Feather's Last Dance
"If she stopped pretending to be fearless, fear would gobble her up."
Faith Featherstone has never really gotten it together. In trouble since she was a teen, she suddenly is faced with the chance to start over again. Five years ago she gave up her baby, giving him to her sister to raise. When her sister and brother-in-law are lost at sea, guardianship of Faith's son returns to her. But can she keep him? Because Matthew's real father believes himself to be the boy's uncle and is fighting to take the boy from her. Being thrown together makes old sparks fly, but her past deceit lies between them. Can she prove she can be a good mother? And what will happen if Justin finds out he's not an uncle, but rather a father?
My Opinion: This was a pretty good book with a rekindled love. There were a lot of lies for the couple to overcome and definite differences to reconcile. But the sparks still fly and make it exciting right from the start. It was done well, mostly believable and fun. Justin is strong, prideful and at the core a good man. Faith is a little harder to relate to, but is a good character as well. Matthew, though five, acts more like he's two or three, but he's still cute. I would have liked a little more action, but it was a good, relaxing read with lots of fun scenes.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and review are 100% my own.
