From the bestselling author of Lulu’s Café
Sophia Prescott is still mending from the embarrassment of a highly publicized divorce from a pro football player, and the now-single mother is back in Sunset Cove, surrounded by the supporting love of her family and the Sand Queens. Sophia doesn’t think there’s any hope for starting over until an unexpected trip to the pediatrician’s office gives her a second chance after all.
Dr. Weston Sawyer knows all about lives shattering into millions of pieces. His own all but ended when a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and barreled head-on into his pregnant wife’s sedan, killing her instantly and leaving Wes with a soul so wounded that it has refused to heal. He packed up and left swampy southern Alabama for South Carolina with the hope of fading into the sleepy coastal town of Sunset Cove. Instead, feisty brunette Sophia Prescott will have him braving something different and entirely unexpected. If Sophia and Wes can take the leap to give love another try, they just might find that hope has a way of coming back around and weaving into one’s heart.
MENDED HEARTS=BLENDED HEARTS!
In T.I. Lowe’s Sea Glass Castle (Carolina Coast Series Book 3), she writes a beautiful story of two hearts that desperately need mending growing into two hearts that are blending. Sophia Prescott has had her whole world turned upside down. She has gone from being the Trophy Wife of a Professional Football Player to a Single Mom who can barely make ends meet. That is what happens when you are the Victim of Domestic Violence and you decide to press charges against your “Important to the Franchise” Cheating Husband. She was a highly sought after professional in her own right before the Team had her blackballed.
Dr. Weston Sawyer knows about broken hearts and broken dreams as well. While living in South Alabama, his wife and unborn son were killed by a drunk driver. His life was changed in an instant and his heart is heavy. He has found his way to Sunset Cove where he hopes to embrace a new and different way of life.
He gets that all right in the form of one spitfire, Sophia Prescott. There are many forces behind the scenes trying to get the two of them together. They are like oil and water! Yet at some core level, they each recognize that deep hurt, neediness and longing in the other. As all things are in the hands of the Almighty, they find themselves working in the same office and must find a way to make things work. They begin to recognize traits in the other that they greatly appreciate and realize they compliment each other. Before long, they can actually stand to be around each other.
One of my favorite parts of this book that she uses Wes to show a man’s true strength of character and resolve when he is pushed to his limit by Sophia’s ex. He handles himself with dignity and grace and does not allow himself to get drawn into the muck with the lesser man. What a great lesson for all of us! This is a story filled with heartbreaks, heartaches, heart mends and ultimately heart blends.
