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?

Elaine's Review:

Well what can I say about Kathy Coopmans, I have to tell you that she is AWESOME for her debut book, I agree that you need to put your kids to bed and have a Corona while you read this book. I was on an emotional roller coaster ride through the whole damn book.. Her writing style each and every word flowed together as she told her story. Luke and Shayne is a love story came true in every sense way, they had a long hard road to find each other again and I am sure glad that it did...This is a must read in my book.

Tami's Review:

This is the perfect debut novel for Kathy Coopmans!!!!! I was intrigued from the first chapter and my attention was kept throughout the entire book.
We all dream of second chances and the what ifs in life but are rearely granted the possibility of achieving it.
Luciano, Luke to those who know him, all i can say about his is HOLY HOTNESS!!!!! Shayne is an independent single mother who had her life turned upside down when Luke disappeared one night 7 years before.
A death in the family brings Shayne home to her hometown in Michigan and the last person she thought she would run into was Luke.
Shayne has a hard time forgiving that awful night when he left but is reminded everyday of her life that he will always be a part of her life.
Take this roller coaster ride of a lifetime to see if love can heal all wounds and allow Shayne and Luke to have their second chance.
I was an emotional wreck throughout the entire book and i couldn't get enough of these two. The secondary characters play a huge role in the lives of our couple and i totally loved the banter between the group of friends. 
Kudos to Kathy and i can not wait until we get to read Adam and Erin's story!!
Now Give me a Corona and my one Luke, or Adam, Or Antonio!!!!!
