I received a complimentary ARC from Author in exchange for an honest review.
Max and Delia’s love story in Secrets at the Riverview Inn by Molly O’Keefe, book 2 in the Riverview Inn series, was an emotional and enjoyable tale that holds a number of secrets.
Delia divorced her abusive husband, a man of the law who was partook in criminal behavior, and used their daughter as a power ploy to control Delia as he saw fit.
The magic of the Riverview Inn, along with her job as a massage therapist provides Delia a happiness she never expected and time to heal her damaged relationship with her eight-year-old daughter, Josie. Working at the inn gives Delia a purpose, allows for friendships, as well as offers an exciting and forbidden attraction to the mysterious Max Mitchell.
Max was a police officer who suffered a career ending injury. Max kept to himself, appearing grumpy to those who encountered him. Delia and Josie were able to break through every obstacle he constructed to protect himself. The attraction and chemistry he and Delia shared were out of this world and Max was the only one able to connect with Josie, understanding the little girl.
When Delia’s ex-husband finds them, everyone will need to make difficult choices in order to protect and save their lives. We also meet Max and Gabe’s mother, who left them when they were young children, and learn a little about that secret too.
Ms. O’Keefe wrote a “can’t put down,” emotional, second chance romance that should not be missed. This tale abounds with emotions, sexual chemistry, humor, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters giving Max and Delia a chance at love, a family, and forever. I highly recommend Secrets at the Riverview Inn to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
