No Place Too Far by Kay Bratt
A By the Sea Novel Book 2
Print and e-book, 311 pages
Published September 1st 2020 by Lake Union Publishing

Maggie Dalton was forced to uproot her entire life to protect herself and her son. Just when she thinks she’s outrun her past, she’ll have to face her fears in this emotional and suspenseful novel by the bestselling author of Wish Me Home.

After a year on the move, single mom Maggie Dalton has found a safe haven with her son in Maui. It’s the perfect spot to settle down now that her relentless stalker is finally behind bars. Maggie finds a new job and a new life thanks to some help from her best friend, Quinn, who urged her to come start over in paradise. But when signals suggest her stalker is back, Maggie realizes Maui might not be the safe oasis she thought.

Quinn knows all about facing the past. Tenuously reunited with her biological family after thirty years, she’s still coming to terms with her childhood—along with guilt, secrets, and mysteries yet to be resolved. And just as she’s starting to figure out where she fits in with her family, a name from the past threatens them all.

With that fear comes a choice for both women: abandon the lives they’ve been building on Maui, or find the courage to finally stop running and fight for the happiness they deserve.


My thoughts about No Place Too Far ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"'Is that a search-and-rescue dog?' the old man asked, his eyes on Woodrow."

I absolutely loved book one in this series, True to Me, and couldn't wait to go back to Quinn's world and the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Well, No Place Too Far, book two is every bit a good as the first one.

The story centers on Quinn's best friend Maggie who moves to Maui to escape the troubles in her past. But when her past comes looking for her, things get dangerous. Watching Maggie figure out what she wants and stand up to the evil from her past make this a story that will grab your heart. Meanwhile, Quinn also has to face her past and either flee or stay and fight for what's important.

The author has created an intriguing story in a beautiful setting that will keep you enthralled all while feeling a little bit like you are on vacation. This is an amazing series with characters that I have come to love and I'm super excited for book number three! 

I received a copy of No Place Too Far from the author via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
