This was a fun book for me reading about a small town in Ontario and hearing name of placed that I have been to. I could relate with the seeing of the book well.
Rafe and Olivia had a whirlwind romance and were married very quickly six years ago but when they returned to Pine Harbour to start their lives, things were harder than they expected. Olivia learning to live in a new small town, Rafe busy working two jobs that he loved with passions. Life got in the way and they struggled to find the balance to keep a relationship alive. Even though they have now been divorced for two years neither has moved on with their lives romantically.
Rafe has never stopped loving Liv. It might be part of why he has breakfast 3 days a week at the local diner where she works. His work keeps him busy but he is missing something in his life and the more he thinks about it he is certain it is Liv. With that in mind he decides he is going to see if they can start over and give things another try. Now he just needs to convince Liv.
Liv has finally adjusted to this super small town living. She enjoys her work at the diner but she is lonely. Her closest friend was also her sister-in-law and that can be difficult sometimes since the divorce. Getting over Rafe has been hard for her as she still sees him all the time. When an opportunity for work of a different kind arises she jumps all over it. Finding herself busy with this new side work she starts to understand a little more of Rafe's need and want to put his focus on work. Will she be convinced by Rafe that they should maybe start over, date a little and see where things lead?
Can Rafe and Liv have a second chance at the life they had started all those years ago. Will the interference of small town living get in the way? Will people be open to them starting over?
This was a quick easy read. I would have liked a little more connection with the characters but did enjoy the story. I am sure to check out more Pine Harbour in the future.
