About the book:


“Heartfelt and delightful!” -RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author

USA Today bestselling author Debbie Mason welcomes readers to Harmony Harbor, a charming New England town that’s full of heart!

True love deserves a second chance….
FBI agent Michael Gallagher never dreamed that his job would bring him back to his hometown of Harmony Harbor. Or that one of his best leads would be the woman he once loved. Hell, the woman he still loves. He regrets the way they ended, and he’d do anything to make things right with her now. But first he needs to regain her trust…

Shay Angel wants to leave the past behind her. And that includes Michael Gallagher, the only man she ever let close enough to break her heart. But she needs his help to find her uncle and clear his name. She won’t hesitate to risk everything to save her family, but will she dare to risk her heart all over again?

Bonus story “A Fairytale Bride” by Hope Ramsay!
When a handsome stranger wanders into her bookstore one day, Melissa Portman begins to wonder if she’s finally found her own happily-ever-after.

Driftwood Cove by Debbie Mason is the fifth installment in the contemporary romance Harmony Harbor series. Each book in the series features a different couple so they can easily be read and understood as standalones but for those that follow the series there will be glimpses of previous characters in each new book.


Now I’m fairly new to Debbie Mason’s books myself but what I have found is she is an author that infuses her stories with a lot of action along with the building relationships. This story was actually a lot more suspenseful than I was expecting it to be but from the first moments of the action I was completely hooked on the story.

The characters in Driftwood Cove have actually already been introduced in one of the author’s previous works, Christmas with An Angel which was a short story in the same series. I hadn’t read this story myself but it was never noticeable to me that there was a past missing from a previous book as the author did a great job updating the characters in this particular story so nothing felt missing.

It didn’t take long at all to become invested in Shay and Michael’s story and the action they found themselves involved in but along with likable main characters the side characters are also well fleshed out and stand out themselves to further enhance the plot. With everything coming together so nicely in this installment I have definitely added Debbie Mason to my authors to catch up on list.

Also, this book is a special two for one deal including A Fairytale Bride by Hope Ramsay as a special bonus novella. I’d actually already read that novella myself but it was definitely a two thumbs up read that I’d also encourage romance fans to check out and pairing these two authors together seemed a perfect combination.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    • Thanks! She’s usually listed as contemporary but the two I’ve read that while they have been completely different from each other both had a ton of content to them with this one being pretty suspenseful. 🙂
