When Lucy’s secret is unearthed, her world begins to crumble. But it may be the best thing that has ever happened to her.
Lucy Alling makes a living selling rare books, often taking suspicious measures to reach her goals. When her unorthodox methods are discovered, Lucy’s secret ruins her relationship with her boss and her boyfriend James—leaving Lucy in a heap of hurt, and trouble. Something has to change; she has to change.
Now Lucy must go back into her past in order to move forward. And while it may hold mistakes and regrets, she will prevail—if only she can step into the life that’s been waiting for her all along.
Lucy makes errors and mistakes early on in this book as is revealed from the back cover, but as you live through them with her, you discover life lessons about yourself as well. This is not a typical romance where boy meets girl, there is some sort of misunderstanding, all is fixed by the end of the book and they live happily every after. This is a bit more real life than that, but in a deeper raw way. You will find a real love demonstrated more fully here, as each layer is stripped away. Ms. Reay does a wonderful job of giving a piece of classic, modern literature for book lovers.
You can purchase it in many book sellers, or it is available on Amazon.
