Wind Chime Cafe (LG-2500 x 1563)

When single mother Annie Malone purchases a quirky Main Street café on Heron Island, she thinks she’s finally turned her dream of opening her own restaurant into a reality. Hearing rumors that a developer is about to build a five-star resort on the sleepy Chesapeake Bay island, she plans to transform the café into a premier upscale bistro. But Navy SEAL, Will Dozier, has no intention of selling his grandparents’ property to a developer. Back on Heron Island for the first time in ten years and secretly struggling with PTSD, Will decides that a fling with the new girl is the perfect way to help him “get his head straight.” The last thing Will expects is to fall in love…with his hometown and with Annie. But Will’s life and career are in San Diego with the SEALs. Can Annie’s love and the healing magic of the island be enough to convince him to stay?

Review by Guest Blogger Angela:
I was given Wind Chime Cafe to read and I am so glad that I read it.  Sophie Moss has written a wonderfully sweet book that takes serious issues and addresses them appropriately in a great book.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, as well as other books that Moss has written.

Annie and her daughter, Taylor, move to Heron Island in order to make a fresh start and make Annie's dream of opening a French bistro come true.  Annie purchases the restaurant in hopes the resort her realtor talked about opening would bring plenty of business to repay the loan she has acquired for the renovations of the cafe.  

Annie and Taylor find Heron Island to be a quiet place to start over and deal with the trauma that Taylor has endured.  They start meeting people and feel they are making a great start for their new future.  Enter Will Dozier.

Will Dozier, a Navy SEAL and native resident of Heron Island, is returning to the island in order to sell his grandparents' inn to a buyer.  He comes back to town late one night and the only place open - well the light is on- is Annie's cafe.  He stops in with the hopes of grabbing dinner before going to his grandparents' inn for the night.  Both are surprised when Will comes to the cafe. Will is taken with how beautiful he thinks Annie is. Annie, being in a new town, is uneasy with Will's presence in the cafe so late and worries Taylor's safety. However, she is drawn to Will and is not comfortable with the feelings his presence evokes in her.  Will tries to tell himself that "getting laid" will help keep away the dreams of his last mission at bay, and asks Annie out for a date. Focusing on her daughter's well-being, she refuses to go out with him.  Annie gives him some frozen fish sticks and a can of soup and makes him leave the cafe.

What can I say? Will is determined to get to know her, and Annie is determined to stay away from relationships until Taylor's trauma is under control. He wants her more than he has anyone since high school, and Annie is afraid to let someone into her and Taylor's lives who isn't going to stay. Will's only there to sell the inn and will then return to San Diego and resume his SEAL career. 

Circumstances bring the two together and they finally admit their attraction to one another.  And then secrets are exposed that threaten everything they've ever wanted.  Saying anything more will only ruin a completely amazing story for you. Moss write a beautiful story that I am glad I have read.  It made me laugh. It made my heart go "awwwe". And it made me smile.  Will is a sweet, kind man who has suffered tragedy and hides himself from everyone. He's that big teddy bear that you can't want to hug.... and make it all better. ;)  I mean, come on. He's a SEAL for crying out loud. That alone gives him major hot points.  More for being good with kids.  And some for being sentimental.  A little for ....... skills. TOTAL HOTTIE!

I loved Will's story and how he and Annie found their way home with each other. And Taylor.  She's so sweet and vulnerable that you can't help but want to take her as your own.  I completely recommend this book for everyone. If you want a really good read, complete story, and a book that makes you smile, Wind Chime Cafe by Sophie moss is the book for you!  i can not wait to read the next book in this series which involves Will's best friend, Colin, and a high school friend, Becca. And from what was hinted around in this book about them.... It's going to be good!

And as for what kind of secrets could Annie possibly have that could hurt Will?  Go one-click now, because you know I'll never tell! ~A
