The Way You Look Tonight is a hot contemporary romance and book #2 of the Seattle Sullivans. Easily a stand alone book.
Rafe Sullivan is a PI. The big dollar cases are all marriage related, but the emotional strain of finding so many marriages that fail makes Rafe skeptical of trusting that true love is real. When his real estate sister produces details of the lake house that their family once owned and spent many happy summers at, Rafe is cornered by Mia. She already has plans for their old family home and just needs his signature.
Mia sends Rafe out to his new house and away from the stress of his work and a past experience with an angry husband of one of his clients. When he arrives he finds the place trashed and uninhabitable.
Brooke Jansen spent her childhood summers at her grandparents Washington state lake house and spent many hours with the Sullivans who lived next door. When her Grandparents died they left her the lake house and now Brooke uses it as a base for her chocolate business.
She can’t believe that the new owner of the house next door is her childhood crush, Rafe. She’d heard the Sullivans had sold up years ago. Brooke offers Rafe a place to crash while he does his lake house up, but it soon becomes apparent that Brooke’s crush isn’t over and Rafe certainly likes the women Brooke has grown up to be. Can Rafe let down his guard enough to let Brooke in? Or will be chase her away with his controlling urges?
Good feel-good reading.
