When Eli Ross left Prince Edward Island to join the NHL, he left a broken family behind. More than a decade later, he's broke and headed home to an uncertain welcome. He wants to make things right with the family he wronged, but his mom's business partner isn't making it easy. To top it off, the coaching job he's accepted turns out to be far more difficult than he anticipated.

For years, Violet Donaghy has put everything she had into making Eli's mom's ceramics shop a success, and she's not eager to forgive the man who hurt the family that's taken her in as one of their own. But when the kiln at the shop starts a fire that nearly destroys the studio, she'll need all the help she can get to save the business and their summer income.

Can these two strong-willed people come together to mend the broken pieces of the Ross family? Or will the ghosts of the past continue to haunt them?

I enjoyed getting to know Violet. Her pain was heartbreaking and I thought she and Eli understood each other well. Their relationship worked well together. The book moved quickly, there was a lot of action and I never got bored or felt like things got stagnant. I also liked how Violet connected to God through her pottery work. 

I would have liked there to be more scenes about the other characters. I feel like most of the book was solely just Eli and Violet. As with the first book, I enjoyed this contemporary romance and this author has convinced me to read more of them.
