Brynn Haywood's impulsive marriage to a man she'd known less than 24 hours leaves her with deep regret. She flees to Cape Cod, finding refuge with her loyal friend, Dawn Dixon. As Brynn grapples with her emotions, Dawn acts swiftly, eager to help secure a lawyer for her through her mother Marnie's good friend, Lincoln Hayes. However, Lincoln's preoccupation with his daughter's lavish wedding brings unexpected challenges.

The arrival of Lincoln's estranged son, Bear Hayes, stirs the waters further. Alarmed by his father's extravagant generosity toward the Dixon family, Bear ignites friction between Marnie and Lincoln. As the wedding day arrives, Lincoln vanishes--and an unwelcome guest makes a surprise appearance.

My Thoughts 

I loved all the ice cream quotes sprinkled at the beginning of each chapter! Definitely made you crave for your own bowl full of your favorite! Despite this being part of a series I did not have any problems following along so I definitely think that this can be a stand alone. This was a different type of trope for a Christian Fiction book. I mean in this one we meet Brynn who marries a guy she meets while in a meeting in Vegas and then in a moment of realization and panic she leaves him without a word. 

Right away I knew who the mystery man was which kind of ruined it for me because I like a good mystery but it didn't take away from enjoying the story. Through all that happens Brynn does find who she truly is and what she wants to do with her life. Her best friend Dawn tries to talk he out of this new path but it is to no avail. Honestly I found Dawn to be aggravating and she drove me a bit crazy with her antics. Now, this may be the part where reading the previous book may have been helpful just to know a little more background on the characters that come in throughout this story. 

There are other storylines happening while we learn more about Brynn and I absolutely loved reading more about them. The author does a great job at weaving faith and the theme of forgiveness throughout the story. Although I do enjoy her Amish stories I think she does a great job with these contemporary novels. If you are looking for a new series to start, grab some ice cream and grab this one!

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