ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Then Came You
Series: Deep Haven Collection #4
Author: Rachel D. Russell presented by Susan May Warren
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date: July 6, 2021
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
He doesn’t need any trouble. She can’t seem to escape it.
Detective Daniel “Boone” Buckam is more than burned out. After fourteen stellar years on the job, one bad judgment call—and, fine, a whole lot of cynicism—has forced him into a mandatory vacation in Deep Haven. If he can get his head on straight, there’s a job as Police Chief waiting for him back in his Minneapolis suburb. And then, he meets Vivien.
Actress Vivien Calhoun isn’t really a drama queen. Sure, she gets swept up in the emotions of life—but please, she’s an actress. Or, um, was until a stalker made her flee the bright lights of Broadway. Now, she’s passionate about directing her local theater production. But when she accidentally ropes an uptight police detective on vacation into her cast, she can’t help but wonder if he might be the leading man she’s always longed for.
Boone can’t help but like Vivien. He might even have a type—vivacious and bubbly, with a penchant for attracting danger. He can smell trouble even if she can’t, and is pretty sure her stalker has hunted her all the way to Deep Haven. He’ll have to stay by her side—even if it means being in her silly play—to keep her safe. But Vivien is more than he expected as she helps him discover a part of him he’s locked away…the part that said he could never love again.
It’s summertime in Deep Haven, and the fun is heating up in this laugh-out-loud, charming story.
Then Came You is another wonderful jaunt back to one of my favorite towns, Deep Haven. And even though it was great to peek at characters from previous books, I believe that this story could be enjoyed even as a stand alone novel.
Boone and Vivien had a great meet cute! I enjoyed the way that event pretty much threw them romantically together in the eyes of all of the townspeople. But their connection really grew when they were able to get to know each other on their own time.
I will admit that Vivien drove me a bit nuts sometimes. She and Boone had differing backstories, yet they had some similar hurdles to overcome in their own lives that involved people’s perceptions of them and whether those perceptions mattered. I was mostly frustrated with Viv for not taking the threats that arose seriously. But, no worries. Boone is plenty serious for the both of them! This was a fun story and I look forward to reading more in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
