Could a surprise baby

Lead to a forever family?

Ineffective, shortsighted and self-centered—that’s what top family lawyer Leah Ellis thinks of Gil Hamilton. And that’s why she’s vying for his position as mayor of Butterfly Harbor. But when a six-month-old baby is left on Gil’s doorstep, he turns to her for help. Gil’s dedication to baby Eli shows Leah she was wrong about her rival. But can he win her vote for a future together?


A gorgeous, yet bittersweet conclusion! Butterfly Harbor quickly became a small town easy for a reader to sink their teeth into and remember each character throughout story after story like a homecoming each time we got to visit. With the final book in the series, I just knew Mayor Gil was going to somehow pull just the right inducement out of his pocket to make me fall hard for him and realize he wasn’t as bad as he’s been painted out to be all of these years … and he did not disappoint! I’m going to miss this series of characters, but I have wholeheartedly enjoyed each and every journey they have taken me along for!

Gil has been an attention grabbing character right from the start, but this book shows us a side to him we didn’t exactly get to see in the past. I really enjoyed watching his redemption come to life.

Leah is a real go-getter and has the town’s interests at heart, but she doesn’t know all that Gil has really been doing behind the scenes when she steps in to oust him as Mayor.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a small town romance filled to the top with heartfelt characters, emotional journeys and so many awe inspiring happily ever afters. I recommend you read the series in order for maximum enjoyment.
