Life on his ranch could be their future. If they can overcome their past.
Felicity’s life story reads like the script to a bad soap opera. Girl’s high-school boyfriend becomes a drug addict. Girl falls for boyfriend’s best friend. Girl leaves them both behind only to return home years later for murdered ex-boyfriend’s funeral. Now she’s back home in Montana, ready to start fresh. She’s got a long list of amends to make and relationships to rebuild, including one with the man who has owned her heart for sixteen years.
Silas doesn’t need much. He’s got a great horse, close friends and the Lucky Heart ranch, but something has always been missing. He’s not an idiot. He knows the missing piece is Felicity. And now that she’s returned to Prescott, he’s got a second chance to win her heart. This time, the only thing standing in his way is history. Drudging up the past is going to be about as painful as playing tug of war with barbed wire. But if they can heal old wounds, he’ll get the girl he should have had all along.
Running from the past is nothing new for Felicity. Years ago a series of events led to Felicity leaving her family and hometown behind while she sought refuge in another state. A series of ‘mistakes’ that has haunted Felicity for years prompted the snappy gal from Montana to shun everything that made her feel loved or adored. After all – what kind of girl leads her boyfriend to a path towards drug use and then falls for his best friend?? Guess you are looking at her…..
Sixteen years pass in Felicity’s absence. Nothing is the same in the small town of Prescott, Montana. A blessing and curse for Felicity. Returning home after so long of an absence has left Felicity trying her best to make up for the mistakes of the past. Nothing has quite prepared Felicity for the face to face she was about to encounter with Silas.
Falling in love with his best friend’s girlfriend was never in the plans. Yet – Silas couldn’t help the intense emotional pull he felt towards Felicity. After the repercussions of having Felicity walk out of his life so long ago, Silas still can’t help but feel the attraction the gal that stole his heart so long ago. Now that Felicity is around more, Silas can’t bring himself to stay away. Something that is proving both a blessing and a curse. Silas is determined to win Felicity’s heart, but that task is proving harder and harder to accomplish. Can the two overcome their mistakes and heartache from the past?
The Lucky Heart is the third book in the Jamison Valley series by Devney Perry. Our main character – Felicity – is quite a bit snarky and standoffish. A combination that sets the pace to this book that centers around second chances and forgiveness. In spite of the exterior, Felicity really has a soft heart that is waiting to be loved. Silas is the one regret that still haunts Felicity and causes her to feel the regret of days gone by.
These two have fought hard to find their place in life. With the patience of a Saint, Silas is in it for the long haul. Proving to Felicity that she can’t run away from him like she did so long ago. Silas is not the typical hero. Everything Silas has done in life is a result of the situation that happened between Felicity and himself. It’s a wild and crazy ride for these two, and the bumps along the way provide the premise of this sweet novel about second chance romances. This book is defiantly a standalone, but make sure you pick up all the books in the Jamison Valley series. You won’t regret it!!
