I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Willow was happily married with two adorable children but her life took an unexpected turn. Leaving her utterly devastated.
In her time of need she turned to the one person who had always been there for her, the one person who had never let her down, her beloved, Nan.
Packing up her life to move in with her seemed a great idea.
A chance for her and the children to heal, to start afresh.
What Willow wasn't expecting was to be attracted the new neighbour who had moved in across the road.
Jesse was determined to show Willow that all wasn't lost, instead wanting to show her that she had everything to gain.
Jesse wanted Willow to take a chance on him but was she ready to put her heart on the line?
Was she willing to put her love, trust and faith into a man who had the power to ruin her beyond repair?
A Reason For Everything starts off with Willow Dawson walking in on her husband, Rob, having sex on their dining room table with their next door neighbor. It seems this is not the first time Rob, her high school sweetheart, has been unfaithful. After telling him he needs to move out Willow decides she and her two young kids, Nate and Kaylee, will move in with her Nan, Betty, a spry and funny senior citizen.
Nan’s neighbors, the Bakers from across the street, are on vacation and asked their nephew, Jesse, to house sit for them. Jesse owns his own home remodeling business and is between homes now, so it works out for him. He meets Nan after moving in and she fills him in on her granddaughter and family. When he meets Willow he’s immediately attracted to her, and after meeting the kids, he feels it’s a done deal.
This sweet, short story moves along quickly, and while I’m not usually a fan of Insta-Love, it seems to work in this story. There are some funny scenes with Betty, her banter with Willow and Jesse is too cute. There’s a little drama and misunderstanding that isn’t too heavy and the end is as it should be!
