Genre: Contemporary

They’ve never met. But they’re destined for each other…

Single dad Mac Culhane has traveled to some of the world’s most dangerous war zones, but now he and his young daughter have settled in Shelter Bay, where he’s become the late-night DJ for the local radio station. The last thing he expects is to connect over the airwaves with a caller. . .

After a painful divorce, Annie Shepherd opened up a scrapbook store in town and started volunteering with local senior citizens. Although she loves her work, dreams of the family she longs for keep her up late, listening to Mac Culhane’s voice on the radio.

When Mac and Annie finally meet in person, the attraction between them is instantaneous. But Annie isn’t ready to lay her heart on the line, and neither is Mac. Fortunately, no one in Shelter Bay is about to let a perfect match escape the magic of true love.

Review: I love Shelter Bay and it's residents. It reminds me of the town I grew up in.

This was the first time I'd read a book where the military hero was not Special Forces, and I really liked it.

One of the things I loved about this book was how Mac and Annie first start talking. From there we watch as these two wounded souls come together and fall in love and start to become a family.

One of the things that is talked about in this book is Alzheimer's. This peak into what it's like for not only the person but also the family of the one suffering from this horrible disease is one of the best parts of the story.

As always in Shelter Bay we catch up with characters we already know and love, which is part of being in a small town.

This is another great installment in a series that I have grown to love with each new book. If you haven't yet discovered this series then you need pick up this book. Each book can be read as a stand alone.

Grade B+
