Then Came You
Then Came You
Deep Haven Collection #4

By Rachel D. Russell
presented by Susan May Warren

A forced "vacation" is the last thing, Detective Daniel "Boone" Buckam wants and ordered to spend it in Deep Haven is almost more than he can stand. But his R&R takes a most unexpected and rather pleasant turn when Vivien Calhoun comes into his life.

Vivien needs a stand-in boyfriend to counter her half-sister's venomous disposition. But she gets more than that when she manages to get them caught up in a parade. After Boone's rescue, Vivie determines that she will help Boone out but trouble seems determined to mess up her carefully laid plans.

But one can't tell the heart how to behave and who to like. But Vivien knows she is a mess and not at all who Boone needs in his life, especially if he plans on returning home and becoming Chief of Police. 

Then Came You is a fun addition to the world of Deep Haven that readers have come to know and love over the years. This is a chance for two characters to find healing and perhaps love in the process. And there is a mystery with a touch of danger running through the story, as well, perfect for Boone to put his detective skills to work. I really love this newest addition to Deep Haven and love how past characters are present and integral parts of the story. Now this book is part of a series but it is able to be enjoyed as a complete story on its own, you just won't have all the back story.  So sit back and get ready to enjoy a perfect summer read.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.


Title: Then Came You
Series: Deep Haven Collection #4
Author: Rachel D. Russell presented by Susan May Warren
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date: July 6, 2021
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

He doesn’t need any trouble. She can’t seem to escape it.

Detective Daniel “Boone” Buckam is more than burned out. After fourteen stellar years on the job, one bad judgment call—and, fine, a whole lot of cynicism—has forced him into a mandatory vacation in Deep Haven. If he can get his head on straight, there’s a job as Police Chief waiting for him back in his Minneapolis suburb. And then, he meets Vivien. 

Actress Vivien Calhoun isn’t really a drama queen. Sure, she gets swept up in the emotions of life—but please, she’s an actress. Or, um, was until a stalker made her flee the bright lights of Broadway. Now, she’s passionate about directing her local theater production. But when she accidentally ropes an uptight police detective on vacation into her cast, she can’t help but wonder if he might be the leading man she’s always longed for. 

Boone can’t help but like Vivien. He might even have a type—vivacious and bubbly, with a penchant for attracting danger. He can smell trouble even if she can’t, and is pretty sure her stalker has hunted her all the way to Deep Haven. He’ll have to stay by her side—even if it means being in her silly play—to keep her safe. But Vivien is more than he expected as she helps him discover a part of him he’s locked away…the part that said he could never love again. 

It’s summertime in Deep Haven, and the fun is heating up in this laugh-out-loud, charming story.
