My Review

This is a delightful second chance romance, one in which the couple married in Vegas eight years ago then, after three days, went their separate ways. Maggie Kelley assumed he’d filed the paperwork to have their wedding annulled until she was planning to marry someone else and found out she’s still married to Finn. Travelling to visit him, hoping to get their marriage annulled finally, their attraction is still there, and his family enfold her in their delight . . . Can he woo her again or will this be the end of the road for them?

This is a story of family, opposites, plans and romance. The Garrity clan are diverse but so welcoming, taking Maggie in and making her feel like she fits right in amongst them. His grandmother and sister are particularly great characters, adding humour to the story. It has a great family vibe to it and the work to support cancer patients is heartwarming. Maggie is a strong, determined and independent young woman from a wealthy background. He’s a talented carpenter and boat builder. Can they work together to make their lives plain sailing or will there be storms ahead?

Thank you to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.


After years in the grueling California dating scene, Maggie Kelley has finally agreed to marry her Mr. Right Now. But there’s just one teensy problem…the county clerk lets her know that she’s technically still married to her Vegas fling: the best three days she ever had…and can’t actually remember. The moment she sees her very hot husband after eight years, with his works-well-with-his-hands attitude, she’s sure their wedding night must have been explosive.

The absolute last person Finnegan Garrity expected at his door is Maggie—his ultimate “one who got away.” Yet here she is in his small-town boat shop, looking just as adorable as ever…and wanting a divorce. Yeah, he has no intention of letting that happen. Now he’s got one week to convince Maggie that they’re still perfect for each other.

But he’s going to need more than just a do-over: he’s going to need a miracle.
