Series: Eternity Springs, #8 (each book may be read as a standalone)
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Inspirational Romance, Romantic-Suspense
After another lonely Valentine’s Day, Gabi Romano trades mountain snowfall for sunshine and sand at a luxurious Caribbean getaway. There she discovers a hidden talent for creating fine art glass. She also meets Flynn Brogan, the sexy caretaker next door who brings her fantasies to life. But when violence interrupts their romantic interlude, she learns that Flynn is living a lie. Heartsick, she decides to concentrate on her craft. Playing with fire is safer than loving a man like Flynn.
Flynn is determined to make things right with Gabi—until his enemies interfere. Now damaged and driven by a need he cannot define, he seeks out Gabi’s Colorado community, hoping for reconciliation and some peace. But he never imagined a place like Eternity Springs, where lives are changed, second chances are given, and the possibility exists for two wounded souls to find their way home . . . to each other.
I am not often rendered speechless – as those who know me are well aware. However, of all of the wonderful books I’ve read thus far in the Eternity Springs series, Dreamweaver Trail has had the greatest emotional impact on me. Two hours after I finished it, I was still awake, turning the story over in my mind, thinking of the shocking twists and turns I never saw coming. I laughed, I cried (four times), and I was absolutely terrified twice in the course of this amazing story.
Flynn Brogan is a man trying to start a new life, a private life, out from under the intense pain and publicly humiliating scrutiny of his past. He divests himself of nearly everything that connects him to his old life, and escapes to a tropical island to take stock of his future – and take refuge from the relentless paparazzi. There he meets Gabriella Romano, a beautiful, courageous, charismatic woman who has come to the same island in search of meaning – to find the passion she lost after a traumatic event in Eternity Springs.
The chemistry is initially wary, but ultimately overpowering and they fall under each other’s spell. Their passion is palpable. They are truly living the dream … until … it all falls apart in the worst possible way. In a heartbeat, they are thrust into a violent confrontation that will change them both. And it only gets worse before it gets better.
Fortunately, they end up — separately — in Eternity Springs, hiding from what happened and hiding from each other. Lost, confused, hurting, and yearning for the dream they shared oh-so-briefly, the healing power of Eternity Springs works its magic. It’s a tough road – Flynn has been badly damaged, nearly beyond repair. Only the strength of a woman with a warrior’s heart can tear down the walls and allow him to truly live again.
I can’t say enough about the power of this book and the talent of its author. If you haven’t started this series, or if you haven’t read this particular novel from it, do not wait another day.
