Then Came You (Compass Cove, #1)

Then Came You (Compass Cove #1)

byJeannie Moon(Goodreads Author)

Mia DeAngelis knew it was time to make a change. Wanting to provide a better life for herself and her ten-year-old nephew, Ben, she took a chance and moved to the small town of Compass Cove, New York, on Long Island’s north shore. Now, the college librarian is adapting to a new job, a new town, and living with her feisty seventy-eight-year-old grandmother. Mia is determined to make it all work, hoping the coastal hamlet gives both her and Ben the sense of community, family and belonging they both want so much.

Adam Miller, a retired NFL quarterback, has come back to Compass Cove to start over after an injury puts an end to his high-octane life. Home never figured into his plans, but when the spectacular crash to earth forces the former superstar to return to his family, Adam must build a new life from the ashes of his old one. Settling into the small town routine proves to be a challenge, but his job coaching at Jennings College gives him a sense of purpose while keeping him connected to the game he loves.

It won’t be easy, but with the help of a few meddling family members, and a little bit of small town magic, these two lost hearts might find the love they so desperately crave.(less)

 I enjoyed “Then Came You” by Jeannie Moon, and found it very entertaining. The Genres for this book are Fiction, Women’s Fiction and Contemporary Romance.
I appreciate that Jeannie Moon discusses important subjects such as suicide,  bullying, emotional abuse, dysfunctional family dynamics, and adoption. Jeannie Moon also discusses the importance of family, friends, love, support, acceptance, and self-acceptance, self-worth and hope.
The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. Some of the characters have been brought up in dysfunctional households, and suffer the consequences. Some of the characters show growth and responsibility. Mia DeAngelis moves to Long Island to give her ten-year old nephew Ben, a better life. Mia is works as a college librarian, and also is Ben’s guardian, and hopes to adopt him.  Mia has had no time for romance, but longs for it. Ben has tremendous energy, and needs an outlet. Mia’s mother(Ben’s  grandmother) doesn’t want him to participate in any sports where Ben can be hurt. Ben meets Coach Adam Miller, on the college campus where Mia works. The Coach offers to let Ben be a “helper” around his team.
I really like Ben, who goes with the flow, and the challenges that arise.  There are also some characters that made me feel very angry. I would recommend this novel as a delightful, thought-provoking, easy ready for those readers that appreciate Contemporary Romance, and Women’s Fiction. I would like to thank Tule Publishing,  NetGalley and Jeannie Moon for an Advanced Reading Copy for my honest review.
