This is my first book by this author. Based on book titles, I expected this to be a romance novel and nothing else. I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that it was way more than a romance novel - even though there is romance in it. The book is about spousal abuse and how it affects not only the partner being abused but also the children who are aware of the situation. Anna arrives in Safe Haven, SC, after a long drive from MN with her 5 year old twins. Even though she didn't know anyone in this small town, she had spent time here as a child and had fond memories of it. She also believed that it was somewhere safe for her to hide from her abusive husband. She soon meets Sean, the ex army contractor who is renovating the cabin that she broke into. Because of his childhood, he recognizes that he and Anna are survivors and he offers her a job with the renovations in exchange for a place to live. He also tries to help her twin daughters who are non-verbal around strangers. Can he and Anna find peace and a life together or will their past memories keep them apart? Overall, I thought that this was a well written story with a lot of interesting characters in this small town. I realized near the end that some of the questions wouldn't be answered in this book and that it was the first book in a new series. I am interested in these characters and look forward to the next book in the Safe Haven series. Thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own.
