About this ebook


Welcome to Hathaway House. Rehab Center. Safe Haven. Second chance at life and love.

Lance Mayfair sought out Hathaway House at the recommendation of a friend, who told him it was an answer to his prayer. Lance knows more about prayers than answers, but, if he can see progress in one particular area of his life and health, it will be worth the effort and the pain. He’ll do anything he can to play music again. It’s all he has left now that his days as a Navy SEAL are over and, with them, any chance of a happy, productive life.

However, the shoulder injury that ended his career pretty much guarantees he’ll never play his beloved instruments ever again.

Unless Hathaway House and Jessica can work a miracle.

Jessica has worked with many patients at Hathaway House, but she connects with Lance in a way she didn’t with any of the others. She can see the need inside him—his desire to create again, to heal through music. And his goal becomes her goal: to see him play music in his soul again.

Only his music isn’t all he wants or needs, and making him happy goes a long way to making her happy, but it’s not enough. Both want and need so much more.

This is the twelfth book in the amazing Hathaway House series and instead of running out of steam they just get better, this is such a beautiful story that by the end I was an emotional wreck. "Get here, it will make all the difference" was the message from his friend and ex Seal colleague Iain. Lance Mayfair had sustained life altering injuries on a mission whilst serving as a US Navy SEAL, he had almost accepted his lot as wheelchair bound when he got the message from Iain, Iain was recovering in Hathaway House, a rehabilitation centre for seriously injured military personnel, it had fantastic reviews for treating patients holistically but would it work for Lance? Jessica Marlow was to be Lance's nurse, finding out about Lance's love of music Jessica was determined to help him attain his dream, going out of her way to provide opportunities. A gentle romance blossomed between Jessica and Lance as he fights his way back to regain his life. I love the characters that run through this series of books like old friends, I love the individual, holistic way that all the patients are treated, I love the fact that Dale Mayer has obviously researched the psychological as well as the physical aspects of seriously injured military personnel and I loved the fact that I could almost hear Lances music whilst reading his story, I cant wait for the next one, A well deserved five stars I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The author described this book as a "Heartwarming Romance" and I could not think of better words to use. Lance has arrived at Hathaway House to further his rehab after hearing so many good things from his buddies. He was injured as a Navy Seal and now has to reset his goals and heal further to reach them. With his injuries, following his other dream has been jeopardized but music comes so naturally to him that he is really set on making this dream come true. His next dream comes naturally too but you have to read the book to hear about that. Reading this series resets my brain in a good way even though they tug at my heart. I really enjoyed Lance and Jessica's story. Another great "Heartwarming Romance" in a equally great series. The epilogue talks about Dani's friend Melissa who has also been injured in the military. I'm anxious to read this as well!
