BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Still the One by Robin Wells (Book Review 2010-76)

STILL THE ONE

After Katie Charmaine's husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she's always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town . . . with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.
Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn't felt in years. But he's in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and-worst of all-pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to each other?

    LOVED IT 

     This sweet romance will bring a few tears to your eyes, but in a good way.  I keep forgetting how much I love romance novels and then one like this comes along to remind me.  I appreciate that you can buy a great read for under $7 and this one is just perfect for summer.  There is a lot to like about this story: a reunion of mother and daughter and the father who didn't know that she existed.  The characters and situations are wonderfully drawn and believable.
