The Claytons and Harringtons are back!
Drew Harrington loves baseball, drumming and Cassie Anteros, although not necessarily in that order. After his parents die, Drew finds comfort in all the wrong places, until Cassie discovers him passed out, facedown, in his own vomit.
Cassie Anteros is a big-hearted, sheltered princess who Drew abandons when he leaves school to get himself together. After graduation, with an Ivy League degree in hand and years of grooming behind her, Cassie is well-positioned to take over her father's Wall Street firm, but a lump in her left breast sets her life on a different path.
Now eight years later, he's the very sexy general manager of the Boston Blues baseball team, and she's an award-winning baker in Baltimore. When the two come face-to-face, the earth trembles under their feet, threatening to swallow them whole. She still owns a piece of his soul, and he lives-on in her heart, but is that enough for Drew and Cassie to get a second chance at love, or has time and suffering already sealed their fate?
Petite Madeleine is a wonderful second chance romance that will leave you with a smile in the end. This is Drew and Cassie's story. They were a couple in college until the death of his parents sent Drew into a dark place. Now 10 years later, they have had a chance meeting and Drew won't let her go again.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved watching this couple find their way back to each other. I thought the way they dealt with the issues of Cassie's breast cancer and on going treatment came across as very real. The emotions of everyone involved rang very true for me, when it came to Drew's brother's. As the author said in her introduction, every person's journey is different. I really enjoyed taking this journey with this couple.
This book is the third in the series. Each one does stand up well as a stand alone. They are filled with a big loud and loving family and just a lot of fun to read. I highly recommend this series and look forward to the next book!

About the Author:
Eva Charles is the author of the multi-titled Meadows Shore Series that chronicles the lives and loves of the Clayton-Harrington family. She invites you to visit their beloved Meadows Shore nestled in the charming seaside town of Fair Harbor, where you will enjoy love, laughter, loyalty, and an abundance of mouth-watering food, Portuguese style.
After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful Western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkeys, deer, and coyotes roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she'd been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into a romantic tale.
When she's not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you've ever seen, Eva's creating chapters in her own love story.
