After the heartbreaking loss of his daughter and subsequent breakdown of his marriage, Doctor Sean Flannigan takes his boat and disappears into the Florida Keys, seeking escape from his demons. Sailing into Paradise Cove, Sean decides to stay at a set of seaside cottages and is overwhelmed by the over-friendly owner and her three daughters. He’d leave, but the enticing Kayla keeps him on the beach.
Kayla Holmes loves her family’s guest cottages inherited from her step-father, though there’s a lot of repairs needed and money is tight. She, along with her mother and sisters, enjoy interacting with their guests- especially the mysterious sailer who booked a long stay in one of their cabins. Something about the taciturn Sean Flannigan draws Kayla. She tells herself it’s because she wants to see their guests have a good time, but that doesn’t explain the reason why her heartbeat jumps whenever he is near.
When Sean rescues a Cuban family adrift in the bay, he and the Holmes clan band together to get the pregnant wife the care she needs. Sean can’t turn his back, though it brings painful memories of his daughter swimming to the surface. With Kayla’s compassion and caring arms, he slowly realizes life goes on and second chances can mend broken hearts.
This is a beautifully told story of one man’s terrible loss and the woman who brought him back to life.
