Kay Springsteen
Book 4 of Series
Heartsight, Heartsent, Operation: Christmas Hearts, Heartfelt
Contemporary Romance

"And he was pretty sure she had been glaring.  That silence had definitely been her glaring silence."

Three stories come together as their characters converge on the beach of North Carolina.  The story of Dan and Trish continue as life, family and their pasts threaten to come between them.  With the impending birth of their son, both are faced with the prospect of Dan's limitations once again.  Can their relationship last through the new stresses of another child.  Stresses at work, worries of taking care of a newborn when he is blind, and each of their varying streaks of independence, the struggle to keep their happily-ever-after could be the hardest they've ever faced.  Can they make their family work?

My Opinion: Sometimes, Happily-Ever-After takes a lot of on-going work.  This was an interesting continuation of the story from Heartsight, with a few characters from the other books in the series as well.  It was nice to see "old friends" as their lives continued to progress.  However, I felt a lack of romance in this one that left me wanting as Trish seemed to be less of the heroine I had liked and Dan seemed to have fallen back into similar problems he had faced before.  It was a good look at the continuing struggle the couple and new family faced, however, and a fun intermingling of the characters in the previous books.  The emotions were often raw and strong, as is often the case in Springsteen's books, pulling you into the stories and heads of those involved.  An interesting read, though a different interpretation of romance.

I was given a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
