Hi, reader friends! We’re celebrating with a new-to-me author today and I think y’all are going to enjoy her story!
about the book
Marriage is no picnic. At least the one Vivian Emerson shared with her late husband hadn’t been. Unfortunately, the devastation Craig had brought into her life didn’t ended with his death. Not only did he leave Vivian without closure, he had to go and die in a way that made her the talk of the whole state of South Carolina and beyond. Now her daughter wants nothing to do with her because of him. She would just stick with the single life from now on, thank you very much.
For the last fourteen years since the death of his wife, Bo Manning never even considered wanting another woman in his life. That is until he comes to the rescue of a certain woman with haunting, jade green eyes. Despite Vivian’s resolve not to give her heart to another man, Bo sets out to patiently woo her into the loving relationship he is offering.
Irresistibly Yours reveals God’s fervent effectual call in the form of a classic romance.
Irresistibly Yours is an irresistibly delicious story! While most contemporary romances feature couples in their mid-twenties or thirties, it is refreshing and exciting to come upon a gem like this one with a vibrant prospective “second-chance at love” couple.
Vivian Emerson has been through the wringer thanks to her late husband and grief-stricken daughter. After her first year of sorrow and grief, she effectively, although tentatively, takes life by the horns and blazes her own trail alone. Bo Manning is a faithful, mister steady and wholly dedicated to his family. He is a pillar of strength and natural-born protector and quite attractive at that.
Don’t you just love it when a book grabs your attention from page one?! The Walden Beach community is a sweet little resort town and oh so appealing. This romance is full of humor, healing, and chivalrous wooing. I’m looking forward to more stories from this author!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
Craig Emerson would turn over in his grave if he could see her now. Rolling down Highway 22 toward Myrtle Beach, windows down, radio blaring a classic rock station, the wind blowing through her short hair, with a three-inch wedge sandal pressing down on the accelerator. No one—not even his wife—ever drove his orange and black, 1970 Plymouth GTX.
“Craig, are you seeing this?” Vivian Emerson had been talking to her husband this way ever since his death almost a year ago. After this weekend, she decided these little talks would come to an end. There had been plenty of things for her to get off her chest—things she had wanted to say while he was alive, but he would never listen.
So many times in the past year, she would go out to the garage, sit in Craig’s car, and pour her heart out. Sometimes she would talk quietly while tears streamed down her face, and other times she would yell. But this was the first time she’d actually driven his car. So far, her one-sided conversations on this trip had been backed with laughter. This trip to the beach would be her last act of letting go. She was ready.
