better life for herself and her ten-year-old nephew, Ben, she took a
chance and moved to the small town of Compass Cove. Now, the college
librarian is adapting to a new job, a new town, and living with her
feisty seventy-eight-year-old grandmother. Mia is determined to make it
all work, hoping the coastal hamlet gives both her and Ben the sense of
community, family and belonging they both want so much.
Miller, a retired NFL quarterback, has come back to Compass Cove to
start over after an injury puts an end to his high-octane life. Settling
into the small town routine proves to be a challenge, but his job
coaching at Jennings College gives him a sense of purpose, while keeping
him connected to the game he loves.
There couldn’t be two
people more different, yet the minute they meet, friends and family have
no doubt they belong together. Now if Mia and Adam can only get out or
their own way and embrace a little hometown magic, they can find the
happy ever after they both crave…
and heroine, Mia and Adam, not that it was difficult to do. These two
characters grew so much during their journey of finding their “true
north” and their true love. Mia gave up almost everything after her
sister’s suicide in order to take care of her nephew, Ben. To give him a
better life she moves to Compass Cove living with her grandmother after
taking a job at Jennings College. Former NFL quarterback, Adam became
Jennings College football coach after being injured in a car crash. Adam
helps Ben adjust to his new town, giving him confidence and working on
the athletic skills that were natural to Ben.
There is magic in
the town of Compass Cove, magic that helps Mia grow more self-assured
and Adam change his player ways. There is a definite chemistry and
attraction between these two. This story played with my emotions,
wondering if these two would find their happy, ever after. Also, there
were a number of aspects in Mia’s relationship with her mother that
resonated within me, being similar to me and my mother. I understood
her pain and lack of self worth.
I totally loved reading this
book and really had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Moon wrote a
wonderful story, drawing me in and not letting go until I turned the
last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers and cannot wait
for the next book in this amazing series.
