    Lovely Reunited Lovers Story!

    This is a wonderfully written second chance at love story, telling of the romance between Rafe and Olivia. Married six years ago after a whirlwind courtship, their expectations of each other were not tempered in reality, resulting in a divorce. Still living in the same small town and carrying strong feelings for each other, Olivia chooses to accept a new position despite feeling that leaving town would be better for her emotionally than constantly seeing Rafe. Will this decision give them the time and chance they need to open their hearts to each other again? There are so many things to love about this story that it's hard to know where to start! One of the things I really enjoy about Zoe's writing is that she has a knack for not sugar coating reality. Marriage is hard. Marriage takes work. Marriage needs understanding and patience. And when a marriage fails, it is rarely the fault of only one party. In this story both Olivia and Rafe are finally able to admit to themselves and to each other that they both made mistakes. Bedroom compatibility had never been the problem and the sexual tension still exists and flourishes whenever they are together. Zoe crafts love scenes between them that are sensual and emotional, full of the reality of the love they still share for each other even if they aren't still married. Rafe is a handsome, caring man, dedicated to his family and his town and trying to balance that with his commitment to his marriage. He knows that he has failed Olivia and is willing to do anything to have her give him another chance. Olivia is friendly, outgoing, and her divorce from Rafe was out of a sense of desperation that he didn't value her enough over his other obligations. When she takes on a new career path, it occurs to her that part of her marriage problems came about because she resented Rafe's time away from her instead of finding something to fulfill those hours for herself. As she comes to understand this she also comes to understand Rafe better, and this understanding leads her to realize that she could have been a better partner too. The progress of their romance as they rekindle old feelings was wonderful to read. The secondary characters play important roles in the story as well. Rafe's mother, an Italian busybody, is the quintessential interfering mother-in-law. I liked that she was portrayed that way as it highlighted one of the many problems that married couples often face. Rafe's police and army colleagues are key to the plot as well, highlighting the tension and realities of the stresses faced on the job. While there were action and suspenseful scenes, there were also moments of humour and good natured camaraderie. My overall impression of this book is that it is a warm, touching love story full of sensuality, romance and emotional moments. A wonderful start to a new series! 5 stars!

    Love these books!

    I am totally in love with all of these books! Finding an author who celebrates our Canadian roots if fantastic. All of Zoe's characters are believable and they encounter real-life situations and emotions. I can't wait to see where she will take us next!

    Love in a small town

    Very good read. Sometimes a little too explicit but good story line. Main characters are described very well but not enough interaction with the other characters. Do not get some sense of who they really are and how they interact with the main ones.
