A lakeside summer, a new beginning…

Samantha Fremont has been struggling with the weight of her mother’s expectations for years. But now that her mother has passed away, it’s time for Sam to be bold and finally establish the fashion design business she’s always dreamed of. And the perfect opportunity has fallen into her lap. Her friend’s getting married and has asked Sam to create her wedding dress…if only she can avoid the bride’s infuriating brother, who’s temporarily the boy next door.

Ian Summerhill knows a sabbatical in Haven Point is exactly what he and his children need to recover from their mother’s death. His romantic relationship with his ex-wife may have ended years ago, but caring for her throughout her illness broke his heart. All he wants is to watch his little sister walk down the aisle and to see his kids smile again. And somehow his lovely new neighbor is instrumental in both. But as their uneasy truce blossoms into a genuine friendship and more, Ian has obligations in England he can’t ignore—and a secret that threatens the fragile trust he and Sam have built.


Sweet and satisfying! With book eleven in her always beloved Haven Point series RaeAnne Thayne gives Samantha Fremont the happily ever after she’s been yearning for over the years. The characters are quick to draw the reader in, the children and puppies in the story line are delightful and the romance is sweet.

Samantha has been someone we’ve watched as she tried to find love for years as she wavered under her mother’s overpowering thumb. Now she’s lost a bit now that her mother is gone as she tries to find her knew norm and begins to flourish on her own.

Ian is quite attention grabbing. His kids are adorable, he’s secret royalty and he’s trying to figure out how to make sure his children heal after losing their mother.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance set in a small town setting with a large cast of interwoven characters who are like family to each other. There’s always a sweet, happy ending in Haven Point!
