A warm (and occasionally hot) touching story of Hamish and Rose who get a second chance at happiness together when he returns injured from the army. I liked both of them. A good taster from this author and I will read more of her books. This one is quite short - hence the 3 star rating

Hamish is an army lad returned home after an horrific injury, including retrograde amnesia (he can't remember anything from the last 10/15 years). He can remember a name though, Rose. When taken to recuperate at the family beach house, by his brother Eamon, he comes across the lady herself. Thanks to Eamon, he knows they were hot and heavy for three weeks, and that it ended badly, but he doesn't know why? Rose is the key to that locked door.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Hamish is sexy and sweet, and Rose's direct approach about his injuries is so refreshing and endearing. I like the way Serenity told the story too, she starts in the present then flicks to the past as Rose tell's Hamish the story of them, then back to the present to see how they both deal with the knowledge of what happened and why. Like I said, whole lotta story, but it never feels rushed. I have to admit I even welled up a bit at the end, maybe it's because I'm a wuss, maybe it's because I'm the daughter of a Vietnam veteran, I like to thinks it's because it's great story telling. Thanks Serenity, oh and PS Can Eamon have a happy ever after too? and does he work with Neon from White Hot Christmas?

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed the story very much. It is the story of Hamish, a soldier who has been terribly injured in an explosion caused by a suicide bomber when on duty as a soldier in Afghanistan. Apart from his bodily injuries he has lost all memory of the last ten years of his life; but the name Rose strikes a chord within him, he knows it is important but does not know why.
He arrives home from a long stay in hospital, and stays in the family owned beach house with his fireman brother Eamon, to recuperate in peace and quiet; and here he meets Rose on the beach. Over the next few days Rose explains their history, and they gradually reconnect. The ending is quite poignant. It is a gentle romance, and makes you aware of some of the issues experienced by war veterans who come home having been badly injured, their career over, and possibly an uncertain future ahead of them.
I think the story could have been longer and told the readers a little more about Hamish's recuperation process, hence the four stars. It is an enjoyable read, perfect for a lazy afternoon.

Now this is a cute story. Hamish has returned from being in the Army due to injury. He's not only lost a leg, but he's also lost a lot of his memory. Going home, gives him the time he needs to recover maybe not just his memory but to figure out what he's going to do.
When Rose hears that Hamish is back in town, she has to go see him. The last time they saw each other, it was heartbreaking for them both. She'll have to tell him their story and see if there is any love left or if it will trigger his memory of her.
Will Hamish remember the time he had with Rose or will they be able to reignite the love they once shared? This is a worthwhile read for anyone seeking some romance and love. This is well written as well.

Absolutely loved this short story (its 84% of book). So poignant, touching, humerous, happy. Really loved how she dealt with hamish and his issues but ending was a bit quick. Couple typos. A keeper to reread.

This is the second Serenity Woods I've read and I've really liked them both. But they are too short. The characters are realistic and endearing and love the description of the New Zealand scenery.
