This is the kind of book that you curl up on the sofa with and totally allow yourself to get transformed in the story.
Cat returns home to the town she grew up in. Life didn’t necessarily turn out the way she expected but she is happy to be back with her family. The love and support will help her get through the rough time being a single mother. Her daughter, Amy, needs stability and wants to be a part of the boys Hockey team. Reluctantly, Cat agrees and runs into the new coach, Luc.
Luc is back home after suffering from the lost of his wife. He has a tremendous amount of guilt. Cat has always harbored a crush on Luc. He was the star athlete in their town. Cat and Amy bring a joy to his life that he thought he lost completely. However, the burden of not being there for his deceased wife holds him mentally hostage.
Luc’s story is so soul-crushing and you just want for him to find happiness again. Cat and Amy help heal Luc and give them a sense of stability that they need. The path to happiness is not an easy one. There are elements of the story that feels a bit of chick-lit but that is maybe because there is more to the story than just romance. Amy is not prepared for her mother to date but she loves Luc. There is the family interaction and Amy is constantly getting into something.
There are a ton of characters and I wanted to get to know all of them. This can be read as a standalone. However, I think it is best to read the other books in the series which I plan to do.
Overall, if you are looking for a small town romance and a second chance love story, this is the perfect book to bring you some cheer.
