Rating: 4 Cups
Her whole life Lucy Harrison has been afraid, afraid to grow, afraid to change, afraid to dream. She loves her little book store in Cypress Hollow, and would never want to live anywhere else, but there is always that niggling feeling that she could be more.
When he left home after high school, Owen Bancroft was running for his life, and away from an alcoholic and abusive father. Now his mother needs him as she sinks further away with Alzheimer’s, and Owen must make peace with a town that sees him as his father’s son.
Lucy can barely believe her eyes, but her heart knows that what she is seeing is true, Owen is back. A seventeen year olds crush should not last this long, but there is no denying that Owen still makes her shiver from head to toe. Owens’ career as a cop was cut short, and he lives every day with a physical reminder of his limitations, so it nearly kills him to see Lucy put herself in harm’s way. Lucy would love nothing more than to share her life and her love with Owen, but to have him disparage her volunteer work with the fire department is a blow to her heart she cannot ignore.
The knitting icons of Cypress Hollow have left behind a legacy in a town full of strong, independent, and loving young women. Lucy thinks herself fearful, but in reality she is as brave as they come, until it comes to change. Her little comfort zone is quite thoroughly crushed when Owen comes on the scene, and it is like a light blazes to life for Lucy as well as the reader. Owen is the wounded warrior and sexy bad boy that no woman can resist, and when he sets those gorgeous blue eyes on Lucy, you will be lost right alongside her.
