Redemption Bay (Haven Point #2) by RaeAnne Thane
What Goodreads says:
New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne brings you back to Haven Point—a place made for second chances…
McKenzie Shaw would do anything for her beloved hometown of Haven Point. It may be small and struggling, but it's never let her down…unlike gorgeous, infuriating Ben Kilpatrick. He was her childhood hero until he closed his family's factory, leaving the town's economy in shambles. Now he's back—his tech firm is considering opening a local facility. For Haven Point's sake, McKenzie has to grit her teeth and play nice.
What could a town filled with painful memories ever offer Ben? He left Haven Point behind years ago, for good reason. Yet seeing the town through the eyes of McKenzie—its fiery young mayor—he suddenly has his answer. If only he can resolve the animosity crackling between them, Ben may have found the place where he can build ties and find healing…a place where love arrives when it's least expected.
It is good to be back in Haven Point and to see who will be the next to find love. This time it is McKenzie Shaw and Ben Kilpatrick. It is hard to believe that they could ever get together but they do have some things in common.
I loved the story. Both McKenzie and Ben are great characters and their story unfolds in a very believable way. As usual Thayne’s story line is well thought out. Back-story happens when needed and adds to the flow. One thing I loved was something that was lacking. There were some hot kisses but no page after page of sex. I read an ARC so I hope that stays the same. It was refreshing to have all of the action mean something without all of the sex scenes interrupting the story line.
This is just book 2 in the Haven Point series. The town has some other great characters just waiting for their story.
Harlequin published Redemption Bay by RaeAnne Thayne in 2015.
I received an ARC of Redemption Bay from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
