Goodreads:  Years after betraying her, he’s back in Haven Point…and determined to uncover the truth

For the sake of her brother’s children, innkeeper Megan Hamilton has put her entire life on hold to become their guardian. The last person she wants to ever see again is Elliott Bailey, who she feels is responsible for her brother’s current predicament. But the heat between them is undeniable, and she agrees to help Elliott investigate the cold case that tore their family apart…as long as they keep their attraction under control.

Back home was the last place “temporarily” retired FBI agent and crime writer Elliott Bailey thought he’d end up. But until the Bureau calls him back, he’s got no place else to go, and nothing but time on his hands to write the true-crime book calling his name. Time to really find out what happened to Megan’s sister-in-law, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving Megan’s brother—Elliott’s former best friend—under a cloud of suspicion. Time to prove to Megan once and for all that they belong together, but first they’ll have to survive the secrets that someone wants to keep buried…

Kritters Thoughts:  RaeAnne Thayne and the Haven Point series is a series to start at the beginning, but as with all romance series you can hope in and out of this one.  There have been books in this series that I completely joined and ones that were just so so.  I loved this one!  

Megan Hamilton owns a small inn in town that has recently overcome a fire and is back up and running.  Elliott Bailey who is from a prominent family in town has returned and Megan is not quite excited for him to return, but of course if you are a romance reader you know that this will only fuel the flame!

I can't completely pinpoint what exactly it is about this book that I completely adored, but I just did.  I think it could have been the characters.  Megan was just a joy to read about and it was easy to root for her and hope for her journey to end on a positive note.  I also liked reading about Elliott Bailey.  I am married a detective, former police officer and I always like reading a book with a LEO at the center and watching their brains work on the job and off the job!

Again, this is a series that you can dip in and out of, but the control freak in me likes to start at the beginning and read it in order!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
