Lucy Marinn is a glass artist living in mystical, beautiful, Friday Harbor, Washington. She is stunned and blindsided by the most bitter kind of betrayal: her fiancé Kevin has left her. His new lover is Lucy's own sister. Lucy's bitterness over being dumped is multiplied by the fact that she has constantly made the wrong choices in her romantic life. Facing the severe disapproval of Lucy's parents, Kevin asks his friend Sam Nolan, a local vineyard owner on San Juan Island, to "romance" Lucy and hopefully loosen her up and get her over her anger. Complications ensue when Sam and Lucy begin to fall in love, Kevin has second thoughts, and Lucy discovers that the new relationship in her life began under false pretenses. Questions about love, loyalty, old patterns, mistakes, and new beginnings are explored as Lucy learns that some things in life - even after being broken - can be made into something new and beautiful.

This is book 2 in Lisa Kleypas' Friday Harbor contemporary series.
Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor was book 1 and that was released in October of 2010. So needlessly to say I have been waiting very patiently for this book to be released. Lisa Kleypas is one of my absolute favorite authors! She can write historical or contemporary it doesn't matter they are all great!

Happy Reading
