Publisher Description

Life doesn’t always go the way we think it will, does it?

Elle moved to the city and did well in her career, but not so well in her life – at least, not her love life. One disastrous relationship and one daughter later, she’s back home at the lake, living and working with her mom.

She knows how lucky she is to have a soft place to land and this time, she’s not going to mess up. Her biggest mistakes have always been men, so she’s determined to steer clear of them. Her focus is on her daughter, Skye, and on building a good life for the two of them.

But then there’s Donovan.

Donovan’s a newcomer to the lake. He’s a great guy, kind, considerate, successful, everything that Elle’s ever wanted in a man – and all wrapped up in one hot package!

She’s been down that road before though, and tempting as Donovan might be, she shouldn’t go there again – for her daughter’s sake if not her own.

From the moment he first laid eyes on her, Donovan knew Elle was the girl for him. Despite what his friends say, he doesn’t have a problem that she has a little girl. And from their first meeting, that little girl has made it clear that she doesn’t have any problem with him - she adores him!

He knows he has his work cut out to prove to Elle that he’s nothing like her ex. All she asks of him is to be kind to Skye when it’s time to say goodbye. All he wants is to make her understand that he doesn’t ever want there to be a goodbye for them.

Please Don’t Say Goodbye

What an amazing book about “TRUST” in our lives! I’ve read all the books in the Summer Lake Series and each one always makes the reader wanting to explore the next one. Donovan and Elle’s story is one of instant attraction, but Elle’s lack of “trust” in herself from previous occurrences, hinders her lack in judgement. She knows she shouldn’t go there and leave emotions alone. Her daughter, Skye, adores Donovan when she first meets him and instantly accepts him into her little world. Two words trigger sadness into their lives and never spoken. “Trust” and “Goodbye” make life unhappy. Past histories of Donovan and Elle hinders their relationship but also intensified their emotions and feelings they want to explore. A heartwarming story of family, friends, coworkers, and many Summer Lake residents, plus one precious little girl, makes for a beautiful story to enjoy!
