Still the One

Title: Still the One
Series: Deep Haven Collection #1
Author: Rachel D. Russell presented by Susan May Warren
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date: January 12, 2021
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

It’s never too late to finish a love story… 

Cole Barrett, former Army Ranger, has a new mission objective. Sell his grandfather’s house and put Deep Haven, a place that holds too many hurts, in his rearview mirror as fast as possible. Recently divorced, single, and unattached, Cole just wants a new life as a US Marshal. One where he can forget the past and start new. 

Unfortunately, there’s a tenant in the garage apartment who’s refusing to move. Even worse? It’s his childhood crush, Megan Carter, and her son. 

Wedding planner and single mom Megan Carter loves Deep Haven. To her, it’s the place where she makes dreams come true—at least, everyone else’s. Her big dream is to purchase the Black Spruce Bed & Breakfast to turn it into a premier event venue and, if she can stay booked for enough weddings over winter, she’ll have the needed funds to buy the inn, move out of Grandpa Barrett’s garage apartment, and finally give her nine-year-old son, Josh, the life he deserves. She just needs four thousand dollars in the next thirty days. 

Still, she’s oh, so close…until Cole Barrett returns to Deep Haven. Even if he’s not back to fulfill a silly childhood promise to marry her, but she never expected him to evict her! The last thing she needs is more expenses. Or for another man to walk into her heart…and break it. 

When a blizzard strikes Deep Haven, and Megan is overrun with wedding catastrophes, it takes a former Ranger to step in and help. Besides, the more he comes to her rescue, the sooner she’ll be able to move out…and he can move on. And that’s what they both want, right? 

Return to Deep Haven with this magical tale about the one who got away…and came back.

Welcome back to Deep Haven a wonderful small town community filled with familiar faces, in this heartwarming romance of faith and second chances. 

Childhood friends reunite unexpectedly when Cole Barrett returns to Deep Haven to sell his grandfather's property and little does he know that the woman he is evicting is his former best friend, Megan, and her young son, Josh. Cole is a man who likes to have a plan and have his next move plotted out, but coming back to Deep Haven has him questioning it all. I liked how he takes the times to spend time with Josh and be a positive role model in his life. 

This was such an enjoyable read, with fantastic characters and great character development and relationship building throughout the storyline. I loved the close knit community, and how they joyfully welcome Cole into their lives, inviting him to take part in everyday occurrences. This book pulled me in from the beginning and even though it's been a while since I've read a Deep Haven book, I felt like I'd never left, also I think that someone new to the world of Susan May Warren would have no trouble fitting right in. 

Overall, a engaging second chance romance filled with faith, and an amazing community that pulls together to help each other out. Megan is a amazing mother, who wants the best for her son, I admired her faith and her quick thinking. You won't want to miss this fantastic Deep Haven story!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
