I just wanted to slap Faith in the beginning but she seemed to grow on me. Oh, I loved Greg. This is a great follow-up in the series.

Must Have Faith is the second book in the Darling Cove series and it is a smoking second chance romance that features a romance between an older couple. I was drawn into the story from the start because I found it exciting that Faith had a career that I don’t see very often in romance. There was also the mystery of what had occurred to make her run away from her imminent nuptials as well as what was it that occurred when she was on assignment in Iraq. It had been ten years since the dissolution ...more

Must Have Faith is the second book in the Darling Cove Series by Deborah Garland and is a fantastic second chance romance. This story is every bit as great as the first book, and I really loved getting to know Faith and Greg so much better. We met them in the first book “Must Love Fashion” where they played secondary character roles. Greg is Gwen’s brother (book one) and Faith is Gwen’s childhood best friend (book one).

Must Have Faith (Darling Cove #2) by Deborah Garland was a sweet, fun, entertaining read that had all the good feels and of course some late summer, hot, smut!

Not my first read my this author or this series, I was intrigued because both Faith and Greg were introduced in the first book. And we were told some of what had happened to them in the past. Also, the last of that book, sets you up perfect for this one.

I am in love with this series. What a mix of characters, backstories and growth. This

This is Book Two in the Darling Cove series and can absolutely be read as a stand-alone.

This story focuses on Gregory and Faith. He's a cop, she's a new producer. One mis-step changed their whole direction for life.

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are well developed, the plot has some twists and turns and of course the romance is swoon-worthy.

It got a little frustrating at times with some back and forth situations, but it's fiction and things happen a little differently in books.

Ten years ago, Gregory Mallory and Faith Copeland very nearly got married. Then something happened, and Faith, a CNN reporter, left Gregory very nearly at the altar, and took a three-year assignment in Iraq.

Faith has been back in New York for seven years, and is now a nighttime executive producer in New York City. She slips in and out of Darling Cove to visit her parents, but tries to avoid seeing anyone else. Especially, she avoids Greg, whom she has never gotten over.

Faith Copeland knew coming home would be hard but knew it was the right thing to do for her family. What she never expected was the hope of a second chance at the love she walked away from so long ago.

Greg Mallory has spent the last ten years trying to get over Faith, but that proved to be harder said than done. Now that she's back, those old feelings surface stronger than ever.

Although years have passed, they come back together like it was just yesterday. Their connection grows even more intens

When his bride-to-be left him days before they were supposed to say "I do" Greg Mallory was beside himself, she was his forever, and in the blink of an eye and without little explanation she was gone. And she has stayed away since the day she said goodbye ten years ago, but now she has decided to return home and spend sometime with her ailing father, and reacquaint herself with the friends she left behind. Which also means there is bound to be a reunion for the former lovebirds, and Greg plans t ...more

Must Have Faith by Deborah Garland is the second book in her Darling Cove Series and what a fantastic follow up in this second chance romance series. Following the story of Faith and Greg, both older and definitely more mature this gave the story a different spin than the usual romance and one that really made this one stand out for me. Faith has a successful career and yet the dissolution of her marriage to Greg Mallory over ten years ago still haunts her. Faith has done nothing more than kept ...more

The story Must Have Faith (Darling Cove Book 2) by Deborah Garland is a contemporary romance book. It is a story that hooked me in from the very beginning and had me turning pages wanting to know how it ends.

Must Have Faith by Deborah Garland is a beautifully told story about giving into second chances, righting the wrong in ones life and letting love dictate your future. Another new author for me and I am very happy that I took the chance on Deborah's novel. I am a lover of all second chance romances and this one soared for me!

Must Have Faith by Deborah Garland is the 2nd book in the Darling Cove Series. Although it is the 2nd book in a series it can be read as a stand-alone. If reading more than 1 book in the series I would suggest reading them in order as the main characters from the 1st book, Must Love Fashion, appear in this book.

Must Have Faith is the second book in the Darling Cove series from Deborah Garland. I have not had the pleasure of reading book one yet, but will probably go back and do so now. I didn’t think that the fact I didn’t read that one affected my ability to fully enjoy this one though.

In Must Have Faith we get a darling story about Gregory Malory and Faith Copeland. Theirs is a second chance romance that gets complicated by secrets that have already destroyed their past. Will their new chance at lov

Must Have Faith is book 2 in the Darling Cove Series written by Deborah Garland. Book one is Must Love Fashion. Must Have Faith can be read as a standalone however Must Love Fashion is also a great book and the characters run over into book two. You get introduced to Greg in book one and this is his story, and Faith’s. The story is cute with its many complications. It makes you wonder what was going on in both of their minds at the time. The story alternates between both Greg and Faith’s point o ...more

I have always loved reading second chance stories, especially knowing that it’s an old love. A love that has never gone away. A love that can be discovered.

Must Have Faith by Deborah Garland gives the reader exactly that. This was such an intriguing story - to see a love that was thought to be lost, but is found once again.

Greg Mallory thought that all had been lost for him when he was left at the altar. He was left to wonder why his fiance had left him at the altar, without a warning. Unfortu

“Must Have Faith” is the second book in the Darling Cove series by Deborah Garland so make sure to read “Must Love Fashion” first! “Must Have Faith” gives us the story of Gwen’s brother Greg and the woman he was supposed to marry ten years ago, Faith. Greg has been stuck in the past since his ex-fiancée left him ten years ago, right before they were to be married. He is an honorable man and dedicated police officer, just like his father, and proud of it. Faith left Greg to report to Iraq for a t ...more

No sophomore slump for this author. Must Have Faith follows on the coattails of the previous book in the series, "Must Love Fashion".

Greg Mallory isn’t the kind of man to wallow just because he was left at the altar. Not when there are plenty of women to help him forget his heartbreak. But as the only Mallory son, he has an obligation to carry on the family name. When Greg’s runaway bride returns, his head tells him to keep his distance, but his body and his heart are both begging for a second chance.

I was looking forward to this book. Second chance with older characters, yes please. Unfortunately, this was just an OK read to me.
The bumps in the road:

The characters didn't act their age. I never bought into them being older and wiser.

The writing didn't flow well to me. There were several times I had to reread a passage multiple times because I just didn't get what was being said.

But the part that really felt off to me were the random throwaway comments/thoughts referring to H's "dominance

What a good read, I really enjoyed this story with its family feel, romance and will she/won’t she drama. The story takes the reader back in Darling Cove for Deborah Garland’s latest book; this is Greg and Faith’s story and if you read Must Love Fashion you will definitely want to one click this one.

I loved how the author brought the characters together again, it was fascinating seeing how Greg dealt with coming face to face with Faith again after she left him at the altar. He is such

This is the second book in the Darling Cove series and I loved it! I love how its a second chance romance with an older couple. I don't necessarily see that often and that's one thing I love!

I instantly fell in love with Faith. Her career is something I haven't read in novels. I loved her personality from the get go but there is also this mystery about her on why she ended thing with her fiancé Greg Mallory all those years ago.

Greg's heart has always been with Faith. He never really got over tha
