Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
Everyone has that special person in their life that they wished they could have had more with. The would of, should have but didn't is a regret that surrounds the friendship of Rennie and Graham. Their connection lasted through time but neither one of them told the other of their true feelings, but when a chance encounter happens and Graham leans on Rennie to get through a family crisis the flood gates instantly open and the future is theirs for the taking. Will Rennie admit to Graham and to her ...more

I’m a little on the fence in recommending this book.

This book is the second in the Cape Harbor series. Because I wasn’t familiar with the first book (After All), I decided to read it before embarking on Until Then. I’m very glad I did because, while this book could serve as a stand-alone novel, I think many nuances would be missed without the in-depth background and character development of the first.

It all began with the tragic death of Austin Woods, a young commercial fisherman, who set out w

Rennie Wallace has known Graham Chamberlain forever and had even hooked up with him in her past days of being young, needy and single, but as the story starts she is now a successful lawyer. She has a long term boyfriend, also a successful professional. They live miles away from each other, but their relationship is strong and they meet up regularly. They are in love and expect to become man and wife in the future. Their romance is all the more special and according to the old adage, absence mak ...more

I enjoy reading Heidi’s work. The three members of 4225 West (Beaumont series) books were the best of the entire series for my reading tastes, so I jumped at the chance to read, After All, the first book in the Cape Harbor series. I loved it and when an opportunity to read Until Then came up, I wasn’t missing out!
Heidi has a great talent in creating three-dimensional places that become an extra character. Cape Harbor is lively and full of fun people, great locations and it’s terrific to return t

This is the second book in the Cape Harbor series and while it is a standalone romance, this builds on the prior story a bit and therefore, would be best to be read in order. That said, I enjoyed this book a lot. In this book, we see Graham and Rennie achieve their HEA. The underlying arc of the series revolves the death of a hometown hero, Austin, who drowned when he went out on a boat. Rennie is best friends with Austin's ex while Graham is the twin brother of the man who went out with Austin ...more

Until Then gives us Graham and Rennie's story. While reading the first book in this series, After All, is not a must, please do so you will understand the true struggles, trials and tribulations of this great case of characters from Cape Harbor. The basis of the series is a small group of friends, their amazing bond as youth, the terrible tragedy that tore them apart, and then each couple's journey to healing and HOPEFULLY the series will end with the gang healed.

It's heartbreaking to read the

Until Then by Heidi McLaughlin a five-star read that you would wait until forever for. This is number two in the Cape Harbour series but they could be read as stand-alone as they each feature a different couple of Cape Harbour, that being said I would recommend you read After all the first book before this one, as it tells the ack story of the tragedy of the cove, this one picks up the story and I hope the next will finally reveal the truth. Graham and Rennie are so opposite it really shouldn’t ...more

Until Then is the second book in the Cape Harbor Series. While it stands alone easily, I would recommend reading then in order. Most of the turmoil swirls around an event, and we are seeing how the characters’ lives are touched by it in each book. We are now getting Graham’s story; through flashbacks we get a lot of history, some of it is repetitive. There is quite a bit going on, but it works. We have a second chance with Rennie, the addiction of his brother, the growth of Graham as he

Until Then is Graham and Rennie's story. Their second chance at getting their love for each other right.  Fighting what they thought were impossibilities.  Working as a team to protect their loved ones all while building a stronger foundation for their love.  

Until Then is the 2nd book in the Cape Harbor series. It can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend you read After All first.  After All introduces you to Cape Harbor, the town's tragedy,  the tight knit group of friends & the char

I absolutely love everything that Heidi McLaughlin writes. Until Then is the second book in her Cape Harbor series. This book tells the story of Graham and Rennie who have been friends for ever.

Graham and Rennie have known each other for many years. They had a brief relationship and then became friends with benefits. They eventually went their separate ways and found new long term relationships. Graham's family issues caused his relationship to end and brought Rennie back into his life. Old fee

What a heartwarming story about sacrificing your future for the good of your family! 5+ stars for this one! It is a must read!
Here we have Graham's story. He left behind his life in California, to head back home to Cape Harbor to help his brother heal, and his family cope. He's running his families bar now, his brother is still a mess, and he's wondering if it was all worth what he left behind.
Rennie is happy, she's got a great boyfriend, great job, but because of her and her boyfriend's jobs t

Until Then is the second book in the Cape Harbor series. This is slated as a standalone, but I would recommend reading book one first as this story builds on that first one. Until Then tells the story of Graham and Rennie. They have been friends forever, but now that they are both back in town there's a spark there that they can't deny. To complicate matters, Rennie has a boyfriend and a life in the city. Graham is back home to care for his brother.

