One woman, three men, and a beach romance as unpredictable as the riptide. . .
Being a widow at the age of forty-four was never in Jude Hawthorne’s plans. After her husband’s death, she’s left with her family’s beach restaurant and two nearly-grown children. The last thing she’s looking for is another chance at love.

However, if her husband’s best friends, the Posse, have anything to say about it, love is just what she’s going to get. The Posse is determined to take care of Jude, and when they decide the best way to do that is for one of them to sweep her off her feet, three begin to vie for her affections. But only one can reach her heart.

In a story of friendship, loss and second chances, Jude will learn her life is far from being over.

Can I give this book 10 stars????? I love this author she switched genre with this book, but what a wonderful, loving story about five friends, close friends for years, 4 men, one woman. when Jude's husband dies after battling his disease, the posse comes together and admit they are afraid that Jude might leave town, but they want her to stay. Soon the men agree that the posse needs to try to keep the posse together. Question is is Jude ready after her husbands passing for a new relationship. Who of the three will get her?? Very good book and so romantic! Wonderful read that I so recommend to every one! I received a free copy for a honest review

This is everything you want in as contemporary romance and more. I loved this story, it has so much heart to it. I have to say a few tears were shed while reading. The main character was great and I loved the idea of a group guy of friends trying to take care of their own. Its funny sometimes how much fate and second chances can play into peoples lives and what people will do for love. Setting aside the feelings you have for the person you love for 30 plus years and still being a tight nit "family". I can't wait to see what the author will write next.

She may be Older, but she's definitely NOT too OLD to fall in LOVE Again... When's the RIGHT Time to Start Again... When's DO you know you're Ready to Move ON... Who's Gonna be the ONE to Shake away HER Grief... Three Men she's known for Years... Each will offer something Unique... Will she find Anything more than friendship, solace, or camaraderie... Or, is ONE the Match to a Secret Desire she didn't know she's Harboring... If she accepts his advance, what's the chance of the family, the Posse, & her friends welcoming their Romance?! I was granted an ARC of Tawdra Kandle's "The Posse: A Crystal Cove Book" via Booksprout; I recommend this book to others based upon its own merits. All opinions expressed within this review are uniquely my own & freely given! Until next time... Happy Reading!

Loved it! They're in their mid-40s. The closest friend in her husband's posse has always loved her, but stepped aside when it was obvious the buddy had won her heart. Now he gets a second chance.

Interesting (but not fully fleshed out) main characters & nice location - but the plot was totally predictable, the writing verged on insipid here and there, and (worst of all because there is NO excuse for it), the editing was incredibly sloppy (or maybe even non-existant?). Skipped and/or misspelled words on almost every other page did NOT make for a smooth or pleasurable reading experience. For me this book was eminently forgettable.

Short but sweet love story. Liked it, but didnt love it. Liked all the characters and the story itself, but it was lacking something in my opinion. I probably wont be reading the rest of the books in this series.
