Imagine the worst day of your life.
Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?
Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.
So I hid.
Nine months later and I'm getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy. Healing is that simple, right? Wrong.
Note: New Point is the start of a standalone series with connected characters, but independent story lines.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
This was a sweet little story about a girl, Zoe, building herself anew after a life-threatening situation left her a shadow of her former self. After months of steady recovery, she decides to move to the family lake home in small town New Point. When she feels the time has arrived to start working again and she gets a job in the library there.
Miles is a business owner and neighbor to the lovely Zoe. He is immediately taken by her and sets on a path of conquest. I enjoyed seeing Zoe’s path of self-discovery. I liked how it was transmitted that sometimes being self-sufficient is not enough and we have to learn to ask and accept help. Their relationship builds slowly as they get over a few bumps and thrive together.
This story was well paced and engaging. It was a wee bit angsty but nothing bad. I got angry with Miles in more than one occasion when his first instinct was to leave Zoe hanging. The whole hype around Zoe’s past was a bit OTT for the circumstance itself in my opinion… I was expecting something way more dramatic by the point we learn all that happened to her.
There were a few editing issues, and this bugged me a bit, but it wasn’t so awful as to interfere with the reading and general enjoyment of the story.
