Book Description

All Benjamin Quincy wants is to make a stable home for his ten year old daughter in the town he grew up in and left in bitter disappointment. Young and hot headed, he made a mistake. Eleven years later, he’s a divorced, single dad with a troubled child, and a lot to make up for.

Sydney Marshall has finally snagged the perfect job at a coveted travel magazine in New York. Does she care that her ex has returned to the tiny town of Rosewood with a precious daughter who’s not hers? Does it matter that every time he comes near, her heat flutters madly like in the old days? No! Her bags are packed; plane tickets are stashed in her carry on bag; the adventure of a lifetime is about to begin.

There’s only one problem. Life and Rosewood have a penchant for interfering in the best laid plans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun characters and lots to love April 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Susan Lute does it again with a fun book all about the choices between love and career. But what I love most about this particular story is the character of the daughter who is both fragile and funny, and makes the main characters that much more real in their decisions and lives. Susan is great at dialogue and description so that as a reader you feel like you understand the characters and their setting. A fun read by a fun author.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT AUTHOR October 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a story that really delivers the promises of the cover--family, community, a charming town and a romance worth fighting for. Susan Lute packs quite a punch with her prose--it can be positively lyrical--and her dialogue is spot on. The young daughter leaps off the page and into your heart. What I liked best, though, is Lute's obvious love of human beings, their foibles, struggles and what she sees as their entitlement to their hopes and dreams. That's an extra gift she gives the reader. Her books are romance and women's fiction, combined. Looking forward to much more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great small town story June 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Sydney Marshall was on her way to finally realizing her dream, when her boss and good friend has a stroke. Suddenly she finds herself being guilted into helping the new co-owner of the town newspaper and face to face with the boy she loved but pushed away.

Benjamin Quincy returns to his hometown in hopes of creating a happy, stable home for his ten year old daughter. She hasn't had much of a home life while living with her mother and he hopes to change that. The only thing that doesn't fit into his plans is learning his high school sweetheart is still in town. Even worse is the feelings she rekindles in him and the attachment his daughter forms.

I really enjoyed this story. Coming from a small town, I could totally sympathize with Sydney's need to move to a big city and hope that whatever fantastic was going to happen to your life happened there. She was a woman who, for years, put everyone else's needs in front of her own and was looking forward to thinking about just herself. Of course, Ben coming back home threw her for a loop, but she stood strong with her conviction and was absolutely positive that leaving for New York City was going to bring her everything she ever wanted in life, even if the one thing she really wanted to was Ben.

I adored Ben. I loved how he wanted to try and make the type of home he had for his daughter. He wanted her to know she was the most important woman in his life. Any parent could appreciate the effort he made to give her what he felt was the ideal home life. But I could also appreciate his apprehensiveness at working with Sydney and then ultimately his goal to somehow work out a relationship with her.

More About the Author

A multi-published traditional and Indie author. Susan Lute's debut novel, Oops...We're Married? was a Reader's Choice nominee and Holt Medallion Finalist. She is first and foremost a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and dreamer. She is an ardent student of human nature, and loves ancient history and myth.

She doesn't remember thinking... someday I'll grow up to be a writer. That didn't come until much later, after her first publication - a little known article for Listen Magazine titled, Jessie's Choice.

Other things you should know - she is the oldest child of a military family; she's traveled far, but has never been to Hawaii, Paris, or Crete, an omission she hopes to correct soon; her favorite places in the whole world are New York City, Sedona (Arizona), Ouray (Colorado), and Bath (England).

These days, she writes whenever she can. In between she works as a Registered Nurse, reads, gardens, takes black-and-white photos, travels, and remodels her house. Currently she is working on the second novel in her Dragonkind Chronicles, and dreaming up a new urban fantasy.
