Blog Tour: The Best Goodbye by Abbi Glines

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.

“The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was . . . “

After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.

Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh…something strange about the way she looks at Captain…

My Review
I have to admit that I haven't read but maybe one other book in this series, and even then it was a spin off from the series. However, I do think that eventually I will pick up book one and go from there.

River "Captain" Kipling has what i would call a really sad past. Even though it was painful to read about, I think those moment were my favorite because we got a glimpse at the person he use to be. I'm not sure how much he is mentioned in the other books, but I think it will be important to go back and read those to see. I felt like there was so much more about him that I needed to know. Anyways, he's trying to leave his not so innocent past behind him and move on. Which he is starting to be able to do until he meets Rose. She triggers something in him that he had tried to bury years ago.

Rose is a single mom who moved to Rosemary Beach to locate the father of her daughter to see if he is worthy enough to be in their lives. She's been looking for him for years. We are shown glimpses of Rose's past and it wasn't easy. She has overcome that though and became a damn good mom. Sometimes in life you go searching for things and once you find them things go completely opposite of what you expected and that happens here. 

I liked River/Captain and I liked Rose for the most part. At times I found her a little annoying but other parts make up for that and I guess her past explains it. 

Overall this was a quick read for me and I am seriously considering reading the series from the beginning even though this is a Standalone. 
3.5 stars!
