Image of Just Let Go

A flower-store owner meets a self-destructive Olympic skier in this well thought out, down-to-earth, realistic second book in the Harbor Pointe series. Walsh doesn't just write the typical romance novel, where there are two main characters who fall in love, break up over something and then make up. She writes a totally relatable story that makes you feel for all of the characters, sometimes laughing and sometimes crying along with them. If you read book one, Just Look Up, you will recognize some characters that make a reappearance. However, this book can be read as a standalone, as Walsh does wonders with her character development details. Conflict begins right from the start, and past hurts get in the way of future relationships. Come along on this original, romantic and emotional adventure in the small town of Harbor Pointe, Michigan.

The flower shop has been in Quinn Collins' blood since she was born. Her earliest memories consist of her, her sister and her mother dancing around her mother's flower shop. The shop is now hers, and her next goal is to catch her mother’s eye at the upcoming floral exposé. She hasn’t seen or heard from her mother since she left Harbor Pointe twenty years ago without a word. Grady Benson represents everything Quinn does not want in her life. She is determined and focused and does not have time for anyone or anything to get in the way of her goals. The last thing she wants is help with her shop from someone who causes havoc wherever he goes, but that is exactly what happens when he gets in trouble and encounters Quinn's dad, the sheriff, and his longtime friend, Judge. Grady could possibly be the best thing to ever happen to her, if she can just let go of past hurts and let him past her defensive walls. (TYNDALE HOUSE, Jun., 416 pp., $14.99)
