About the Book



Title: Just Let Go  
Author: Courtney Walsh  
Release Date: June 5, 2018  
Genre: Contemporary Romance

For Quinn Collins, buying the flower shop in downtown Harbor Pointe fulfills a childhood dream, but also gives her the chance to stick it to her mom, who owned the store before skipping town twenty years ago and never looking back. Completing much-needed renovations, however, while also competing for a prestigious flower competition with her mother as the head judge, soon has Quinn in over her head. Not that she’d ever ask for help. Luckily, she may not need to. Quinn’s father and his meddling friends find the perfect solution in notorious Olympic skier Grady Benson, who had only planned on passing through the old-fashioned lakeside town. But when a heated confrontation leads to property damage, helping Quinn as a community-service sentence seems like the quickest way out—and the best way to avoid more negative press. Quinn finds Grady reckless and entitled; he thinks she’s uptight and too regimented. Yet as the two begin to hammer and saw, Quinn sees glimpses of the vulnerability behind the bravado, and Grady learns from her passion and determination, qualities he seems to have lost along the way. But when a well-intentioned omission has devastating consequences, Grady finds himself cast out of town—and Quinn’s life—possibly forever. Forced to face the hurt holding her back, Quinn must finally let go or risk missing out on the adventure of a lifetime.

My Thoughts:

Courtney Walsh takes us back to Harbor Pointe the location of her first novel in this series, Just Look Up. In book two we see Ryan and Lane the main characters in Just Look Up, and meet Grady the Olympic skiier and local Harbor Pointe resident Quinn who has just acquired the flower shop.

Both Grady and Quinn have a past that they need to move on from. It's like they are cemented in time and can't get beyond what has happened to them, and seem afraid to try. Quinn is rooted in her small town and Grady is a world traveler. As someone who moved around a lot and has now been in one place for nine years I could definitely identify with Grady's need to move on from the small town of Harbor Pointe. 

Ms. Walsh creates great small towns with charm and fun characters. The cover of this book grabbed me when I saw it for the first time, and the story did not disappoint. I loved the character of Jaden and thought his childlike innocence helped encourage both Grady and Quinn to see things they were missing.

I highly recommend this book.
