Her husband (Gary) was killed in the line of duty leaving Lynn Danfort to raise their two kids. She had hoped that their godfather, Gary’s partner, her friend (Ryder Matthews) would help her through that most difficult time, the problem was that it was a difficult time for him as well. After three years away, Ryder came back to Seattle with the knowledge that he was in love with his partners wife long before his partners death. The goal was in place, create a new family for him with Lynn and her kids, but convincing the now independent and self sufficient women he loved to have the same dreams might be a little tricky.
***3 - Very classic love story, we don’t get to see Ryder fall in love, he just shows up that way. The biggest hurdle that they have to overcome is his pride. Emotional, but the intimate moments are very charged and quite hot for a Debbie Macomber book. The tension was built up and up and then it was all concluded nice a neat so quick and easy at the end, little bit of a let down just because it happened so effortlessly. This is a very early Debbie Macomber, I really enjoy so many of her books and this one is no different in that aspect.
