Series: The Off Season #6
Author: Lee Tobin McClain
Publisher: HQN
Release Date: April 26, 2022
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Clean & Wholesome

Safe harbor and new beginnings await on the Chesapeake Bay… 

Pleasant Shores cop Evan Stone has worked hard to become a man of his word, overcoming the alcoholism that sent him down the wrong path in his youth. So when his late best friend’s sister asks for his help, he doesn’t hesitate. He promised he’d watch out for Cassie, and the cottage next to his will be a perfect short-term refuge for her and her dog. The other half of that promise—to stay away from Cassie romantically—is harder to keep. 

Sheltered for years because of a childhood illness, Cassie is ready to reach for what she wants. And despite her family’s warnings and her own fears, Cassie’s heart wants Evan. As the return of his estranged son puts his sobriety to the test, Cassie and Evan are drawn together, finding strength through what they’ve each weathered. She knows Evan would risk anything to protect her, but are they willing to risk the price of loving, now and forever?

I always enjoy a Good Christian Romance. Forever on the Bay by Lee Tobin McClain is Book 6 in The Off Season series. I have only read one of the other books in this series, although after reading this book I want to go back and read the series from beginning to end! 

The story takes place in Pleasant Shores, the same town as the Book 5. The main characters in this book are Evan Stone and Cassie Thomas. Evan is a Cop in Pleasant Shores and is a former Alcoholic. He has been sober for many years due to his determination. Cassie Thomas is the sister of Evan's late best friend. He promised he would keep an eye on her, so when Cassie asks Evan for help, he immediately says YES. Cassie was sheltered for many years due to a Childhood Illness, but Cassie is now ready to branch out on her own with her Dog. Evan agrees to let them stay in the Cottage right next door to him, known as Victory Cottage. Cassie finds herself falling in love with Evan, even though her family has warned that he might not be the one for her. Evan's Collage Age son, who he hadn't seen in many, comes to visit. He sees that he might be drifting back to his Alcoholic ways with his son there. Will Evan be able to stay sober and be strong? Will Evan and Cassie find themselves in a Romantic Relationship? 

WOW, what a wonderful and heartwarming  Romance! The reader is drawn into the story from the very first chapter. I really like the idea behind Victory Cottage. Victory Cottage is a place where one can stay for a time to get some help and a break from the things that are troubling them. The main characters, Evan and Cassie, have known each other since Childhood. They both have some hard things happen in the past, but those hardships made them stronger people today. I really see that in this book when Evan's son comes home and Evan is on the brink of losing his soberity. Cassie and Evan end up helping each other through many avenues. The book is set in Pleasant Shores, which is a small town. I really felt the Small Town warmth and community throughout the book.  I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a Sweet Chrisitan Romance novel GREAT BOOK!

I am interested in how the presence of Evan's college-aged son threatens his sobriety and how Cassie helps him with that dilemma.
