Arc from Net Galley!
This isn't the same cover as Net Galley but they are equally good.
This is my first time reading this author and it won't be my last!
This is a story about Isabel who has had a tough break at love. You see her dead husband was a drug dealer. Shocking I know, imagine her surprise!
She has all but given up on the notion that she will ever have love again. Her first priority is her daughter Suzie and the land that she takes care of.
While digging in her beautiful garden she is in shock and horror when her shovel hits a hard briefcase. A briefcase that the police are looking for. A briefcase that puts her right back in the middle of danger.
Enter Lt. Linc Heller. The cop assigned to her case when he ex died. It was up to him to see what she really knew. Now he's back again. This time he wants to show her that love really does exist. I mean their start up relationship was not good. He's a cop he had to make sure that she really didn't know anything!
What I loved most about this is that Isabel put her daughter first. But Linc wants to be there not only for her but for her daughter. He wants her to see that you can have love with everything else.
I did get angry and frustrated. But it was that anger that made me continue reading to make sure they got their HEA. Just when you think everything is easy peasy! Boom it's not. But in the end it did work out and I got a love story!
I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
Isabel Garcia's former husband (he died) was a criminal. Isabel had a rough go of it when her husband was alive. Now she has been trying to get back on track but while digging in her yard she found what seems to be related to her husband's old life. She calls Linc Heller a detective/Cop that was working on her husband's case to inform him of her new findings. Linc has been atttracted to Isabel since their first meeting but thinks that she wasn't read to move on or that she can get past him working on her former husbands case. But once Linc sees her again and see that she is trying to move forward he takes the next step to start being in Isabel's and her daughter's life.
This is a really good, sweet easy to read book.
This review is based on an ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.
Some of the Spanish dialogue was a little hard for me to follow. I didn't get very attached to the characters. In order for me to really enjoy a book, I need to connect with the characters. The author herself has a lot of talent, but this book didn't hold much interest for me.
Isabel Garcia found a shocking piece of evidence tying to her dead husband's previous criminal activities while digging in her backyard. She asked for help from Detective Lincoln Heller whom she had first worked with after her spouse died. Linc was evidently attracted to her, but Isabel disregarded whatever she felt for him because she didn't approve of his dangerous profession. Being in the task force chasing criminals sure invited a lot of peril and death threats, something Isabel no longer wanted to experienced now that she was a widow. and a single parent to her precious child.
Linc was determined to make her see what she'd been missing and he wooed her to prove his feelings for her. But did Linc really stand a chance with Isabel when he reminded her of the risks she had to go through over and over again?
I had a good time reading this story, the characters seemed real to me. Like it or not, there are indeed some wives who are wary of the opposite sex after a bitter experience with their husbands. It never is easy to trust someone else again. Sophia Knightly was able to get the feelings right, the story felt right as well. Easy to read, pacing was steady and so far, the romance was gentle and had me sighing with a smile in the end.
Thanks to Netgalley for providing me a copy of an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first book by this author and after reading this book, I see myself reading more books by her in the future.
Isabel Garcia's ex dead husband turns out to be drug dealer, and that's how she comes in contact with Lt. Linc Hellar. And there are sparks between them but Isabel is not ready to admit it. Because she was already once burned and now there is her 5 year old daughter in the equation too. So anxious Isabel doesn't want to take risk with Linc being in a risky line of duty and losing him.
Linc is really a hard working guy and a very sweet guy. He always turns up to help Isabel whether it is with her daughter or to help her in her farm in the cold weather. He was really understanding and sweet with not only just Isabel but even with her daughter.
This is the story of Isabel and how she struggles with her relationship with Linc and how everything ties up in the end. It was a sweet little story with great side characters. Makes you want to read their story as well in the series.
