A solid story. Love the Barron family I'd like to see where a few of the loose ends wrap up but over all a good read ( )

Phillips ends her Serendipity trilogy with Dare, the youngest and most open of the Barron brothers. Or so we thought. The truth is, Dare has been harboring a lot of pain and guilt over the death of a teen at a party he attended as a teen. He didn't have anything to do with the teen dying, but he didn't do anything to help or to stop the parents of the mid responsible for creating a cover-up.

Dare has been attracted to Liza for a ling time. Unfortunately it was her brother who caused the boy's death all those years ago, and Dare can't get past his hatred for him.

Liza is used to relying on herself. She works, bails her brother out when he needs it and escapes to the city on the weekends to blow off stream. So she might have a little crush on sexy cop Dare Barron..she isn't going to act on it. She knows better than anyone that you can't trust people and men don't stick around.

But when Liza gets injured, its Dare who takes care of her... they soon realize they have more than attraction between them. But Dare is still tangled up in the past...and so is Liza.

This wasn't always easy to read. Both Dare and Liza had a lot of baggage they needed to deal with. There were times I was frustrated with both of them. I understood, however, why they acted the way they did. Neither was wrong for feeling the way they did. I think Phillips did a credible job of helping them both work through their past issues, and to recognize that they had to forgive themselves before they could be with each other.

A solid read. ( )

Dear Readers:

Welcome back to the town of Serendipity and the third Barron brothers novel.  I'm thrilled at the response I've received so far to the small town and its beloved characters!

KARMA
 
Police Officer Dare Barron has had a crush on Liza McKnight ever since he was a teenager. But despite his lifelong attraction, the closest he's ever come to interacting with her is watching Liza regularly bail out her brother at the station.
 
Dare's dark past with Liza's brother, Brian, has always kept him from pursuing her. But suddenly Liza finds herself in need of protection and Dare appoints himself as the man for the job.  And while the sizzling attraction between Dare and Liza draws them together, the past that  Dare and Brian share threatens to keep the two apart forever.

ENJOY!
Best,
Carly Phillips
