    4.5 stars- definitely one that left an impression

    I really loved New Hand, so much so that it hovered close to the 5 star mark much of the time. I hadn’t read any books from The Bluewater Bay series so I began this title with minimal expectations, though I was a little nervous I’d be lost as this is the final book of the series. While the story contains a few cameos from other characters in the series, some playing larger parts than others, New Hand can easily be read and enjoyed as a standalone as I did. New Hand was one of those books that flowed so well, it was hard for me to put down. The banter between characters was smooth and faster paced, the narrative easy, and the story interesting. I was immediately hooked by Garrett and Jesse, and I loved the way Miss Witt infused their personalities into the characters’ points of view, making their personalities pop. Though this is a May-December romance, the difference in age wasn’t much of a focus with the other scenarios facing the couple. When a leading character is a widower, I’m always curious as to how the author will approach that past relationship and I think New Hand is one of the better books I’ve read dealing with the loss of a partner. While this wasn’t a depressing read, it was emotional- leaving me teary eyed more than once. Garrett is still processing the death of his husband when he first meets Jesse and though Miss Witt didn’t let the story or characters get lost in the grief, she also doesn’t avoid the pain or sweep the less than bubbly parts under the rug. It was balanced, touching on so many emotions that it was impossible not to feel all those highs and lows right along with the characters. I especially liked that the story incorporated things you might not think of, such as how Jesse processed Garrett being a widower and dealt with learning about Sean, Garrett’s deceased husband. Sometimes it did feel as though Sean was a third leading character in the story, but that inclusion leant believability to their story and certainly made this a book I'll remember. I don’t know that I’d characterize New Hand as a hurt/comfort romance, but it definitely had elements of that. The emotion in this book certainly is palpable and I really enjoyed getting to know the characters, seeing them come together, grow, and ultimately reach a good resolution that left me with a smile on my face. I’d wager that this will be one of the more memorable books I’ll read over the coming year. *eARC received via Netgalley. The author and publisher had no influence over this review*
