Book Description

Book 3 of the #1 Amazon Best-selling Seasons of the Heart Series.

Recurring characters appear in the #1 Amazon Short Story, Here in My Heart, and Let Me Love You Again, the heartwarming second book in the  Echoes of the Heart series releasing April 28th, 2015!

Law Beaumont and Kristen Hemmings have watched each other from a distance for years. But Law, a bartender with a bad-boy past, and Kristen, an assistant principal devoted to helping her community, couldn't seem more different. When they unite to mentor a young foster child and to help Law's troubled daughter through the aftermath of her parents' ugly divorce, their attraction deepens. They face the undeniable connection between them, and a whirlwind of challenges they can only conquer together.

A stirring love story and a candid look at the complexities of divorce, substance abuse, and our country's foster care system, Love on Mimosa Lane is a love song to an entire community, and a novel about the power of family--the family you've been given, the one you've chosen, and the one that can lift you up, even when the world is tearing you down.


Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Lawrence Thacker Beaumont moved with his wife, Libby, and his daughter, Chloe, three years ago to Chandlerville, GA. Recovered alcoholics, Law and Libby are now divorced and share custody of their eight-year-old child, and enigmatic bad boy Law isn't thrilled to be called to Chloe's school by the assistant principal. He has been aware of Kristen Hemmings for quite some time, but with his life focused on Chloe and trying to deal with Libby's backbiting behavior, Law wasn't going to go there. Kristen has kept Law in her sights as well, but her less-than-supportive upbringing has left her gun-shy of relationships. Kristen wants Law to help with one of her students, Fin Robinson, a troubled kid with a talent for soccer living with the Dixons' foster family. Law was the coach of the youth soccer team last year, mostly because Chloe was the star player. Can Kristen convince Law to work with Fin and can Fin encourage Chloe to rejoin the team? Could this plan lead them all to rediscover trust, love, and hope for the future?

Verdict
DeStefano (Christmas on Mimosa Lane; Three Days on Mimosa Lane) covers a number of serious issues—e.g., alcoholism, the foster care system—as she continues to find romance among the inhabitants of this close-knit community. Law and Kristen are thoughtful and insecure protagonists who fight their fears to build a connection with each other and to help two struggling kids figure out who they are and what they want to be. This affecting and sweet story will appeal to most romance fans. —Bette-Lee Fox

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from this book... December 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have no idea why this book got such great reviews. The dialogue was completely unbelievable especially between the H and h. The author made it seem that the H was doing all he could to be the "mature" one in the relationship he had between him and his ex wife but it wasn't. He always engaged in fighting with her instead of just ignoring her! It was maddening! And the ending with the town "siding" with him and his daughter in the middle of a public argument with his ex wife?? Seriously? And the "romance"? The H and h hardly got to know each other at all! They went from looking at each other at the park to having intense conversations to sleeping together. No dating, no getting to know each other, no witty banter. Terrible book!

Some authors have the gift to infuse so much into their stories that it's so much more than just a romance story. This book told several people's stories. All the stories blend into one big heartwarming story that was realistic and tough, but also hopeful and loving too. I wasn't ready to be done when this book ended.

This is the third book in the Seasons of the Heart series. I wouldn't recommend treating it as a standalone as its moderately connected to the one before it though the main story line is not a continuation.

The story opens when Kristen Hemmings the Asst. Principal for the elementary school contacts Law Beaumont and requests a meeting. Law is a recently divorced man with a notorious past as a recovering alcoholic and ex-con. His ex makes his life miserable and he tries to hold it together for the sake of his cherished daughter. He suspects the AP wants to speak with him about how the divorce is affecting Chloe at school. He's worried about that, but there is a large part of him that is worked up by the attraction he feels toward the calm, cool and put together woman who has never looked at him like she believes any of the lies and gossip his ex-wife Libby spreads about him.

Kristen is taking a big chance calling Law to come up to the school, but she thinks her gamble is worth it if it will help Law, Chloe and the bitter and mistrustful new kid, Fin. Okay, so she's strongly attracted to the man and wanted to attempt a connection with him after staring at him playing soccer in the park every week. Law doesn't make it easy on her. She can see that he's got that 'I don't care about anything' attitude going, but she shocks him when she asks him to consider taking up coaching kid's soccer again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complicated romance June 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A lovely love story which although it had a fairly predictable outcome,enabled the characters to take an intriguingly drawn out length of time to arrive there.
