Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When Lucy Marinn's boyfriend of two years dumps her for her younger sister, she is devastated. She immerses herself in her glasswork and swears off men, even when one comes to her rescue after a drunk spills his beer on her in a crowded bar. Sam Nolan may be handsome and kind, but he's also pathologically afraid of commitment, having grown up with the town drunks as parents. However, when Lucy is hit by a car and ends up in the hospital, Sam again comes to her rescue and agrees to care for her at his house. Magic is in the air, though--literally--and broken hearts begin to heal.
For readers' advisors: character and story doorways. The book is set in Friday Harbor, Washington. There are a few sex scenes.
