When I started this book I had not read anything else by Violet Howe My discovery of this author was nothing short of amazing This book was just the easy read I needed while on vacation and I immediately was swept away by the characters and settings Violet easily performs flashbacks throughout the story giving further insight just when it is needed to explain a part of the plot The main character Maggie finds herself with mixed emotions when she meets Dax and begins to fall for him The flashbacks easily explain Maggie's struggles from her past and how she has always dismissed love Dax helps her see how the past is the past and he can be her future All of this transpires while Maggie is helping her wedding planning daughter in law plan her daughter's wedding What happens with Maggie can only be told at the ending which is both surprising and heartwarming I highly recommend this book if you want a wide array of emotional experiences and a great sense of romantic ideas Loved this addition to the Tales Behind the Veils world Maggie is an engaging well rounded character and after the first chapter you need to know how this love story ends for her Filled with flashbacks humor a sexy love interest and heart warming cameos from the Diary of A Wedding Planner series I highly suggest this novel and hope for I have been following this author from the start and have never been disappointed with one of their novels Love love love I really enjoyed this book especially how the main character's past was woven in with her present There were also a few times when I thought it was suspenseful even though it isn't a mystery I liked how Violet made Maggie a complex character She wasn't one dimensionalI recommend this book because it is fun and interesting This is a very realistic story about having a second chance at love for both characters This was my first book of the series but now I can’t wait to read about Cabe and Tyler This definitely stands on its ownThis is probably one of the most “real” books I’ve read in a long time The nuances of life in central Florida were a joy to read and this story definitely took its time to build and for love to growMaggie is understandably gun shy – have patience as all will be revealed about her past with Gerry Tucker The chemistry between her and “Dax” is undeniable There are so many facets to these characters and the story “I blushed as I considered where I needed to go and how many ways the strong cowboy could get me there”There is much heartbreak in both their pasts and they both deal with that in completely opposite ways which almost tears them apart You will laugh giggle swoon cry and cheer for Maggie and Dax I also loved the movie references – I’m a sucker for pop culture tidbits in novels“I’d spent the last twenty six years convincing myself that I didn’t need a man in my life but I sure as h wanted this one”I can’t really do this book justice for how great I felt it was It was a joy to read and you really felt like you knew these characters and cried along with their pain This book was just fantasticI voluntarily reviewed this book after reuesting it from the publisher I started reading the A Tales Behind the Veils as my granddaughter was actually a wedding planner in Orlando the other 3 books were about Tyler and Cabe the wedding planner and her son Maggie was always in the books but as the Mother of the groom In this book her daughter Galen is gettting married Tyler and Maggie are making all the arrangements as Galen lives out of town They venture to a ranch to check out their wedding venue They are promptly greeted with a run away horse who throws the rider into a lake right in front of them in February no less Maggie and Dax are immediately attracted We know from the other books that Maggie is not interested in a man after her experience with Gerry Tucker This book tells Maggie's story of how a very young Diva falls for a very powerful man who convinces her her she needs to rest with a broken foot As the star of the ballet she is upset and he convinces her to just let him take control he did and the rest is in the book Being from central FLorida I love to read books that are set in this location You can get visuals of where they are without really there yes a cowboy and a dancer can make things work I hope the series contimes with Galen's story next A wonderful romance which takes the reader on an emotional rideMaggie started out a sheltered child with incredible talent Her first taste of love was extremeIn this book we are meeting Maggie in her mature years with grown children She has settled into her own way of life for over two decades Having given up control at a younger age Maggie is determined to be self sufficient even at the cost of giving love another chance She had been burned severely before Her story unfolds gracefully at a comfortable pace with relevant flashbacks thrown in for the reader to full understand Dax is every older heroine 's dream man A combination of rugged and refinedCapable with a wealth of caring and concern His heart has also been broken and he is learning to navigate life himself Their story makes the reader believe in the potential for happy endings This book just kept me enthralled It’s the story of Maggie Cabe’s mother She’s not been in a real relationship since she went through hell with Cabe and Galen’s father 20 years ago Then one day she and Tyler are looking at an event space for Galen’s wedding and she meets Dax Dax pursues Maggie even though he’s still heartbroken about the loss of his wife and unborn child It was such a great read this has to be one of my top favorite books It’s nice to read love stories about older people even though late 40’s is my age so I don’t consider it older some days lol I was thoroughly invested and didn’t want the book to end That’s what happens when you find a well written book by an amazing author I can’t wait to explore other titles by Ms Howe you now have a fan for life PS I would give the book stars if I could Second chance romances are one of my favs and Maggie does not disappoint I'm struggling writing a review because everything I say is like a huge spoiler So I'm just going with my gut and saying READ THE DAMN BOOK I LOVED IT A moving romance tale of second time round love moving on from one's past and fabulous chemistry Love the storyRead all four books loved them all good there is another one about Maggie and Dax getting married or something
