Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Second-grade teacher, Becca Haddaway, is weeks away from walking down the aisle when she learns that the Heron Island Elementary School is about to be shut down. In the midst of a whirlwind of wedding planning, she launches into a last-ditch effort to save it. But the one man who can help her is determined to make her question every decision she has ever made—including the man she’s about to marry.
Former Navy SEAL and son of the current Maryland governor, Colin Foley, is finally starting to feel whole again after losing his leg on a career-ending deployment in Afghanistan. After struggling for months to figure out what to do with his post-military life, he’s found a new mission—opening a rehab center for wounded veterans on the peaceful Chesapeake Bay island. All he needs now is a woman to share his new life with…and he knows exactly who he wants.
With a little help from the island’s magical wind chimes, can Colin convince Becca to change her mind before it’s too late?
What we say – review by Nikki Mason:
Fans of Sophie Moss’ Wind Chime Cafe will love this sequel, which follows a similar pattern and reunites the reader with some brilliant old friends from the small commuinity on Heron Island.
Whereas the first book followed the story of feisty single mum Annie, this story focuses on sweet school teacher Becca who is about to marry her childhood sweetheart Tom and reluctantly move away from the island. When Becca learns about plans to shut the school where she works, a haven for many of the local kids and a place that ties her to her late mother, Becca realises how important it is to her and plans a fight to keep it open, even if she does have to leave it behind. That means teaming up with the handsome and troubled ex SEAL Colin, whose politically powerful father might be able to save the day.
When Becca starts feeling a strong attraction to Colin, who plans to stay on the island and open a centre to help war veterans recover mentally and physically, she starts to feel hopelessly confused, especially when her friends have always felt that Tom was wrong for her. So should Becca hold onto her past and her mother’s memory, or her heart and connections to her beloved Heron Island?
I love the characters that Sophie Moss creates, even the background characters have thought out stories and they are complex, interesting and wholly believable, she even creates a sympathy for the ‘villains’. I think anyone reading her books would long to become a resident of Heron Island. My only reservation with this story was how similar it was to Wind Chime Cafe in format, but it was still very enjoyable and I can’t wait util Moss has completed the third
