Two best friends. Two fresh starts. Will old regrets sabotage their second chance?
Janna’s heart is heavy with grief and broken by betrayal. But as she leaves the big city for a quaint midwestern town, the future feels less frightening with her best friend, Shelby, by her side. After landing a job in the local fresh market and the attentions of a handsome architect, she may yet learn to heal old scars…
Shelby loves the position Janna secured for her and the new sense of community, but wishes small-town life wasn’t so lonely. After packing up all she could salvage from her painful past, she endures more than her fair share of bumps on the winding road to recovery. Afraid her heart may be too damaged for real love, she drowns her sorrows in drunken nights at bars.
With new heartaches around every corner, can Janna and Shelby stay true to their friendship and their dream of lasting freedom?

I really liked the cover for this story and I have to say that after reading the blurb I was really drawn in and looking forward to being able to jump in to the story.
I found this to be a well written story about friendship and second chances. I thought that the two main characters were excellent and very well developed. They both have flaws that they both bring to the story, and their friendship, as they face different obstacles on their way to happiness. The pace really suited the story even if it is a slower pace than I am really used to.
This was a bit of a change of genre for me as I really stick either to crime and psychological thrillers or more chick lit style books and I would class this more as a contemporary romance why I won’t always go to pick but, I did thoroughly enjoy this one so I may well be a convert!
This is the first book in the Inspiration in Cologne series by Deborah King and I am really now looking forward to see what she brings for the rest of the books.
It is 4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it – very highly recommended!
