Kit Brennan has always been known as the good daughter by her other sisters. She's a school teacher, loves to read and is always there for her family. While in Capitola, where her family has a beach house, Kit meets Jude. He's everything she's not and not someone that her family would approve of. He's a bad boy that wears a leather jacket, rides a motorcycle and has tattoos. They couldn't be more different, but there's just something about him that draws Kit in. Can opposites really attract? Or are their lives too different?
At school Kit gets a new student, Delilah. She's very withdrawn and not like the other kids. Kit finds out that Delilah is hiding a very dark secret. One that can threaten her very own well-being. Kit is caught between wanting to do the right thing as a teacher and adult, but not wanting to do anything that would potentially put Delilah in harm's way.
In the meantime, Kit is battling being single, but wanting a child of her own. She has been seriously considering adoption, but not getting the support from her family. They don't think that a single parent should have a child and they're not too keen on adoption. Will Kit listen to her family's advice or will she follow her heart?
Once again, Jane Porter has written another 5 star worthy book. This book is full of twists and turns, passion and romance and love and heartache. The author does a great job touching on some serious subjects in a tasteful, respectful manner. I really enjoyed reading this book and getting to know the Brennan sisters more. I think it's a story that many can relate to, but not a lot would admit to. I would definitely recommend this book to others. I would, however, suggest reading the first book in this series, The Good Woman, prior to this one. It will give a better sense of the dynamic of the family. I loved this book and read it in a day. It was one that was hard to put down and you didn't want to end.
