I am not a big romance reader. Every now and then a book comes along that catches me and carries me along for the ride. This is one of those books. The romance was not rushed which is what I hate about most romance books. Three years after the main character Gracelynn lost her husband, her friends decide she must get back into the game of life. The only way to do that is to force her to take a vacation, a four week vacation. Gracelynn's life changes when she meets Giovanni. He literally runs into her. They each recognize that they are beginning to have feelings for each other. Both of them have baggage from losing their spouses. This is where the healing begins as well as the romance. I think if this had been one of those boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall head over heels in love or lust. I probably would have put the book down. It wasn't. I found it quite ironic that the name of the town is New Hope. It is like an underlying message of their life. They have new hope for their life and relationships. I would definitely recommend this to those who love romance novels, and especially those who are not real sure they enjoy romance novels. This is one they will love.
