We met Daniel Hunter in Cross My Heart and now he gets to have his own happy ending. Back in law school Hunter met Molly Gifford and was instantly smitten. He tried multiple times to get her to go out with him but nothing ever panned out. Now Molly is in Hawken's Cove because her mom is engaged to Lilly's Uncle Mark. When Molly's mom's engagement ends, and Molly finds out who her real dad is, she decides to leave town and Hunter to go find the family she has always longed for.
After being gone a year, Molly all of a sudden shows up on Hunter's doorstep needing his help. Her real father has been charged with murder and Molly needs him to defend her dad. Hunter reluctantly agrees but decides he is walking away from Molly for good once the trial is over.
Throughout the investigation into the murder, Molly and Hunter grow close again and they both realize they never stopped loving the other....now if they could only trust the other.
It was really fun going through the mystery of who killed Molly's dad's partner and the final reveal was worth it. Throughout this story Molly realizes that she has finally found what she always wanted in her new family and especially in Hunter. I just loved all the crazy characters in Molly's new family. Grandma "Commander" Edna was a hoot as well as her macaw, Ollie. Overall this was a fun romance with a little bit of mystery thrown in and a perfect happy ending.
