Delightful page turner about Alex Moorehouse, famed captain of racing sailboats, finally getting a chance with Cassandra, the woman of his dreams who he rarely even spoke to because she was the wife of his partner and therefore off limits. After the partner's death, Alex works through his guilt and rehabs from injuries. Cass is restoring the family B & B and falling in love with Alex. He often confuses her and breaks her heart, but the misunderstandings are finally cleared up and the happily ever after can take place. This is the third book in a great series.
Cassandra. The forbidden woman Alex had yearned for from the first moment he'd laid eyes on her six years ago. The woman who'd been married to his best friend--the friend he'd lost to the sea. The woman who was rebuilding his family's bed-and-breakfast....and who just might, in the process, be rebuilding his anguished heart.
of the 4 books out in the "Moorehouse Legacy" series so far, this is definitely the best. Lots of emotion, likeable characters, and believeable plot. Bird (AKA JR Ward) has a distinct style. Loved it!
Book 3 of the Moorrehouse Legacy. (Book 1 is Beauty and the Black Sheep and Book 2 is His Comfort and Joy.) This mini series is based on 3 siblings who own an inn in need of repair in Upstate New York. In this book, brother Alex Moore find out he might finally get the women he has always wanted. The problem is she is the widow of his best friend and Alex feels responsible for his friends death.
Alex Moorehouse fell in love with Cassandra Cutler the first time he met her. But, since she was married to his best friend, he kept his distance from her. Now Reece Cutler is dead, lost at sea in a boating accident. The accident also left Alex injured; staying on his family's property while in the Adirondacks while the family's bed and breakfast is being renovated. Now he finds it hard to avoid Cassandra since she is the person doing the renovating. But Alex knows he must stay away from her because he is to blame for her husband's death.
Alex is a tortured soul, believing himself responsible for his partner's death. Cassandra can't understand why Alex has always been so cold with her. I love their stilted conversations when neither of them can think of anything to say to the other. This is the third book in the Moorehouse Legacy series. As I read the books in this series, I see the author's style evolving. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
Last of a series. Well written, fast paced and interesting.
great author, as good as her other books
The third book in the Moorehouse's Legacy trilogy. This is Alex and Cassandra's story. Great read.
