The problem with being related to everyone in town is that there is no one left to date…until now. But will this outsider survive his family?

Former soldier Veronica “Ronnie” Morales isn’t going to let her kid brother, Tiago, get pulled into the gangs of Minneapolis, so, seeking safety and a fresh start, she heads to sleepy Deep Haven on the north shore of Minnesota. She’s hoping to put down roots as the paramedic for the new Crisis Response Team, but it’s not easy to be the town outsider.

Fire Chief Peter Dahlquist is a peacemaker—he has to be. After all, he’s related to both of the Deep Haven dynasties—the Zimmermans and the Dahlquists, Deep Haven’s version of the Hatfields and the McCoys. Worse, Peter is the holdout vote for a landmark project, which also makes him the loneliest guy in town when both families demand that he pick sides. The only one who seems to understand his plight is the newcomer in town…his pretty, street-tough paramedic.

When Tiago finds himself caught up in small town shenanigans and the town blames Ronnie for tragedy, Peter is forced to pick sides. But will his choice cost him the home—and the woman—he loves?


I absolutely loved Susan May Warren's Deep Haven Collection so when this collection came out I was super excited. It was so good to return to the little town of Deep Haven and see some familiar faces. In her debut novel Michelle Sass Aleckson introduces us to some new characters.

Ronnie and her brother come tow town to start a new life. I must admit that although Ronnie to some may be a strong female character she drove me crazy. I could not connect with her at all. She was so rude and hard headed it grated on my nerves. She obviously has never heard the term "Kindness goes a long way or Kill them with Kindness" because she does completely the opposite. Peter was quite the leading man. Definitely hit all the qualities of a hero except for the indecisiveness that he possesses. He wanted everyone to get along and we all know that is not possible. So in that respect both of these characters are a match made in heaven because they are complete opposites. 

Overall I thought this book despite my disengagement with the characters was well written and I loved returning to Minnesota once again even if it was in a fictional town. 

My Rating: 3 Stars/Liked it

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.


After growing up on both the east and west coasts, Michelle now loves living the country life in central Minnesota with her own hero and four children. She rocks out to 80's music on a Saturday night, enjoys playing board games, and is a hopeless romantic. And if you're wondering, yes, Sass is her maiden name.

She writes contemporary romance with a dash of sass and suspense. Connect with her on her website:
