Better than a Bella Andre, well on par at least... who knew. I like the Irish, liked the look of the cover and have just found myself a delightful new author in Katy Regnery and a wonderful new series if this first book is anything to go by...
The Summerhaven Trio is all about the Haven triplets: Rory, Tierney, and Ian. This is Rory's story. Rory, is the serious sibling, focussed yet selfless his siblings ("tri ciarde") come first, and his loyalty to his family and the family business brings him back to Summerhaven after his mother has a stroke and thereby setting his dreams aside. The one thing he doesn't have is a love of his own. “And besides, she’s out of your league, man. Way out of your league.” Another thwack, another set of twin logs. He carried all four to the pile against the back of the building, then placed a new log on the stump. “She’s a gorgeous, rich, sophisticated woman. You run a camp-slash-conference center in the middle of nowhere.”
Enter the one-that-got-away Brittany Manion. A hotel heiress, and the object of Rory's teenage (but do-not-engage) affections. However, she was looking at Rory, too. It's hard not to want to hug Britt. She's lonely and looking for someone to love her for who she is, and not what she is. All she wants is a family. She finds a man who is perfect: he has his own money and is a great father. Brittany is set to have the family, love and support she always wanted. She returns to Summerhaven to plan her wedding and runs into the one guy at camp she wanted to look her way. "Sweet girl, I was always looking your way." But it may be too late for Rory to have his chance.
“I care more about who you are than who you’re related to.” You deserve amazing. How was it that Rory Haven, whom she barely knew, somehow managed to say all of things she so desperately needed to hear? How was it possible that in just a handful of hours, she’d felt more emotionally nourished by his company than she’d felt in a long, long time?
The one place that always made her happy growing up is SummerHaven. This she chooses to be where her HEA will begin but life doesn’t always turn out the way you think it will be.
When Rory & Brittany are brought together once again the circumstances are for different reason but when life changes your plans you can’t help knowing that an attraction is there from all those years ago.
Brittany & Rory will rediscover one another and watching the relationship develop will have you swooning with every turn of the page. The love coming from the two is heartwarming to watch and as they find each other again you can’t help hope they both find that HEA that both truly deserve.
