I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Widowed psychologist Maggie McShae is ready to find someone who won’t make her heart beat fast, her knees grow weak, or make her feel hot and cold at the same time. No one she can really love, because love brings too much pain. Drew Poulos, son of a billionaire, is hiding out in Mirror Lake, working at his brothers’ brandy company. He inspires those very feelings Maggie’s determined to avoid. The hunky businessman, who left his high society bride at the altar, is the last person she’d ever seriously date…but he might just be perfect for a fling…
Drew’s too heartbroken to ever trust any woman again, but the sexy psychologist is the perfect person to deflect his family’s attention as his brother marries the woman Drew once thought was his. As sparks fly, two injured hearts might just find that true love can be even better the second time around….

In ” an Oyster Shell – A steamy heartwarming romance.

The Pearls –  The characters were my favorite part of this story they were strong and distinguished. Maggie is a strong heroine almost to a fault. It’s nice to see in the romance. She kind of is more of the dictator in what happens which is not always the case. The hero Drew had quite a bit of character growth.

The small town setting was nice. Mirror lake seems like a quaint town. The characters that come around in this little town make the book comical at times. They add a nice depth to the story.

I liked the romance from Drew’s side of thing he is a playboy that wants to reform with Maggie. Maggie helps heal some hurts. Maggie is not as strong or fast in the healing department and it takes her longer to get on board. It was frustrating at times like she took Drew for granted. Drew hung in there and the ending is satisfying.

The Sand – Maggie was really stubborn at times and it became infuriating at times. She was unreasonable and irrational on occasion. I didn’t like that.

3.5 Pearls!

About Miranda Liasson

I won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award in 2013 for a story that became my first published novel, THIS THING CALLED LOVE, which debuted from Montlake Romance as a Kindle First selection in 2015. Like most of my novels, it’s lighthearted but also, like life, has a little bit of heartache in it too.

One of the best reviews I received about THIS LOVE OF MINE, my second Mirror Lake book, said, “This book is full of regret, sadness, loss, longing, friendship, family, love, laughter, and resolve. It would be a good book for anyone. A book that shows you your odds can always get better with friends, family, and loved ones in your corner.” This is everything I aspire my books to be!

My newest book, CAN’T STOP LOVING YOU (Dec., 2016) is an emotional second-chance love story about love, loss, friendship, family, and the journey of one woman to confront her past in order to move onto her future. I hope you enjoy it!

I write romance because I love stories about the experience of being human, and love is the universal experience we all share. I also love stories that have happy endings and make me laugh. I hope my stories make you laugh a little, too.

I live in Northeast Ohio with my husband, three children and my office mate Posey, a rescue cat with more attitude than my kids!

I love to hear from readers!
