Description

Madison's heart has been closed for years. But one summer can change everything. In the years since her twin brother's drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian in their riverside town, the loss still haunts her. To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother's dream of winning the town's annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast. Beckett O'Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help-and he'll give it, because he owes her far more than she'll ever know. Madison will do anything-even work with the infamous Beckett O'Reilly-to reach her goal. And as much as she'd like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart. But Beckett harbors a secret that will test the limits of their new love. Can their romance survive summer's challenges? And will achieving her brother's dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?

Bergren, best-selling author of Glamorous Illusions "A compelling, romantic tale of hope, healing, and a love that's meant to be ..." -Lisa Wingate, national best-selling author of Blue Moon Bay and Firefly Islandshow more

Review quote

"Hunter's latest Chapel Springs Romance is a lovely story of lost and found, with a heroine struggling to accept that trusting God doesn't make life perfect---without loss or sorrow---but can bring great joy. The hero's love for her and willingness to lose her to save her is quite moving." Romantic Times, 4 starsshow more
