Alissa is starting over in California. Sheís excited to start over and loves her new job. Sheís a travel agent and having the time of her life helping people make their dream vacations come true. When she encounters an exceptionally rude man at her favorite coffee shop, she wonders if all the men in California are as arrogant and bad mannered as he is.
And when he begins to show up everywhere she goes, itís totally crazy. Itís truly chance meetings and random twists of fate that bring them together over and over. When she ends up living in the other half of the duplex he rents, she starts to see another side to Brad. She realizes he isnít arrogant all the time and that he does have a fun and carefree side, too.
When she gets to take a road trip with Brad, she decides a little break in Glenbrooke, Oregon is just what the doctor ordered. But this trip is more ill fated than the Gilliganís Island three-hour tour. Will this trip finish off whatever friendship and relationship Brad & Alissa have found? Can anything ever help each of them get over their past and move on?
Another exciting story from the Glenbrooke Series that will captivate from the first page to the last. Robin Jones Gunn has written a story that is intertwined with the past stories, but still stands alone. Alissa and Brad are an unlikely couple on the surface, but as they learn more about each other they learn they are alike in a lot of ways that matter.
We originally met Brad in the third book (Laurenís brother) and he lives up to his computer-geek reputation here. It is wonderful to get to revisit characters that we have met before while learning more about new people. Lauren is a beautiful woman who works hard to make everyoneís dreams come true. She just doesnít truly believe that her own dreams can ever come true.
This is a heartwarming story about a woman with a severely checkered past learning to forgive herself and trying to learn to love again.
