He's ready to settle down…with or without her

Scott Abbott has always loved Isabelle Hawks. And he's always been her rock. Patient, dependable, strong. But lately, she's been acting like that rock is weighing her down. With her art career taking off, Isabelle has been spending less and less time in Indian Lake…and with him. Scott isn't even sure what they are to each other anymore. They might be friends with a history, but it sure doesn't feel like a future. Maybe it's time for Scott to set her free and focus on his own dreams. A real home. A family. All the things he had hoped to share with her…

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ohh Scott has stolen my heart. What kind of man immediately falls in love with two children he has never seen before. This man is beyond breath taking. These children need him more than ever and he rescues them just as any angel should!

I had my reservations about Isabella she was so focused on her she really did not make time for anyone but herself. She grew as the book came along. I ended up liking her the more I followed her.

This book has made me fall in love with Indian Lake and I think I am gonna have to go back and read the rest of the series. I think this may be a first of Lanigan's books for me but will not be my last!
