Review for Past Due

Jenna Austin is a young, widowed artist raising a teenage son on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As the costs of living in paradise rise, she struggles to make ends meet. Life isn't easy, but she manages.

When her car breaks down, she trudges on. She assumes life can't get any more complicated than it is. But it can...

Chance brings her nose to well-formed chest with Tres Coulter, the handsome, affluent aid to Governor Hunt. Jenna and Tres share a history; they also share a love they thought long lost. Their lives are about to be altered forever as the deceptions of the past transform the very foundation of the present.

The price of happily ever after may be too steep to pay once the past comes due.

My review:
Life can't get any worse for Jenna Austin. Even when her car breaks down, she keeps trudging onward. Her son counts on her after all. That's when gorgeous Tres Coulter steps back into her life. Once upon a time, she loved him, but he'd left her to struggle on her own. Neither of them know the truth of what happened, though, and their happiness depends on them finding out.

A sweet romance with a ton of heart. A cozy little beach town is the perfect place for a love story and a great big misunderstanding. The plot is a huge ball of tangles and knots, and it slowly unravels. It left me wondering each time how they were going to get past that conflict and surprised me with the strength and compassion of the characters. The characters are lovable and genuine even with their flaws.

I will definitely be reading more from Elizabeth Seckman!
