After another lonely Valentine’s Day, Gabi Romano decides to trade snow and cold for the sun and sand as she dog sits in the gorgeous Caribbean. But what she doesn’t anticipate is finding two passions- creating glass art and the mysterious Flynn Brogan, her next door neighbor. When she meets Flynn, sparks fly but when their island fling goes down in the flames of violence, Gabi finds out that the Flynn she knows is a façade and living a lie. Heartsick, Gabi returns to Eternity Springs and finds a way to move on with her life without Flynn and the passion they shared together.

Flynn knew his secrets would come out but he expected to be the one to tell Gabi himself, not the media but when he is caught by enemies he didn’t see coming, his desire to survive overcomes his desire to make things right with Gabi. Until Flynn moves to Eternity Springs for the winter and Gabi returns home for the Christmas holidays. This time the healing power of this small mountain town will show these two bruised warriors that love can heal the damaged of hearts and second chances are right there waiting for you…if you take the chance.

Emily March has penned a delightful addition to her Eternity Springs series with Gabi Romano’s story in DREAMWEAVER TRAIL. I love this series with a passion. It has characters you can’t help but fall in love with, a serene yet enjoyable setting that makes me long to visit anytime of the year and so much more. This is an author who is a wonderful storyteller, who knows how to hook her readers in and doesn’t let up until the very end of the book. She lets the characters take over and tell their story which is what makes this series so enjoyable in my opinion. The writing is tight, story flows smoothly and the few twists in the story left me flipping the pages quickly to see what happens next for Gabi and Flynn.

We met the intrepid Gabi Romano in earlier books in the Eternity Springs series and  now it was  her time to find her own happy ever after. Restless and listless, she finds her passion on the beaches of the lush Caribbean in the form of creating glass art. But that is just one side of her passion especially when she meets Flynn and then all bets are off. She falls head over heels and loves the time she is able to spend with him. Until danger and violence crash into their idyllic fling and tear these two apart. I got to admit I loved seeing Gabi find her passion for a career in the form of creating glass art. She is lively, strong and capable heroine who is more than a match for the damaged Flynn Brogan. Flynn is at first charming, delightful and quite sexy but after the danger that catches him unaware, he is damaged and living in the shadows. It will take all the strength Gabi has to heal his heart and soul in order for these two to have a chance at happy ever after. I got to admit Flynn grew on me after the attack that left Gabi reeling and running scared. Flynn became more than a rich man hiding out but a wounded warrior who hid his scars inside and out as best he could, letting the shadows hide him away. There was a line in the book that really spoke to me. It was about life is worth living, even if we stumble, it was worth it because life is made up of stumbles and falls. Flynn needed to learn that and Gabi was the perfect person to show him that even as the healing powers of Eternity Springs worked its magic on them. There were new characters introduced that left me eager to know more of and some returning ones that left a smile on my face. This is an author who knows how to create a wide diverse cast of characters to appeal to anyone who picks up one of these books.

DREAMWEAVER TRAIL can be read as a stand alone title in the series but it is best read in order because you might not get the back story as complete for some of the characters there. I got to admit I am eager to see where this author goes next in the series and can’t wait to start the next book in the series even if it is to reconnect with a few old friends as well as meet some new ones. If you enjoy small town stories with a touch of magic, hope and more then you will definitely find the Eternity Springs series to be right up your alley. So run-don’t walk-to grab DREAMWEAVER TRAIL and settle in for hours of reading pleasure.
