Publisher's Summary

Katherine Barclift had it all: the perfect job, the perfect car, and what she thought was the perfect marriage. But when her entire world collapses in one stomach-churning instant, she hits the road and keeps driving until that so-called "perfect life" is just a dot in her rearview mirror.
A chance encounter leads her to make a pit stop in Boot Creek, a drowsy little North Carolina town where she can call herself Katy, soak up the peace and quiet...and drink in the bluer-than-blue eyes of Derek Hansen, a local doctor still wrestling with his own painful past. Both Katy and Derek are wary about giving romance another shot, but they can't deny the intense attraction between them. And if being in Boot Creek has taught them anything, it's to take life as it comes and never pass up a chance at true love...no matter how wounded your heart may be.

the Narrator was awful and the story lacked depth

The Narrator was awful and the story lacked depth . The story story started out well but after the blackberry festival it was like the author gave up or had something else she focused on

The Narrator was awful.

Life After Perfect....

A very moving and passionate story.
I thought it would just be a nice easy fluffy, read to take me through Hurricane Matthew, but it turned out to be a lot more.

The story dealt with some very heavy topics such as infidelity, cancer, hospice care and the various stages of grief. But the concepts and emotions involved were so skillfully portrayed that the reader was not bogged down by the experience.

The voice of the male lead might not have been as we would imagined it, but all the voices were distinct and consistent. The narrator captured the mood and tone of each character's experience perfectly. This was a challenge in itself because there were quiet a number of characters.

It was also pure happenstance, that I was going through a real life Hurricane while reading about a possible coming storm in the story line.
I was totally distracted from the weather outside, as I rode out the storms of all the emotions pouring from each page.

A very emotionally satisfying read.
