Forever After

Forever After is another one of my picks for “perfect summer vacation read”!  I enjoyed this story and found it light hearted, sweet and very easy to get into.   If you enjoy series books that overlap and share characters, this may be one to add to your bookshelves.

Second book in the Hanover Falls series; this novel combines a beautiful love story with some suspense and action.  One of the reasons I enjoyed this book so much is that it wasn’t overly “deep” or highly suspenseful.  This book continues the story of Jenna Morgan, Lucas Vermontez, and others who were affected by a tragic fire in the first book, Almost Forever.

I did not read the first book in the series but I had no trouble following along with the storyline and picking up with Jenna and Lucas, the main characters in this story.   Lucas is struggling with his physical limitations after being injured by the same fire that killed his father and best friend.  He is frustrated and anxious to get back to his job of being a fire fighter and feels very self-conscious about his injuries.

Jenna, who has been widowed due to the fire, is struggling financially and is forced to admit to her in-laws that she’s losing her home.  After living way beyond her means trying to keep up with the Joneses, Jenna finds herself at her in-law’s mercy and has to move in with them.

When Jenna and Lucas’s paths cross, the timing couldn’t be worse.  Neither of them are in a good place and yet the sparks fly and they both begin having feelings for each other.  Of course it’s complicated because Jenna just happens to be the widow of Lucas’s good friend who lost his life in the fire and they both have issues with what people might think.

The third book in this series (After All) is scheduled for April of 2012.  It’s going to be a long wait for those of us anxious to read Deborah’s next title in this series!

From The Back Of The Book:

Lucas Vermontez was a proud firefighter like his father. Now, not only has he lost his father and his best friend, Zach, in the fire at the Grove Street Homeless Shelter, but the devoted rookie can no longer do the work he loves after being crippled in the tragic event. When friendship with his buddy's beautiful widow turns into more, he wonders what he could possibly offer Jenna.

Jenna Morgan is trying to grieve her husband's death like a proper widow, but the truth is, she never really loved Zach. His death feels more like a relief to her. But that relief is short-lived when she loses her home and the financial support of her in-laws. Now the secrets of her past threaten to destroy her future.
