Sanctuary Cove by Kate James + Giveaway!

Sanctuary Cove
by Kate James
Adult Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 384 pages
March 1st 2017 by Harlequin Heartwarming

Can his safe haven be enough for her?

Emma Meadows never imagined that sticking to her principles against an act of corruption by a New York senator would cost her her job as VP of communications. Heartbroken, she retreats to her cottage in the Adirondacks to lick her wounds and, in the process, rescues an injured dog that only Josh Whitmore can save.

The veterinarian works diligently to bring dog and woman back to full fighting form, until allegations against the senator become more serious. Seeing Emma's reaction to the increasing pressure, Josh realizes that inevitably she'll find a way back to the top…and he'll likely lose her for good.

I always look forward to books by Kate James.  Her K-9 Trilogy was one of my favorites.  And there is no denying that I love books in the Harlequin Heartwarming Line.  These two are a perfect combination.

Emma is a kind hearted character.  Her love for animals is endearing and ultimately what draws Josh to her.  Emma and Josh are so good together.  I loved the moments when they were close and helping each other.  Josh is an excellent supporter of Emma- strong and capable.  I just really liked them both.  I'm also coming to realize that with Kate James, there is probably going to be a dog or two involved in the story as well!

It's always fun to have a bit of light suspense thrown in a romance.  In this case, it helped things move along more quickly.  I wasn't a fan of how the information regarding the conflict came about- a couple times I felt like I was in the middle of an information dump.  I will admit to skimming through some of that.  I wish it would have been woven into the story in a less dumpy way.  Other than that, I really enjoyed this book just as I suspected I would.

Content:  mild swearing, profanity (using God, Lord as exclamations)

- I received a copy of this book through Prism Book Tours for review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
