Landry Hutton has spent three years rebuilding her life behind the secure gates of The Haven, an exclusive resort on the outskirts of Gossamer Falls, North Carolina. After serving as the artist-in-residence, Landry is finally ready to settle in permanently to give her daughter, Eliza, a safe home in which to grow up.

Former Marine Callum Shaw always knew he would someday join his family's construction business in Gossamer Falls. He longs for a family of his own but has almost given up on that ever happening. The beautiful artist who has hired him to build her new house is funny, gifted, and everything Cal could ever want in a partner, but he vows to keep his distance. He's loved--and lost--someone like her before.

When Landry's pottery is destroyed in a suspicious fire, it becomes clear that Landry and Eliza are in grave danger--but from whom? Cal will have to risk his heart again if he has any hope of protecting them.

My Perspective

I was hooked from page one right up until the end. If the rest of the series is as good as this one, this is hands down my favorite from Blackburn. There’s danger, romance, swoony moments, tender moments, and so much more in this story. There’s a couple of twists as well – one I kind of anticipated and one I didn’t see coming until it was there. Well done Blackburn!

Let’s talk about Callum. Goodness he’s a swoony hero. He’s gentle with Eliza, patient with Landry, and just hunky. He claims he doesn’t want to fall again, but boy he falls quick – and it’s a delight to read his pov and see where his mind is at. Readers will have all the sighs and swoons!

The suspense was great as well. Blackburn does a great job of keeping readers on their toes. It’s not so fast paced that you can’t keep up, but it’s just fast enough to keep you guessing. I am so excited to see what comes next in this series. Gossamer Falls is a place I never want to leave,

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

My Favorite Quotes

How much longer would she let the past keep her in a stranglehold?

A woman like her should have someone in her corner. Someone who appreciated her strengths. Someone who would cherish her the way she deserved to be cherished. And someone who would adore Eliza the way all daughters deserved to be adored by their daddies.

He’d been a fool to ever think he could just decide not to fall again. His heart didn’t give a flip about the danger. About the possible heartache. He just wanted them to be his.

“…sometimes even though the brain acknowledges the risk, the heart realizes that playing is safe is riskier.”
