Something Good ….. Darlene Deluca

Description:
A mistake. A blessing. A tragedy.

And now, Mandi Evans has made it her goal to fade into anonymity. Once a straight-A student with her choice of colleges, she’s withdrawn into a life that consists of two jobs, an online class, and memories. Crippled by the past, she feels unworthy of a better life – until Lane Whitmore walks into the diner where she works six nights a week.

An urban planner, Lane is looking to revitalize the rundown part of town where Mandi’s hidden herself away. He can’t help but notice this diamond in the rough as well, and what starts as simple good times grows to . . . Something more.

With Lane, Mandi feel alive again, and she makes a bold decision – one that could chart her course on a path to redemption. But will keeping her plan a secret from Lane turn out to be the biggest mistake of all?

 

Review:

Wow !!! That was a 4 star read.

It was a roller coaster of a ride. Every emotion was lived in these pages. The turmoil and angst that Mandi went through on a daily basis was a total drain.

As the story proceeds we learn why Mandi is so closed off. I won’t give too much away, but have tissues handy 

Lane was not what I expected, he was as open as you could get. I enjoyed their ‘it’s only for a good time’ attraction, but at the same time i wanted  them to recognize how good they were together!  And, the  ‘will they/won’t they, was entertaining to read.

The author expands her characters gradually, and watch their fights and eventual HEA, (although I was worried it wouldn’t happen).  It’s a great read, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a different read.
