Heartsong Cottage by Emily March

Book Description

Haunted by the loss of his wife and son, Daniel Garrett left the police force to devote his life to finding missing children. But he still hasn't found a way to mend the wounds of his past-until he attends a wedding in the small mountain town of Eternity Springs...and meets a beautiful, intriguing woman who offers a glimpse of something Daniel thought he'd never have again.
Sometimes life gives us 
a second chance at love.
Shannon O'Toole isn't looking for romance. Ever since her fiancé's death, she created a quiet life for herself restoring Victorian cottages. Still, she can't deny her attraction to the handsome, broad-shouldered stranger. Daniel makes her feel things she's hasn't felt in years-including the desire to share her secrets. But can Shannon trust a detective when doing so could bring danger to her cottage door? In Eternity Springs, anything-and everything-is possible...

This was a struggle to finish... I was rolling my eyes throughout the whole thing.  I found the (internal/external) dialogue repetitive and just off (almost to the point where I'd laugh because I found it so unbelievable).  I felt NO connection/desire/love between Daniel and Shannon.  

The story progressed as such:

Worst day in Daniel's life

Wedding (In which Daniel tells Shannon his name is Samuel... I don't know why....)
One night stand
"Fake" marriage
lying, lying, lying
Missing dog found after 10 years...
Pregnacy announced in which Daniel said horrible and unforgivable things
Shannon told Daniel her past
Weird random killer person

I found this story such a struggle to find any part of it believable.
