THE BEST GOODBYE
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.
“The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was . . . “
After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.
Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh…something strange about the way she looks at Captain…
The Best Goodbye – Abbi Glines
River Kipling is a tough around the edges and hard to deal with SOB. We’ve met him in books previously and he wasn’t very charismatic to say the least but we all knew he was a sexy, secretive, and all alpha guy. With him being Blaire’s brother, we all wanted to give him a chance but he made it just too damn hard to like. We learn in The Best Goodbye that Captain suffered a major loss ten years ago and that changed him and his total outlook on life. He’s taken on a new job to head up a restaurant in Rosemary Beach where Blaire is living with her family. He’s already made plans that as soon as this job is over he’s headed to the water and fishing; where he’s the happiest.
Rose Henderson is one of his new employees at the restaurant and she has a secret. A ten year old secret that’s full of life, happiness, and is what keeps Rose going. River finds himself attracted to Rose and tries to keep that attraction at bay, unaware that he and Rose have a connection from the past that will shake his whole foundation.
We follow their story in the present and with flashbacks. We watch their history unfold and learn what kind of heartbreak and turmoil they both suffered at the hands of a woman who was suppose to love them both. We the watch their present take on different meanings for both of them.
This book takes us back to the first of the series with Abbi’s writing, the angst, the love, and the heartache. We are able to catch up with some of the original characters like Rush and Blaire which what I love most about Abbi’s books, they always incorporate other characters that made us fall in love with her books.
