Keith: A Hathaway House Heartwarming Romance book 11.
Welcome to Hathaway House. Rehab Center. Safe Haven. Second chance at life and love.
Keith came to Hathaway House at his sister’s insistence. For he has already given up on regaining the future she keeps telling him that he can find here or, for that matter, any other future worth having. And, besides, don’t they know he’s too weak for the trip and for the treatment and for any of the plans the team has for him? Don’t they know he’s broken beyond repair, and nothing they can do will fix him?
But apparently they don’t because no one listens to him. Not the doctors. Not his sister. And definitely not the tiny woman who keeps delivering his coffee at 5:00 a.m.
Ilse, head chef for Hathaway House, rarely ventures out of the kitchen she manages. It’s easier to deal with the groceries and the staff than it is to see the pain and suffering of those she feeds. But something about Keith and his frailty calls to her. She can’t help but go out of her way to ensure he has everything he needs. Even though she knows she cannot keep their relationship on a professional level, once started.
Even if not in her best interests to do so. Because, in this case, surely Keith’s best interests matter, so much more than her own.
Keith: Hathaway House of Healing and Hope
Hathaway House of Healing are a series of standalone books. They can be read out of order. I love the beloved characters, both the newcomers and the regulars found within the pages of the books. Keith and Isle, a wounded warrior and a hard working chef. There is romance but also deep thought in the healing process. Emotional healing as well as physical healing. A warm friendship which develops despite fears and hesitancy, a gentle romance for all ages. Bravo!

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I am marking this as 4 stars but I really felt it would be a 3.5. I really didn't feel that connection between the characters. I mean they would spend 10 minutes together some days and that was enough for a relationship? While it didn't seem believable, it was a nice break to the day.
This is another addition to the heartwarming series. Hathaway House is where men and women go to rehabilitate from their horrific injuries (especially the military for this series.)
Keith has gone through 30 surgeries to get him to a place where he can finally go to Hathaway House. While his physical injuries are severe, he at least has all his limbs, his mental health is really suffering though. All this stems from when his father kicked him out of the house at 16.
Ilse is the head chef at Hathaway House. She has never gotten involved with the patients before. She accidentally comes across as Keith early in the morning. She starts to bring him coffee.
This book is written in a dual POV format. This is also a clean romance.
