Rekindled romance?

The problem, for me with books about people rediscovering their love is that they lost it in the first place. I find it hard to believe fully in a “happy ever after” ending when hero and heroine have already divorced once. That’s the case in this book: Jack Davenport, who works for the government in covert operations, and reporter Catherine Blackburn divorced several years ago, after the death of their child.

When it looks as though Catherine’s life is threatened by her mother, Jack’s boss persuades him to kidnap Cat until they can be sure she is safe. Of course, Cat’s not keen on the plan, but once at Eternity Springs, the small town where Jack has a house, she begins to feel at home and to heal her relationship with Jack.

Nightingale Way is the first I've read in the series of books the Eternity Springs community. There was a rather large cast of characters in the book, and I couldn’t always keep track. I also found myself not entirely in sympathy with either Jack or Cat; Cat especially felt cold and distant to me. The author also seems rather too pleased with the amount of money that Jack has. It feels a bit awkward when we keep reading about it, although this may be my British sensibilities coming into play.

I found Nightingale Way easy to read, but there isn’t anything special in it--and I can’t feel entirely sure about Jack and Cat’s future together.
