You have to read the first book which is called Wild Water to understand and know the characters, I was so glad to read the next part of Jack’s story. I got a sense right from the start that things weren’t looking very good for Jack and his family, he is torn between Anna and his children but which will he choose. I still found Patsy horrible some of the things she does is awful. I was so intrigued by what would happen I read this book in a day. It was brilliant.

This is the first book in a three part series of Jan Ruth’s books. After reading a previous novel of Jan’s I was very happy to receive these three books. I love how vibrant the heather is on the front of this cover, it makes you want to snuggle up with a hot chocolate which is exactly what I did. This is a contemporary romance but so much more, I instantly fell in love with Jack and really hoped that his horrible wife Patsy would see the pain she had inflicted on their poor children. It is a heart wrenching story but I really did feel emotional for Jack and what happens.
