Will the Second Time Be Better?

Thank you to Ballantine Books  for a copy of this novel Nightingale Way by Emily March.  This novel was given to me in exchange for an honest review.  I received no financial compensation for this review.

It is time to return to Eternity Springs.  In this novel we meet Jack and Cat.  Their story is not like some of the other couples you have met in Eternity springs.  The main difference is that they are divorced.   I enjoyed the last Eternity springs novel and could not wait to share this one.


Cat lives in Washington D.C.  She also volunteers with some local charities.   Cat published a story recently about a dog fighting ring through a blog she publishes. One day a bomb goes off in her dining room.  She is then spirited away to Eternity Springs by her ex-husband Jack.  He was following orders of Cat’s mother Melinda.  She and Jack both work for the government.  Cat does not want to stay at first but adapts as the story progresses.   Jack has always been the hero and helping others; since his family died in a fire.  Yet Cat his ex-wife has never felt close to him.  There is a lot of history between the two of them.  Jack leaves her to go to help a friend.  He returns unable to help, and this friend’s death destroys Jack.  Jack makes some decisions that has others including his ex-wife concerned.  Will they be able to help?  Will Jack and Cat get back together?

My Thoughts:

This novel just did not do it for me.  I found the story interesting but not to stick with. I had trouble with the pacing of it.  The characters of Eternity Springs are wonderful!  It has a different kind of romance plot bringing a divorced couple back together.  I just did not enjoy it as much as other novels by the author.  Emily March is a wonderful writer.  The Eternity Springs series is worth a reader’s time.  I would definitely read more!

Emily March’s current novel is Christmas in Eternity Springs.  You find Emily on Facebook or her website.
