Blog Tour: Review of Low Country Hero by Lee Tobin McClain

Author: Lee Tobin McClain
Date of publication: February 2019

Welcome to Safe Haven, where love—and a second chance—is just around the corner…
Sunny, carefree days splashing in the ocean—it’s the life Anna George has always wanted for her five-year-old twins. And now that they’ve made it to Safe Haven, South Carolina, she won’t let anyone stand in her way. Not the abusive ex she’s just escaped and not the rugged contractor who caught her setting up house in the shuttered beachfront cabins he’s refurbishing. When he offers Anna and her daughters a place to stay in exchange for her help with renovations, she’s tempted. His gentle way with her girls makes her want to trust him, but she’s been wrong before…

A family is the last thing contractor and former military man Sean O’Dwyer wants right now. But when he discovers Anna and her girls, he recognizes kindred spirits. They’re survivors who’ve seen the worst of people, just like he has, and he’ll do anything he can to help them. As he and Anna spend their days bringing the cottages back to life and their nights sharing kisses in the warm bayou breezes, Sean must choose between the life he always wanted and the family he can’t live without.

Low Country Hero is the first in a new series about a small town called Safe Haven.  It's a town known for being a safe place to recover and find new life.  This is Anna and Sean's story.   The prologue was pretty in your face brutal and sad.  But, it sets up the reason for Sean and his brothers to be raised in Safe Haven. 

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I thought it did a nice job of dealing with the reality of domestic abuse. However, I thought the romance between Anna and Sean was way too fast.  I would have loved to see Anna stand on her own two feet and be financially secure before agreeing to have a HEA with another man.  I just felt like the trust and love came too soon.  But that is on me.  It was still an enjoyable read.  I loved the twins!  They were the best part of the book.  I will probably check out the next one to see Liam's story.

Domestic abuse is a heavy topic to take on but it sounds like this author did a good job of it. Thanks for being on the tour!
