International Bestselling Author Ava Miles’ acclaimed family series, The Merriams, returns for its finale with two long-lost lovers fighting for a second chance despite the odds—with everyone’s favorite matchmakers along to pave their way.
Quinn recognized Francesca Maroun as his soulmate the moment he met her in grad school.
Of course he did. The Merriams always recognize their soulmates instantly. It just never occurred to him that world events could drive them apart so they wouldn't end up together.
Knowing there was no one else for him, Quinn devoted himself to the family business instead. Since he’s taken the reins of the troubled company, he doesn't have the time to dwell on Francesca—much. But with all his siblings falling in love and marrying, the emptiness of his life stretches before him, lonely and bleak.
But when world events take a turn again, Quinn knows it's now or never. Given that Francesca has become one of the most sought-after business consultants for the Fortune 500, he contacts her to come help him steer Merriams Enterprises clear of disaster.
When Quinn calls her about working with him to right his business, Francesca knows she should say no. She prides herself on what she's built, and working with Quinn offers temptations she doesn't want to feel. But she’s never healed from their shattering break-up, and perhaps this is the opportunity for closure. It's time to move on. What better way than proving to herself that they're over, once and for all?
Except events take a dark turn and threaten to destroy everything they’ve both worked so hard for. Even with the Merriam family at his back (and the matchmaking trio he can always count) he’s not sure there's a solution in sight—for Merriam Enterprises or Francesca and him.
An emotionally heartwarming story about true love and family that will inspire you to believe in the impossible even while the world is falling apart.
Breathtakingly Beautiful and Relevant
I have read all of the books in Ava Miles’ The Merriman series, and I honestly can’t say which one is my favorite, but Breath of Jasmine is different because part of the story is set against the backdrop of the Covid 19 pandemic. It was very interesting reading the thoughts of an Irish author, which sometimes were the same as mine and other times not so. I also love that the entire Merriman family is reunited either in person in the novel or virtually. How fun to catch up with them after our first meetings. Also, Ava Miles has a distinguishable style to her writing that folds the reader into her embrace and intensifies the reading experience. Many thanks for inviting us into your storied families’ lives, and I look forward to the next adventure!
Quinn and Francesca were meant to be. Only time and circumstances will provide the avenue to “make” it happen. Quinn has always know that Francesca was his soulmate (the Merriams always know). Now just to get the stars aligned to make it happen.
When the business takes a turn can Quinn convince Francesca to join forces with him to turn things around? Can they put aside the past and focus on the future? Love always finds a way.....or can their love be destroyed in the blink of an eye?
