Olivia may act like she’s got everything under control, but Dr. Finn Gallagher knows a person in over her head when he sees one. He’d really like to be the shoulder she leans on, but Olivia makes it clear she doesn’t want his help. Since he’s returned to town, his waiting room has been full of single women feigning illness. Yet the one woman he’s interested in is avoiding him. But with a little help from some matchmaking widows and a precocious little girl, Finn might just win Olivia over.
ANGIE’S REVIEW: Straight up, I haven’t read a Debbie Mason book that I haven’t fallen in love with. She is an auto-buy from Amazon and I find myself wanting another book before I’ve even turned ten pages in her current.
Harmony Harbor is one of my top five favorite series. Between the goings on at the Manor, so many secrets all over town and in the family, and just…one minute you’re laughing, the next you’re pretending you have something in your eye.
…I don’t recommend wearing makeup when you read this unless you like looking like a raccoon after laughing or crying so much. Well, unless you’ve got some amazing setting spray or waterproof cosmetics.
Olivia is the kind of woman that you have very strong feelings for. You want her to own up to her addiction. You want her to bleed out all of her pain instead of walking around as if there’s a cloud of doom hanging over her. You want to hug her one second, shake her the next. After all, she is responsible for her deceased husband’s young daughter.
Finn…ah, he is just so…he can be such a jerk one moment, completely lovely the next. He made Olivia own up to her lies and face her addiction. They’re so good for each other.
While Ms. Mason’s books run a tad predictable, I enjoy that comfort in all of her books. But just when you are feeling comfortable with what you think is happening, she throws you for a loop.
It’s better to read this series in order so that you’re up to date with all that has happened and taking place.
DISCLAIMER: I requested a review copy so that I could participate in the review tour through Tasty Book Tours. All opinions are my own.
Olivia smiled and nodded while saying, “You know, George really took a shine to you. So I was thinking, you should move into the manor.” She’d read somewhere that if you nodded during a conversation or negotiation the person would automatically agree with you. In Finn’s case, it didn’t have the desired effect.
He emphatically shook his head. “No. No way.”
“You don’t have to be so cross.”
He ducked to look her in the eyes. “Seriously? How old are you? You sound like you’re sixty-five when you say that.”
She gasped, offended. “I can’t believe you just said that to me.”
“I can’t believe I’m the only one who ever has. Some friends you’ve got.”
“I have very good friends, thank you very much. And maybe they don’t say anything because, first, it’s unbelievably rude, and second, you are probably the only person I’ve said it to because you are the only person whoever gets cross. . . ticked at me.”
“Really? That surprises me. Because, Sweet Cheeks, you can be annoying.” He grinned, and then headed for Stanley’s Audi.
Her cheeks heated, but as she watched him walk away, she got a little panicked about dealing with George without him by her side. “Finn, if I promise not to annoy you, would you please stay at the manor?”
“Nuh-uh. No way.”
“What if I pay you?”
He turned and walked backward. “How about that? You just proved my earlier point. Rich girls really do think they can buy everything. Sorry to disappoint you, Sweet Cheeks, but I’m not for sale.”