Netgalley ♥️ Graham loves computers. Rennie is his best friend. He met Rennie when she visited Brooklyn in Cape Harbor. He instantly had feelings. I like the name Brooklyn. Rennie became a lawyer.Graham has a girlfriend Monica who wants to get married. Austin goes missing on a sailing accident. Then it's fifteen years later. Rennie gets a promotion due in part to her being alone which breaks her heart. It's said she didn't earn it. She never wanted children. She meets Theo and falls for him . Gr ...more

I hope this is not the ending of this series. Love these characters and this story

Rennie has it all- she is in love. A successful lawyer. She had wonderful friends. But she’s lonely. And there’s one person who makes her feel HOME

Graham gave it all up to come back home to care for hai brother and friends when Austin died. Should the past stay there or is Rennie coming back into his life real.

This is a story of finding self, giving up the past but also
Letting it guide you to the future

One of the very best second chance romances I've read this year, Graham and Rennie's story is like discovering the heart of the ocean. Book 2 in the Cape Harbor series plunges readers into an emotional journey with these characters who are long overdue for some calm waters along the way. This must read will have you wishing you could pull up a stool at the Whale Spout and bask in all that is this charming seaside town. Five stars for an excellent follow up that leaves me excited for more novels ...more

One of the best series I’ve read!! It’s full of emotions, angst, with second chances for romance and redemption. Rennie and Graham’s journey towards their own happiness and desires is powerful and one that you do not want to miss out on. Be warned that once you start their story you won’t be able to put it down. Plus you get to fall in love all over again with the rest of the characters. Make sure you order this book so you don’t miss out.

Until Then is book 2 in the Cape Harbor series by Heidi McLaughlin and can be read as a standalone but I recommend you read the first book After All first. This book is Graham and Rennie’s story and it is a beautifully written second chance romance. Their story is really heartbreaking and emotional but will melt your heart and end with a smile. What a great read!!! I really loved this book and highly recommend it.

I’m not sure if I’ve just outgrown this author or what, but this is the second story in a row that I just enjoyed it a little. Which is sad since she is usually a go to author for me. I cannot pinpoint why I didn’t enjoy this one more though.
Overall, this story was decent, but not one of my favorites.

Omg I couldn’t wait to read this book. I absolutely love Graham and couldn’t wait to read his story. If you love a second chance romance then look no further. Graham & Rennie are absolutely perfect and amazing together. There story will hold your attention until the end. I’m hoping Grady’s story will be next.

I received this Advanced Reader Copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This second book in the Cape Harbor series does not disappoint. It could stand alone, but works well with book one. I really enjoyed getting to know the previous characters a bit more. I will say I thought one of the subplots was abruptly shifted, and felt a little flat in the middle, but it resolved well by the end. I will definitely keep reading the series!

While this book could be read as a standalone I highly recommend reading the first book in the series you will appreciate the story that much more. I enjoyed this story and the sacrifices Graham made for his brother Grady. I felt Rennie and Graham were lacking a little in love. Overall great story.

I received this ARC from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

What a rollercoaster of emotions and what a well written tale. is one of my first sci-fi novel. A heartwarming story. Would love to add it to my library, provided I get it in India,
I know am going to be the minority here, but I did not really enjoy this book. I struggled to even read it. I felt like there was more focus on the brother and his problems than the main character. I just made me think that it was a build up for the next book. Nothing memorable.

Graham is one loyal loving compassionate man. He will do anything for the ones he loves. Rennie is one amazing compassionate woman. They have a history together. They both have a lot of stuff to work through. The chemistry between them is off the charts. Could not wait to see where the story would go. A must read.

Warning!!! Until Then may result in a book hangover. I finished this book more than 24 hours ago but feared writing the review would take away the bliss, the satisfaction, the extreme pleasure I felt from reading Until Then. I want to remain in the Zen moment but I also want others to get excited about reading this amazing story. I have waited for Graham's story and it was worth every day, every minute I have waited.

I have waited because Graham deserves a happily ever after. Graham has earned a

This book is fantastic. It shows that no matter what you can always go home maybe not to the exact same place it was before but most times the changes are wonderful and you have relationships at a much more intense level. Heidi writes such descriptive phrases that you can almost feel the boat below you and the waves along the beach as the tide returns for the day. The taco cart leaves you being hungry and wishing you could get a fish taco and sit by the beach relaxing and just hearing the waves ...more
