My Review:

 Part 2 of this trilogy continues with the bittersweet love story of a young widowed mother finding new love with a divorced young father.  I always find it so refreshing to read a romance novel when the conflict in the story is external rather than between the couple.  This book is written in narrative form from four different points of view, although it is easy to maintain the flow and I was never confused.  Ms. Kennedy does an excellent job of getting the point across of the sacrifices young military families make during deployments, as well as the aftermath of their injuries and loss, without beating us over the head with it.  I also particularly enjoy how she handles the dream visitations and the messages Emma receives from her dead husband.  This series has been sweet and tender as well as heart rendering.

First and foremost I am a wife, mother and grandmother.
I am also a nurse and a new author.
I moved to sunny Florida in 2006 and never looked back. I love fresh squeezed lemonade, crushed ice, teacups, wineglasses, non-franchise restaurants, ice cream cones, boating, picnics, cookouts, throwing parties, lace, white wine, mojitos, strawberry margaritas, white linen tablecloths, fresh flowers and Pinterest. I also love to read and write and to spend time with my family. My books thus far, have been inspired by the things I love and the people who influence me, every single day to be a better person.
