Review: Navy Baby by Debbie Macomber

First line: On her knees in the bathroom floor, Hannah Raymond viewed parts of the toilet that were never meant to be seen at such short range.

From the back cover: It was a night she'd never forget...two strangers coming together in one breathless moment of intense need and heart-stopping desire. But now sheltered Hannah Raymond is expecting the child of rugged naval seaman Riley Murdock - a man she never thought she'd see again...

Riley has been searching for the elusive Hannah for months - ever since that night of searing passion left him shaken to the very depths of his soul. Now fate has finally reunited them. Determined to give his child the chance he'd never had, Riley marries Hannah.

They had created the miracle of life together, but would that be enough to spark the miracle of love?

My thoughts: This is the fifth in Debbie Macomber's Navy series and I found it to be a very quick read. I loved both characters and it was fun watching them overcome their not so perfect situation and grow to love each other as they did.

Navy Baby is about two people who are trying to do the right thing, about two people who both try - eventually - to rise above their anger and bitterness to try to create something beautiful, meaningful - and lasting. Hannah, angry, bitter, and mad at the world, is still trying to come to terms with losing her fiance. She stumbles into Riley one night and sparks fly. One thing leads to another, a crazy night of passion ensues, and she runs away the next morning. Riley can't seem to get Hannah out of his mind and does everything he can think of to find this girl. A few months later, it is Hannah's father that gets the two together after finding out that Hannah is pregnant. After a tense meeting, it is decided that the two will marry. As they adjust to their new situation, there are many humorous scenes and many touching, romantic scenes. Will these two get out of their own way before it's too late and a child is brought into this world with two distant parents?

I love reading good, sometimes cheesy, sometimes poignant, romance stories and no one does that better than Debbie Macomber. Not only does she give us a love story, but she gives us real characters that we can oftentimes relate to. I've had fun going back and reading this series and can't wait to see what's in store next for Debbie Macomber, now that she has finished writing her Cedar Cove series.
