Home to Seaview Key-Sherryl Woods

Home to Seaview Key Sherryl Woods Mira, Jan 28 2014, $7.99 ISBN: 9780778315896 Following her divorce, Abby Miller returns home to the Seaview Key, Florida to start over and reconnect with family and friends like her childhood BFFs recently married Hannah and Luke Stevens (see Seaview Inn). When town newcomer paramedic Seth Landry rescues Abby from drowning, they are stunned by their attraction to each other. However, both have had recent heart wrenching setbacks so each prefers friendship instead of romance. Meanwhile Hannah fears her beloved Luke still carries the torch of his teen sweetheart Abby. At the same time that Hannah fears love lost, Abby and Seth work together on a fundraiser. Still feeling the pull of desire, they agree to a short term tryst; as neither is emotionally ready for a permanent loving relationship. The second Seaview Key romance is a delightful leisurely-paced contemporary as the flawed lead characters struggle with falling in love at a time when neither feels capable of giving the other all they deserve; especially wary of commitment is military veteran Seth. The Hannah jealousy subplot adds depth to a fine tale of love between two reluctant protagonists. Harriet Klausner
