For Jack Davenport, trying to get his ex-wife to understand why he ‘kidnapped’ her and brought her to Eternity Springs was just one more thing going wrong in his life lately. Catherine Blackburn isn’t very happy to have Jack back in her life and even though she is angry at his high-handedness in taking her away, she is determined to stick it out and maybe find peace with her ex-husband and the death of their marriage. But as Eternity Springs works its magic on these two, can past mistakes be healed in order for Jack and Cat to have a future…together?

I absolutely adore Emily March’s Eternity Springs series. There is something about this small town that is pure magic and the reader will fall in love with it as I did from the first book, Angel’s Rest. In NIGHTINGALE WAY, we finally find out who Jack Davenport is and what made him the way he is. I love Jack a lot since he showed up in Angel’s Rest (Book one). He has played supporting roles in the first four books (minus the e-novella, Mistletoe Mine) and here we see the past that has shaped Jack, the way his marriage to Cat quietly died after the death of their unborn child. Pain and memories haunt Jack and Cat and they steal the book the moment you open the first page to this latest story in the Eternity Springs series. The author does a great job in conveying the pain both Jack and Cat experienced and still dwell on now. Both grow in this novel as they find not all things are black and white; there are shades of grey in life. The story flows smoothly, the characters fairly leap of the page and you find yourself rooting for Jack and Cat to find forgiveness within themselves as well with each other.

NIGHTINGALE WAY is a story that weaves it’s spell around you as you catch up with old friends from past books, find out the end of a mystery that was a sub-plot through the past books. It was nice to see Jack and Cat reconnect, learn about one another five years after their painful end of their marriage and you can’t help but fall in love with the small town and their residents. The magic of this author’s Eternity Springs stories will steal your heart and give you pure reading entertainment. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this little town and hope you get to explore it as well.
