Synopsis: Starting over is hard to do.
That’s what forty-year-old Jane McKinney learns when she quits her job, sells her home, and leaves Seattle behind to start a new life and pursue the man she loves in Austin. After the death of her daughter, Melody, Jane never thought she would find happiness again – until she met Caleb Cummings. Sensitive, loving, and mature beyond his years, Caleb is a handsome young musician struggling to make ends meet. But when his fortunes take an unexpected and drastic turn for the better, Jane is left wondering where exactly she fits in.
Can you ever leave the past behind? Jane must now decide if she really is willing to commit to a new beginning with Caleb – or if some wounds are just too deep to ever truly mend.

4 stars Oh, hold my heart this made me so happy. I LOVED Jane’s Melody and while it ended in a great place I was thrilled there was going to be more of Jane and Caleb’s story.
Jane and Caleb fell in love in book 1, but this story put that love to the test. In this installment we got to see Jane go through the emotions wondering if she made the right choice, even though she knew she didn’t belong anywhere else. She loved Caleb, she wanted to be with him, she wanted to support him, but she hadn’t yet figured out how she fit in. It turned out that just being with him was the way they were made to be together. I was worried with the plot line that Caleb might get a wandering eye, but was thrilled he stayed devoted to Jane.
Was the story a roller coaster? No. Were there twists and turns? No. Was it perfect? YES. If you’re looking for a book that will get your heart racing and give you anxiety, this isn’t it. It is however, a great conclusion to a love story.
I should probably mention the smexy times. They were still hot in this installment, and while I thought they were meaningful before, they were even more special this time around. The author can write a love scene that makes you feel like you know the characters are soul mates. It was pretty amazing that he could generate a connection so intense and deep with words.
