Author Kelly Collins takes you back to Aspen Cove where life is sweet, the tea is sweeter, and love is the sweetest of all.

Marina Caswell didn’t expect to find herself broken and alone with a four-year-old daughter. She could offer a hundred excuses as to why her marriage failed, but the truth was she’d chosen poorly. After a painful marriage and an ugly divorce, she flees with her little girl to Aspen Cove looking for a place to heal their wounded spirits and mend their shattered hearts. What she doesn’t expect to find in the quirky little town is love in the form of Sheriff Cooper, a man who insists that everything including trust, love, and respect is grown like a garden. All it needs is a bit of attention and care, something Marina has never experienced.

As the local sheriff, Aiden Cooper can recognize trouble at a glance. It usually looks pretty, smells nice, and wears heels. After his last relationship failure, Aiden doesn’t expect love to bloom when single mom Marina Caswell plants roots next door, but when he sees the sadness in her eyes, he makes it his mission to sow seeds of hope and happiness in her heart.

The tiniest kernel of love can grow when the conditions are right, but a weed from Marina’s past threatens to choke out what they’ve cultivated together. Can Aiden and Marina’s love grow and thrive, or will the past seek its revenge, causing their love to wilt and die before it can ever take root?

One Hundred Excuses is the next installment in the Aspen Cove series by Kelly Collins, and it’s the most heartbreaking story I have ever read!

Marina Caswell has finally escaped from the monster of an ex-husband, and has managed to take her step-daughter with her! How? By blackmail! And now  Kellyn and her and her daughter have finally found a safe place in Aspen Cove, living next door to Aspens sheriff Aiden Cooper! And despite the initial attraction, there is so much damage there, especially to Kellyn, who hasn’t spoken a word in years! But Aiden is determined to protect them, and love them.

 But like many things, the monsters never stay away! And now Marina has to fight for her freedom again, but this time she has backup

What a story! It is absolutely magnificent! Now don’t get me wrong, this is not a story where the man rushes in and saves the day! This is very much about women and girls saving themselves! Well to be truthful, the whole series is like that in a way, but in this book, with the nature of the story, it’s so important! And I Loved it.

I give One Hundred Excuses 5 stars!
