Cady Moreland has unfinished business that moves her away from her family in Denver to the small town of Magdalene in Maine. This unfinished business includes an old boyfriend, Coert Yeagar, now the Sheriff of Magdalene, and her estranged brother Caylen who lives a couple of hours away. When Cady gets to Magdalene she falls in love with and buys the lighthouse spending a fortune to completely restore it and move in. Coert, knowing she moved to town, is a complete turd to her, trying to scare her into moving away. However, Cady decides that she can live with being close to Coert yet never being with him. She digs her feet in and decides to stay. Of course, this is a Kristen Ashley novel, so I know that there may be heartbreak but there will also be a Happily Ever After too! It may just take a little while to get there.
There are so many things I like about Kristen Ashley books. One of those is that her women are real. They are usually 40-ish, normal sized, normal looking, and have normal lives. They are also strong and in the case of Cady, incredibly sweet and nice. Coert is also KA’s typical alpha male. Handsome, in a very manly way, terse, and confident in the it’s my way or the highway kind of way. In the beginning of this novel I knew I loved Cady immediately. She was so giving, some of her scenes were emotionally tragic (have a hankie at hand!), yet I never felt sorry for her circumstances. Life just kind of kicked her in the butt. Coert on the other hand took a little time to warm up to. Part of that were all their flashback scenes. Just as you were getting to know him in real time it would flip to a flash back and their tragic past was playing out. He was harder for me to like because of that. However, once he was all in with Cady, I was all in with Coert. Their story was really moving and I liked it alot.
The only downside for me was that I think a third of this book could have been cut during an edit. For me it it lagged in the middle and I got a little antsy. I wanted the story to move along a little faster! Other than the slight slowness it was a perfect ending to the Magdalene series. Actually it made me want to go back and re-read the first two! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❣️
