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, the heartwarming introduction to the new  Echoes of the Heart series!

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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! January 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Kristen Hemmings, the principal of Chandler Elementary has a student that needs a mentor. She has been watching Law from afar for a while now and thinks that he would be perfect for the task. Law Beaumont is a good guy with a shady past who is trying to help his daughter cope with the aftermath of a nasty divorce while just trying to keep his head above water. When Kristen calls on him for help, they both notice the connection. Together they unite to help the kids. Will they be able to help each other too?
Mimosa Lane is a beautiful place with amazing families. I haven't met one family yet that I didn't like. These characters have been through many real life issues and come out united as a community.
This story is about community, friendship, and the power of love and family.
Love on Mimosa Lane was a beautiful story with characters so true to life you feel like you know them and a community everyone wishes they were lucky enough to live in.
Ms. DeStefano did it again.. I can't wait to see who she introduces me to next!

4.0 out of 5 stars Love on Mimosa Lane January 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Love on Mimosa Lane is a heartwarming story of love, family and friendship. This latest installment in Anna DeStafano’s extremely popular Seasons of the Heart series is sure to be a hit with old and new fans of the series.

Chandlerville is a tight-night community where the residents look out for one another. So when assistant principal Kristen Hemmings needs help with one of her new students, she is quick to ask Law Beaumont to help mentor the young man. Law is no stranger to trouble and while he is at first hesitant to become involved, he soon sees an opportunity to not only help Fin Robinson, but his young daughter Chloe as well.

Both Law and Kristen have complicated family histories that continue to plague them even though they are now adults. They each tend to keep an emotional distance and while Law has been married, Kristen ends her relationships long before they get serious. Kristen’s issues are fairly easy to overcome whereas Law’s are going to take a lot of work and most of the novel to fully resolve.

Law thought his problems with his wife Libby would end once they were divorced. Unfortunately Libby is bitter, vindictive and out to ruin not only his reputation, but his relationships too. Their daughter Chloe is caught in the middle until Law finally starts to listen some of the advice from his friends and his brother, Dan and begins to take control of his life.

All of the characters in Love on Mimosa Lane have a lot of emotional baggage and some of them are dealing with some pretty serious problems. Law and Libby have substance abuse issues, both in the past and present, and Law has a prison record. Chloe is caught between doing what she wants and trying to please her mother.

Love series that have several books and keep the same characters throughout the series. Thoroughly enjoy a book where the characters grow with each line in print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt read July 12, 2014
By Eileen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
She gets me every time. She takes tough subjects and entwined them into s romance and a struggle for every day people. Nothing extraordinary. The writing is superb and the emotions she draws on are real. Kristin, Law and Chloe all had it rough learning to trust and love. Fin was in foster care and had the sane struggles. Thankfully a little thing called soccer helped paved the way.
