Twenty-one years ago, a four-year old child was kidnapped from his front yard. He was never found. Until now.
All Nat Walker wants is to make his late father’s dream of running a father/son woodworking shop come true. And he had the perfect building in mind—until the new guy in town came in and bought the place right out from under him. The fact that the new guy is adorable means nothing. For all Nat cares, he can take his new dance studio and waltz back to New York City.
Professional dancer Quinn Carroll couldn’t be happier that he made the move to the small town of Lakeshore, Oregon. Sure, it’s not New York, but now he’ll be living closer to his adoptive brother. And since his studio will be the only one in the area, he should get enough business to keep him busy. Besides, there’s something about this place that seems familiar...
He doesn’t expect to fall hard for the local, grumpy woodworker who won’t even smile at him.
Or find out that his entire life is a lie.
The story starts (just like the blurb) where a four year old twin boy is kidnapped.
Some reads are so comfortable and warm. With people who want to do good in life and not make each other sad or bad on purpose. This read is not only a romance, it’s more a story about life and with a lot of family matters.
The progress was natural, no overdone drama. Even their fights and make ups were lovely and kind. I hiccuped more than once and let some tears flow.
Quinn is new in town following his adoptive brother Shay around who lives already in Lakeshore, Oregon. Quinn is a professional dancer and just opened a dance school. In front he meets the big grumpy Nat. Nat thinks Quinn is lovable but doesn’t want anything to do with him.
Quinn is shockingly surprised when he finds out he has a twin and also an older brother.
Evan and Court never gave up looking for their missing brother.
Three families get involved with each other, all with their own baggage.
While Nat is suffering with the fact he couldn’t save his father, Quinn is going down under feelings of guilt... towards old and new family.
We meet Nat’s family, including children and a dog, with all lovable personalities, who played a big part in Nat’s healing process. We meet Quinn and Shay, their family and last but not least Evan and Court’s. The big tragedy brings them all together.
The story was vast, and had a depth to it. It was written in a captivating and lovely way.
All personalities were honest and all their emotions felt real.
The romance is not the main point, for me; no problem at all.
A kind, emotional journey with a good time- and story line.
