Review: Wait for It


Stuck in a dreary Boston winter, Annabelle Martin would like nothing more than to run away from her current life. She's not even thirty years old, twice-divorced, and has just dodged a marriage proposal... from her ex-husband. When she's offered her dream job as creative director at a cutting-edge graphic design studio in Phoenix, she jumps at the opportunity to start over.

When she arrives in the Valley of the Sun, Annabelle is instantly intrigued by her anonymous landlord. Based on the cranky, handwritten notes Nick Daire leaves her, she assumes he is an old, rich curmudgeon. Annabelle is shocked when she finally meets Nick and discovers that he's her age and uses a wheelchair. Nick suffered from a stroke a year ago, and while there's no physical reason for him not to recover, he is struggling to overcome the paralyzing fear that has kept him a prisoner in his own home.

Despite her promise to herself not to get involved, Annabelle finds herself irresistibly drawn to Nick. And soon she wonders if she and Nick might help each other find the courage to embrace life, happiness, and true love. - Summary from the Publisher 

My Thoughts: I really loved this book. I enjoyed seeing Phoenix through the eyes of a New Englander. And I adored Annabelle and her quirks. I loved her notes with Nick and how she finally got to meet him. I enjoyed their banter and how they started to become friends. And then of course, something more. I felt bad for Annabelle being stuck in a work battle - but I admired her determination to see it through and the prove herself to the rest of her team. I liked the team bonding moments.  I really liked learning more about Nick, his past, and his moments with his sister. Another fun read from one of my favorite authors!

Cover Thoughts: Wish I was there right now
