SOMETIMES LOVE IS STRONGER
Lindsey Morales is a beautiful, talented decorator with a popular lifestyle blog. She always knows just how to make things look perfect. But when it comes to her love life, there’s no design trick she can use to cover up the obvious: Her broken heart.
THE SECOND TIME AROUND
Eight years ago, Derek Walsh just wasn’t ready to choose a long-term relationship over his career. But now that the handsome, hot-shot architect has the chance to see Lindsey again—working with her to renovate an old farmhouse—he will do everything he can to repair the damage of the past. But is he finally ready to build a real future…if Lindsey is willing to take him back?
“Sexy and exciting...this is a book that makes falling in love even more fun.”—RT Book Reviews
Michaels (Win Me Over) reunites a couple of college sweethearts in the small Midwestern town of Preston, Mo. Lindsey Morales contributes to the buzzy My Perfect Little Life blog, writing pieces on repurposing and crafting. Lately, the blog's been chronicling the renovation of a historic farm house belonging to her friends Anne and Mike (familiar to readers of Start Me Up). This project forces her to work with architect Derek Walsh, who abruptly broke up with her in college eight years before. Derek allowed familial pressures to separate them, but being around Lindsay reminds him of the chemistry and connection they shared, and he vows to earn her forgiveness. Though this couple has more heartache than Michaels's other love matches, the author doesn't sacrifice her trademark sass, humor, or warmth in this story of rebuilding trust and love.
