Many thanks to Samantha and publisher Harlequin Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Simply beautiful. The book encapsulated me with its warmth and mystery from the very first scene until the end, bringing with it a delicious happiness at having read a beautiful story of three women, strong yet vulnerable in the secrets they hid. RaeAnne Thayne was one awesome author who could bring joy into my heart at these times to stress.
Olivia was away from home since 12 years, but a call about her mother Juliet’s accident brought her back to Cape Sanctuary and Sea Glass Cottage, where her niece Caitlin awaited. Secrets hidden soon came to light as the three formed a new bond with each other.
Having read many books by this talented author, I loved the anticipation to get into this story. The women were so different yet so similar. It was fun to get to know them as they got to know each other. All three of them had to let go of the baggage of their past if they wanted a new life together. I loved how the author brought them together, slowly taking the time to bind them, one thread at a time.
The story could pull me into its depths by the loving way it was written. The scenes moved sequentially as it I were watching a heart warming movie. Forgiveness was the core of the book, and realizing they were just humans who made mistakes brought me to tears. Love and happiness made their pain lighter, and it was wonderful to see them shining bright down the pages.
Romance soon followed and happily ever after soon ensured. But it was the journey of the three, bound by blood and love, which captured by soul and didn’t let go. A beautiful read.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

The life Olivia Harper always dreamed of isn’t so dreamy these days. The long work days are unfulfilling, as is her relationship with her on-again, off-again boyfriend. So when her estranged mother, Juliet, has an accident Olivia heads home to Sea Glass Cottage. Here she can clear her head and help her mother look after her orphaned niece Caitlin.
Cape Sanctuary is a beautiful town, but one that holds painful memories for Olivia, Juliet and Caitlin Harper. But as Olivia tries to balance her own needs with those of her injured mother and her resentful fifteen-year-old niece, it becomes clear that all three Harper women have been keeping heartbreaking secrets from one another.
Surrounded by her family and friends, including her best friend’s brother, and local fire chief, Cooper Vance, Olivia finds happiness can come at life’s most unexpected moments.
