Second-grade teacher, Becca Haddaway, is weeks away from walking down the aisle when she learns that the Heron Island Elementary School is about to be shut down. In the midst of a whirlwind of wedding planning, she launches into a last-ditch effort to save it. But the one man who can help her is determined to make her question every decision she has ever made—including the man she’s about to marry.
Former Navy SEAL and son of the current Maryland governor, Colin Foley, is finally starting to feel whole again after losing his leg on a career-ending deployment in Afghanistan. After struggling for months to figure out what to do with his post-military life, he’s found a new mission—opening a rehab center for wounded veterans on the peaceful Chesapeake Bay island. All he needs now is a woman to share his new life with…and he knows exactly who he wants.
With a little help from the island’s magical wind chimes, can Colin convince Becca to change her mind before it’s too late?

Becca Haddaway is finally going to get married to the man of her dreams and start a new life outside of that quaint Chesapeake Bay Island where she has grown up. Her fiancé is working hard to make a name for his self, leaving Becca to start saying her goodbyes alone. When Becca officially hands over her letter resignation, she had no idea that it may be goodbye for good to Heron Island Elementary School. Budget cuts among other things are about to shut it down. Concentrating on her upcoming wedding has become next to impossible while she tries to make a last effort to save the school, especially after asking Colin Foley for a little help. After finding some peace and purpose on the island, he finds that last piece of the puzzle that he’s been missing. Except, that piece is engaged.
The story was just as amazing and heartfelt as Wind Chime Café-Book 1. The author has a way of making the characters believable with the way her stories are written. I enjoy the way the characters are brought together and slowly find a way to heal and work through their emotional walls. Ah, and you mustn’t forget the yummy recipe included in the back of the book.
This is a sweet romantic read that will keep your attention. I’ll be waiting for the next in the series, just like after reading the first book. Get ready to take a journey of healing, determination, and love.
