Mac Kayla, Stephen McBride and Michael O’Conners were best friends in college and spent as much time together as they could. An argument, a flat tire, strong arms carrying Mac Kayla into the cabin led to a night of romance, which led to a pregnancy. When Michael and Stephen had a falling out, Michael left town taking the secret of his love for Mac Kayla and their night of romance with him. Three years later, Stephen died leaving Mac Kayla in full ownership of their country resort. She had no idea that her life and that of her children’s was about to change forever when a truth is finally revealed.
Michael My Love by Pat Gillespie is a contemporary romance; it reads fast and is entertaining. My only criticism is the plot has been used too many times. The characters were well developed and easy to connect with. Mac Kayla drew my sympathy when she thought she had met a reputable man, only to find out that he took her for everything she had. I think she was more than a little naïve. Michael My Love is a good read; it can be a great read if the author will find a unique spin on the story. This is a great afternoon read that reminds me of the Silhouette-type books.
