Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Still the One by Rachel D. Russell presented by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
Title: Still the One Series: Deep Haven Collection #1 Author: Rachel D. Russell presented by Susan May Warren Publisher: Sunrise Publishing Release Date: January 12, 2021 Genre: Christian Contemporary RomanceIt’s never too late to finish a love story… Cole Barrett, former Army Ranger, has a new mission objective. Sell his grandfather’s house and put Deep Haven, a place that holds too many hurts, in his rearview mirror as fast as possible. Recently divorced, single, and unattached, Cole just wants a new life as a US Marshal. One where he can forget the past and start new. Unfortunately, there’s a tenant in the garage apartment who’s refusing to move. Even worse? It’s his childhood crush, Megan Carter, and her son. Wedding planner and single mom Megan Carter loves Deep Haven. To her, it’s the place where she makes dreams come true—at least, everyone else’s. Her big dream is to purchase the Black Spruce Bed & Breakfast to turn it into a premier event venue and, if she can stay booked for enough weddings over winter, she’ll have the needed funds to buy the inn, move out of Grandpa Barrett’s garage apartment, and finally give her nine-year-old son, Josh, the life he deserves. She just needs four thousand dollars in the next thirty days. Still, she’s oh, so close…until Cole Barrett returns to Deep Haven. Even if he’s not back to fulfill a silly childhood promise to marry her, but she never expected him to evict her! The last thing she needs is more expenses. Or for another man to walk into her heart…and break it. When a blizzard strikes Deep Haven, and Megan is overrun with wedding catastrophes, it takes a former Ranger to step in and help. Besides, the more he comes to her rescue, the sooner she’ll be able to move out…and he can move on. And that’s what they both want, right? Return to Deep Haven with this magical tale about the one who got away…and came back.

Still the One by Rachel D. Russell is the first book in the new Deep Haven Collection, a return to the small town of Deep Haven, Minnesota featured in Susan May Warren’s Deep Haven and Christiansen Family series.
Cole Barrett wants in and out of Deep Harbor, staying only long enough to sell his grandfather’s house, but Megan Carter and her son are tenets he’ll have to kick out first. The same Megan who is his best friend from the summers he spent visiting and the only good memory he has left of the small town.
Megan is a wedding planner, trying to build her business as a single mom. Money is tight, so with the threat of loosing her housing option, she faces an uncertain future. And as happy as she is to see Cole, he’s left her once already and she knows he doesn’t plan to stick around this time either.
Still the One is an enjoyable romance with heartfelt emotions and characters that will keep you reading. I haven’t read Susan May Warren’s previous two series set around Deep Haven, but liked that characters from the past were part of this story. Cole and Megan have plenty to work through, struggles that appear on full display in such a small community. Jobs, housing, romance. Will all the pieces fall together so everyone gets their happily ever after?
