THE DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
In this tender, emotional addition to the Love From the Heartland trilogy, Longley tackles the issue of veterans struggling to reintegrate into society. She portrays the neighborly, small town of Perfect as a special, healing community nestled on the Ohio River. The setting and the characters are described with such enthusiasm, it’s obvious the author spent many hours trying to capture their essence entirely.
Paige Langford is loving life in Philadelphia with her new job, apartment and boyfriend. She is determined to prove to her father that a woman can make it in a man’s profession because she has plans of taking over his plumbing business. Her dreams are shattered and her heart dented when her boyfriend blackmails her, costing her the job of a lifetime. Embarrassed, she visits her brother Noah’s house in Perfect, Ind., to clear her head. There she meets Ryan Malloy, hired to work for Noah at a custom furniture company. He’s in a world of hurt, a former soldier with survivor’s guilt after five of his friends were killed in an explosion. Paige and Ryan start off on the wrong foot, but they can’t deny their sizzling attraction. Maybe Perfect can be the place for a happily ever after. (MONTLAKE, Apr., 332 pp., $12.95)
