Marry Me in Good Hope

December 20th, 2017
Author: Cindy Kirk    Series: Good Hope #6

Of all the things Hadley Newhouse expected to find in Good Hope, love wasn’t on the list.

The baker extraordinaire has spent the last three years hiding her past and holding her breath. It isn’t that she likes being evasive. She just doesn’t want to open old wounds. Still, Hadley understands there’s a fine line between discretion and disaster, and she’s pretty sure agreeing to work for sexy single-father David Chapin leaps right over it.

David knows firsthand the havoc secrets can wreak. It was a secret that made his ex-wife walk out on their family, and now a secret elopement has cost him his daughter’s longtime nanny. When he learns that Bloom’s Bake Shop will temporarily close, leaving Hadley without work, he immediately offers her a job. He already knows his daughter adores Hadley, and after a few days with the beautiful baker, David realizes he does too.

Hadley has always believed that happily ever after was meant for other people, not for her. Yet when David paints a picture of a life with him and his daughter, Hadley begins to believe her dream really could come true. But before that can happen, she must come clean. David deserves to know what really brought Hadley to Good Hope—even if hearing it means he’ll want Hadley gone for good.

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

With reading the previous books, Hadley’s secrets had me curious and wondering what she kept hidden and with Marry Me in Good Hope, we finally find out. As I first started this book, my mind was churning as what her secret was, so ideas were popping up in my head, which one was, is it a baby, is that her secret? Her not so secret was easy for me to figure out and then came the hunch as to, is Brynn her little girl she gave away almost 10 years ago? Brynn is adopted, the same age as Hadley’s little girl would be, plus, PLUS, they both have the same blonde hair and blue eyes. So you do the math. It wasn’t hard to figure this part out either as small clues were thrown here and there. This is the real reason Hadley first came to Good Hope, is to see how her daughter was fairing. Throughout this series, they always had a great connection to one another and when it came time to finally tell Byrnn the truth, she took it like a champ, finding herself lucky as she has two Mommy’s.

I will say, at least for me, Hadley and David’s romance felt rushed. I know they have known each other for a couple years and have shared conversations back and forth, but I just didn’t feel it as I did for the Bloom sisters. I felt like they went from 0 to 100 within mere minutes, perhaps I missed something while I opted out of reading Eliza’s story. For me, it was an ok read, not one of my favorites out of this series though.

I would like to thank Cindy and Book Funnel for letting me read an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review.
