I am really enjoying this series and the deep characters in these books. Tressa is such a complicated woman. She is strong, stubborn, and has an unending devotion to her son. Although she is a widowed mother, she is still very young and is scared of ever being under a man’s control again. And she doesn’t know how she will ever make it out from under her dead husband’s debts.
Mac has his own issues to deal with. There are some who distrust him because of his father. There are others who recognize the honorable man he is. But Mac has his sights set on getting out of Eagle Harbor and starting over.
Both of these characters were wonderful! I liked Tressa for her strength, yet also felt for her in her insecurities. Even in book two, Tressa’s insecurities follow her and cause some issues in her marriage. Mac was a great character! I loved the way he tried to take care of Tressa and her son throughout the story. He also had a great sense of humor. He was just an all around honorable guy.
Another thing I enjoyed in both books one and two was that the reader gets to know the main characters, but also meets and connects with a few side characters who have interesting stories of their own. It makes this town feel realistic and makes me want to read more about the many people I have met. (5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Tressa Danell is finished with men—from the wastrel who left her a widow, to the smelly trapper who keeps proposing, to the banker who wants to repossess her bakery. Every hour is spent working to pay off her late husband’s debt and keep a roof over her son’s head, though it’s doubtful she can do both for very long. But one thing’s certain—she’ll never be beholden to a man again.
Tired of living in a small town that blames him for actions his father committed ten years ago, Mac Oakton is scheduled to leave Eagle Harbor. So why does the pretty widow at the bakery keep tugging at his heart? He can’t get involved in her predicament when he’ll only be around for two more weeks.
But when Tressa’s burdens overwhelm her, they both face a decision. Can Mac set his own plans aside to help? And can Tressa accept his support if that means giving up her independence . . . and being obligated to a man again?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Her husband pastors a small church in Michigan’s rugged Upper Peninsula, where her family shares its ten wooded acres with black bears, wolves, coyotes, deer and bald eagles. Naomi and her family live only three miles from Lake Superior, where the scenery is beautiful and they average 200 inches of snow per winter. Naomi writes bold, dramatic stories containing passionate words and powerful journeys.
