When Emmy’s fiancé, Ethan, is killed by a speeding driver on the way to their wedding, she is devastated beyond words. Numb and confused, she withdraws from the world.
Eighteen months later, Emmy has settled herself into the coastal town of Cobbler’s Cove. With satisfying work in a new restaurant, a quiet home by the sea, and friends who pick her up when grief comes back to haunt her, she’s finally daring to dream of a bright future.
That is, until she meets Jack Archera worldly chef who draws people to the restaurant. Emmy and Jack have mutual friends and a common goal, but their history could tear them both apart.
When Emmy finds herself falling for Jack, she begins to question her love for Ethan. She’s tortured by the past and scared of the future. Does she have the strength to forgive and move on?
Praise for THIS LOVE
This Love is so much more than a love story- it is a real primer on forgiveness and finding joy again after catastrophe. The depictions of the characters' feelings is so raw and so well-written. What emerges is one of the most heroic and mature female characters. This is a compelling and well-written love story that entails more than just romantic love. I am confident that you could read This Love again and again and glean something wonderful at each reading!' — Katie Chapman, Netgalley
I have never read anything by Lea Darragh before, however, I assure you that this is just the beginning of my reading her novels. This was such an incredible novel that I can’t say enough about it. Darragh’s writing style flows well and immediately draws you into this story. Her descriptions of the pain each of them feel, their moments together, and of their ocean backdrop will blow you away making you feel as if you’re watching a movie rather than reading. The unique storyline and amazing characters made this a great romance novel! ' — Jennifer Thomason, Netgalley
This Love is heartbreaking, angsty, and intensely hot. It is a story about forgiving and being forgiven to fully fall in love.' — Abby Raz, Netgalley
If you enjoy reading Nicholas Sparks novels then you’ll love this. It’s a true love story with an honesty about it that’ll bring you to your knees.' — Sophie Bailey, Netgalley
I LOVED this book. It opens up with Emmy in the hospital in her wedding gown, finding out her fiancé died in surgery following a car wreck. It quickly flashes to 18 months later and Emmy trying to move on with her life, but stuck in her grief. In the first 1/3 of the book, Emmy's despair is palpable. As she confronts Jack(the man who ran the red light and killed her fiancé), she slowly begins to heal. As the story progresses, both Emmy and Jack show tremendous character growth and began to fall for one another. The mood of the story quickly transforms to one of hope, and eventually healing. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone wanting to read a book about two souls finding their path together and restoring one another. The scenic descriptions really pulled me in and I fell in love with their small beach town.' — Sarah Manley, Netgalley
An emotional read that pulls at your heart and doesn’t let go. It is about love and loss. Forgiveness and acceptance. Understanding and compassion. Putting your life together when it seems as if there is no chance of normal. This is a well written book full of great characters and chemistry. My first read from this author but definitely not my last. Pick up this amazing book, you won’t be sorry! It is a truly wonderful read.' — Lisa Ossman, Netgalley
This is quite an emotional read.
It’s sometimes a rocky road to recovery following a tragedy & others may not deal with the events as you would. This book made me question myself about ‘what if it was me?’ Towards the end it had me ‘hopping’ whether it would or it wouldn’t work out. To me this was a lovely book & I will be looking for more by this author.
