After a scandal causes Dakota Jones to lose it all, she finds herself on a bus back home to Holly Grove Island, SC, with plans to lie low, reconnect with friends and family, and figure out her next steps. When she discovers her father has been keeping some health issues from her, including putting off a surgery, she stays in town to help, which means increased chances of running into her high school ex, Dexter Roberts. Dexter has only one regret and that’s the mistake he made in letting Dakota go. Her return to the island seems like a second chance, but then Dakota takes a temporary job that makes Dex her boss’s boss, and the no-fraternizing-with-employees rule may take away another shot at their still simmering feelings for each other.
VERDICT Ryan’s (Secret Heir Seduction) sweet and promising introduction to her new “Holly Grove Island” series is sure to warm readers up during the long winter. Dexter and Dakota’s second chance at love is absorbing and will be a welcome addition to the ever-favorite staple of big romances in small-town settings.
