he find the courage to risk his heart?
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
