And that includes her ex-boyfriend's best friend, Michael Sullivan: the man she was never supposed to fall in love with.

For years he lived with the anger of her desertion, and now, newly-divorced, he's finally ready to move on - until Dahlia suddenly returns. Despite everything, Michael still wants her, but Dahlia can't seem to let go of the tangled emotions of the past.
It's time for truths left unsaid to finally be spoken, or Michael and Dahlia might find themselves torn apart forever . . .

I love everything Hart’s Boardwalk
Well, I’m sure it’s a sign of an excellent writer, when a few chapters in I’m sobbing, I don’t yet know the characters, and I don’t know the facts, but still I have tears streaming down my face. That’s great writing right there. I was so excited to get back to Hartwell, I’ve missed it. Although book 3 is split between Boston and Hartwell, it did not detract from the series. There are still the same wonderful characters we’ve seen previously, as well as the same ‘not so wonderful’ characters. We also have a few new additions. A second chance romance with a twist, and a little bit of suspense. I loved Michael Sullivan, he’s like the perfect book boyfriend, macho with a soft centre. He knows what he wants, and he’s not afraid to go for it. Dahlia however, has been belittled her whole life by the one person who is supposed to love her the most. It’s not surprising then that she has a closet full of demons. Dahlia and Michael are perfect for each other, it’s just a shame one of them doesn’t realise it. They’ve both made mistakes, they just need to own them, move on and forgive and forget. Easier said than done. I loved the writing, the story, and the characters, even when I was frustrated with them, I’m so looking forward to more in this series. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.
