Can two broken hearts become one? Attorney Jillian Samuels doesn't believe in true love and never, ever wished for happily ever after. But when a searing betrayal leaves her jobless and heartbroken, a newly inherited cottage in Salvation, Colorado, seems to offer a fresh start. What she finds when she arrives shocks her: the most gorgeous and infuriating man she's ever met is living in her home! Tuck Manning was a gifted architect who left a skyrocketing career to care for his dying wife. But the life he's made for himself in this quiet town is turned upside down when Jillian appears on his doorstep. Tuck won't go without a fight, and the two resolve to live as roommates until they can untangle who owns the cottage. Yet as Tuck and Jillian's days--and nights--heat up, they realize more than property rights are at stake...and that sometimes, salvation comes when you least expect it.

I think Jillian had it right. The perfect way to start fresh would be a quaint little cottage in a quiet town, or perhaps a ranch or mountain home away from it all.

This sounds like a new Sandra Bullock (Kate Hudson?) movie in the making! As for where to make a new start, if the town of "Salvation" doesn't work, what would?!!! (Probably not a good idea to go to "Truth or Consequences" in New Mexico!)

I would do the same as Jillian, but instead of Colorado, I'd go to Massachusetts(because of the beaches).

I follow.

Cindy said...

+1 - I think that Jillian picked the perfect spot! I was thinking the perfect place would be a small, secuded town in Colorado and that is where she picked. I think a great place to start over would be a small town in a place that has great scenery, mountains, clear streams or lakes, and snow. My second choice would be a secuded, quiet area that has nice beaches and an ocean - but not a deserted island!

+2 - I am already a follower and I love your blog!

If I were her I'd fly off to some tropical island and have some fun.

Caffey said...

My post disappeared! Trying again.

+1 Oh I would start over and go someplace that I've always wanted to visit and get a fresh start. I know that way I'd be doing something extra by going somewhere I've always wanted to and that would motivate me. (But I am happy with my soon 26 anniversary!
+2 I've been your Google friend and love it here! I love to visit each day if I can. Its great to chat with someone who has alot of the same read choices!

Please enter me for this giveaway. My fresh start is a big fantasy. I'd move to a small town in Scotland. A small cottage near the sea. I'd love to hear the waves pounding on the rocks. I also need a fireplace so I can read by it. A handsome Scottish man comes to deliver and stack my wood. I thank him with some tea and scones or something stronger if he'd like. I also hear that he can build book shelves. I'll need to hire him for that.
Thank you.

Renee G said...

I think she's right also. I would pick a relatively small town where no one knows me. I'm not sure where, but maybe Bozeman MT or Caldwell ID.

Gosh, I've never thought about that. A small town somewhere does sound like a nice idea. Maybe somewhere in Nova Scotia.

If I were Jillian, I'd hunker down right there by Tuck!

If I were to start over I would move to a place called Camrose, alta. It is smaller, I know no one at all.

I would go to Italy and just... make my start there.

Neas Nuttiness said...

Well, I have kids in Colorado and Wyoming, and Alabama, and Arizona, and Florida...any one these places would be just fine for a new start. But if I'm to be totally honest...Colorado is sooooooooo beautiful, and different from where I was raised (Florida) - that I would probably like to go there!


Neas Nuttiness said...

I follow;-)


Kristen said...

I would go up to my cottage to start over so very similar to Jillian's choice.

In your review, you said that All Of Me was the fourth book in the Wedding Veil Wishes series.

Pam said...

Sounds like a good book. Singapore provided me with a fresh start but I've always thought a little town in the south of France could be fun... Following you already in google...

+5 Great review, I really enjoyed the previous 3 Wedding Veil Wishes novels and think that you should definitely go back and read them!

Sue W. said...

If I were Jillian I would have to stay put here at my beautiful home on Lake Gaston in NC. I've lived in many places throughout the world but this is the best.

I am all ready a loyal follower.

Cindy said...

+5 I read your review and loved it! Now I want to win a copy of this book more than ever. I learned from your review that Jillian moves to Colorado from Houston, Texas. Since I live in Texas, that caught my eye. Also, I think it is interesting that Blake deeded the cottage to Tuck and then left the cottage to Jillian as an inheritance. No wonder both thought they owned the cottage!

Like Jillian I would search out a small town to re-orient myself=)
