STILL THE ONE by Rachel D. Russell, Reviewed by Nicole Cook

“I’ve always remembered you.” His eyes held hers. “You’ve always been the one.”

With award-winning author Susan May Warren’s guidance and support, Rachel D. Russell crafts a stellar return to the beloved town of Deep Haven in her debut novel, Still the One. Fans of Susan May Warren will be thrilled to take a journey back to Deep Haven in this fantastic new series written by debut authors with a writing style similar to Warren's. Susan May Warren is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors, and she continues to create phenomenal stories with captivating heroes who become fan favorites, while also drawing readers closer to their faith. With cameo appearances from popular Deep Haven characters and the introduction of fabulous new characters, Rachel D. Russell’s Still the One is the perfect addition to the Deep Haven Collection.

 “Don’t ever give up on a happy ending or what God might do in your life, Megan. You just don’t know how God can surprise you in unexpected ways.”

Readers will be introduced to former Army Ranger Cole Barrett, who returns to Deep Haven and reconnects with childhood friend Megan Carter in less than ideal circumstances. This heartwarming tale of forgiveness and discovering true love will find a place in the hearts of readers everywhere. I can’t wait to read more from author Rachel D. Russell.

Still the One is highly recommended for fans of contemporary romance, especially readers who enjoy novels by authors such as Denise Hunter, Becky Wade, Courtney Walsh, Melissa Tagg, Tari Faris, and Susan May Warren.

It’s never too late to finish a love story…
Former Army Ranger Cole Barrett has a new mission objective—sell his grandfather’s house in Deep Haven, and leave the town that contains his childhood hurts for good. Unfortunately, the tenant in the garage apartment refuses to move. Even worse? It’s his childhood crush, Megan Carter, and her son.

Wedding planner and single mom Megan Carter loves Deep Haven. To her, it’s the place where she makes dreams come true—at least, everyone else’s. Hoping to purchase a local B & B and turn it into a premier event venue, she’s oh, so close to her down payment…until Cole Barrett returns to Deep Haven. Even if he’s not back to fulfill a silly childhood promise to marry her, she never expected him to evict her!

When a blizzard strikes Deep Haven, and Megan is overrun with wedding catastrophes, it takes a former Ranger to step in and help. Besides, the more he comes to her rescue, the sooner she’ll be able to move out…and he can move on. And that’s what they both want, right?

Return to Deep Haven with this magical tale about the one who got away…and came back
