Goodreads: After losing her child, Ginger Dysart was lost in grief. But since moving to Thunder Point, a small town on the Oregon coast, and with the help of her cousin Ray Anne, Ginger is finally moving forward. Her job at the flower shop is peaceful and fulfilling, and she's excited to start her first big assignment, assisting with the Lacoumette wedding.
In spite of her lasting heartache, Ginger finds herself swept up in the pleasure of the occasion. But the beauty of the Lacoumette farm and the joy of the gregarious family are ruined by an unfortunate encounter with the bride's brother, Matt. Struggling with painful memories of his own recent divorce, Matt makes a drunken spectacle of himself and Ginger when he tries to make a pass at her, forcing Ginger to flee the scene in embarrassment.
But when Matt shows up at the flower shop determined to make amends, what started out as a humiliating first meeting blossoms into something much deeper than either of them expected. Discovering they have a lot in common, they form a solid friendship, though everyone around them worries that Ginger will end up with a broken heart yet again. But if Ginger has the courage to embrace the future, and if Matt can finally learn to let go of the past, there may still be hope for a happy ending.
Kritters Thoughts: The latest Thunder Point book and as I always say they keep getting better and better. Ginger the main character in this book, made a brief appearance in the previous book, but she takes center stage in this one. Matt our other main character also made an appearance in the previous book, but you hear more from him in this one.
Matt and Ginger come across each other in the first chapter at a wedding that Ginger is helping with the flowers and Matt is brother to the bride, but still reeling from the break up of his own marriage and a wedding isn't the place for him to be at the moment.
As with all Robyn Carr books you know there will be a small town and romance, so although the ending can be predicted from page one, Robyn Carr still writes a great plot. I love the ups and downs in the book, it created depth and interest - and of course a great story!
As I keep reading and reviewing books from this series it is getting harder and harder to tell you to start at the beginning, but it is worth it. You don't have to read the books back to back, but I would absolutely suggest starting at the beginning of this series in this small town.
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
