The heroine: Glass artist Lucy Marinn's boyfriend of two years breaks up with her because he's in love with her over-indulged sister. So Lucy not only loses her boyfriend, she also loses her sister and the home they shared.
The hero: Sam Nolan is one of three brothers whose parents were alcoholics. Sam makes no secret of his bachelor attitude and runs from serious involvement with any woman. A serious accident brings Lucy and Sam together. But can they both overcome their distrust?
This book has a tiny bit of magic in it. For me that was a drawback, rather than an asset, but I know a lot of people enjoy a bit of supernatural in their stories. Rainshadow Road is a stand-alone book in the Friday Harbor Series.
When Lucy Marinn was seven years old, three things happened: Her little sister Alice got sick, she was assigned her first science fair project, and she found out that magic existed. More specifically, that she had the power to create magic. And for the rest of her life, Lucy would be aware that the distance between ordinary and extraordinary was only a step, a breath, a heartbeat away.
