connection neither expected.
Catherine Cowles takes us back to the small town of Sutter Lake to bring us one of the most heartwarming, swoon worthy romances filled with elements of suspense and mystery.
As I’m writing this review, my HEART IS SO FREAKING FULL! This love story was so breathtaking! So much passion, heart and soul-stirring moments in these pages.
Tessa was such a strong heroine and her story was so encouraging and inspirational. I won’t go into details but in her former life before Sutter Lake, she was in a very abusive relationship. She keeps to herself and holds on to her secrets very tightly. She may seem meek and mild but this woman has such a tower of quiet strength that you cannot help but admire. Liam is the rockstar who has escaped to Sutter Lake to get a break from fame and find inspiration to write his music.
Liam is drawn to Tessa but knows he needs to tread carefully with her. He doesn’t know why she is so guarded but he gets that some man must have hurt her pretty bad for her to have such a level of distrust.Gah! This man! He was just absolute perfection! He was so patient, so kind and so tender with Tessa. I loved that while he had that obsessive need to protect his woman, he also helped her to empower herself. His ability to always be there for her as well as allow her to stand on her own too feet mad me FALL SO HARD for this man!
Liam and Tessa’s romance took time to build as Tessa let’s her walls fall to let him in. Their growing love was so sweet and their sexual chemistry was so palpable. Amidst this love story we have a suspenseful storyline and a few plot twists that keep the whole book that much more entertaining. I seriously LOVE this couple so much! They have my heart and I highly recommend this small town romance!
