Product Description

Product Description

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy has enchanted readers with her warm, rich stories of love and family. Fans of Kristin Hannah, Luanne Rice and Susan Wiggs will enjoy this heartwarming story.

The last place Lisa Alvarez expected to find herself was babysitting for her ex-sister-in-law's three rambunctious kids. But when Maggie called her up and begged for time alone, something in Lisa made her say yes. Lisa never expected her handsome ex-husband Nick to show up on the doorstep, walking back into her life, and taking over more than the weekend....

Nick can't believe how Lisa has changed over the years - and how she's stayed the same. His heart still races when her eyes catch his, his pulse pounds when she's near. After tragedy pushed them apart, Nick spent eight years rebuilding his life and his soul. Can he risk losing his heart again, for a second chance at true love?


"A pair of wary, emotionally fragile protagonists, a cast of exceptional secondary characters ... and a multilayered plot that deftly interweaves humor, passion, and a tragedy result in a poignant, heartwrenching, yet heartwarming story that is laced with love." Library Journal

"ONE TRUE LOVE is guaranteed to give readers a few tears and a big smile at the end. A carefully structured, polished novel, where the romance shines. ONE TRUE LOVE is a winner!" Contra Costa Times

I am currently writing a connected family series, The Callaways. The first four books are available with four more to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glad it was free. 22 May 2011
By volone
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The writing was reasonable, although the free Kindle edition was marred by a couple of typos.

I just couldn't empathise with the Lisa character; certainly she'd been through some bad things, but honestly, I've encountered more emotionally mature 3 year-olds and by halfway, she was just irritating me, along with her selfish friend who simply upped and left her children behind.

No, it was readable, but not inspiring, for me at least.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Written, Too Much Kissing! 12 Jun 2011
By Kippy
Format:Kindle Edition
I quite enjoyed this book, particularly the maternal aspects of it. Both Lisa and Maggie seemed very real to me, perhaps because I'm in the middle of toddlerdom right now. Both of these characters grabbed my heart and made me want to find out what happens to them, a sure sign of well-written characters. However, some of the supporting characters, such as Lisa's fiance, were less believable and could have used more fleshing out.

Of course, the storyline is a bit happily-ever-after, but as this is the point of this type of book, it seems a bit churlish to fault it.

The one thing that really got on my nerves, however, was Nick and his kissing. Goodness sakes! You're furious at the woman who walked out on you, and you keep giving her these jaw-dropping, knee-weakening kisses. Why? Sexual attraction and tension I understand, but Nick was certainly over the top, almost schizophrenic at times.

A fun beach read, with well-developed main characters and an interesting, if predictable, plot.

Such a good story and very easy reading. Although you could guess the ending, you just had to find out how they got there. Looking for more of Barbara Freethy books now

3.0 out of 5 stars Sentimental mush 17 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Sorry, it was predicatable mush and I enjoy a chick flick like anyone. Ok for a freebie, can not complain but I did not have to engage and brain cells to get to the inevitable conclusion.

I quite enjoyed the general story line of this book, but I really do think that the ending was all too predictable.

 (What's this?)
"That's the hardest part about being a parent, accepting that you can't protect your children from getting hurt. You can take all the precautions in the world and worry yourself like crazy, but each individual comes to this world with a life to live, no matter how long or how good or how scary it might be. We give our children life, but sometimes we forget that they're the ones who actually have to live that life." &quote;
