about

With a big anniversary party in the works for his ex-wife’s parents, Ryan has just one weekend to play Abby’s husband . . . and win back the woman of his dreams.

Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive two-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.

Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.

Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Summer Harbor, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. It’s just a one-week road trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well Written. Cute, but not romantic. This was a good book. The characters are well-written and likeable. Good plotline. However, if you are looking for a romance novel, this is not it. This was VERY PG! There was minimal affection/passion, more longing. Characters were quite religious (IMO) and the author focused on fate, faith, prayer and church. Overall an enjoyable read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Personal Classic I absolutely loved this book! It was the first novel I ever read by the author. I started reading it in a bookstore and by the time I left I knew I had to own it. Since then I've enjoyed many great novels from this talented author, but this one will remain one of my favourites! It is a meaningful, funny, uplifting tale that I will definitely read again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! What could possibly go wrong indeed? Just about everything as Ryan and Abby try to navigate being together while not really being together. And in the midst of the subterfuge they are confronted with way too many memories -- both good and bad. An emotional read that kept me on tenterhooks right to the very end. After reading the other Chapel Springs Romance books I felt a real allegiance to Ryan. He was so earnest and endearing in his desire to reconcile with Abby. It about broke my heart. Abby, on the other hand, claims to have moved on. She certainly doesn't want to open old wounds and risk even more pain. But Abby's past -- long before Ryan -- was riddled with pain. The kind she's still carrying around with her. It makes her prickly and unresponsive...at first. Ryan's relentless pursuit makes him a truly swoonworthy hero. Abby's resistance is agonizing. She's too pragmatic -- "Whether he liked it or not, they dragged their failed marriage behind them like a noisy string of cans on a "Just Married" car." (p. 57) The whole story is a riveting 'one step forward, two steps back' kind of read. Hunter does a stunning job of portraying the crushing heartache of divorce and the desperate hope of reconciliation. And the fact that Ryan and Abby were married makes the whole romance edgier. There are so many undercurrents and delicious nuances that constantly simmer below the surface. A breathtaking love story that rises from the bitter ashes of monumental loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Opener “Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”, and oh how this applies, and yet did it? Abby McKinley has never told her parents of her divorce, and they still think she is married to Ryan. When Abby’s parents invite Ryan to their anniversary, without Abby’s knowledge, they end up both going to the party. Ryan hitches a ride with Abby, just to make it look good. Yeah, right! They pretend to be married, and Abby puts her ring back on, and what a show they put on. Now we go really deep into why they are no longer together, and some sad and terrible revelations come out. Abuse, verbal, physical, can’t even imagine. Will these two be able to heal, will they finally be able to put their broken lives back together, or will they finally accept that they are not to be? This is a sweet broken love story, and kept me turning the pages, and hoping for the best. I was wondering how people could treat someone they are supposed to love as horribly as they did. An enjoyable read that might open your eyes. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
