Each Thursday we “throwback” to a review from last year so let me know if you’ve read the book or added it to your tbr! Today’s featured book is the second in the Love in Lenox series and book 3 releases in just a few days (take a peek at the first line)!
About the Book
At this point in her life, bravery is not a trait Willa Hart would readily claim. She believes her seven-year-old daughter, Savannah, who never knew her father and successfully tackled chemotherapy, is truly the courageous one. Yet after Willa has a fateful encounter with handsome young doctor Patrick McCade, her outlook—and her view of herself—begins to change.
Patrick, a thrill-seeking world traveler and temporary resident of Lenox, Oregon, sets out to show Willa the value of adventure, even within her tiny town. But just when their friendship shows signs of turning into something more, Patrick’s life as a traveling doctor calls him back.
Will his last days in town signal the end of their journey, or will Patrick and Willa find the courage to transform a single season into a lifetime?
Don’t you just love this gorgeous cover?! Willa’s face to the sky and Patrick’s scruff fit this story perfectly! Nicole Deese has such a rich and vibrant writing style. She didn’t just draw me into the story, I was drawn into the heart of Willa Hart (no pun intended). Her emotions and experiences were so well described that I felt them too. By the time she enters her late twenties, Willa has experienced more than her fair share of sorrow and trials. While her young daughter is ready to embrace adventure after her battle with cancer, Willa is stuck in worry mode and the anxiety is pressing in.
Dr. Patrick McCade is very nearly the opposite of Willa, he is an adventurous world traveler and outdoor enthusiast. He has a few issues of his own to work out but he makes helping Willa his personal mission. Patrick and Willa’s interactions range from humorous blunders and awkward exchanges blossoming into friendship, charged attraction, and everything in between. This book had me staying up late and getting up early, it’s going on my list of all time favorites!
I requested this book through NetGalley in order to read it and offer an honest review.
The opinions expressed are my own. This review was originally posted 4/4/16.
