Savannah Moore arrives in Eternity Springs alone, determined to put her troubled past behind her. Her handcrafted-soap shop fits right in with the magic of this warm and welcoming community—but the sexy, suspicious local sheriff promises to upset her hard-won happiness.
Zach Turner knows this woman means trouble: Maybe to his town. Possibly to his friends. Definitely to his heart. Something about this simmering Southern beauty does crazy things to his committed bachelor status, taunting him with possibilities far beyond his dedication to his sometimes dangerous job. So when Savannah’s dark past follows her to town, wreaking havoc with both their lives, Zach will fight for all he’s worth—for a love he can’t afford to lose.
I always enjoy this series and this one was no exception. It was the turn of Zach this time, the local sheriff. He is teamed up with innocent but convicted ex convict Savannah. Many of the characters from previous books have a small part to play in this book as well.
I liked these characters, and hopefully Gabi, a new deputy, working with Zach will get her own story. A few new other characters were also introduced and perhaps they will have further parts to play in future stories. There was one small surprise I actually didn't see coming at the end.
I enjoyed the role that Savannah's brother played in this book and he added interest to the story, as well as playing a substantial part in the plot.
I thought the story ended too abruptly, I like things all tidied up, but as a reader was left slightly hanging. However I know these things are sure to be tidied up in future books. I just don't like that way as much.
If you like small town communities and haven't tried this series - try them.
