REVIEW - Heartsong Cottage (Eternity Springs #10) by Emily March
Release Date: 3 November 2015
Daniel Garrett is no stranger to heartache or tragedy. Once a successful detective, his world fell apart with his son's murder and his wife's suicide. Leaving the police force, Daniel devotes his life to finding missing children, but when a case goes sour on the anniversary of his personal tragedy, he returns to Eternity Springs hoping for some of the town's fabled healing.
Shannon O'Toole isn't looking for romance. After her fiancé's death, she closed off her heart. But she can't deny the spark between her and a sexy stranger at a friend's wedding. Shannon has her own secrets and has no place in her life for a private detective, even one who moves her as much as Daniel. But when the pair are thrown together on a case, the magic of Eternity Springs just might give them a second chance.
My Opinion 4 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
This is the first book that i have read by this author and it can certainly be read as a stand alone, everything you need to know about other characters is explained to you so you don't miss anything.
With a cover geared up for Christmas however, i did expect more of the book to be centred around the holidays, but there was hardly a mention of the holidays.
The other thing i had a little trouble with is that it felt like the book was going on for ages and that at times things were over explained or that everything was being thrown at these characters.
Both have had a devastating loss and are trouble by their pasts, both having given up on a relationship like they had before.
This is an extremely clean book in which you have them kissing, but the sex scenes are very much glossed over. Certainly a major change from the books that i have been reading, which was a little disappointing.
Otherwise its a good read, i certainly brings you in, but some of the internal monologue can seem to repeat itself.
