Welcome to another week and another great book. I am happy to share with you a new book by Valerie Clarizio. This is a wonderful love story with a hint of suspense. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Have a wonderful week ahead!
Elizabeth Shaw’s professional life is going according to plan until she meets the handsome widower and his two young children next door. Having shelved her personal life to land her dream job, she disregards her romantic feelings for him. But the forces of nature have other ideas for her.
Joe Antonetti has made his children his main focus since the death of his wife. But his beautiful neighbor becomes an irresistible distraction and has him wondering if he can change her priorities.
Surrendering to their attraction for each other causes another player to step in with his own plan for Elizabeth. One that could not only end the budding romance but her life as well.
Elizabeth has a plan. Her life plan is streamlined and focused solely on her career. But, when she meets her neighbor and his children things begin to change. What she once wanted now seems to be less important, but when the unspeakable happens and she is stalked by that person she must decide what is really important. Should she stick the plan at all costs or just go with what life has in store for her?
I really enjoyed this book. Elizabeth is a very strong but flawed character. She hides behind her plan so that she doesn’t have to face the harsh world. Unfortunately, the harshness finds her and she is forced to face things she never planned for. Woven into this is a sweet love story. Not just a story about a man and a woman but her love for his children also. With the great romance and suspense expertly woven together any reader will find it difficult putting this book down until the last page is turned. If I wasn’t already a fan of Valerie Clarizio, I would be one after reading this book.
