The Abalone Shell by Suzie O'Connell

The message was undeniable... Fight for her.

Six months after her divorce, Hope St. Cloud is struggling with her guilt over leaving her daughter's father. She needs a fresh perspective, and she knows exactly how to find it--by spending the summer at her family's cottage in Sea Glass Cove. Surrounded by abundant peace and fond childhood memories, Hope and her daughter will be able to find a new rhythm with just the two of them.

Nothing could've prepared her for the immediate and tantalizing attraction to local gallery owner Owen McKinney. Or for his instant connection with her shy daughter.

It's been three years since the accident that stole everything Owen held dear. That's more than enough time to mourn and move on, but he can't seem to let go... until Hope and her adorable daughter stroll into his gallery. In them, he finds everything he lost--all the joy and adventure that comes with being a family. But Hope's divorce is still fresh, and he's afraid she might've made a mistake divorcing her husband.

Then a sign straight from his past makes it clear that Hope and her daughter are his future, and he can't let them walk away.

A lovely sweet romance. Two people who have been hurt, struggling to heal find one another and hope is renewed. So well written it was a pleasure to read. The descriptions of the locale made me want to pack my bags and head to Sea Glass Cove. It was refreshing to have decent caring characters you could cheer for and sex was not front and center. This was a free read which I really appreciate but having read it, I would gladly pay. Definitely will be reading more by this talented author.
