My Review:

Former Navy SEAL Sax Douchett returns to Shelter Bay his hometown to try to put his former life behind him and start fresh.  He's hailed a hero but he doesn't believe he deserved the title .  Then his dog discovers a human bone on his property which bring his high school crush Sheriff Kara Conway back into his life.  Sax also has to contend with his ghostly comrades his former seal buddies who cheer him on, tease him and laugh with him.

Sheriff Kara Conway has moved back to Shelter Bay with her young son Trey after the death of her father.  She took over for him and both her and Trey are trying to rebuild their lives after the death of Jared Conway.  Jared died in the line of duty and she is hoping Shelter Bay would help them.

Sax and Kara's relationship was very heartwarming and I'm glad that it slowly built up to a loving one from friendship.  Kara realizes that Sax is a great male role model for her son Trey because he needs one in his life.

I really enjoyed the secondary romance between Faith (Kara's mother) and her husband's best friend because it shows you can find love for the second time around.

Second chance love stories are always so sweet. I really like that it features a SEAL which adds a nice touch to small-town stories.
