Review: Low Country Hero by Lee Tobin McClain


Sunny, carefree days splashing in the ocean--it's the life Anna George has always wanted for her five-year-old twins. And now that they've made it to Safe Haven, South Carolina, she won't let anyone stand in her way. Not the abusive ex she's just escaped and not the rugged contractor who caught her setting up house in the shuttered beachfront cabins he's refurbishing. When he offers Anna and her daughters a place to stay in exchange for her help with renovations, she's tempted. His gentle way with her girls makes her want to trust him, but she's been wrong before...

A family is the last thing contractor and former military man Sean O'Dwyer wants right now. But when he discovers Anna and her girls, he recognizes kindred spirits. They're survivors who've seen the worst of people, just like he has, and he'll do anything he can to help them. As he and Anna spend their days bringing the cottages back to life and their nights sharing kisses in the warm bayou breezes, Sean must choose between the life he always wanted and the family he can't live without.  
This was my first time reading Lee Tobin McClain. I saw this book and thought about getting it then when it came up on sale I jumped at it. I still didn't read it right away but I finally did. 

This one starts off with heartbreak. I don't want to ruin too much yet for you so that's all I can tell you. You'll have to read it to understand what I'm talking about. I will tell you that the beginning of this book drew me in so much that I couldn't wait to keep reading it. 

This whole series is about women being abused and those that help them. We start off with Sean who's back home and going to be fixing up a bunch of summer cabins. He's not a happy person right now. Much has happened in his past and he's home to heal his mind and heart. Part of that healing isn't in taking care of a woman and her two girls. 

He really should have known he'd be lost the second he allowed them to stay in one of the cabins. Plus pretty quickly he realizes that Anna and her girls are in trouble. Since Sean knows trouble, he can't help himself, he needed to help her. 

Poor Anna, she's running for her life and her daughters. What she doesn't need right now is someone in her business. She can't trust anyone. 

So when she allows Sean in hers and her daughter's life she's not sure if it's a good idea. I like how much she struggled with the thought of bringing a new man into their lives after what they went through with their father. 

But they all work well together and after a while, Sean finds that he likes spending time with Anna and her daughters and that they make him want to live, not just be. Anna also learns through Sean and his family about trust and that sometimes you have to trust people. 

This was a wonderful story that I was so happy that I read. I liked Sean and his family and wanted to know more about them. I loved how he and his brothers held together even though they could have pulled about. If you are looking for an emotionally driven series for the summer you must get this series. 

Any of you read her?
