BT Shelter Me 3.jpg
Debut novel Shelter Me by Author Kathy Coopmans

At the young age of nineteen, Shayne Andrews thought she had it all. She had the love of her life, her high school sweetheart, and a bright future ahead of her. That is, until one day he just disappeared, leaving a note as his only goodbye. With her heart shattered and broken, Shayne did the only thing she could. She left her small town on the shores of Lake Michigan to start her life over, needing to distance herself from the memories she and Luke had made. At that time, she vowed to herself that she would never return to her hometown again. Seven years later, Shayne realizes that fate is not on her side as she returns home for her aunt’s funeral, bringing back the one secret she swore to protect.

Luke Schavone has regretted every day that he had to leave Shayne behind. Though he didn’t have a choice, his heart still bore the scars from the impact. After five years, Luke returned only to find that Shayne was gone. His best friend was the only lifeline he had to finding her, but Adam wasn’t talking. When the one thing Luke has wanted everyday for the past seven years runs right into him one night, he becomes determined to make sure he doesn’t lose her again.

At first, Shayne is hesitant. She wouldn’t be able to survive losing him again, but the pull toward him is so fierce, she can’t deny herself the chance. With the decision to start over, Luke and Shayne must admit truths and come to terms with the events that forced them apart in the first place. When secrets are revealed and old threats come to pass, will Luke be able to shelter Shayne from the destruction, or will she become lost to him forever?

For this to be a debut novel I must say that I was really impressed. The story hooked me from the beginning and kept me until the end. I loved Luke and Shayne. Although this is a book about second chances and what can happen when other people interfere and decide that they know what is best for you it's also about first love and living again. The supporting characters Erin, Adam, Bubba and Jen were the best and of course Lucy made the story all the more worth while. I liked the struggles that the characters went through to get where they were although Shayne sometimes made me want to slap her upside the head and tell her to kill herself (not in a bad way she kept upsetting me) I understood where she was coming from and how she was feeling. This book had the right amount of love, suspense, and happiness that I was looking for. I look forward to reading the next book in this series to see what happens next.
