“If you change your mind, here’s this.” Finn Lanigan kissed a young Blythe Heywood one last time under a star-scattered Idaho sky. It was the last kiss that ever weakened her knees, the last sky she noticed for over a dozen years. Then she left, returning to her fiancĂ©, the wedding she’d committed to, and the secure life she’d yearned for since she was a little girl.

Thirteen years later, her husband leaves Blythe for his young associate. Devastated, she’s unable to imagine the next chapter of her life as she packs her family’s belongings to move across town. Unexpectedly, she finds the forgotten slip of paper bearing Finn’s phone number in the back of a drawer.

Hadn’t she tossed it years before as a newlywed, when she vowed to be the perfect wife and mother? Apparently not. Here it remained. Her road not taken.

Facing three weeks without her young daughters, Blythe sets out to find the man she left behind so long ago. With only the name of the small town where he once lived, Peregrine, Idaho, and the memory of their last kiss under a starry sky, she heads across the Pacific Northwest in search of him.

What she finds in the foothills of Blue Mountain challenges everything she thought she knew and is the very last thing she expected. Within days, her life changes forever. But it is her destiny and destinies cannot be denied.

The first book of the Blue Mountain Collection, laced with Thompson’s lovable but complex characters, “Blue Midnight” is a mature love story about second chances, family, and the complexities of trust and vulnerability after betrayal.

My Review: Blythe could have stayed with that man. Maybe she would have had some sort of life together. Instead she decided to go back to the man she was to marry. Together and happy they were and have a lovely family. Eventually her husband decided he wants to be with his coworker and leaves Blythe. Life is going to suck for Blythe right now. Figuring out what to do next in her life and worry about her girls, are normal and tough things to worry about. 

So what ends up happening is Blythe getting back up and facing the road back onto her life. And to start she is going to find that man who left her knees weak at just a kiss.  

Some paranormal aspects were thrown in, when she has these strong dreams and knowing that the lady running the inn is kinda psychic. Seems normal, and the search for her man? Well it ended with her falling for Finn's brother Kevin. But then again, she still has that strong connection with Finn. So would you rather have that love? Or have a man that you aren't sure you can trust? 

Blythe is strong and a great character. She stands up and takes her life into her own hands and I love that. I liked the romance, some paranormal, and edge of seat reading. Just the suspense had me on my seat at times and everything was just awesome. The pace, the story, the writing, all was done very well and I can't wait to read more!

I give this book 4 stars!
