With a big anniversary party in the works for her parents, Ryan will pretend to be Abby’s husband for just one last weekend.
Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive 2-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.
Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.
Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as devastatingly handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Seabrook, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. Besides, he only wants to check in with his best friend from college-her cousin Beau, who just lost his dad. It’s just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

I have only ever read a novella by Denise and I really liked that. So I was excited to read a full-length book by her. Can I just say this won’t be my last?
Wow. She created a story with two characters that I was totally rooting for.
Abby is a very broken young women. She has turned her back on God and has nothing to cling to now except her career. Her family is a mess and she carries the wounds her father inflicted on her.
Ryan just wants his wife back. He doesn’t really understand what happened, why their marriage ended. But as the layers are peeled back he begins to see what Abby has been carrying all these years.
This book is full of wonderful scenes that draw these two together. I love stories of hope in marriage and this book is definitely that. It’s truly beautiful and I highly recommend this one.
