Thank you so much to Montlake and Netgalley for letting me read a copy of Maybe We Will by Melissa Foster! I didn’t realize it when I grabbed it on Netgalley, but this is a spinoff series from two of my favorite Melissa Foster series, Sugar Lake and Harmony Point (which in themselves are spinoff series of each other), so that was amazing! It also has characters from some of her other series which I haven’t read, so if you’re a Melissa Foster fan, you’re definitely in for a treat with Maybe We Will!
Maybe We Will 4/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads:
From Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of She Loves Me, comes a sexy and heart-warming novel about finding love—and family—where you least expect it.
When chef Abby de Messiéres returns to Silver Island with her sister to get their late mother’s affairs in order, she expected to inherit her mother’s bistro along with their childhood home, not to discover a half sister they never knew existed, and a handsome vacationer camped out on her mother’s patio.
Workaholic Aiden Aldridge has been sent to Silver Island on a work-free vacation, armed with a “Let Loose List,” and ordered to get a life by the much-younger sister he raised after the death of their parents. After years of focusing on his sister’s well-being, he’s blindsided by his intense attraction to the gorgeous, free-spirited Abby.
Aiden might not know much about chilling out, but he’s excellent at striking deals. He helps Abby with the restaurant in exchange for her help in tackling the items on his list. Sparks fly as Aiden and Abby work, and play, side by side. Intimate conversations lead to steamy kisses and undeniable passion. But there’s more to Aiden then Abby knows, and when the truth comes out, their new romance is put to the test, as the two find out if true love really can conquer all.
This book was so incredibly cute. I already loved Aiden because of his sister Remi’s book in the Harmony Point series, so being able to see him get his own happily ever after was very cute. I also really liked Abby- she’s such a happy person who never lets anything get her down and she’s definitely the glue that holds her and her sisters together. I really liked the island of Silver Harbor and how tight knit the community there was and I cannot wait to read more about these characters and more things set in this world. This book felt like being back with friends I hadn’t seen in a while, even though the only character I had actually known beforehand was Aiden (and Remi and Mason when they made cameos). Now I’m even more excited about reading all of Melissa Foster’s other books whenever I have a chance to! Plot wise, I really liked the idea of Abby coming in and taking of the restaurant to try and bring the magic back into it after her mother’s death. I think the information that Aiden kept from her at the beginning was crucial and having that come back and bite him in the ass was a perfect way to create tension and show this as a real, adult relationship. Overall, there was so much good in this book and I cannot wait to see more from Melissa Foster!
