In the town of Tranquility Bay, summer is the season of second chances...
Single mother Hope Thompson has built a happy life for herself and her twins in beautiful Tranquility Bay, Washington. She doesn’t dwell on her painful past—especially not on the man who broke her heart all those years ago. But when Hope’s beloved son needs help, she takes a desperate chance and reaches out to her children’s father.
Nick Fortune lives life in the spotlight as a champion race car driver. He’s shocked to hear from Hope and even more surprised to learn that he’s a father. He immediately heads to the Pacific Northwest to confront the past—and the woman he once loved.
There, on the quiet lakeshore, Nick and Hope must work together to save their son—even if it means facing their complicated past—for a second chance as a family.
Marie's ThoughtsOh my goodness, this was not at all what I was expecting. This emotionally charged story is far from light-hearted. It’s a raw, emotional story that will hit you in all the feels.
Hope and Nick loved each other once. And in a moment of desperation, Hope is forced to confront that love head on, as she and Nick must learn to overcome a past full of mistakes to save the very life that they’ve created together.
This was a very heartfelt, deeply emotional book that brought two people back together after years of heartache. It’s a story of forgiveness, hope and above everything else, love.
Hope and Nick were a shining example of how writing true-to-life characters can connect you to a story on a whole different level. They were a perfect match for one another, and despite mishaps in the past, were able to forgive the past and move forward with a deeper love and understanding for one another. Their story is absolutely beautiful.
