All of Me
When her mentor, Blake Townsend, dies and her new boss is the man who lied to Jillian Samuels, she decides to walk away from Houston and accept her inheritance in Salvation, Colorado. She can take the Colorado bar and become a lawyer there. The small, friendly town tucked in the mountains is nothing like Houston.
There is a catch with her inheritance. Tuck Manning, a widower, is living in the house she has inherited. He says Blake gave him the deed to the house a few months earlier. He gave the deed to the elderly lawyer in town to file. But was the new deed ever filed? The lawyer seems to have misplaced the paperwork. Tuck's memories of his wife are tied into the lake house. Jill's new start is tied into the same property.
Neither is ready to release their claim. They become housemates, sharing the house until Tuck's deed can be found and verified. Now they have to deny the attraction they both feel. Both had a vision of the other before they met. What did it mean? Instead they work on creating a friendship during the time she is searching for the paperwork.
Lori Wilde has finished up her Wedding Veil Wishes series with a charming romantic fantasy. All of Me is escapism and fun. Jillian was introduced in the earlier novels of the series as the woman who doesn't believe in magic or the wedding veil her three friends believe helped them. In All of Me the reader learns why Jillian has her opinions and distrust of men and love.
Despite being the fourth in a series, All of Me doesn't need the other three to make it work. It is a stand alone that refers to the earlier books but doesn't rely on them. Jillian is sassy to cover her true feelings of being impossible to love. Tuck is brooding over his wife but at a point that he could put her behind and go forward. He just has to be willing to do that.
Tuck All of Me into your beach bag and have a good time.
