Her Last Best Fling-Candace Havens

Her Last Best Fling

Candace Havens

Harlequin Blaze, October 22 2013, $5.50

ISBN: 9780373797783

After four tours in theater and an injured leg, Marine Lieutenant Blake Michaels returns home to Tranquil Waters, Texas to heal. As he heads to a gala in his honor, due to the antics of her Great Dane Harley soaking her, Blake and “Yankee Girl” Macy Reynolds meet. Inheriting her late uncle’s mansion and local newspaper Tranquil Waters News, the reporter fled Boston after catching her lover-employer with the intern.

Though she tries to fit in, the insular community makes her feel like a fish out of Tranquil Waters. Meanwhile Blake and Macy begin seeing each other and soon fall in love. However, a once in a lifetime opportunity arrives for Macy in which she must make some difficult decisions.

Her Last Best Fling is a wonderful contemporary romance though the storyline follows a very predictable path with the protagonists having issues to overcome. Harley with his always in trouble escapades and Amanda the receptionist with her amusing zingers in spite of her worry over her mom’s illness steal the show from the leads.
