Robin Wells takes us back to Chartreuse, Louisiana, for a deeply moving story of forgiveness and second chances.
STILL THE ONE
After Katie Charmaine's husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she's always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town . . . with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.
Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn't felt in years. But he's in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and-worst of all-pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to each other?

Review: This is a contemporary romance. One that shows first love and what can happen after that first true love. There's love, romance, drama and second chances. A child, given up for adoption, finds her father after her adoptive parents die--she happens to be pregnant herself. The characters are very well developed, but I do have to say that there is just so much tragedy going on in this book. Death, bad childhoods, adoption, more death. I just really couldn't get into this book, nor could I like it. If you like the heart breaking, have to over come every obstacle that you can think of--this book is a PERFECT fit for you.
