For ex-soldier Seth Landry, Seaview Key seems like the perfect place to heal a broken heart…eventually. And when he rescues a beautiful woman on the beach, his nightmares about the past are eclipsed by daydreams about the future.
Neither Abby nor Seth are looking for forever, but powerful love has its own timetable. And taking a chance on the future will test their courage in ways neither of them could possibly have anticipated.

I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
For anyone who has read any of Sherryl Woods other work you will find that this book follows the same formula. You have a man and a woman with an attraction to each other but pasts and complications that interfere with the progress of a relationship.
First I have to say that I enjoyed reading about Seaview Key. There is something to be said about a small town atmosphere and the sense of community within it. I could picture myself being right at home sitting on Abby's porch, baking at the inn and eating fish sandwiches at the restaurant.
I enjoyed how Abby and Seth's relationship developed but at times I wished that it would speed along a little. It was understandable that there were doubts and insecurities because of their pasts but at times I felt like they analysed a little too much. It was a little frustrating at times. I also didn't understand Hannah's insecurities when it came to Abby being back in town. Yes she dated her husband but it was back when they were teenagers. There were marriages and children after that so her insecurities seemed a little extreme. It would have been nice to read a little bit more about their re-connection.
All in all it was a cute story about two people who discover that it is never too late to get the things in life that they desire. This was the third book by Woods that I have read and I'm sure it will not be the last.
