While she’d said she’d stop wherever her car died and start a new life, she isn’t so prepared when it finally happens.

Clay Ryley doesn’t know what to think of the beautiful

Starting over should always be this sweet...

Regan Croft is starting a new life. She is hesitant, almost reluctant at times, but knows that just because her old life was familiar that didn’t make it right. Or healthy… When faced with car trouble, she is understandably wary when Clay Ryley steps in to help her. That doesn’t stop him from extending his hand, and his friendship, however. Regan is prickly and Clay is calm but determined as he sets out on chipping away at her reluctance…

Free copy for an honest review.
A strong story of an abused woman fleeing the man doing it and trying to make a new life, driving a crap car and making a decision to settle wherever the car gives out. Landing in a small town full of friendly and helpful people, Regan has to try to learn to trust, make friends and possibly even find love. A lot harder than you imagine having lost all previous friends and family after being so isolated, it takes patience and someone to understand why she is so

Stalled Independence is the third book in the Holidays in Lake Point Series but can definitely be read as a standalone. The message of this book is important and powerful at the same time.

Sometimes when you think you are beaten down and broken and undeserving all it takes is one person to be your friend, to help you gain the strength to see yourself as others see you and you will once again become whole.

Regan ran away from a situation that made her feel like she deserved nothing in life and that

In the third installment of the Lake Point Series we meet Regan aka Mandy and Clay. They both have hurtful past. One is running for the past and the other doesn't trust too easy. Will these two finally get their acts together and learn to move forward or will they remain in the past?

Lovely story of a women finding her independence with the help of new found friends. Would have been a 5, but I thought the ending was a bit abrupt. I wanted just a little more closure, however on a whole it was a very enjoyable read.
I really liked Clay and his sister Callie, and Myrtle, the cafe owner. I look forward to reading more about this little town.

Regan is done. Done with the abuse and madness that Tony gives her. She drives until her heap of junk finally dies and that lands her is Lake Point. She meets Clay when the car dies and they slowly build a relationship. She is afraid to open up to him and his patience is wearing thin. When Tony shows up in town, it causes chaos with Clay. She knows she has to tell him everything. The folks of Lake Point stand with her and she is finally able to find peace.
Clay is a gem and she

Sarah Cass’ world is regularly turned upside down by her three special needs kids and loving mate, so she breaks genre barriers; dabbling in horror, straight fiction and urban fantasy. She loves historicals and romance, and characters who are real and flawed, so she writes to understand what makes her fictional people tick. And she lives for a happy ending – eventually. And enough twists to make ...more
