USA Today bestselling author Kimberly Lang offers up the second book in her Magnolia Beach series with Everything At Last. Molly Richards has built a new life for herself in the charming coastal Alabama town of Magnolia Beach. Her coffee shop, Latte Dah, is a success, and little by little, she’s widening her group of acquaintances. Life is good.
But then her new friend Helena begins trying to set Molly up with Helena’s best friend, town veterinarian Tate Harris. Molly, however, has become adept at sidestepping Helena’s matchmaking efforts. Not that she wouldn’t like to have sex again sometime in this decade, but a downside to small-town living is that everyone knows everyone else’s business. Well, that and the fact that although she would welcome the chance to blow off some pent-up steam, she’s definitely not looking for love.
Tate has burned some bridges, dating-wise, in Magnolia Beach. It’s difficult for Tate not to when the dating pool is filled with women he has known since birth. So on general principal alone, he wants nothing to do with Helena’s new friend. Still, he has to admit that Molly is funny. And sweet. And hot. But when he makes a move on her, she shuts him down and makes it clear that while she would like to have him as a friend, she’s not looking for romance.
Molly feels that she can’t afford to fall for Tate. Her track record with men is less than stellar, and she has secrets—secrets she has no desire to share. But after a sudden, middle-of-the-night emergency with her cat, the tension between Molly and Tate explodes. But just as their relationship takes off, Molly’s past comes calling.
Filled with relatable, sympathetic characters, Everything at Last is a delightful peek into small-town life. This sexy, heartwarming read will lift your spirits as the novel races toward its supremely satisfying conclusion.
