This is definitely a feel-good romance. I liked the relaxed atmosphere at the Cabins in the Pines and although it was clear that there was another book that took place before this one, I had no trouble following along.
I listened to the audio book version and liked that there were two narrators, male and female. They switched off based on whose perspective was the prominent one in each chapter. I wasn’t a huge fan of the male narrator’s version of the women’s voice, however, I got used to it after awhile.
This was a sweet second-chance romance, and truly a second-chance at a life of love and happiness for Hope, rather than the stressful life she had been living the past few years. I was so frustrated with Hope’s father for most of the book, however, I was happy with the way things resolved between the two of them.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Once, they were in love with music—and each other.
Life took them in very different directions…
But a wedding in the pines brings them together.
Slater’s job has never been busier at Cabins in the Pines, the recently expanded resort. On top of everything else, he’s the best man for his boss’s upcoming wedding, and he’s trying to make sure everything goes perfectly. But there was one detail he didn’t plan on: the arrival of his ex-girlfriend, Hope.
Years ago, when Hope dated Slater, she dreamed of a musical career. Now, she’s working at her father’s financial firm, and he expects her to take over someday. Hope’s determined to make their conference at Cabins in the Pines a success…while ignoring her misgivings about her own future.
When Slater and Hope meet again, all their memories come rushing back—including the pain of their breakup. Could this unexpected interlude lead to a new beginning?
This charming second chance romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe.
