The Ride of Her Life - Reviewed
The only man pragmatic Lilly Hart needs in her life is a six year old. Widowed two years ago, Lilly leaves the shelter of her intrusive in-laws' home to stand on her own and provide for her young son by working for the summer as a cook at Lake Manawa. However, her in-laws find that life utterly unsuitable for their grandson, and when a row ensues, a handsome stranger--who designs roller coasters, of all things--intercedes on her behalf. Still, Lilly is not about to get involved with any man, especially this cocky (though charismatic) gentleman. Little does she know she is about to begin the ride of her life.Filled with delightful characters and the romance of summer, The Ride of Her Life is another supremely entertaining story from the witty Lorna Seilstad. Readers will laugh out loud and sigh contentedly as they spend the summer of 1906 in Lake Manawa.
My Thoughts: What an absolutely fun read! I have read all of the Lake Manawa books and I have to say that The Ride of Her Life is my absolute favorite! Lilly is a young widow with a young son to care for, and let me say he is just darling! You will fall in love with him, and all of the critters he captures!
Lilly moved out of her in-laws home to provide for young Levi, but they don't like how she's doing it and they not only make it hard for her, they start making it hard for Nick, the roller coaster designer who has taken a liking to young Levi and Lilly.
The sweet romance that develops between Nick and Lilly is slow and full of fun. You will feel the breeze on your face and the sand between your toes. Lilly will have the ride of her life and so will you as you read this wonderful book by Lorna! Grab this read and head to your favorite reading spot for a fun and inspirational read!
Available May 2012 from Revell, a division of Baker publishing.
