Great solid opener to this new small-town romance series from Ed
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
I do like Ed Davies’ style of writing and the way there’s always a sweetness at the heart of the narrative.
I’ve only not rated this one higher because I felt the middle part of the book had an odd pacing where all of a sudden, both Jesse and Finn started second-guessing and doubting each other.
I say odd because, up to that point, they’d been communicating pretty well and moving their relationship on in a steady and believable manner even though only a short period of time had passed.
The major conflict in the book is going to run through the series if I understand it right. The tensions coming from the fall out between two sides of the Hart family.
It all wrapped up a little neatly here but, honestly, I didn’t care too much about that because Jesse and Finn were just too cute together and rather steamy.
Things happen over a fairly short time period but, again it didn’t feel instalove-y because the chemistry between them was clear.
Now I’ve just been surprised at who the next book is about as Rain Hart, Finn’s cousin, is the next family member under the spotlight but his love interest isn’t who I expected.
Om looking forward to seeing where Hart’s Bay goes next.
