    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    On Lavender Lane is the third novel in JoAnn Ross’ Shelter Bay series. It is set in a small coastal town in Oregon. Everyone knows each other and they take care of each other. I would love to live in this small seaside town.

    JoAnn Ross is one of those authors that somehow is able to make each novel in a series better than the next. Once I was done reading the latest addition to the series I wondered how she would be able to top On Lavender Lane. Her novels are always very intricate with many twists and turns. She does a fantastic job at setting characters for future novels. I finish one of her novels and become super excited to read the next because I want to read what happens to all her characters.

    I love second chance stories because we all have someone that we wished didn’t get away. Maddy and Lucas are one of those couples that had a relationship way too young and they didn’t know quite how to handle it. Now years later they are both back in Shelter Bay after being away for years. The big question of the novel is whether or not Maddy can let her guard down and fall in love with Lucas all over again.

    Lucas and Maddy both have had a series of things happen to them in the years they were apart. You have to read to find out if it helps their reunion or not.

    I loved catching up with the other characters from the previous two books in the series. The family feel of the novels makes you feel like you are returning to a well loved vacation spot or to grandma’s house. You want to find out how the characters are doing and to see how they relate with the hero and heroine of the current book.

    Maddy is a well loved darling of Shelter Bay. Lucas is a retired Navy SEAL who forges a new career path. Their love story is sweet and fairytale like. I was jealous of Maddy in that she left an awful husband to reunite with a real hero who quickly becomes her personal hero.

    Another Delightful Shelter Bay Story

    On Lavender Lane by JoAnn Ross delivers a wonderful and compelling story about giving love a second chance.

    Celebrity TV chef Madeline Durand perfect world was turned upside down when her husband’s sex video it the internet. She jumps at the chance to return to Shelter Bay to help her beloved grandmother start a new business on the family farm. Maddie doesn’t know it but the man who broke her heart many years ago has returned to Shelter bay.

    Former Navy Seal Lucas Chaffee at a loss on the direction his life is now going to go. He had planned on working on restoring old homes with his father but his father’s sudden passing has him struggling to find a new path for himself. Lucas is thrilled that Maddy has come back home and vows to not let this second chance with her slip through his fingers. He knows he has a hard sell to ever get her to forgive him for what he did many years ago. But a Seal never gives up and Lucas has lots of town folks on his team.

    Maddy and Lucas begin the process of getting to know each other as adults. They both realize the connection they had as teens is still there but more powerful. Will Maddy be able to forgive Lucas his youthful mistake and take a chance on a love of a lifetime?

    Each book in this Shelter Bay series is a keeper. Lucas and Maddy’s story is no exception. Their chemistry reach and powerful and their meetings just snap and sizzle. Love getting a chance with each book to reconnect with old friends from previous books. You will enjoy On Lavender Lane, it’s a top notch romantic story.
