I received a review copy
Chelsea Wyatt, a single mom trying to build a life for her and her son, is sick of the body she sees in the mirror. A daily diet of Cookie Crisp cereal is not doing wonders for her mood or her figure, and it’s time for a change. Setting out to get fit, she commits herself to a daily walking plan, forcing herself to give up her all-sugar and carb diet, a difficult task at her donut obsessed job.
But her plan goes sideways when a stumble on the ice puts her in the arms of Jay, an attractive young man out on a run. They grab coffee together, and Chelsea finds herself thinking about him long after their short meeting. The thought of dating again hadn’t crossed her mind in years, and she doesn’t even know if Jay is available, or if he would be interested in her despite her unfit body.
Just when she has a handle on her new routine, her past catches up with her, throwing her blossoming relationship with Jay and the rest of her life into chaos. Can Chelsea hold onto the people she loves most, or will a wrong turn set her up for failure?
This is book 2 of the Pastime Pursuits series, and can be read as a stand-alone novel.
This is the second book I’ve read by Tracy Krimmer (I recently reviewed Geocaching as well) and I have absolutely loved both! In this book we follow Chelsea, and her quest to not only better herself, but to find love. This is hard for her because she is a single mother, and the reason behind her split with her kind of boyfriend/father of her son really got under my skin. That guy was all kinds of bad news, and it was hard to see the blinders go on Chelsea. When he came back into Chelsea’s life, I definitely wanted to throw something. That guy! But Jay was a great character to read about, even though I was a little bummed he seemed to give up on Chelsea so quickly. But overall, this book was fast-paced, well-written, and fun to read. I’m having a blast with Tracy’s books!
