With a big anniversary party in the works for her parents, Ryan will pretend to be Abby’s husband for just one last weekend.
Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive 2-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.
Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.
Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as devastatingly handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Seabrook, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. Besides, he only wants to check in with his best friend from college—her cousin Beau, who just lost his dad. It’s just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?
Ryan and Abby’s story finally comes to light in this final installment of the Chapel Springs Series by Denise Hunter. In previous books, we meet Ryan McKinley, brother to Madison, Jade, and PJ who all find their heart-mates and “happily ever afters”. However, heart broken Ryan is divorced and after three years still struggling to put his life with Abby in the past and ‘move on.’ A chance phone call and finding a treasured ring gives Ryan the chance to reconnect with Abby, and this time he’s determined to win her back and be the husband he should have been. Abby dreads the road trip deal she makes with Ryan, guarding her heart from remembered pain. Resentment has built a stronghold in Abby’s heart and she struggles to recognize the second chance at love with Ryan that awaits her. Can she set aside the abusive childhood, personal failures, and pride that have become a hardened armor around her life, or will she seek the help she needs to let go of the built up hurt and resentment and let love and life take root again?
