Synopsis:Lucy Marinn is a glass artist living in mystical, beautiful, Friday Harbor, Washington, with a boyfriend, Kevin, who she believes is her soul mate. She has always had a magical side - a gift that finds its way into the breathtaking glasswork she creates - and she struggles to keep it contained. But when Lucy is blindsided by the most bitter kind of betrayal, she questions many of her choices. Her boyfriend leaves her and his new lover is none other than Lucy's own sister. Lucy's bitterness over this devastation is multiplied buy the fact that she has constantly made the wrong choices in her romantic life.
Meanwhile, facing the severe disapproval of Lucy's family, Kevin asks his friend Sam Nolan, a local vineyard owner on the San Juan Island, to "romance" Lucy so that she can more easily move on. But when Sam and Lucy begin to feel real sparks between them, Lucy must ask herself if she can easily risk her heart again.
As Lucy questions her beliefs about love, loyalty, and old patterns, mistakes, and new beginnings, she explores the possibility that some things in life - even after are being broken - can be re-made into something beautiful. And that is the only by discovering who you really are that you can find the one who truly deserves you.
My Review I want to start out by saying Lisa Kleypas is the first Contemporary Romance Author I ever read a book by. She was also the first Historical Romance Author I read a book by. I LOVE her books. I have read so many since then and hers still always stand out to me!
This is book #2 in the Friday Harbor series.
Poor Lucy is heartbroken when she is side-blinded by her boyfriend of 2 years breaking up with her for none other than her sister. Soon she becomes just plain mad at the situation.
Enter Sam Nolan, local vineyard owner, eternal bachelor, and total hunk. He feels a pull toward Lucy but wants to make sure she understands he does NOT do long term commitments.
This is a great Romance about moving on, finding out who you really are, and for Sam being okay with finding the one person he wants to be with for the rest of his life.
I can't wait for more in this series!
