Book Review: Chasing Redemption
A woman seeking refuge in a bottle of champagne.
A man in the right place, at the right time.
And an incredible night on the beach that would alter their lives forever.
After a one-night stand with a handsome stranger, Marley Halligan has accepted her life for what it is - a hot mess. Working as an event planner in New York City and being a single mother to her twins, Marley’s life was chaotic enough. She never imagined that she’d run into the father of her children in the small town of Quimby Grove, Pennsylvania.
Max Quinn had been determined to find the gorgeous blond that captured his attention on the beach all those years ago. She was sassy, beautiful, and lit something within him. He knew that she was the one. The only problem was, he didn’t know anything about her - not even her name. But everything changes whenever he spots her from across the room at his best friend’s wedding. Determined to get her to stay in town, he will do anything for another shot with the one that got away.
As if navigating parenthood together wasn’t difficult enough, an unusual string of crimes are committed in Quimby Grove, each worse than the one before it, with Marley landing smack dab in the middle of them all.
Will Marley and Max be able to reignite their spark and solidify their family roots before the town’s tragedies tear them apart? Or are they destined to go their separate ways?
This is the first book I have read by this author. I loved it so much. I do plan to go back and read book one in this series. Max and Marley's nicknames for each other had me laughing. Max's is Busker and Marley's is Princess. When you read this book you will get the context and understand why.
Despite Max's one slip up in the beginning when Marley told him about being a father, he really is one of the sweetest guys. The way that he interacted with Izzy and Jax and every time he looked at Marley with love in his eyes was great. It just made me fall for him even more.
I loved every moment of this book. I read finished it within a few days and no other books came in between. Chasing Redemption is a charming, small-town must-read romance!
