First thoughts: Happy sigh! I adored this book, but I absolutely cannot wait for the next in the series. After reading the synopsis, I wondered how in the world things could possibly work out for Lucy and Zac. I enjoyed every bit of the story as the past was gradually unraveled. As with all of Denise Hunter’s stories, the romance was top notch and will make you swoon.
From the Back Cover: She only remembers loving him. But he can’t forget the way she left. Following a concussion, Lucy Lovett can’t remember the last seven months of her life. She doesn’t remember leaving her fiancé Zac Callahan weeks before their wedding or moving to Portland, Maine. And she sure doesn’t remember getting engaged to another man. All she remembers is loving Zac more than life itself. It’s taken Zac months to move on after Lucy left him with no explanation. He’s thrown himself into his family’s farm and his restaurant business in Summer Harbor. Now Lucy’s back, vulnerable, homeless, and still in love with him. She needs his help putting the pieces together, but letting her back into his life is a risk—and the stakes are high. If he follows his heart he’ll win back the love of his life. But if her memory returns he’ll lose her all over again.
Characters: Zac is such a great character. He’s an honorable guy who’s still in love with Lucy, but wary since she broke his heart. Not many guys would go out of their way to help her in that situation, but he does. Lucy earns sympathy as she going through a difficult time, not able to remember the past seven months. She’s got some tough things she went through in the past as well, which shape who she is today.
Recommendation: If you like a lot of kisses in your books, then this is the story for you! While things got a little bit heated at times, it didn’t cross the lines. I’d highly recommend this book. While it can stand alone, I’d suggest reading Falling Like Snowflakes first, just because the series is so good.
Rating: 5/5 stars
