The Ride of Her Life by Lorna Seilstad
Back Cover: The only man pragmatic Lilly Hart needs in her life is her six-year-old. Widowed for three years, Lily has decided to leave the home of her intrusive in-laws to stand on her own. However, her in-laws find her new life as a cook at Lake Manawa utterly unsuitable for their grandson. When an argument ensues, a handsome stranger - who designs roller coasters, of all things - intercedes on her behalf. But Lilly is not about to get involved with any man, especially this cocky gentleman. Little does she know she is about to begin the ride of her life.
Filled with the sweet romance of summer, The Ride of Her Life will have you laughing out loud and sighing contentedly as you spend the summer of 1906 at Lake Manawa.
Review: The is the second novel I have ready by Lorna Seilstad and I expected to be entertained - I was not disappointed. Light and funny with the occasional bout of seriousness this novel intertwines the lives to two completely, utterly, and seemingly non-fusible people.
Lilly is so tenaciously stubborn and overprotective that, at times, it made me want to reach through the pages and throttle her (just a little). Her heart has a mighty high wall built up around it but fortunately for Lilly, the daring and not-so-easily dissuaded Nick is a master at conquering challenges. Lilly is bound and determined to keep Nick at arm's length and to battle her wicked in-laws alone ...thank-you very much!... but Nick has other plans.
This was the perfect novel for a lazy, sunny Sunday afternoon. A great, must-read for this summer!
