Book 5

Quite a sweet tale of romance between two saddened souls who found their safe harbor in each other.

Tobias had served a prison sentence due to a mistake in his teens. Harper’s rock star husband wanted to divorce her. And Silver Springs was the perfect backdrop for those hearts to meld together until the husband returned.

My first book by author Brenda Novak, I was enticed by the story line. The author certainly kept the story going in most parts. The struggles of life were well depicted. Insecurity could hit any of us. I felt really sorry for Tobias who couldn’t seem to forgive himself. The divorce had certainly messed up her head.

The entire story revolved around the ebb and flow of thoughts between the two main characters. The characters were broken and needed to heal themselves. The romance and love soon blossomed when they began to forgive themselves and realize a few truths. The writing certainly evoked the emotions.

This was a story of second chances in life when forgiveness was abound. The book was a part of the series though could be read as a standalone. Overall, I would call it a sweet second chance romance.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

So much for forever. When Elle Devlin’s rock star husband ditches her on his way to the top, she takes her two daughters to her sister’s place in Silver Springs for the holidays, hoping family can heal her broken heart. But comfort comes in unexpected places when she crosses paths with Tobias Richardson.

The moment Tobias spots Elle, he recognizes a sadness he knows all too well. After spending thirteen years in prison paying for his regretful past, Tobias is ready to make amends, and maybe helping Elle is the way to do it. But offering her a shoulder to cry on ignites a powerful attraction and a desire neither saw coming.

Fearing her reaction, Tobias doesn’t divulge his ex-con status, let alone the shameful details. So when Elle’s ex shows up in Silver Springs and reveals the truth in a bid to win her back, Tobias is sure he’s lost her for good. But maybe this Christmas he’ll receive the forgiveness—and the love—he deserves.

  1. Brenda Novak is quickly becoming a favourite author of mine for both her romance and suspense. This was a sad story that ultimately became a triumph. I am glad you enjoyed this one as well Shalini.
