Book Review: The Veranda by Rosalind Abel

The Veranda 
by Rosalind Abel

Donovan Carlisle helps countless people in Lavender Shores with his skills as a therapist. It seems, however, that his ability to enable others to live their happiest life only works outside of himself. Donovan truly loves his life, but isn’t able to find a relationship that satisfies his heart’s craving. Maybe the problem is that the only man he wants is off-limits. 

Spencer Epstein came to Lavender Shores to find himself. Instead, he married one of the local town beauties. He’d thought his prayers had finally been answered. Then, he met his pregnant fiancée’s brother. It turned out those answered prayers were just cruel twists of fate. 

A decade later, after a divorce and the crumbling of all Spencer thought was set in stone, he sees his brother-in-law at a masquerade sex party. He takes full advantage of the anonymity and acts on the desires he’s held at bay all those years. The problem is, those silent and frenzied moments didn’t satiate anything. The fire and heat between the two men only grows as secrets are uncovered and they must determine if the cost of their passion is too high...

5 Stars

This is book 3 in the Lavender Shores series by Rosalind Abel and it starts off with a BANG! Donovan and Spencer have secretly had feelings for each other for years, but Spencer was married to Donovan's sister. With his marriage over, Spencer is ready to live his truth. 

I loved how Spencer put himself out there and showed Donovan how much he means to him. Donovan has loved Spencer for years, he has to figure out if he can overcome his family issues and love Spencer openly. 

We get a glimpse of all our favorite Lavender Shores characters and a few we don't like *cough* (Erica) *cough*. Robert and his antics never fail to make me laugh!! I love this series so much and can not wait for Lamont to find his love.
