Publisher's Summary

Author Kelly Collins takes you back to Aspen Cove where life is sweet, the tea is sweeter, and love is the sweetest of all!

Marina Caswell didn’t expect to find herself broken and alone with a four-year-old daughter. She could offer a hundred excuses as to why her marriage failed, but the truth was, she’d chosen poorly. After a painful marriage and an ugly divorce, she flees with her little girl to Aspen Cove, looking for a place to heal their wounded spirits and mend their shattered hearts. 

What she doesn’t expect to find in the quirky little town is love in the form of Sheriff Cooper, a man who insists that everything - including trust, love, and respect - is grown like a garden. All it needs is a bit of attention and care, something Marina has never experienced.  

As the local sheriff, Aiden Cooper can recognize trouble at a glance. It usually looks pretty, smells nice, and wears heels. After his last relationship failure, Aiden doesn’t expect love to bloom when single mom Marina Caswell plants roots next door, but when he sees the sadness in her eyes, he makes it his mission to sow seeds of hope and happiness in her heart.   

The tiniest kernel of love can grow when the conditions are right, but a weed from Marina’s past threatens to choke out what they’ve cultivated together. Can Aiden and Marina’s love grow and thrive, or will the past seek its revenge, causing their love to wilt and die before it can ever take root?

another great story

I read this book when it first came out, and I forgot how good this one was!

I even got a little teared up at one point listening, that I don't think I did when reading.

Narrator does a Great Job

I do enjoy visiting Aspen Cove. The small town atmosphere, the closeness and support of friends and family make it feel like you are visiting a really special place.

I admired Marina both for getting out of a violent situation, and for the way she got out. It had to be hard for both Marina and Kellyn to trust anyone. The way they both opened up and put their trust in Aiden was really sweet, especially with Kellyn. Kellyn, even speechless played a major part in this story. I loved the way Aiden behaved with Kellyn.

There was also an unexpected twist in this book. I wasn't expecting it, yet, I wasn't surprised either.

The narrator, Logan McAllister, did a really good job. He was able to convey just the right amount of ugliness in the character of Marine's ex husband. I always consider a great narration to be one that let's you get lost in the story and you aren't thinking of whether it's a man or woman speaking.

A sweet, sexy, heartwarming, small town, single mom romance. I look forward to the next Aspen Cove installment.

I voluntarily listened to and reviewed this audio book received from the author.

"Victor not a Victim"

Marina Caswell tells herself through the book that she is a victor and not a victim. She has survived unspeakable abuse and yet she is a victor. She rises from the ashes and provides an amazing life for Kellyn, a little girl who isn't hers, but yet Marina treats her as though she is. Aiden is the town sheriff and knows there is something special about these two from their first meeting. Marina is very quick to trust Aiden which I was surprised about since her past relationship left her life in ruins. Aiden quickly falls for Marina and wants to protect them, but quickly learns that Marina can protect herself. This story does deal with an issue that may be a trigger for some people. I thought the story was well told and loved returning to Aspen Cove.

The narrator did a great job bringing this story to life.

Cute & Good Narration

Marina has one hundred excuses of why with her daughter she is returning to Aspen Cove. It all comes down to choosing the wrong person to marry. Not wanting love , but the town has one sexy cowboy. For Aiden if they smell nice, wear heels, that means trouble. Cute, and enjoyable
Given ARC audio with narration by Logan McAllister was good, for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Anothe wonderful story in this series

I have loved audiobooks 1-4 and this one was just as good.
This story belongs to Marina Caswell, her daughter Keilyn and Aiden Cooper.
Aiden is the town’s sheriff. A man with a big heart who’s intrigued by his new neighbor, Marina and her daughter.
Marina has left an abusive man and now is trying to build a new home with the daughter. A girl that was traumatize because of the abuse to the point of no longer speaking as well as being terrified of men.
But as these three get to know each other, the little girl blossoms as does Marina.
But when her ex comes back to haunt her, will Marina be able to fight back and find her HEA with Aiden?
While the story is at times heartbreaking and at others heartwarming, it’s also a reminder that domestic abuse whether physical and/or emotional, does exists in all social classes.
This is another story by this talented author that’s worth your time.
