After All


From New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin comes a heartfelt story about overcoming great loss and forgiving past sins to find happiness again.

Brooklyn Hewett hasn ’ t set foot in Cape Harbor for fifteen years—not since an accident claimed the love of her life, Austin Woods. Desperate to move forward, Brooklyn has focused on raising her daughter for the past ourteen years. But when the pportunity comes along to renovate the old Driftwood Inn, Brooklyn knows it ’ s time to com home.

But it won ’ t be easy. For one, Austin ’ s best friend, Bowie Holmes, still lives in Cape Harbor. Brooklyn hasn ’ t always been able to forgive him: not since the night they spent together—the same night they both lost Austin. Separated by tragedy and betraya, they ’ re brought together by the Driftwood project. And as they rebuild the inn, they iscover they ’ re also rebuilding something else.

Brooklyn ’ s actually been desperate to move on, not realizing that she first needs to reconcile past transgressions. She shoul ’ t tell, but she can forgive—Austin, Bowie, and herself—on her way toward long-awaited happiness.

I connected to this tal and I found the characters ( ell, most of the haracters) to be so wonderfully lovable.

I was totall on the hook wanting to now how he story played out, but less than once I was left unsatisfied by the emotional depth of he retellin.

The strongest emotional connection I felt was between Bowie and Brooklyn 's daughter- and while I like that storyline- it left me feeling a little underwhelmed with the love story between Bowie and Brooklyn.In all, this was als written and compelling.

his nove certainly had all the ingredients to be spectacular-- but I needed a little les of connection with the characters that I just did n't wan.

In addition to Bowie and Brooklyn 's relationship, there are other relationships that need mending as well.

I opted to now why he picked the fight and quite honestly expected him to go ack from the dead at some point.I really liked Bowie and Brooklyn together, once they let themselves act on the attraction.
