Overview

A real life medevac helicopter unit, Mercy Flight Base in Canandaigua, New York, served as the basis for Shay's research for this book. She is grateful for all the hours the dedicated pilots, paramedics and staff spent with her.

"One of the best features of this romance is the authentic air ambulance / search and rescue backdrop. I enjoyed reading this family focused romance." Muse Creations

Guardian Flight Base, a search and rescue air ambulance service, needs another helicopter and Alexis Castle has come to Catasaga Lake to see if her company, Castle Industries, deems them worthy of grant money. She soon finds out that they are very deserving, but not before she falls in love with their head pilot, Spence Keagan, a set-in-his ways, untrusting man. Both Spence and Alexis know getting involved smacks of impropriety, but they can’t help themselves. They’re further bound together when their two kids, both of whom are estranged from their parents, form a bond of their own. Complicated and intense, this relationship sets the stage for some high powered action and passionate love scenes.

"Shay's research is, of course, extensive, but she doesn't beat you over the head with it. The details of what it is to be part of a helicopter rescue team are there, but more importantly, her characters make it all human. Alexis's daughter and her father are well drawn, as are Spence's son and father. If you haven't read a Kathryn Shay book, I urge you to pick up this release, and get to know some wonderful characters." All About Romance

"FINALLY A FAMILY is a warm relationship drama that highlights the interchange between three generations of two dysfunctional families. The lead characters, their fathers, and their children behave like real people struggling to find a connection between one another. Kathryn Shay scores with another triumph that echoes the need of love and understanding to forge a bonded family." The Best Reviews

    Enjoyable relationship drama

    In Catasaga Lake, New York, head helicopter pilot Spencer Keagan is upset because his recent medical rescue failed and the patient died. The last thing he needs is to meet a female ¿suit¿ whose Castle Foundation may sponsor a new helicopter. Immediately, Alexis Castle and Spencer dislike one another. <P>Alexis suffers from an ulcer caused by her being the heir to her father¿s empire. She has come up to the lake on a vacation to heal her stomach and improve her terrible relationship with her teenage daughter. Coincidentally Spencer¿s neighbor is the cousin Alexis staying with. Like Alexis, Spencer is also barely on civil terms with his father and his adult son. As the summer moves along, Spencer and Alexis fall in love with one another, but more importantly, discover the true meaning of family. <P>FINALLY A FAMILY is a warm relationship drama that highlights the interchange between three generations of two dysfunctional families. The lead characters, their fathers, and their children behave like real people struggling to find a connection between one another. Kathryn Shay, whose firefighter series was a blazing success, scores with another triumph that echoes the need of love and understanding to forge a bonded family. <P>Harriet Klausner
