Six years. Two break-ups. One divorce. They should be over each other.
Rafe Minelli knows better than to tell his wife no, particularly since they aren’t married anymore. She can’t hightail it out of town, though, not when they’ve finally broken through the post-divorce cold war status quo.
Olivia Minelli needs to leave Pine Harbour. It’s just too hard to see Rafe moving on without her – even if he says he doesn’t want to. But when a new and exciting job falls into her lap, she needs to choose: protect her heart, or take the new job and risk getting emotionally entangled with her ex-husband. Again.
This story may take place in a small town, but there’s nothing small about the love affair between Rafe and Liv.
Rafe is determined to win back the affections of his ex-wife. He starts off by making a colossal mistake but more than makes up for it. His romantic acts are the reason why romance books are written.
I really like feel of the small town in this book. It doesn’t offer unfathomable opportunities but instead makes each act between Rafe and Liv more about love than unrealistic adventures. Both Rafe and Liv need to find a way to be better within the construct of their professional lives. There isn’t any throwing down the gauntlet and completely uprooting and making drastic life changes. It is beautifully real.
Simply, this is a real, lovely romance novel.
