Review: Maybe We Should by Melissa Foster (Silver Harbor #2)
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
Cait looked at Brant incredulously. "I found him."
"And I rescued you both," Brandt reminded her. "Since you won't come home with me, it's only fair that we share custody of the dog."
After reading Maybe We Will a few months ago, the next two books immediately went on my to-be-read list. Melissa Foster not only gave readers a wonderful romance with that first novel, but she had many of us eager to see the two other sisters find their own happily-ever-after. In short, what we got was a fantastic series starter that ticked off all the boxes. And now, Maybe We Should is out in the proverbial wild, and I'm not going to suggest that maybe you should read this new romance; I'm telling you that you most definitely should read this as soon as humanly possible. Heck, read both books. Like now.
After Abby de Messiéres found love with Aiden Aldridge in Maybe We Will, it's now time for the eldest of Ava de Messiéres's daughters to find her way towards her happy ending. Maybe We Should is thirty-two-year-old Cait Weatherby's story, one she shares with thirty-three-year-old shipbuilder Brant Remington. Cait found family in the form of her two half-sisters, Deirdra and Abby de Messiéres, after their mother passed away. She's unsure if she's found home on Silver Island, with her chosen family and her work as a tattoo artist seeing her returning to Cape Cod regularly. With Brant she may have found love, but her past casts a dark shadow that could lead to her losing everything she's just found.
The books in this series should come with a warning: Possibility of book hangover highly likely! Cait mentions often that she felt butterflies in her tummy whenever Brant did or said something to and for her. Like those proverbial butterflies, Cait's journey had her hovering below the surface, not seeking attention. Then over time, she realized what Brant, her sisters, and her chosen family knew all along--that she was someone deserving of love and all of life's goodness. Seeing her take flight to embrace it all was quite joyous.
Cait and Brant's story certainly had the romance, but it was also a tale of family and home, all of which are constants in Melissa Foster's brand of writing. As prolific as an author as Foster is, I continue to marvel over the fact that each book of hers that I've read so far--and I doubt that I've even gone through a third of her published work--offers up a different story. Dare I say that Maybe We Should is one of her best to date. Five-plus stars.
