⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5
Parker Hayes is raising her son on her own since she lost her husband in the war. Life hasn’t been easy since they married, and she lost him. Growing up in the small Maine town has been a curse on her since everyone knows everyone’s business and everyone in the small town believes that she broke Remy’s heart by cheating on him. Too bad the only people who know what really happened that night six years ago aren’t talking. Parker doesn’t want to tarnish Danny’s reputation. His family knows most of the truth and they have always stood beside her and helped her, but the rest of the town has shunned her and treated her as though she broke Remy’s heart.
Jeremy “Remy” Townsend made a promise to his dyeing best friend when they were overseas and he’s having a hard time making good on his promise. He would do anything for Parker Hayes, but he truly believes that she hates him and he’s having a hard time being around her. That is until he is pushed back into her life when her dog dies and then some weird happenings start at her home. They have to talk and they both need to come clean and be honest with each other.
This is a story about second chances, coming clean, and fighting the fear of losing someone you love so that you can move on in life and both be happy. Its full of suspense, secrets, deception and danger. I love the characters and am looking forward to more in the series. There’s a lot of men in this series that need to overcome their fears and pull up their big boy panties and step up to show the women they want that they are worth the fear they have deep down. I give this story a 4.5-star review and look forward to reading more of the Birch Police Department stories to come. The men may be ex-military and police officers, but deep down they hide a fear of the unknown when it comes to the women, they want in their lives but are too afraid to let them know it. The back and forth between the characters is steamy and fun to read. I look forward to more.
