Is he married or isn’t he?
Years ago, a Dear John letter and then an IED explosion overseas rocked Davis Donnelly’s world and left him unclear about his marital status. He’d signed divorce papers, but broken mentally and physically, he’d never bothered to find out if his marriage actually ended. Now that he’s about to start a new position as an outreach minister, it’s time to settle things once and for all. At the moment he tracks down his wife—or former wife?—she takes a tumble while chasing a little boy. Her son. And that’s when life flips upside down.
Joy Jennings Donnelly made her share of mistakes. But one thing she never considered a mistake was her child, and she’ll do anything to protect him. Even keep his paternity a secret.
When she’s suddenly injured with not a soul to help her or her son, Joy is forced to rely on the man who has the most reasons to hate her.
my point of view:
I get so excited when I see a new story from Janet Ferguson, and you will too, once you have read one! This Coastal Hearts series holds a truly special place in my heart. So many of us have had our lives touched by addiction of a close friend or family member. I am certainly no exception. These books have reached deep into my heart and will not be forgotten. I am also a sucker for kids and military hero’s, so needless to say, this one story wraps it all in one for me.
Davis and Joy are two characters that actually had me laughing out loud and crying along with them. Baby Hankie just steals your heart with his incredible antics and over all behavior! Reminded me all too well of my own son when he was that age, hahaha! But beyond all the excitement and playfulness, at the heart of the story is Davis trying to do the right thing, and Joy, God Bless her, trying to find her way in the world.
This was definitely one story that had me reading as fast as possible to get to the end…..but then, sad to have it end, lol. Only a true reader will understand my conundrum! I can hardly wait for the next book in the series so I can catch up with all these wonderful people and see what is next in store for this lovely Coastal community! Thank you, Janet!
