ARC received from S&S Australia for an honest review

I love Abbi Glines and the Rosemary Beach series, but I have to admit, I have found the last few books a bit wishy-washy.

But this is Captain's story, and it is one I have been waiting to come along for a while now. 

And to me it is back to Rosemary Beach's best.

There has always been that air of mystery around Captain- who is he, what is it that he does.  And now we find it all out.

There is something about the waitress Rose that intrigues him, beguiles him, scares him.  And he is not sure what it is about her but he can't keep away from her.

And when we fid out what the deal is - BAM!  Wowsers!!  Was not expecting that for him!

I love the interaction between Rose/Cap.  Told in both past and present tense, we got to learn a lot more about Cap than the gun for hire guy we have previously met. And I loved every second of it.

The Best Goodbye is a beautiful, tender, engaging second chance romance, and I felt this took the series back to the Rush and Woods era that I loved the most.

Now bring on Nan's story.  Let's see if Ms Glines can change me from a #NanHaterForLife!
