Second-grade teacher, Becca Haddaway, is weeks away from walking down the aisle when she learns that the Heron Island Elementary School is about to be shut down. In the midst of a whirlwind of wedding planning, she launches into a last-ditch effort to save it. But the one man who can help her is determined to make her question every decision she has ever made—including the man she’s about to marry.
Former Navy SEAL and son of the current Maryland governor, Colin Foley, is finally starting to feel whole again after losing his leg on a career-ending deployment in Afghanistan. After struggling for months to figure out what to do with his post-military life, he’s found a new mission—opening a rehab center for wounded veterans on the peaceful Chesapeake Bay island. All he needs now is a woman to share his new life with…and he knows exactly who he wants.
With a little help from the island’s magical wind chimes, can Colin convince Becca to change her mind before it’s too late?
Colin Foley never considered himself a hero – but that’s exactly what he is. He fought his way back after an injury that would have destroyed most men and he’s made it his new mission to reach out and help those that need it the most.
Even though he grew up in moneyed suburbs of Annapolis, the peace and tranquility of the island are exactly what he’s looking for. It’s just far enough away from the city and all of the political posturing that always seems to follow him because of his family name. So when Becca Haddaway approaches him to use some of that clout to help save the beloved Heron Island Elementary School, he agrees.
There’s just something about Becca that makes her different from every other woman he’s ever encountered. Not only is she giving and compassionate, but she’s also unassumingly beautiful and he can’t seem to stop thinking about what it would be like if she wasn’t engaged to marry someone else.
“It wasn’t every day that someone on the island got married. He understood why everyone was making such a big deal about it. There was a time, not too long ago, when he’d actually enjoyed weddings. But after his own engagement had come to a grinding halt—and he’d had plenty of time to think about how easy it had been for his fiancée to give him his ring back and derail their future when he’d been laid up in bed for weeks recovering from surgery—he’d begun to view the entire institution as a joke. What was the point in spending so much time and effort on one day to celebrate a union that probably wouldn’t even last?”
Becca always knew Colin was striking. With his dark hair, his intense eyes and the aura of loneliness that seems to always be around him – he drew her attention more than she was ever comfortable with.
After all, she was going to be married and leave the island to finally be able to spread her wings. But when she finds that the school is in danger of closing, she reaches out to the one person who is a danger to all of her perfectly laid out plans – Colin Foley.
She discovers that sometimes love takes you outside of your comfort zone and changes what you always though you wanted – and sometimes you don’t need to go far away to take a risk with your heart.
“She had never been kissed like his before. She had never felt anything like this before. She didn’t want it to stop. Her blood hummed, pumping faster. She could feel his desire, the hard length of him pressing against her. There were too many clothes, too much material between them. She needed to feel him—all of him. As if he’d read her mind, his hands dipped beneath the hem of her shirt, cruising up the front of her stomach, heating her flesh. When his calloused palm closed over her breast, a small sound escaped from deep in her throat. Where had this been all her life? Where had he been?”
Wind Chime Wedding is the perfect summer read! Sophie’s words magically transport you right to the middle of the island where you can actually hear the boats in the water and smell the salty air. Each and every member of this complex community of characters will steal your heart and you'll never want to leave…
