I met Wyatt Clark in Summer of Two Wishes and although I sympathized with him, I wasn't that big a fan of the guy in the end. Truth be told, he received the worst smelling end of the stick when his wife left him for her first husband. Wyatt was destined to come out the loser; he couln't possibly fight against a war hero coming back to claim his bride. And now, after to years, Wyatt has come home and made himself into a hermit---only coming to town to sign checks and pick up his daughter.
Holly Fischer also comes home after her mother dies and her older sister drops her nephew at her doorstep and makes a run for it. Holly hasn't been on tea drinking terms with her family in ages and is placed in an impossible situation. She gives up what little life she has to go home and raise her year old nephew until her sister comes back. Only thing is, she falls in love: with he baby and Wyatt.
You can tell that this is going to end up badly for a few people when the book opens itself up. However, since it is wonderfully and emotionally written, the cliche doesn't even matter. You really begin to feel for this man who had everything that money could buy but lost his family. Wyatt and Holly slowly fall for one another and build a relationship when they both can see that things are destined to fall apart. Great story but I would have liked for the end to be a bit tidier. This is a one hanky book, unlike Summer of Two Wishes which rivaled a Nicholas Sparks book for tear factor.
