This is the second book in the Sequoia Lake series, and can easily be read as a stand alone book, however, Liv and Paxton were introduced in the previous book and I had been very intrigued by their story and was glad they were front and center for this book. I really enjoyed how Paxton's story played out and how Ford's relationship with him played into it as well as the character growth for Liz along with her son getting past the death of her husband and his father. Notice how I am a paragraph into this review and I haven't even mentioned the romance between Liv and Ford? That isn't because it wasn't important or well done, it is just because Adair write such interesting characters that there is so much more going on than just an unlikely romance, which is why I love this author.
Anyone looking for a great story with a lot of romance and heart should read this book.
OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
