Welcome to Sunset Harbor, Washington, nestled on beautiful and remote Madrona Island, where the main entertainment on Friday nights is a high school football game, everyone knows everyone’s business, the pace is slow, and the residents wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
Meet a wounded warrior suffering from paralyzing guilt and a woman pining for her dead husband–both damaged souls craving comfort for a moment or a lifetime.
Mandy Walters’ husband died a hero in the Middle East while saving another man. Three years later, Mandy is struggling to move on and make a viable business of her partially remodeled bed and breakfast on Madrona Island. When a mysterious, handsome stranger shows up and offers to finish her remodel in exchange for room and board, Mandy reluctantly accepts, needing his assistance more than she’ll admit.
Brody Jenson has come to the island to pay a debt, even though it’s taken him three long years. Reluctant to tell Mandy he’s the one her husband died saving, he sets himself up to help her, but she helps him just as much. When the time comes to leave, Brody is torn between this loving woman and his driving desire to conquer the next challenge.
Can the laid-back island life heal a damaged, adrenaline junkie like Brody or must he walk away to save them both?
Mandy lost the love of her life. She is trying to survive and keep her dreams from slipping through her fingers. Brody, out of guilt and obligation, goes to see his buddy’s widow. When he sees the help she needs and not getting it from anyone else, he takes it upon himself to help her.
I love how broken these two characters are and that they know it. I love that it takes giving into each other that heals them. This is a very touching story that warms my heart. I look forward to more in this series. 5 Hearts!
