Good, second chance romance
on 4 March 2014
When Luna's best friend Sierra died it tore her life apart. She lost her surrogate family as well as her friend and any chance of a lasting relationship with Angelo, Sierra's brother. Luna has made a fortune in weaving scarves so she has returned to Hope Springs to build an arts centre in a memorial to her friend but Angelo has returned too and the secrets that she holds have not gone away.
There is nothing remarkable or even particularly original in this second chance novel but the author has got the tone right and reveals the secrets cleverly and appropriately during the story. You do have to wonder why Angelo is hanging around so much at first but once you accept that then the developing relationship between the two of them makes perfect sense. The pace of the story is well done and the author is careful not to make the characters cardboard cut out - no real villains here but some shallow and hurting people. The story is about secrets and perceptions - I had worked out what was going to be revealed before it was but the characters' surprise and lack of knowledge just about makes sense.
If you like light romances then then this one is a little more substantial than many of the others in this genre - I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for a review.
