A New Hope by Robyn Carr (Book Review)

A Thunder Point Novel #8
July 2015

After losing her child, Ginger Dysart was lost in grief. But since moving to Thunder Point, a small town on the Oregon coast, Ginger is finally moving forward. Her job at the flower shop is peaceful and fulfilling, and she’s excited to be assisting with the Lacoumette wedding.

In spite of her lasting heartache, Ginger is swept up in the pleasure of the occasion. But the beauty of the Lacoumette farm and the joy of the gregarious family are ruined by an unfortunate encounter with the bride’s brother, Matt. Struggling with painful memories of his own, Matt makes a drunken spectacle of himself when he tries to make a pass at Ginger, forcing her to flee the scene in embarrassment.

But when Matt shows up at the flower shop determined to make amends, what started out as a humiliating first meeting blossoms into something much deeper than either of them expected. Everyone around them worries that Ginger will end up with a broken heart yet again. But if Ginger has the courage to embrace the future, and if Matt can finally learn to let go of the past, there may still be hope for a happy ending.

—–> REVIEW <—–
Ginger and Matt’s blooming romance reminded me of the court-shipping ways back in the years my parents met. They talked, built a friendship, a solid foundation and through it, love developed. A strong love. 

People back then, and rarely now, take the time to really get to know someone before they have sex. Most people are in a rush. 

“A New Hope” showed the value of waiting; letting things grow slowly and naturally. For real love, there are no time limits. No plans. Matt and Ginger found their own pace, helped each other deal with their heartaches and, as a result, they became stronger. Together. 

This was truly a perfect love story with two not so perfect individuals.
