The Bad Boy of Butterfly Harbor
Can people truly change?
Two things keep Holly Campbell grounded: her precocious son and preserving her forty-year-old family diner in the face of expansion and change. She doesn’t need a blast from the past like Luke Saxon, who’s back in Butterfly Harbor after more than a decade away. The hard-luck kid who nearly destroyed her family, leaving her to pick up the pieces, is taking over as sheriff. She can’t trust him, even if Luke’s ideas for the town’s upcoming anniversary seem to show he’s trying to give back to their community. Has Butterfly Harbor found its unlikely savior? And has the widowed single mother finally found a man she can believe in, rely on…and love?
I loved this book! For one thing, it was totally believable. You know sometimes you read a book and you think, “This totally cannot happen.” Well, this story totally could.
There are people in all of our lives that we have a hard time forgiving for one reason or another. I do believe that we need to forgive for our sake’s more than that of the person who hurt us. It does things to you to hold onto that bitterness. That is what Holly has been doing ever since her father was injured in a horrible accident years ago. She’s been blaming Luke and holding onto a ton of hurt. But she’s been wrong. She never knew the whole story. That happens, doesn’t it?
I love how real the characters in this story are. They are very well-developed and totally make you feel like you know them in real life. I love the setting of the story and the story itself. It is a clean book, yet it is filled with true romance. I love that! It is so amazing to see the forgiveness and love once Holly finds out that she’s been looking at the situation through her own bitterness and not looking for the truth. The supporting characters in the story are just as great as the main characters. I can’t wait to read the following books in this series. I highly recommend it!
About the Author
USA Today and national bestselling author Anna J. Stewart can’t remember a time she didn’t have a book in her hands or a story in her head. Early obsessions with Star Wars, Star Trek and Wonder Woman set her on the path to creating fun, funny, and family centric romances with happily ever afters for the independent heroines she writes for both Harlequin and Berkley. Anna lives in Northern California where she deals with a serious Supernatural & Sherlock addiction, surrounds herself with friends and family and tolerates an overly affectionate cat named Snickers (or perhaps it’s Snickers who tolerates her).
