A New Hope

Summary from 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.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I don’t read all of Robyn’s books- I’ve read a few of the Thunder Point, a couple of her standalone ones- and that’s about all. I find I reach for a Robyn Carr book, though, when I just want to read- no trying to guess the bad guy, find the twist, do a ton of thinking- just when I want to read and be entertained. Robyn Carr is perfect for those moments. Continue reading

Tiny Little Thing

Tiny (real name Christina) is on the brink for  good things. Married to a man with high political aspirations, Tiny- with her perfect ways and desire to show a perfect life, could be the best politician’s wife.

Tiny, on the outside, is the type of woman to strive to be. Poised, accomplished, beautiful- she is the type of woman that the words “lady of the house” are designed to describe.

However, on the inside….

Tiny is a mess. She questions her future, she thinks about events that happened 2 years earlier- and she wonders about her marriage.  Continue reading
