He loved her then. Will she love him now?
When Mallory Barrows finds an old diary in a box of books, the story she finds within sends her on the hunt for the owner–and maybe more.
Theirs is a story ripped from a country song. A wedding, a former love presumed dead, her new love stepping aside. And over forty years later, their story is one few remember.
With Mallory determined to find the people in the pages of that diary, one couple is offered the second chance of a lifetime.
This “second-chance / seasoned romance” novel introduces the next island in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
The Independence Islands Series: beach reads aren’t just for summer anymore.
My thoughts: I loved this unique story about two characters who get a second chance at love! The heroine is an owner of a book store, so I instantly liked her. I enjoyed that there is a bit of mystery as Mallory comes across an old diary and begins to get wrapped up in the story. The narrator of the audiobook does a fantastic job of bringing the story to life! This is a well written story with some interesting history as well as a beautiful message of faith. I enjoyed returning to the Island with this story!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.
