Shay Angel has had a rough road from childhood to the present day.  Torn from her family at an early age and sent to live with a beloved uncle until the meddling of a well-meaning but misdirected woman until she was taken from him as well.  Then when she finally has a chance at love events cause her to take a wrong turn and lose that man when she is sent off to prison.  Now, out of prison, making friends or at least one friend, she’s doing her best to stay on the straight and narrow.  But when her uncle goes missing she has no choice but to return to Harmony Harbor.

Michael Gallagher has returned home to Harmony Harbor mainly to take care of his aging dog, Atticus.  He’s also on the trail of a mobster.  He’s also looking for the man who may have made said mobster disappear.  That man happens to be Shay’s uncle.  There is also one woman that Michael has never forgotten—and now she’s on her way to Harmony Harbor. 

Can two people who have been torn apart find their way back to each other?  Especially when life and events seem to conspire to keep them apart?

I’ve been enjoying Debbie Mason’s Harmony Harbor series, looking forward to each new addition.  Every author seems to have one (or two) books that just aren’t as good as the others.  Of course, you can’t appreciate the really fantastic reads if you don’t have a few average ones along the way, right?  DRIFTWOOD COVE is the one that didn’t quite do it for me.  Colleen, Simon and Jasper are really the characters that I love the best in this series.  There were brief appearances by Colleen and Simon—but the story could have been told without their being there. 

Shay and Michael’s story was okay—it didn’t fit in with the rest of the series.  While it was a nice departure into romantic suspense it didn’t flow for me.  Cherry was the bright light in the story.  I loved her scenes.  What a fun characters.  I hope she has her own story in an upcoming book….there are still some single Gallaghers out there.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
