Stepping back into Haven Point is like having coffee with an old friend.  It’s been far too long (over a year!) since I’ve been for a visit.

Before I get to the love story in this book, I want to talk about the friendship between Katrina and Sam.  Friends since early childhood, they suddenly find themselves moving along different paths.  Katrina still loves Sam and cherishes their friendship, but she’s ready for the next phase of her life while Sam is still into the flirting/dating scene.  The reactions and feelings Katrina has throughout this story are so true to life.  So many of us go through the same feelings as they feel themselves going in different directions from those they are close to and we don’t know how to “fix” things.  The friendships in this series are one of the things that make it so great.

Now onto the main part of this book, Katrina and Bowie.  And Milo.  And Gabi.  I really can’t see how anyone could resist falling for Kat.  She’s so kind and patient on top of being beautiful and generous.  All things that are evident before one even gets to know her on a deeper level.  As for Bowie; he has the same characteristics but it takes some getting to know him to see these attributes.  His dedication to his brother, Milo, is enough to make him seem like a decent guy even when he’s prickly. 

As much as I adore Katrina, her single-minded focus when it came to her goal of adopting Gabi were actually a negative.  It would seem it would be a positive thing to be focused on a goal and not let anything distract from that goal, but when you can’t see that there actually are some people who want to help you attain that goal it’s a problem.  I was so glad when that was finally pointed out to her.

To sum up the way this story made me feel, just read the very last paragraph.  Like being wrapped in your favorite warm, fluffy blanket.  All the feels!
