Iris Daniels’ parents died when she was 14, leaving her and her 18 year old brother to raise their younger siblings and cousins. While her brother was running the ranch, Iris stepped in as the parent figure, putting her own needs on hold. Now 31, with everyone living their own lives, Iris is ready to begin living hers. When she decides to open her own bakery, she must approach Griffin Chance, a hermit after the death of his wife and child. They will each need to face the ghosts of their past in order to move on with their lives and face a future.
Overall, Maisey Yates’s (Amazon affiliate link) The Heartbreaker of Echo Pass is a decent light romance book. While the character development could be somewhat better, the characters are not two-dimensional, as we sometimes see in books. Over the story line develops well. My main complaint is the overuse of the virgin woman trope. Can we be done with that already?
