Publisher Description

A mistake. A blessing. A tragedy.
And now, Mandi Evans has made it her goal to fade into anonymity. Once a straight-A student with her choice of colleges, she’s withdrawn into a life that consists of two jobs, an online class, and memories. Crippled by the past, she feels unworthy of a better life – until Lane Whitmore walks into the diner where she works six nights a week.

An urban planner, Lane is looking to revitalize the rundown part of town where Mandi’s hidden herself away. He can’t help but notice this diamond in the rough as well, and what starts as simple good times grows to . . . something more.

With Lane, Mandi feels alive again, and she makes a bold decision – one that could chart her course on a path to redemption. But will keeping her plan a secret from Lane turn out to be the biggest mistake of all?

Outstanding Story of Redemption

"I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily reviewed this book and this is my honest review."

What a beautifully written romantic story about forgiveness, the ability to move past unspeakable tragedies, redemption and the pursuit of happiness.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is willing to forget about everything else for a while. This book has such well developed characters that I found it very hard to put down. I wanted to keep reading to find out if the main character is ever able to forgive the heartbreak of her past and move into the future she so deserves. The interactions between the characters make them easy to relate too. They are true to life characters in real life situations.

I would love to see this author continue Mandi and Lane's story with another book.....Maybe a series is possible?

Something Good

I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.

I enjoyed reading this book. It brought in a sense of real life struggles and trauma yet balanced it out with love and the courage to forgive oneself and start over.
