About the Author
Jeannie Moon has always been a romantic.
When she’s not spinning tales of her own, Jeannie works as a school librarian, thankful she has a job that allows her to immerse herself in books and call it work. Married to her high school sweetheart, Jeannie has three kids, three lovable dogs and a mischievous cat and lives in her hometown on Long Island, NY. If she’s more than ten miles away from salt water for any longer than a week, she gets twitchy.
More of her work can be found here:-
About the Book
Jordan Velsor didn’t want to need anyone. After dumping her cheating fiancé, caring for her sick dad, and nearly being crushed along with her car during a violent storm, she’s pretty much at her breaking point. If anyone needs some luck, it’s Jordan, but the last thing she wants is gorgeous Nick Rinaldi, her landlord’s grandson, hovering over her while she nurses a bad cold. The wounded Navy doctor seems too good to be true… which means he probably is.
Nick Rinaldi left the Navy broken and adrift, wondering if he would ever practice medicine again. When his grandparents’ tenant is almost killed by a falling tree during a storm, he discovers Jordan is not only in shock, but suffering from pneumonia. Not one to miss an opportunity to play white knight, Nick arrives at her cottage to take care of her during the storm… But the lovely teacher has a fierce independent streak, and as he learns more about her, he wants to do more than merely help.
Can Jordan and Nick let go or their separate pasts and seize their future together?
I requested this lovely book from Netgalley and I am so glad I did. I am a big lover of all book genres and can sit reading book after book after book until forever, but sometimes all I want is to read a romantic novel which is easy to read and hard to put down. I found THAT book from author, Jeannie Moon. My biggest regret is that I didn’t realise this book is one from a series. You Send Me is the 2nd book of the Compass Cove series. I am always intrigued when books intertwine characters; and I am eager to read the 1st in this series now too which is set in a small beach town, with a heart-warming community.
I have always been a sucker for a good romantic read and this book delivered! The character interactions and dialogue, along with the storyline helped create a very enjoyable story. I believed in the charming characters that I was reading about and read each page hungrily as I longed for Nick and Jordan to get together. I like how the authors writing style is so easy to read; making this book a real ‘lazy afternoon read’.
I am a true hopeless romantic and I enjoyed seeing how the story progressed from beginning to end.
It helped that I could ‘picture’ the ever so HOT doctor, Nick Rinaldi. He is very endearing and I found myself liking him from the very start. I had trouble liking Jordan at first, but I now realise that is how she is written. She is hardened due to pain caused by a previous, traumatic relationship and her guards are well and truly up when she first meets Nick. Jeannie, the author gave such great descriptions of the characters that they came to life on the pages.
If you like a good romance novel; something that will take you away from the daily grind and a feel-good story that you can relax with then give this one a go!
This book was a lovely read, but somewhere frustrating at times when I wanted to shake the two main characters – but I would definitely recommend.
I have already added the first in the Compass Cove Series to my TBR list – along with Jeannie’s other works. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Rating – 4 out of 5 Stars
