Goodreads:  Single dad and Thunder Point's deputy sheriff "Mac" McCain has worked hard to keep everyone safe and happy. Now he's found his own happiness with Gina James. The longtime friends have always shared the challenges and rewards of raising their adolescent daughters. With an unexpected romance growing between them, they're feeling like teenagers themselves-suddenly they can't get enough of one another. 

And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac's long-lost-and not missed-ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning. They're wondering if their new feelings for each other can withstand the pressure...but they are not going down without a fight. 

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in the series that takes place on the Oregon coast, Robyn Carr takes this town to the next level and I couldn't even predict what she was going to do with this great cast of characters.  This book gave each of the characters in the town a focus and storyline to move them all forward a little.  I was glad to have more depth than just the surface area of learning the people and the town like the first book.

I absolutely loved that not only the adults, but also the teens took center stage at some point.  There were work problems, school problems and of course relationship problems.  The romance was perfect, not too much, but just enough to enjoy!  I think my favorite characters in this book were Gina and the sheriff Mac, to see where they were going to go was a lot of fun and their families were full of a lot of drama.

At times the issues and solutions were a little cheesy, but cheesy light and fun were exactly what I needed as my personal life was a little rocky.  I breezed right through this one and was left on a cliff wondering what was going to be next for a few of them.  I can not wait to see where she takes the town and the people in it in the next book.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (and sure we are going to get it!)
