What is a contemporary romance that centers on the past? An interesting story! Johnnie Alexander does a wonderful job of combining the present with the past to create a complex and heartwarming tale.
Shelby Kincaid is a young widow drawn to her past to recreate an idyllic life for her two daughters. Determined to make her dreams come true, she works out the details of buying her grandparents home from the grandson of her family’s nemisis, another Sullivan.
A.J. Sullivan may carry his grandfather’s name and bear his looks, but he couldn’t be more different than his namesake. Turning his back on the lucrative career his grandfather had planned for him, he’s content to be known as “coach” and teacher at the local high school.
When Shelby buys the old Lassiter farm, he’s more than happy to be rid of it and it’s unpleasant reminders. What he doesn’t expect, is to fall for a woman who equates his name with everything evil in her life.
But it isn’t his name that casts a shadow over Misty Willow. Truths long buried insist on coming to light decades after they’d been buried. Can Shelby and A.J. survive their resurrection?
A well-written story with likable characters, and a charming romance suitable for any age.
