Goodreads:  Madison’s heart closed the day her twin brother died.

Since losing her twin, Michael, in a drowning incident, Madison has rejected the faith he lived by. Instead, she’s devoted her life to fulfilling Michael’s dream—winning the River Sail Regatta in their small Indiana town, Chapel Springs.

As she trains for the regatta, Beckett O’Reilly is teaching Madison to swim. But he’s keeping a painful secret from her—and as they grow closer, that secret threatens to upend their lives . . . and the lives of both their families.

Ope’s Opinion:  This was such an awesome story.  I enjoyed it from page one right through to the last page.  There were enough twists to keep me reading.  Even though you could predict the ending, the  story was not predictable.  

The characters were interesting and engaging.  I wanted the best for each them. They  each had flaws and difficulties they were dealing with – that made them feel real and relatable.

When I started this book I was aware there was a second book as part of the series.  I was glad when I got to the end, to know I would be reading more about this family.

Rating: 4.5 – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
