Who knew fate could twist a tragedy into a second chance at love?
Samantha Winters lives her life the way a good accountant should—measured, deliberate, and safe. After watching her father die in a tragic skiing accident, she decided never to allow risk into her life again. But she didn’t count on falling for Nick Chastain, who embodies everything she doesn’t want in her safely constructed world.
Against Samantha’s warnings, Nick plans a dangerous kayaking trip over spring break. Furious that he’s so careless with his life, she ends their fledgling relationship with harsh words.
Two years later, Samantha is desperately in need of a change. When she learns her grandmother has had an accident and is in need of a caretaker, Samantha quickly packs her bags and heads to Thunder Creek, Idaho. But nothing could prepare her for the surprise awaiting her in her grandmother’s hospital room . . . Nick.
With the charming backdrop of small-town friends, beloved cousins, and a whole church congregation rooting for them, can they set aside the disastrous ending of their first try at love? Has Nick changed enough to meet Samantha in the middle—and can she realize that a risk in love might be worth taking?
Robin Lee Hatcher has a way with words! She lures her readers in and sucks them so deep into the story that it’s hard to put the book down, even just for a moment. I fell in love from very beginning. It’s well written, developed, and unpredictable. The story offers a steady pace and several twists. The characters are all well developed and relatable. I love how Hatcher weaves the lives of the characters together in a way that appears natural and without force.
Samantha is my absolute favorite character ever. She’s relatable, honest, and well developed. She lives life on the safe side and without risk. Nick on the other hand is a strong character and a risk taker. He grabs life by the horns and takes off running. I love the relationship between the two. It’s so natural. This is a cheer worthy book that offers a roller coaster of emotions. This was a powerful and captivating read that I would highly recommend to others. I can’t wait to read more from Hatcher.
