The 1920's are drawing to a close, and feisty Katie O'Connor is the epitome of the new woman -- smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jack fits all of her criteria for a husband -- good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and eating out of her hand. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Luke McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face-to-face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jack? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever?
A story cann't get much better than that, can it? Rich with emotion, description and romance, Ms. Lessman gives us a glimpse into the grown-up characters of Katie O'Connor and Luke McGee - or you might remember him as Cluny McGee - from her outrageously popular Daughters of Boston series. The family saga lives on as Faith, Charity, Lizzie and all the rest pop in and out of the pages of Katie and Luke's journey of discovery, faith and love.
Ms. Lessman polishes her own facet on the diamond of inspirational romance to a brilliant shine. Known for her edgy romances, she's gifted us with another slice of nostalgia sure to live on in our hearts long after the last page turns.
To say the least, I cracked open the book and couldn't put it down until I finished. Romance at its finest!
