What a beautiful, heartwarming, heart wrenching debut romance from TJ O’Shea. If I had not known this was a debut novel I would have assumed that it was penned by a more experienced writer.

The books starts off as a cheery story of a off duty police detective, Morgan Kelly, helping a stranger change a flat tire during a snowstorm. That stranger is Dr. Mei Sharpe, who works at the Sheriff’s department morgue. We learn that Morgan has a heart of gold and goes out of her way to help people in need. But during that fateful meeting, Morgan not only helps her, but feels a connection to the recently widowed Mei.

After Morgan and Mei start spending time together and dating (not dating, you’ll have to read the book), they begin to fall for each other. Then the story enters the gritty phase where each person begins to have doubts, not so much about their love for each other, but rather about other facets of their lives that impede their relationship. For Mei it involves letting go of Allan, her husband of thirty years, and for Morgan it’s reflecting of how she grew up and her fear of abandonment.

I would rate this stellar debut 4.25 stars with high recommendations to other readers. I can’t wait for future books by this author.

I received an ARC from Bella Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
