From #1 NY Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes a romantic and suspenseful new novel in the popular family series, The Callaways. 

Nicole met Ryan when he was a handsome, cocky teenager with a desire to fly high above the clouds. Ryan encouraged Nicole to dream big and promised her a lifetime of happiness, but several years into their lives together, they were faced with obstacles bigger than either had ever imagined. Their love faltered. They lost their way and considered what had once been unthinkable—the end of their forever. 

But now fate throws them a curve, an event that forces them back together, that strips their emotions bare and is both terrifying and strangely unifying. For the first time in a long while they have to face each other, and not only talk but also listen, because their lives depend on it—not only their lives, but also the life of their six-year-old son. 

Secrets and lies frame a perilous journey to the truth that takes Nicole and Ryan to Angel's Bay, a place where miracles sometimes happen. But in order to get that miracle, Nicole and Ryan must work together and learn how to trust and love each other again. Only then will they be able to save their family and find their way to happily ever after.

Cover: Cute, romantic cover, that I love so much.  Not my favourite cover of the series, but I still really like it.

This is the fourth installment of the Callaways series.
This is a series I've thoroughly enjoyed.
Each story focuses on a member of the Callaway family finding romance.
This book focuses on Nicole and Ryan.  Teenage sweethearts, that's marriage has broken down under the pressures of raising their autistic son Brandon.
But when Brandon is kidnapped, they come together to track him down, and in doing so, realise they should never have let themselves drift apart.
I loved this addition to the series.  I liked that it differed to the previous books, in that it wasn't about two people meeting for the first time, but focuses on two people that have already met and been married for several years.  And focusing on them coming back together.
I loved Nicole and Ryan.  It was sad to see their marriage break down in the previous books, seeing their inevitable separation.
So I loved seeing them work together, fight to get Brandon back, and you could see that they never stopped loving each other.  I also enjoyed seeing flash back scenes to when Nicole and Ryan met, and when they were a young couple in high school.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely recommend this series to fans of contemporary romance books.

3.5/5 stars.

Read from March 22 to 24, 2015
