Pulled Beneath by Marni Mann

Bar Harbor #1
Publish date March 18, 2014

Drew Stevens finds her world turned upside down when her parents are brutally murdered. Soon after, she learns she inherited a property in Bar Harbor, Maine, from recently deceased grandparents that she believed had died when she was a baby.

Drew travels north to settle her grandparents’ estate, but finds more questions than answers as the truth starts unraveling. What she didn’t expect to find was Saint, whose reputation is as tumultuous as his past. But the very thing that brings them together is the same thing that keeps them emotionally caged.

My Thoughts:

This is a FIVE STAR story.   It is a story of loving, forgiving, and accepting who we are.   The lessons in this book are definitely something everyone who reads it can learn from and relate to.  The biggest is that lying, even by omission, does nothing but cause problems, whether in the present or the future.

Drew is an incredible woman who has been dealt a bad hand in life.  She grew up with the fairy tale; an attentive and loving set of parents, great friends, and no cares in the world.  When all that is turned upside down with her parents murder she is at loose ends.   Watching her struggle with growing up and having to deal with the house, the will, and learning how to live again was so tough.  It pulled at my heart strings many times.   I am very thankful that she has a support system with her best friend and her family.    

Saint is a complex character.  From the first meeting between Drew and Saint you could feel how he was trying to hold back and not give into the sparks that were flying between them.   As I received more clues as to who Saint was and how he got to be who is he I fell more and more in love with him.   I wanted to be Drew swimming with him, kissing him, and visiting his boat.  

This is the first book in a series and I know that I will be back to check out book two.
