A quick and charming contemporary romance reunites high school sweethearts when Harmony returns to Willow Springs. Birley never forgot his first love, and when he hears that she has returned and is single like him, he wastes no time reconnecting. Still trying to figure her life out, Harmony only plans to stay in Willow Springs for a month, but her old feelings for Birley make her want to extend her stay.

As Harmony starts over after the death of her unfaithful, soon-to-be ex-husband, she learns s

A quick, steamy, second chance, love story. I really felt for both characters, Brinley and Harmony. Both we're likeable and strong in their own ways.

If your looking for a quick read with romance, a touch of suspense, and family, this is the book for you!

I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

I’m always surprised after reading several of the Deerborurne Inn books, how each one is fresh and new, including Harmony’s Embrace, my latest venture to the imaginary Vermont Town of Willow Springs, and its Deerbourne Inn.

Birley Haynes, the male lead character, is trying to get on with life after divorce, raise his kids, and keep his music school afloat. Someone is trying to sabotage the school adds trauma to his already hect

A wonderful follow-up to the Lyrical Embrace story, Harmony’s Embrace returns us to Willow Springs, Vermont and delivers another incredible story.

This tells the story of Birley Haynes, a divorcee trying his best to raise his kids while helping to run his family's music academy.

This story will grab your attention immediately and hold it from the first page until the last. The familiarity between Birley and Harmony, stemming from their high school sweetheart history, will have you rooting for them from their first meeting on the page. The reader grows to know them as teenagers and adults, thereby gaining a true sense of their growth over the years. The element of danger infused throughout the story provides an additional dose of excitement as the pages keep turning. The ...more

Second chance romances are the things dreams are made of and she had no idea that she had the chance after all she had been through. He was struggling trying to keep up with the chains that came with taking over the school. It didn't help that someone had targeted the music school putting him and his family in danger. A battle to the finish this author not only gives us the romance and battles to make this second chance a reality she also throws in some suspense to keep you turning the pages for ...more

Easily read in one sitting, Harmony’s Embrace is a beautifully written second-chance romance set during a holiday season in small-town Vermont. From the start, I found myself rooting for the delightfully flawed protagonists—Harmony and Birley—as they struggle to overcome pasts fraught with heartache and abuse. I strongly recommend setting aside large blocks of uninterrupted reading time. You won’t be able to put this book down.

Well done, Ms. Daulton!

Second chance romance which is perfect as a cozy holiday read! I devoured this in one sitting. The chemistry between the main characters was great. I loved how the book handled both characters' pasts, including a slightly darker one with Harmony, but it's not a heavy read.

I enjoyed this well-written story with a great cast of diverse characters. Ms. Daulton tells her story well and develops characters even better. This is a perfect story for a quick read that fits this Holiday Season.

Harmony's Embrace is a quick, sweet second chance romance. With just the right mix of chemistry, the characters are beautifully developed and realistic, with baggage and backgrounds that accompany them into their potential new future. I enjoyed it tremendously!
First Holiday read of the season
