Loving Kate (Silver Bay Romance, Book 2) by Lara Van Hulzen is sweet romance between two friends. It is a charming story that focuses on interior designer Kate and an artist Jack, who both live in Silver Bay. Kate has spent the past year re-establishing herself, moving across the country after her divorce. Jack and his brother Josh own and operate an architecture company that designs beautiful buildings.

Jack wants Kate to relax and have fun. He thinks she’s too uptight and believes she should relax and laugh more. Kate has given up on men after divorcing her controlling, abusive husband. It was interesting reading this story to find out if Jack was able to get Kate to open up and let go. A store fire brings the two into daily contact and they start spending evenings and more time together.
This was a sweet, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written with complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end.
