I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
When faith lost her husband to a tragic accident she moved here mother and young son to hide away and heal at the tip of an isolated peninsula, surrounded by glittering water and soaring lines of trees and not much else. The imaginary lives she crafted were the only excitement she'd allowed herself since her husband had died, so she had to make them spectacular.
Zander Minnelli rolled his Harley off of the ferry from Manitoulin Island to Tobermory. After twenty years in the army with six months left before he retires he was coming home for a visit getting ready to move home for good. On the way home to pine harbour he stops at Greta's Bakery for a piece of pie and a last minute alone.

Find out for yourself in this must read novel for anyone who loves romance.Heat level scorching!!
I think with this pine harbour series every book is better than the last I'm sad that it is ending and I will miss these wonderful people that Zoe York has spun so creatively. They seem like old friends. She makes you feel every emotion like your there with them and its hard to say goodbye.
I just picked up the Wardham series as now that I have delved into this exciting author, I cannot put her books down. I know that this authors series will be every bit as good as the last and am anticipating reading them!
The story flows freely as if she has lived every moment with these characters. You can feel their fear their love, joy and sadness, so heart felt and beautiful each and every one. Zoe York is remarkable in her genius as a writer! I feel so privileged to have found her work 5****'s
