It’s never too late to finish a love story…
Cole Barrett, former Army Ranger, has a new mission objective. Sell his grandfather’s house and put Deep Haven, a place that holds too many hurts, in his rearview mirror as fast as possible. Recently divorced, single, and unattached, Cole just wants a new life as a US Marshal. One where he can forget the past and start new.
Unfortunately, there’s a tenant in the garage apartment who’s refusing to move. Even worse? It’s his childhood crush, Megan Carter, and her son.
Wedding planner and single mom Megan Carter loves Deep Haven. To her, it’s the place where she makes dreams come true—at least, everyone else’s. Her big dream is to purchase the Black Spruce Bed & Breakfast to turn it into a premier event venue and, if she can stay booked for enough weddings over winter, she’ll have the needed funds to buy the inn, move out of Grandpa Barrett’s garage apartment, and finally give her nine-year-old son, Josh, the life he deserves. She just needs four thousand dollars in the next thirty days.
Still, she’s oh, so close…until Cole Barrett returns to Deep Haven. Even if he’s not back to fulfill a silly childhood promise to marry her, but she never expected him to evict her! The last thing she needs is more expenses. Or for another man to walk into her heart…and break it.
When a blizzard strikes Deep Haven, and Megan is overrun with wedding catastrophes, it takes a former Ranger to step in and help. Besides, the more he comes to her rescue, the sooner she’ll be able to move out…and he can move on. And that’s what they both want, right?
Return to Deep Haven with this magical tale about the one who got away…and came back.
BOOKS IN THIS SERIES
IN MY OPINION
For every reader that find saying goodbye to a series, and thus the characters and settings, Still the One by Rachel D. Russell proves that fresh life can be breathed into a beloved series.
This book is set in Susan May Warren’s story world of Deep Haven (which featured two series by Warren) but Russell’s author voice gives it a unique tone while bring back some of those Christiansen siblings as well as some other familiar faces while centering the book around completely new characters.
Cole and Megan both carry burdens from their pasts. They both have made mistakes and those affect many areas of their present lives. And that’s what makes so relatable. They’re human, flawed, and desire love and acceptance and the road they travel is a bumpy one filled with plenty of potholes and detours.
Still the One is a story of love, forgiveness, healing, and second chances that had me rooting for Megan and Cole from the start. Plus, there’s plenty of sizzle in there too. Russell is definitely an author to keep an eye on.
