Still Harbor #1
Victoria James
Releasing Aug 10th, 2015
Entangled: Bliss

Teacher Kate Abbott's fresh start in Still Harbor was the beginning of the life that she and her two best friends always imagined for themselves. Still, being a working single parent of a special needs daughter hasn't exactly improved Kate's love life. But Kate's preference for nachos over men quickly disappears when she meets the oh-so-sexy Matt Lane.

Until she finds out he's a cop.

Matt is a former cop-turned-private investigator, and he knows fear when he sees it. A cop clearly spooked Kate…or hurt her. Still, something about the gorgeous professor catches his attention, and despite his “no settling down” policy, he can't resist her. But all of the attraction in the world won't be enough to overcome Kate's past…

My Review

I really liked this story, is short but intense, deep, with great and lovable characters, a well-constructed and compelling plot.
Kate lives for her work and for her adopted daughter. One night her sisters and roommates convinced her to go out. She meets a man really sexy and charming, Matt. The attraction between them is immediately very strong but as soon Kate finds out that he is a former policeman runs away terrified. Matt is confused, he would love to see her again and the fate is on his side. But they must be able to face the ghosts of their past to live intensely their love.
All the characters are realistic and special. Kate is a great woman. She had a really difficult past but tried to get the best: she found two wonderful sisters and adopted an adorable little girl that needs lots of love and care. She has a very generous profession, that of teacher, and is very active in social work. Matt is a perfect gentleman, kind, polite, careful, charming. He also had a difficult childhood, had to take care of his mother and little sister when he was so young. He also had a marriage gone bad, is why he no longer trusts women. Little girls are very funny and  sweet.
An excellent debut for this new series, I hope to read soon the second book.
This book was well written and the storyline flowed effortlessly with great dialogue, lots of humor, plenty of chemistry, I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
If you enjoy reading sweet romance, then definitely pick this up!

I received an advance reader edition of this book via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

Victoria James is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance.

Victoria always knew she wanted to be a writer and in grade five, she penned her first story, bound it (with staples and a cardboard cover) and did all the illustrations herself. Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.

In high school she fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, Victoria pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened her own business. After her first child, Victoria knew it was time to fulfill her dream of writing romantic fiction.

Victoria is a hopeless romantic who is living her dream, penning happily-ever-after's for her characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but she's quite content living in suburbia with her husband, their two young children, and very bad cat.
