loved this book. its one i wont get rid of.
Lila Sullivan's heart shattered to pieces when Jason Parker fled Pilgrim Cove years ago. He promised to return. That promise kept her going. Five years afterward, he sent her a message. Jason was never coming back and Lila should not wait for him any longer. He would not return for her, so he never found out that he had a daughter, Katie. ...................................... Four more years have passed. Katie is now eight-years-old. She's thrilled that she is about to get a dad and a sister. Her mom, Lila, is about to wed Adam Fielding, He is the dad of her best friend, Sara. Katie did not believe her life could get any better, until her real dad appeared. ......................................... Jason Parker has never gotten over Lila. Now he is finally hitting the big time. He does collaborations with singers to produce memorable music. His latest song, about Lila, is already on the radios. The song clearly tells the listeners his plans. Jason is ready to face his past. So everyone in Pilgrim Cove is waiting, wondering if Jason is honestly coming home. What will happen when he sees Lila again? What will happen when he finds out he has a daughter? ....................................... ***** Once again Sea View House in Pilgrim Cove, Massachusetts, is working its magic. The tale of Lila and Jason has been long anticipated. Well, it has finally hit the book stores. Was it worth the wait? OH YEAH! This is the most intense, most joyful, and most emotional episode of the series thus far. Every book in the 'Pilgrim Cove' series sits on my 'Keeper' shelf, never to be loaned out. Mine! Mine! Mine! If you have not read any of these books as yet, order them before it is too late. And Linda Barrett, should you read this, don't stop writing about this town and its residents until you (at least) tell the story of the vet. *****
On the night of graduation from Pilgrim Cove High School, his twin bother died in a DUI incident. Jason Parker, unable to cope, fled the sanctuary of his grieving family and left behind his girlfriend Lila Sullivan though he loved both. Over the years Jason became a successful songwriter, but avoided returning to his home where ghosts live in his mind. However, now nine years since he took flight, Jason finally comes home. To his shock, he finds he left a piece of himself with Lila as she has raised THE DAUGHTER HE NEVER KNEW by herself, but not for long as she is engaged to marry. Jason now realizes what he lost when he ran from his demons. He wants a second chance with the two women that mean everything to him, but the older one distrusts him to stay with them when the going gets rough and the younger one is warily adjusting to her biological father. --- The latest Pilgrim Cove romance focuses on two likable protagonists and the usual delightful support cast including stars from previous tales. Interestingly in spite of Jason¿s cavalier treatment of Lila and THE DAUGHTER HE NEVER KNEW, the audience will want a happy ending for this fine trio though like the lead pair readers will remain uncertain to the end whether Jason regains what he lost. As usual Linda Barrett escorts her fans through another fine Pilgrim Cove engagement. --- Harriet Klausner
