Delaney and Ethan are complicated and lovingly written characters.


Delaney ran from Wildwood, leaving as a wild child and has returned trying to claim back her family legacy, a local watering hole. But it is in worse shape than she thought and neither of her sisters seem interested in helping.

Ethan is the son of the Mayor and can’t seem to get clear of the family’s shenanigans and machinations. he just wants his brewery to get off the ground and then he can get from underneath his fathers thumb for good.

Both characters are strong willed and determined with a less than pristine family life. They have a shared tragic event and both deal with the trauma in their own way. The plot is well written and the characters are engaging although I felt Ethan was just a tad wimpy – I usually like my heroes a bit more alpha! Hoping to enjoy the rest of the series.
