A dark and stormy night…
As a hurricane bore down on the Eastern Shore, Sheriff Liam Sullivan patrolled the roads, glad to see everyone was staying inside.
Everyone except the owner of the car towing a trailer, now sitting on the side of the road, lights flashing.
And he met her. A woman in need. A woman to help. A woman to protect. A woman to love.
Now to convince her of that.
Military duty called them away to war zones, but after tours overseas, the group of friends found their way back home as men, seeking the peaceful little seaside town. Now, the band of brothers, together once more, work to provide a place for less fortunate veterans to call home.
Rough Edges Smoothed
Sheriff Liam Sullivan has spent his life taking care of others. When his father passed away, he stepped up and became the “man of the family”. Now, he’s taking care of the people of the Eastern Shore. Driving home before a powerful hurricane makes land, Liam comes across a car and trailer on the side of the road. Thinking they were broken down, Liam rushes through the wind and rain to see if he could be of assistance. He comes across a VERY pregnant mom and her younger daughter. After a little confusion, on Lima’s part, he finally convinces Amy and Rosie to stay with him until the storm subsides. Although reluctant to go home with a stranger, Amy realizes the danger she’s put herself and her child in so she agrees to go with Liam. Baytown and Tori will have to wait.
Through many twists and turns, Amy and Rosie end up staying with Liam longer than originally planned. Amy works remotely transcribing for various doctors. When she decided to leave and move to Baytown, Amy was given an orthopedic doctor’s group. It’s during her transcription that she realizes she’s stumbled upon possible Medicare fraud. Liam notifies the FBI, threats are made, and lives are in danger…
Although not as suspenseful as many of Maryann Jordan’s novels are, the “getting to know” each other and cooking with Rosie more than made up for lack of suspense. Children are messy, but bring so much joy and love into our lives. Liam had forgotten that neat and orderly wasn’t living. Amy and Rosie brought to life the “old, messy, fun-loving” Liam. I loved Liam’s grandma’s outtake on sea glass, such an amazingly insightful quote about life. I highly recommend this feel-good novel. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
Another great book by Maryann Jordan
Sea Glass Hearts will touch your heart
Sheriff Liam Sullivan loves calm, everything in its place, he loves his family but enjoys the quiet of his house. On the way home during the beginning of a hurricane he comes upon a car pulling a trailer on the side of the road.
Amy Carruthers is on her way to Baytown with her daughter Rosie to start a new life with her daughter and the baby she’s carrying. Pulling over to the side of the road to take care of her daughter she’s surprised when a officer opens her door.
What starts out as just a rescue turns into so much more.
I loved their love story, watching Liam step out of his comfort zone.
Love from friendship, the cutest little girl and a surprise birth.
Now it wouldn’t be a Maryann Jordan book without some suspense but this is definitely more of a love story!
