One long, hot summer would never be enough…

Attorney Hannah Sterling lives a life she's worked hard for. So when she unexpectedly inherits an inn, Hannah decides to take that long overdue holiday and settle her eccentric grandmother's estate. She knew there would be challenges, but what's hardest about returning to Mirabelle, Florida, is facing the man who gave her the most passionate summer of her life-and then broke her heart.

Nathanial Shepherd never forgot the redheaded goddess who lit up his world and got away. Now that she's home, Shep vows to make up for their years apart-and if the fire in her kiss is any indication, they're well on their way. But when a devastating secret from their past threatens their future, Shep must fight to heal Hannah's heart. Because this time, their love will truly be unforgettable…

I love a good reunion romance and Unforgettable is a wonderful one. Shannon Richard’s fourth Country Roads novel will make you smile one moment and break your heart the next. It’s an engrossing romance thanks to its interesting leads and their fantastic chemistry.

Hannah and Shep first fell in love as teenagers, but when they chose to end their summer romance and follow their planned life paths, their lives changed irrevocably. It’s been thirteen years, but neither Hannah nor Shep have forgotten each other or the heartbreak their separation caused. Now that Hannah is back in Mirabelle, Shep can’t bear to lose her again. But things aren’t exactly easy. It takes patience and trust on Shep’s part and a willingness to risk her heart once again on Hannah’s for these two to get together. And when they do…watch out because Unforgettable heats up fast. Shep and Hannah are truly made for each other in every way and their every encounter crackles with energy. The obstacles in their romance are mostly due to a lack of communication and the occasional misunderstanding. Though I wanted to shake them and tell them to just open up to one another a couple of times over the course of the story, Ms. Richard did make me understand where both Shep and Hannah were coming from. Hannah in particular had to deal with a powerful loss; she bears an emotional scar that will never truly heal and it affects her present-day relationship with Shep. There’s a wealth of emotion in Unforgettable that keeps you invested in the story. I hated having to put the book down and I was rooting for Hannah and Shep every step of the way.

Unforgettable is the fourth book in Ms. Richard’s Country Roads series, but having only read one other book in the series I think it’s safe to say this story can be read as a standalone. There are some minor spoilers from Undone, Undeniable, and Unstoppable, so if you absolutely hate spoilers start from the beginning. Also brought over from the previous books are some delightful former heroes and heroines. Shep’s group of friends are funny and charming and they add tons of warmth to Unforgettable. All in all I adored Hannah and Shep’s romance and I cannot wait to read the rest of the Country Roads series!
