Jo Barrett has done it again in this beautiful and enchanting story of a man and a woman getting a second chance at love. Emily Mayfield is a fighter yet she welcomes rest in her life. I loved that even though she is a fighter she still wants what every woman wants and that is love. Now Barnaby is a man who thought he had love but because of a scheming woman never got it. These two together are great and the way they welcome happiness is remarkable. Jo did a beautiful job in showing Barnaby’s doubts yet his fear of failing in love again. This is definitely a great book to read and can’t wait for more of Jo Barrett’s book to come for she is truly an enchanting author that brings characters to life and memorable. Loved it!
