This was a new author for me. The title and book blurb didn’t quite cover what full extent of the book was about.
She has a perfect plan.
A new city. A new job. New acquaintances.
And most importantly: life without a man!
Will he disrupt her plan?

The beginning of this book is a dream. Lana is dreaming of her past, which tinges her anxiety of the future. You don’t know everything at first, but you get a hint that her past is an unpleasant one that is keeping her from living life to its fullest.
Meeting David was an accident, happening at the shoe store Lana owns. She is hesitant around him, around everyone really, and although the attraction is there it isn’t certain anything will come of it. As the story unfolds, David keeps appearing and finally the two give in to their attraction.
There’s a lot to be said for the storyline of this book. It addresses an issue faced by many women throughout the world, and does so in a positive way. It also presents interesting characters who have true flaws and must learn how to live with those flaws and how they affect others. The story gives some twists and turns as it continues, and you begin to learn some of the secrets and intricacies created amongst the characters and plot.
That being said, there were a few things that I didn’t enjoy. Parts of the story seem drawn out. For me, it seemed the parts I was least interested in often lasted the longest. This is the author’s choice, and I support that, but for me it didn’t work. Another issue for me was the language. It wasn’t inappropriate or foul language at all! I felt that some of the dialogue and sentence structure didn’t flow as easily for me, as it has with other novels. Some of the dialogue felt a little cheesy, and I couldn’t imagine someone really saying some of the lines and being taken seriously. Again, this is simply a choice by the author and probably a difference in our colloquial, and personal, word choices.
Overall a good story. If you like romance, caring men, and crazy families, you will mostly likely enjoy this story.
