MARRYING DAISY BELLAMY
If readers can handle the shifting timelines of the flashbacks, this complicated tale of love, promise and choice is a finely painted portrait. The dialogue flows with all the emotion one would expect from an author of Wiggs’ caliber.
For most of her adult life, Daisy Bellamy has struggled to choose between the two men who have loved her. Wildly exciting Julian Gastineau will never be happy confined to a small town, despite his love for Daisy. Grounded, steady and family-oriented, Logan O’Donnell is just as steadfast in his love for the pretty photographer and he wants to make a home with her. As she struggles with her choices, the decision is made for her and Daisy’s future is suddenly more complicated than even she had expected. Now a single mom with a thriving business and a growing son, she still yearns for love. When her past and present collide, Daisy has to choose between her safe life and her heart’s desire.
