    Free to Love--an emotion-packed story!

    A sensitive, emotionally packed read of a widow and her brother-in-law getting to their HEA. Usually, a story in this genre could leave a lot lacking, but not in this case. This was definitely an engaging read, and Sydell has traversed the extra mile, to patch up all the holes, and provide a solid footing for why this plot makes sense. Two people, both with a strong sense of duty, one trying to overcome her mishap and pick up the pieces of her life, and Austin, who tries to make good his promise to his deceased fireman brother. Though the volunteering and environmental backdrop came on strong at times, it definitely provided a common thread which the main protagonists agreed on, and thus doing its bit in cementing the relationship between Austin and Joanne. I definitely liked this second chance HEA read, and will look for more books from Sydell.

    Great romance

    Kyle & Jo are a newly married couple when Kyle a firefighter is killed in a fire. Jo trying to struggle through the loss can no longer live with the loss living where it happened & moves back to her hometown where her aunt & support is. Kyle's family has thrown themselves into work to survive. So, before moving back she secures a job in her field of study & buys a fixer upper on the beach. Within weeks though Kyle's brother Austin appears after months of no contact. It instantly stirs raw feelings within her & many question of why he is there, why he would track her down & feelings of guilt for not telling anyone she was going. Emotions run high for them both & sparks fly. This is such a raw emotion at times & others just a peaceful experience. I did feel at times I was getting a Eco lesson but it wasn't heavy handed. Overall, totally enjoyed this story.

    Wonderful Love Story

    Anyone who reads any of Sydell Voeller's romances is aware of several things. One is that she is an outstanding writer. Her characterizations are excellent, not to mention she has a special way of appealing to the senses. The reader feels as if she is there. I've never been to Oregon, but after reading Ms. Voeller's story, I want to get on the next plane and visit. "Free to Love" is the story of Joanna, who lost her firefighter husband Kyle in a deadly fire. When Kyle's brother comes to visit, she develops an attraction for him but fights this attraction. She feels that it would be a betrayal of her love for her husband to develop any warm feelings for his brother, Austin, who is a veternarian. Joanna and Austin share a love for Oregon sea life, and this brings them together. But the more circumstances bring Joanna and Austin together, the more she finds herself drawn to him. This romance cleverly reveals the conflict between Joanna and Austin, but above all, the reader sees the enduring power of love.

    Wonderful love story, told with sensitivity and in

    Pardon me while I dine on a healthy dose of crow. Normally, (and I've never hidden the fact) I dislike the "I'm in love with my brother-in-law" trope. And yet...Sydell Voeller did the impossible. She made me love her characters and believe they belonged together. It's a testament to the emotional pull she created that I couldn't stop turning pages. Joanna is a plucky heroine in a tough situation: her firefighter husband, Kyle, died saving kids from a fire. She's now moved to a small town in the Pacific Northwest to rebuild her life and create a new normal. Enter Kyle's brother, Austin, who made a promise to his brother he's intent on keeping, despite the difficulty of being in close proximity to Jo. The author makes these two work hard for their HEA and there's an underlying reminder to the reader about the fragility of nature and mankind's often senseless destruction. A wonderful love story, told with sensitivity and intelligence.
