Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

They couldn’t be more different...or more completely perfect for each other.

Claire McKenna knows about loss. The bullet wound that ended her promising professional tennis career drove her to make a quiet life for herself working with fabric samples, chatting with her book group, and spending time with her parents in her sleepy coastal Connecticut hometown. Then there was the boyfriend who dumped her to pursue her adventurous childhood friend. Now, Claire’s business has hit a financial snag, but she’s up to the challenge. After all, she can survive anything. At least she thinks so...until her teen crush, Logan, returns to town with his sister, Claire’s traitorous friend.

Photographer Logan Prescott is more playboy than homebody. But his sister’s illness teaches him that there’s more to life than chasing the next thrill. Bent on helping her win Claire’s forgiveness, he turns his charm on Claire and offers her big bucks to renovate his multimillion-dollar New York City condo.

After years of playing it safe, Claire must now take some risks. The payoff could be huge, but if it all falls apart, can her heart recover from another loss?

Critic Reviews

“Beck is in fine form in this small-town romance that’s light on sensuality but thick with emotional entanglements…Beck’s depiction of trauma, loss, friendship, and family resonates deeply. A low-key small-town romance unflinching in its portrayal of the complexities of friendship and family, and the joys and sorrows they bring.” --Kirkus Reviews

Too much poor pitiful me

I like the series, I like the narrator, and overall it was a great story, but I felt like there was way too much poor pitiful me mantra. I liked Claire but at some point I was rolling my eyes at her because she couldn’t let things go. But it was all good. I’ll read the next story too. This is a refreshing author with good writing quality. I’ll keep coming back.

The Promise of Us

Loving this series! This is the second book and takes us deeper into the story of the three Liliac girls who were best friends until one stole the other's boyfriend...but did she really...There is a complicated story there and no one to blame but the man involved who is a sorry excuse for a man who we will get to know more in the next book. Claire is the designer in the business with Steffi and their business needs business. It comes in the form of Logan, Peyton's brother, Peyton as in the boyfiend stealer. He needs his condo in NYC redecorated and wants Claire to do it and is willing to pay her an outrageous price. At the same time he is in hopes of bring her and his sister back together. This is a story of trust, forgiveness, healing, and learning to love again. It was slow going to start but when they found a way it was wonderful to watch their love bloom.

Ok

I really wanted to like this because I lived the first one and am looking forward to third but I didn’t relate to Claire. Yeah she had setbacks but she wasn’t acting like an athlete or her age. She was depressing. On the other hand I loved Logan. He stayed true to himself. They were just oddly mixed as a couple.

Not bad for a romance novel

I read it because it came as a recommendation. It is a sweet story. Lots of trials and happiness. But, it is a romance novel and I have to admit I find that rather boring and it was very predictable. The reader was very good.

Not worth listening to.

Claire is so whiny and annoying listening to this book will depress you. Don't waste your time or money.
