Imagine the worst day of your life. Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?
Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.
So I hid.
Nine months later and I'm getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy.
Healing is that simple, right?
Zoe Baker has come to New Point to put herself back together. Tragedy and violence threatened to swamp her but she’s ready to start living life again and taking a job as the small town’s librarian is a step in the right direction.
She can handle the curious glances from residents being the new girl in town, but what she doesn’t expect is the intense looks that she gets from her very attractive neighbor.
He makes her feel things that she never thought she would feel ever again and she is intoxicated by his honesty and warmth. But Zoe has her reasons for keeping parts of herself hidden. Should she trust her heart to Miles or will her truth be too much to overcome?
“Less than a week in New Point and I’ve already started thinking of this place as my permanent residence. Blake wouldn’t be happy to hear that, he thinks this is a jaunt in a small town to recharge, and I’ll be back in the city by the end of the summer. He’s wrong, and my mother was right. This place will heal me, and it won’t be easy to leave.”
Miles Wilson is fascinated by the shy and beautiful girl next door. The more he gets to know about her, the deeper he falls. He knows that there is so much more to her than meets the eye and he is willing to wait as long as it takes for her to tell him her secrets. But he’s laid all of his feelings on the table in hopes that it will free her from her fears. But sometimes the past is too big and too encompassing to be swept away.
“I was right.” “Right about what?” I wonder. “You and I together… explosive.” He moves his head up, but his hands stay firmly on my waist, squeezing gently. “Damn, if you aren’t the sweetest thing I’ve ever tasted.”
New Point is a bit of a departure for Olivia Luck. She has created characters that are equally true and powerful in their own way. Each one (even the kids!) added layer upon layer to an intensely emotional story that kept me reading well into the night. This is why I’m an Olivia fan…

“New Point isn’t known for much breaking and entering, but I have to admit, this looks mighty suspicious,” an unmistakably Midwestern accent drawls from behind me, effectively scaring the sweat off my bare shoulders.
