Publisher's Summary

Some mistakes can never be fixed, and some secrets never forgiven...but some loves can never be forgotten.

Charlotte Gibbs wants nothing more than to put the past behind her once and for all. But now that she's back at Firefly Lake to sell her mother's cottage, the overwhelming flood of memories reminds her of what she's been missing. Sun-drenched days. Late-night kisses that still shake her to the core. The gentle breeze off the lake, the scent of pine in the air, and the promise of Sean's touch on her skin.... True, she got her dream job traveling the world. But at what cost?

Sean Carmichael still doesn't know why Charlie disappeared that summer, but after 18 years, a divorce, and a teenage son he loves more than anything in the world, he's still not over her. All this time and her body still fits against his like a glove. She walked away once when he needed her the most. How can he convince her to stay now?

Critic Reviews

"Four stars! Memories, regrets and second chances are front and center in Gilroy's fantastic debut. The first book in the Firefly Lake series is complex and mired in secrets. The Vermont setting adds a genuine feel to the story, and the co-stars are highly entertaining. The homebody hero and world-traveling heroine must travel a long and bumpy road to happiness." (RT Book Reviews)

Second chance romance, loved it!

I like this one so much that I've listened to this audiobook twice now. There are several elements present here that I love so much in stories: a second chance romance, sibling relationships, and a small town setting. Charlotte and Sean have a past with big secrets to overcome. The progression of their relationship is a slow build throughout the course of the story. There are secrets from their past that must be worked out as well as a rather large issue in the present, but the restoration is worth the wait.

Charlotte and Sean are great characters - I loved Sean's character most because he is gentle and kind and patient. I also loved Mia (Charlotte's sister); I think she has an interesting backstory and am excited to read about it in the next installment in this series.

Karissa Vacker is a new-to-me narrator; I enjoyed her work in this audiobook. She did a great job reading the story, especially with the emotions that presented themselves as the story progressed. This will be a re-listen for me and I'll be continuing with this series on audio.
