  7. Find all of my reviews at time I have never read nor really had the desire to read anything by Elin Hildebrand Partially because I had no clue where to even begin and partially because my poolside types of reads tend to be a little heavier handed on tattoed alpha men than it appears would be present in her books Buuuuuuuuuut, much like with every end cap I have ever passed at Wal Mart or Target, this book was errrrrrrywhere on the Instagram and Find all of my reviews at time I have never read nor really had the desire to read anything by Elin Hildebrand Partially because I had no clue where to even begin and partially because my poolside types of reads tend to be a little heavier handed on tattoed alpha men than it appears would be present in her books Buuuuuuuuuut, much like with every end cap I have ever passed at Wal Mart or Target, this book was errrrrrrywhere on the Instagram and after experiencing weather like this for the past month I needed an escape.All that being said, I had no idea what this was about before beginning aside from I knew it was the first in a series I did know I wanted to be the woman on the cover and My reaction upon starting and discovering the jumping off point to getting from horrible Iowa winter to tropical St John was not only a husband who died courtesy of a helicopter crash, but one who also HAD A SECOND SECRET FAMILY was pretty much like So we get introduced to Irene, the original 50 something wife of dead adult...
