SURPRISED BY LOVE
Shy and unattractive as a child, Megan McClare has always been teased by her classmates. But when she returns home from her senior year in Paris, the wallflower has suddenly blossomed into a beauty. With ambitions to become a lawyer or doctor, Megan accepts an internship at the district attorney's office only to discover that she will be working with Devin Caldwell, a boy who mercilessly mocked her at school--and with whom she was hopelessly enamored. She turns to her dear friend Bram Hughes for support and advice. But Bram's vision is clouded by his sudden unwelcome attraction to a girl he had always thought of as a kid sister. He advises forgiveness, but can he forgive himself for pushing the woman he loves into the arms of another man?
Sweet torture. Lessman knows how to deliver a page-turning read filled with love and laughter and plenty of on-the-edge-of-your-seat drama. I savored every blessed word. And had a bit of a cry at the end because this is the last book in the Heart of San Francisco series.
This author has a special way of creating vibrant, true-to-life characters. I love the McClares. The banter and teasing between the siblings. The way they stick by one another when times get tough. They are multidimensional people that have a permanent place in my heart. And I love the unhurried feel as the story unfolds. Like we have all the time in the world to live every precious second right along with Meg and Bram.
And, oh my goodness what a complicated love story! I wouldn't expect anything less from this author though. So I gritted my teeth and plowed through the angsty bits (well, more than bits) and swooned over the romantic ones. And there's a bonus second love story within these pages as well. That one about tore my heart out. I felt pulverized by the end.
Another Lessman classic not to be missed.
