This was another good read in the series. This time we have Lindsay and Tanner. I really liked the relationship that Tanner had with Red. It was nice for him to have someone to hang with. I was happy for Lindsay. She needed someone to be happy with. It was also nice that her daughters really liked Tanner too.

I won’t retell the story…I wouldn’t have the words. What you will find, however, is a story about two people who seem to feel they are “less” or “broken” when all they really are is alone…for now. Lindsay and Tanner get off to a bit of an embarrassing start (really pretty funny meeting) and struggle to spend as much time together as they can. Lindsay helps Tanner declutter the house he inherited and Tanner learns to let people in, including a special young boy who lives next door to him.

Satisfying Small-Town Romance

Readers of Barbara Lohr's Man from Yesterday series will remember Lindsay, the no-nonsense war widow whose house cleaning business is keeping her afloat. Lindsay's husband has been gone for three years, and with help from her parents and her brother, she is raising her two children and trying to keep her life together. She doesn't have time to move things along, much less to start dating. That's until she meets Tanner who left Gull Harbor rather mysteriously after hi

The book dedication was short, sweet, unexpected and good. One sentence that said a lot.

This was a charming sweet book with a great sense of community pulling together in Gull Harbor. Since I grew up in a small town, the story resonated with me. It was pretty much true to what it was like living in a small town. It might even be more eye-opening to those who didn't grow up that way. I liked how Lindsay's family surrounded her and had her back.

A charming, second chances romance, this book touched all the right spots for me. Lindsay is just getting by, coping with the the fall-out that came as a result of her husband’s death, having to rely on relatives to assist her with her small girls and working to pay the rent at the end of each month. Tanner, on the other hand, is barely existing. Coming home to Gull Harbor is a questionable decision, as far as he is concerned, and when he finds Lindsay cleaning his house with obnoxious chemical ...more

Well, this was lovely.

Here we meet Lindsay and Tanner, both carrying the weight of their pasts. I found them to be quite sad at the start of the story, like they were just going through the motions in life. They really needed a spark. ;-)

Anyway, not everything was peachy at the start of the story, but they slowly start to get to know each other, and the more that weight starts to lift. Their love story is a slow build (which I love) with some ups and downs, but I was so freaking happy when they

A wonderful story written with lots of love and emotion, pulling me right into the middle of the story. I love Gull Harbor with relatable characters I've gotten to know and new ones being added so I feel like I'm going home. I couldn't put the book down and was sad when I got to the end because I wasn't ready to leave Gull Harbor and my book friends.

I enjoyed the instant attraction and chemistry between widow Lindsay and veteran Tanner and could understand her reluctance to tell him about her da

Every Breath You Take is a story about getting a second chance. Both Lindsay and Tanner are both dealing with feelings that they are not enough for anyone, let alone each other, as a result of their pasts. Watching them come together to help heal one another was a beautiful thing.

I loved Tanner's interactions with Red, his neighbor with Down Syndrome. At first Tanner is convinced he doesn't like children, but the more time he spends with Red, the more he realizes that he's not as opposed to them

They don’t get off on the best foot when she writes that he is an idiot while taking down his list of demands and he sees this list. However, there is an instant attraction to each other. But Lyndsay is a widowed single mom who was hurt by her husband’s lack of direction.

Every Breath You take is the sixth book in the Man from Yesterday Series. I did not read book one, this book can also be read as a standalone. I did just order the other books in this series because I enjoyed this book so much. A book of second chance romance.

There is a connection between Tanner and Lindsay and their first meeting will have you laughing. Tanner wants nothing to do with kids and pets but maybe his relationship with his special neig ...more

Every Breath You Take (Man from Yesterday Book 6) by Barbara Lohr. This is Tanner and Lindsay's story.

This story grabbed my attention from the beginning to the end. Tanner and Lindsay's story is a sweet and heartwarming story with some humor. When Lindsay and Tanner first meet it was priceless. I loved the characters and their interactions. The supporting characters were a great addition to the story too especially Tanner's neighbor Red.

I reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Ms. Lohr has a way of writing that makes the characters feel like family. Furthermore, this story of Lindsey and Tanner is compelling, heartfelt, and real. It will make you want to jump in and help out or at times just add word of wisdom, for her writing is so true to life that you may actually even see yourself in it. I love this book and the chemistry between Lindsey and Tanner and the journey they take to discover that sometimes in life it's ok to dream and that sometimes when we picture a gr ...more

I have loved every book in this series, Lindsay and Tanner's first meeting is fun. These characters are believable and have great chemistry. They both think they are broken, but actually they have much to offer to each other and the world. Tanner's interactions with Red, a neighbor with Down Syndrome, is one of the book's high points. Will Lindsay and Tanner finally communicate and heal each other? This is a wonderful story about acceptance, love, trust, and second chances. I could not put it do ...more

Every Breath You Take is a delightful return to Gull Harbour. This book is a delight from Lindsay and Tanner's first meeting to their HEA. It is beautifully and sensitively written with just the right touch of humour. The characters are great and Red is a particular delight. Although this is part of the Man from Yesterday series and it is lovely to catch up with characters from previous books it is also a perfect stand-alone book.

Every Breath You Take is a well-written romance. The main characters are very likable. The story is paced well; I wasn't tempted to skim. I love the small town Michigan beach setting. I usually read sweet romances, so I was disappointed when the main characters had sex before they were married. There weren't any graphic scenes though which I appreciated. I probably won't read any more from this author due to my preferences for clean romance. I received an ARC. I chose to write a review and share ...more

Barbara Lohr's book grabbed my attention right from the first page. What a beautiful story of young love, loss, and a new love wrapped up in a book full of humor and heartache. The backdrop of the ocean adds a sense of calmness to the story too. How lucky for Lindsay and Tanner that they could overcome tragedies that made them stronger and together they can became a family full of hope and love. What a beautiful and fun story.

Every Breath You Take is the sixth in a series. Undoubtedly, the reading experience would be richer if one had read the prior books in the series, but the story makes sense without the previous books.

The characters are realistic and their relationship is believable. Both characters learn and mature as they grow closer together.

My Review

Relationships take time and have a way of directing your attention towards things that need your focus. There are also things in your life that can change without you taking notice. Some parts just slide easily into place as if there was already a place made for it. Life is not easy but if you change your attitude towards it, it can amaze you in so many ways.

There are a couple of major flaws in this story. First, the widow of a soldier killed in act would normally receive $400,000 in life insurance and she could use his GI Bill money to attend college. These facts should have been dealt with one way or another.

The widow and the vet

A swoon worthy story of a young widow with two children and a veteran who makes it clear he doesn't like kids. But as the little neighbor boy with downs syndrome wiggled into his life and widow touches his heart, things can certainly change.

I liked this book which was a good, safe read. I particularly liked Red, a little boy who had Down's syndrome because he taught the other characters a lot about enjoying life and loving others.

Barbara Lohr writes sweet, heartwarming romance with a flair for fun. In her novels, feisty women take on hunky heroes and life’s issues. Family often figures in her stories. Her series include Windy City Romance, which includes jaunts to Savannah, Guatemala and Italy, and Man from Yesterday, set in a delightful Michigan beach town. Dark chocolate is her favorite food group, and she makes a mean p ...more
