Kayla Holmes, along with her sisters, inherited guest cottages in the Keys after their stepfather died.

So how should I start this ? There is so much emotion in this story that it’s coming a bit difficult to put in words. This is such a great start for the series. It is emotional, it made me cry but it also inspired me. Every loss can become a new beginning. Every heart can mend, should we want to. And most importantly, we owe tis to our loved ones, the ones that are watching us from someplace else.
Our main characters, Kayla and Sean, are both trying to move on from their own losses. Both dealing with the pain in their own ways, they find a way to each other’s hearts. Their story made me cry at times, but as well brought a smile to my lips. The way Kayla managed to peal Sean’s “insufferable” layers and her determination to help him somehow inspired me.
I loved the writing very much. It was expressive and it reached my heart so easily. We have the exact dose of most of the feelings available to keep us in a good mood. Even if there is a sad side to the story, both characters lift one another up. The narrator was a great plus as well. So I do believe this was a good quality audiobook, for which I am most grateful.
I cannot wait to listen to the audiobooks for the other books in the series! Thanks to Jess, I will be reviewing the other ones as well. So book one is finished, time for book two now J See you guys with my next review !
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Patrice Wilton. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
