Veterinarian Tessa Callaghan is on a mission to save her home town. The bay has just been voted one of the dullest small towns in the country and she’s determined to do her bit to make it great again. She just hasn’t counted on brother-in-law Gabe McLeod coming back on to the scene – nor her growing feelings for the man who abandoned her when she needed him most.
SOS call from the small town's mayor has brought Gabe back home for the
shortest time possible but it also brings him face-to-face with the
secret he’s kept all these years. That he is in love with Tessa - and
that she is the one woman he can never have. But when life in the Bay
takes some unexpected turns, it becomes clear that he’s not going
anywhere… and neither are his feelings for Tessa.
Set in a small New Zealand town, The Return of Gabe McLeod is a cosy romance that will make you laugh - and warm your heart. From Goodreads.
I enjoyed this one. A nice romance of second chances. I also liked the serious story about Gabe's father and (step)mother and what sorrow can do to a person. It is of course all settled in the end.
