Forever in Good Hope

August 1st, 2017
Author: Cindy Kirk     Series: Good Hope #4

Delphinium “Fin” Bloom returns to her hometown with one goal: get the mayor—her former flame—to approve a location shoot in Good Hope. But business turns personal when the two become entangled in a fake engagement to comfort his ailing grandmother.

For Jeremy, the romantic façade hits close to his heart. Still reeling from the way things ended between Fin and him all those years ago, he sees the fake engagement as an opportunity to get her out of his system once and for all. But instead of laying the past to rest, Jeremy quickly discovers he can’t envision a life without her.

Now engaged to another man, Fin had long ago given up on the dream of a life with Jeremy. Why is it, then, that her fake engagement feels more genuine than her real one? As the sleepy days of summer come to a close in Good Hope, will Fin and Jeremy give love a second chance? Or will the revelation of a devastating secret put an end to the fairy tale?

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

I received an Advanced Reader copy of this book from the publisher and am voluntarily reviewing it.

After reading Fin’s sisters books and them finding their princes and HEA, I was glad to get to hers. I don’t know about others, but I am sort of a sap when it comes to a second chance love. I like how the characters already know each other- in some cases such as Fin and Jeremy’s, they still loved one another – and there is no drawn out plot or angst getting them together or falling in love as the chemistry is already there, it just needs a little push and rekindled.

I really liked Jeremy and how he was with Fin. He thought with their fake engagement that he’d get her out of his system once and for all, but fate has other things in store as the more he goes along with the farce, the more he wants Fin back in his life for real and permanent. I thought his grandmother Ruby was sweet with Fin – I wouldn’t mind having her for a gran even though she’s a bit sneaky and mischievous.

I wasn’t expecting Fin’s secret as to why she really pushed Jeremy away when they were younger. I thought something else might of happened, so it was a small surprise.

I will say that Eliza’s attitude change in this book sure surprised me as well. She went from being bossy and a bit snarky in the previous books to something a bit softer and kinder. Also she finally realized that she should let Jeremy go as she’d never truly have all of his heart like Fin does.

Now Xander, man he was a piece of work, only using people to get what he wanted, to further his film making career, and to get them to do his dirty work. I quite frankly didn’t like the man and I was glad Fin woke up and saw the light.

After finishing this, I can say I very much enjoyed it, and was glad Fin and Jeremy got their happy ending.
