This story had a bit of a mystery involved as well as the usual romance.  It wasn’t anything too deep or anything, but it added an interesting element to the story.  Andie was a pretty important character in the last book, Riverbend Road, so I already knew her and her children quite well.  Marshall didn’t figure quite as prominently in that story so it was good to get to know him better here.

At first Marshall is quite prickly, which is somewhat understandable given his circumstances at the time.  I like that although Andrea is a bit weary of Marshall she also gives him some leeway.  I must admit though, Marshall was about one more outburst from being on my naughty list.  Like I said, some of his attitude is understandable.  Yet there’s only so many times you can be jerky and apologize before it becomes old and seems insincere.

I absolutely adore Andrea’s son, Will.  He is written just like an outgoing 4-year-old should be.  My heart broke for her daughter though.  That poor girl has gone through so much and the way she interacted with Marshall was so sweet.  Add to that the way Marsh understands how special it is that Chloe warms up to him and my heart about burst for Marshall’s relationship with those kids.

Marshall’s true reason for living at his sister’s is quite interesting.  It’s a tough situation and I was quite torn in how I felt about it all.  It’s something I can’t go into due to spoilers, but it really added another interesting layer to the story.  Between this story arc, the mystery of who hit Marshall, and the love story this book seems very well-rounded.

It was great to be reminded how much I love RaeAnne Thayne’s storytelling.  I’ve read her Hope’s Crossing series, of which the Haven Point series is a spin-off.  I realized I need more so will be seeking out the books of her Cowboys of Cold Creek series.  I can’t wait!

He just finished trade school for media arts and is looking for a job that will be a career so he can get out on his own. In the meantime he's got a steady job with benefits. Our youngest, Griffin, is 20 and in the Army. He just got married so I have also gained a daughter. Unfortunately, he is stationed in Washington so they're across the country from us. I was lucky enough to have the option of leaving the work force a few years ago, but recently went back part-time to learn a new trade working at a small family owned coffee shop.
