***Tina – #NerdGirlMama’s Review***
For a debut novel the author Anna Chastain writes a romance story, but from the point of after the characters fall in love instead of leading up to it.   The author’s writing does flow and the story is believable and keeps you interested in this book.  The characters are defined and I can relate to the main character Juliet, having raised my daughter alone for the first 7 yrs by myself.  The character of Cole the little boy was a refreshing part of this story too.

However I did feel that we needed a little more back story on the characters Juliet, Chris, Bea, and Juliet’s parents.  How Chris took the news of having a 5yr old son was just too easy for me, I suppose there are guys out there that would take the new that well, but I have not met anyone like that.  Bea is Juliet’s sister who is her shoulder to lean on and her support system.  A lot of Juliet’s insecurities come from how she was raised and they bleed over into her ability to decide to stay or to run, when she is unsure of what the future holds.

All in all this is a great beach read and would recommend to anyone looking for a feel good romance HEA book.
