Read in December, 2011

After inheriting her grandmother's cottage, Chelsea decides to visit the cottage to honor her Gram's last wishes. Thirty-three year old Chelsea is still looking for love never finding the right man's man. Brandon has a secret guilt that he can't seem to let go. Grandmother Brooke has lived with a deep secret and questions all her life and her family has always questioned why she never returned to her beloved cottage. There she finds family secrets and a handsome doctor, Brandon, who has his own mysterious pass. This laid-back read switches from Chelsea's contemporary story to Brooke's (Gram) love story which took place during WWII.

While the secrets aren't stunning or surprising, they are revealed in a way that maintains interest throughout the book. This book reminds me a bit of the The Violets of March by Sarah Jio but the feel of the book and the writing style is different. While I liked the book and the characters, I didn't love them. I thought the relationship between Chelsea and Brandon was rushed and not as believable while I loved the relationship of Bill, Brooke, and Greg. I enjoyed the moments in the past more than the present. However, I think I liked the unwinding of the story most of all.
