by Taylor Danae Colbert
Miss Fix-It—that’s me. And when my sister and nephew are in danger, it’s my natural instinct to step in and get them out of Boston. The girl with the plan, always.
We land at the Rowan Inn—a charming bed-and-breakfast on the shores of the Chesapeake. A sweet little haven we’re hoping will bring us the peace we so desperately need.
Instead, it brings us Jesse Rowan, the gruff and grumpy son of the original owners. The same guy who is single-handedly sinking the Inn faster than an anchor in the bay. But we need a place to crash until I can figure out our next move, so I convince him to let us stay in exchange for help around the place.
At first, he’s rude, sarcastic, and standoffish. But after a few months of working around the Inn together, I realize he’s not as callous as he’d like us to think. And I realize that maybe the Inn isn’t the only project I want to take on. He needs some fixing, too.
But the Inn has to be just a pitstop for us. And as long as we’re on the run, Jesse Rowan can’t be my final destination.
Once again, I fall in love with Taylor Danae Colbert and her beautiful writing. The female characters in this story are to be applauded, the author included, for the strength and determination and passion they possessed. Sure, the protagonist Lena may have been on the rescue, again, to her sister and nephew who badly needed her help. But her sister’s situation against her abusive husband wasn’t something to be frowned upon. With the help of Jesse, the brooding hero who at first reluctantly offered his B&B to the poor sisters, Lena had devised a plan that would solve their domestic problems. Or so she thought..
Rowan Revived is a masterfully written book that digs into your soul and tugs at your heartstrings. Colbert once again enamored me with her characters and their personalities, as well as the picturesque town where Rowan Inn nestled. Love the chemistry between Lena and Jesse and their storyline that had me sobbing and sniffling in the middle of the night, yet still made me hopeful for a brighter, sweeter, better tomorrow.
This is definitely another winner from TDC!
