MEANT TO BE                                   NAN REINHARDT

Can a near-tragedy help two best friends realize they’re meant to be so much more?

Best friends since grade school, high-powered Chicago attorney, Sean Flaherty, and small-town mayor Megan Mackenzie have always shared a special bond. When Sean is shot by a client’s angry ex, Megan rushes to his side, terrified she’s about to lose her long-time confidant.

Upon his return to River’s Edge to recuperate, Sean discovers that his feelings for his pal have taken an undeniable turn for the romantic. While Megan struggles with an unfamiliar longing for Sean, she worries that he may be mistaking a safe place to land for love. 
Can Sean help her realize that they are truly meant to be so much more than friends?


     This author had all the elements I love in a romance.  This one is of two best friends since fifth grade.  Sean Flaherty thirty-eight and is a lawyer in Chicago.  He is part owner along with his three brothers Connor, Brenden, and Aidan.  The three took ownership of their father’s winery when he passed.  Four Irish Brothers Winery is now theirs.

     Everyone in River’s Edge is in wedding count down but none more than the bride Samantha who will be marrying Connor.  They met through his oldest brother Sean.  In turn, Sam has become best friends with Sean’s bestie, Megan, who is now her maid of honor.
     As the two women sit having coffee and pie at Megan’s dad’s diner.  Sam gets the worst call anyone can ever get.  Sean has been shot on the steps of the courthouse he’s being taken into surgery Megan goes white then wants to vomit.  All she knows is she must go to him.
     Thanks in great part to Megan, Sean’s ability to recover is quicker and keeps the panic attacks at bay with her around.  She helps all the brothers organize a home care nurse, rehab, and therapy.  At the hospital, she meets Sean’s gorgeous friend and notorious player/friend, Vin.  Sean is having issues with Vin invading his territory and being around his Meg.  But says nothing.
     Sean goes through major changes in his healing process.  His emotions and thoughts as he looks back on his relationship with his Meg.  He sees how Meg handles the changes with him and sees if she believes him at face value.  He knows she was in front of him this whole time his diamond amongst fake gems.
     I totally enjoyed this book.  The author had me right away with these characters.  They were engaging and real.  Most of all you could see yourself living in their town or at least wanting to be.  I give this: 5++++ stars.
