Review: Only You by Susan May Warren

Well, I loved this wonderful novella that kicks off the Deep Haven Collection series. It is a return to the author’s beloved, fictional town of Deep Haven and the start of a series that is written by new authors in collaboration with Susan May Warren.

These two main characters are side characters from some earlier novels and I absolutely adored them and seeing their story come to life.

Ree has loved Seth for years, but he was always in love with and got his heart broken by her best friend. Seth returned to Deep Haven but did not plan to stay any longer than necessary. I loved the way he began to fall for Ree and also the way his heart began to open to his family and Deep Haven once again.

The romantic chemistry between these two was fantastic and made for such a beautiful love story. I am hoping to see Seth and Ree as side characters in some in the future books so that I can see how things are going for them. I also know that this is a novella that I will definitely be reading again and again.

He ran from his broken heart…

Seth Turnquist never thought his heart would mend after being shattered by his former love, Amelia Christiansen. But three years away from Deep Haven fighting fires as a smokejumper have burned her away, leaving fresh soil for a new love. Still, he’s ready to put Deep Haven in his rearview mirror for good, which means selling the custom log home he built for Amelia and walking away from the family business. But what he doesn’t realize is that the seeds for a second chance have already been planted…

She loved him from the sidelines…

Ree Zimmerman couldn’t let herself love Seth—not when he was her best friend’s boyfriend. And after Amelia broke his heart, there simply wasn’t anything left in him for Ree except friendship. But that never stopped Ree from dreaming of a happily ever after with the lumberjack from Deep Haven. When he returns home for his grandfather’s birthday, she’s not about to let him walk away, again…

Return to Deep Haven in this charming homecoming story about the second chances that await us when we let the past go.
