Synopsis Courtesy of Amazon:
Can she heal from a tragedy too great to bear?
When Michelle Lancaster flees her hometown of Spirit, Louisiana to spend time at a beach retreat in Driftwood Bay, Florida, she only wants to run from the tremendous pain of a tragedy that caused her perfect life to shatter into pieces.
But on the day when the memories become too much, a man steps into her path on the beach and causes her beloved horse Coco to almost throw her. Not to mention this is the one man Michelle has tried to avoid. But laid-back boat captain and artist Brodie Stevens has his eye on Michelle and soon, he is pursuing her with a strong-willed determination. He too is haunted, but believes that together they can heal each other. Now the driftwood cowboy must convince Michelle it’s possible to hope… and to love again.
An emotional tale about moving forward in life.
It happened in the blink of an eye. The life Michelle Lancaster knew was gone before she knew it. A tragic event that happened a year ago has her leaving Louisiana for the solitude of Driftwood Bay, Florida. Hopefully she can forget and try to move forward. What she didn’t expect was to meet the handsome local artist who wants to be more than friends.
Brodie Stevens lives a simple life. He charters deep sea fishing expeditions and creates art from driftwood he finds along the beach. He can have any woman he wants. But when he sees a beautiful lady riding along the beach on her horse, he needs to know who she is. He needs to know more about her and the reason for the tears in her eyes that she tried to hide. He will do anything to get to know her.
Will Michelle be able to move forward and open up about what causes her grief and fears? Is Brodie patient enough to wait for Michelle to let him in her life?
I loved everything about this book. The characters, the story, the location all worked perfectly together.
