I received a review copy
IT guru Cassie Noble can depend on networks and servers. It’s the people in her life that always let her down. With her fortieth birthday looming, she’d love to find a way to trust and commit to someone.
Eager to work out her problems methodically, Cassie reaches out to her support group. Electrician Keith manages to infiltrate their all-female ranks, infuriating her with his flippant jokes and his all-too laid back attitude. The other women all find him hilarious and she can’t see why. She takes this seriously and he’s doing anything but.
When Cassie needs Keith’s help on a project at her day job, she’s dreading having to work closely with him, however much his hazel eyes make her stop dead in her tracks. As days turn to weeks, he starts to break down her hard exterior. She’s seeing new possibilities. She’s seeing the future…a life that is joyful and bright. A life that includes Keith.
But when a letter from her mother drags her back to the world where Cassie has no control, she shuts down. Can her support group yank her back from that place where hope is lost? And can the man who once drove her crazy be the one who finally doesn’t let her down?
I really enjoy Tracy Krimmer’s novels and was very excited that she asked to send me an advance copy. I have recommended Tracy over and over, and continue to be impressed with her work. Cassie was a great heroine to read about because I thought she was very likeable, relatable, but nowhere near perfect. There were actually several instances I found myself quite upset with her and the decisions she was making. Not upset like, I don’t want to keep reading this, but like, she’s my friend and I need to tell her to get it together. Fast-paced, at times emotional, and leaving readers with plenty to think about, this would be a great addition to your summer reading list.
