Addison Burke is a successful real estate agent who specializes in high-end closings and who enjoys an elite lifestyle not often afforded someone her age (27). But following a stroke and a recent fall, Addison is forced to hire a caregiver for her estranged mother, Lee Ann; a job Addison chooses not to take on, despite her financial freedom to do so. She hires an agency to fill the position, and to her surprise, they send a man for the job. Logan has somehow managed to keep his act together despite a past that is slowly catching up with him. If he can make enough money over the next couple of months by tending to Lee Ann Burke, he should be able to flee the country before his world comes crashing down around him. But when Lee Ann’s beautiful daughter, Addison, begins to awaken feelings in him that he thought died long ago, he begins to question whether or not fleeing from the past is worth leaving Addison forever. Will Addison let down her guard for love and renew her relationship with her mother? Can Logan face his past, come out unscathed, and act on his feelings for Addison? And why is Lee Ann selling everything she owns on Ebay and Craig’s List?
This is a story of family, love, faith and new beginnings.
A well written novella, Beth has managed to tell the story of the four main character’s without making things seem rushed. Each character was well developed and had an interesting story.
One of my favorite characters is Lee Ann. She has such strength and made a decision to protect Addison’s feelings at all costs.
Letting go of past hurts and learning to forgive is the main theme of this wonderful book by Beth Wiseman.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
