Thank you Montlake for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself. The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna’s life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them. The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.
I’ve read quite a few “CoHo” books, so I went into this one with some expectations. They definitely lived up to them. As per usual, once I start one of her books, I can’t stop. I can devour them in 2 hours, much like I did this one. Cue the emotional roller coaster! I loved everything about this book, except there was a romance scene in the beginning that I felt was completely rushed and unrealistic. Even though it was necessary for the rest of the story, I still couldn’t seem to shake it. Regardless, it’s a book I can see myself reading again. I will forever read a Colleen Hoover book.
