Lilly is in debt: her husband died leaving her in trouble, her mother-in-law hates her and goes around vilifying her. Lilly's father is in prison, she has always tried to hide it but her mother-in-law has taken advantage of her weakness and spreads the word among journalists. The only thing that remains to her is a house in Vermont. She abandons her life of luxury in Atlanta to go in the small town of Haley. Here she has a chance to start all over again and a roof over her head. Upon arrival, however, makes a bad discovery: in the home lives there Mac, a nice guy who is handling the restoration of the house and as payment has asked only to live there. Lilly would not want to agree to share the house with this unknown: in the country what would they say? But the house can not face the harsh winter of Vermont without repairs and she has no money to pay them so she is forced to accept. Mac also has a past to forget. Will they really start to live again? Will they do this together?
Mac is a nice guy who did four years in prison. He moved to Haley to start over and make a name as a manufacturer eco friendly. It 's easy to fall in love with him, many women in the country, free or not, they are. Lilly is a woman disappointed, hurt but with great strength and courage: at age 34 has already suffered a lot but really want to start a new life. She's afraid of her feelings for Mac: the beginning trying to protect herselves with the invention of a husband who can arrive at any moment. Will she be able to open her heart to Mac?
I loved the way slowly you have created a relationship between the two protagonists: their first encounters are really funny
The romance is written very well, especially the descriptions of the places, of the food, seems to be there, to feel the flavors and aromas.
I recommend it to those who love romance
"The Truth About Lilly" by Christy McKee is the first novel in "The Shores of Lake Champlain" series. The story follows Lilly Talbot as she tries to rebuild her life after a series of blows. Her relocation to the town of Haley, Vermont is a culture shock to her Southern sensibilities, but even more shocking is the man she finds in the home that she is moving into. Connor 'Mac' MacQueen has his own agenda and, just like Lilly, a painful history to overcome. They each must find a way to get past family issues and go on, the question is whether it will be alone or together.
This fun and exciting contemporary romance has elements of suspense to add to the excellent storyline that explores the parameters and repercussions of guilt and forgiveness. I love the gradual exposition of details and the way the main characters slowly grow into a relationship. The unexpected roommate scenario is a commonly used device but it was so much fun to watch the sparks fly as the apparently diametrically opposed personalities interact, and the north vs. south divide is bridged through food, family, and manners.
The emotional wounds that each character has suffered gives texture to their respective personalities and the deft depiction of their family ties and interactions provide a great contrast to the sensual and sizzling connection that evolves between Lilly and Mac. There are intriguing twists that give glimpses of some of the secondary characters who I suspect will have their own time in the spotlight, and although some seem a little farfetched, they do provide an interesting storyline.
I like the way humor, passion, small-town life, and mystery are combined in this story and I look forward to getting to know more about some of the yummy secondary characters as the series continues. Be forewarned, one may develop a craving for fried chicken or something else to eat while reading this story because the author does such a great job of creating a vivid word portrait that one can almost smell the meals being served!
