Blog Tour/Review: Family of His Own by Catherine Lanigan



On Tour with Prism Book Tours.



Family of His Own
(Shores of Indian Lake #8)

Catherine Lanigan
Adult Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 384 pages
July 1st 2017 by Harlequin Heartwarming

He's ready to settle down…with or without her

Scott Abbott has always loved Isabelle Hawks. And he's always been her rock. Patient, dependable, strong. But lately, she's been acting like that rock is weighing her down. With her art career taking off, Isabelle has been spending less and less time in Indian Lake…and with him. Scott isn't even sure what they are to each other anymore. They might be friends with a history, but it sure doesn't feel like a future. Maybe it's time for Scott to set her free and focus on his own dreams. A real home. A family. All the things he had hoped to share with her…

Scott and Isabelle have been friends for many years. They are definitely attracted to each other but neither of them have attempted to take their relationship to the next level. Isabelle is an artist that has been looking for her big break and is ready when it finally comes. Scott makes a life-altering decision which changes their relationship and Isabelle needs to decide what she truly wants in life.

Scott is easy to love! He cares deeply for others and shows incredible love for two people who desperately need him. Isabelle is harder to like. She raised her younger siblings and is ready to live her own life. She's selfish and does become aware of that so works to make changes. She did grow on me through the course of the book. There were some twists along the way and I wasn't quite sure how this one would end. 

I love spending time in Indian Lake! It's fun to catch up with some of the other couples we've met in previous books and learn what's happening in their lives. This book does stand well on its own, so if it's your first visit to Indian Lake, you won't feel lost, and will most likely want to get to know the other characters as well. I hope to meet more Indian Lake residents in the future!
