Falling for Leigh
by Jennifer Snow
All Logan Walters wants to do is finish his book. Is that too much to ask? He finds a nice bed and breakfast in the quiet town of Brookhollow to do just that. But he can’t think straight with the noisy children running up and down the hall and that incessant pounding coming from next door. Not being able to take the distraction, he marches over to ask the offender to cease her hammering. After a brief conversation with the beautiful woman next door, he saves her from falling off her rickety ladder, then leaves with a broken wrist for his trouble.
Leigh Norris loves kids. So much so that she operates her own daycare. Having tried and failed to have children of her own, she gives love to the children she cares for. When the grumpy author from the B & B next door breaks his wrist while saving her from a fall, she offers to help Logan by typing the rest of his book.
These two have a rocky start. Logan is resentful that he needs help and Leigh has her own tender feelings with an ex-husband and his very pregnant wife. While Logan and Leigh work together, they start becoming more in sync. They both have the same goals…a family, but in order to achieve them, their lives would take them in different directions.
Logan’s needs to gain custody of his daughter or move out to California to live closer to her. Leigh wants nothing more than to adopt a baby and raise him or her in Brookhollow.
What I liked best about this story is that Logan and Leigh had to work for their relationship. It was complicated and sometimes messy with life’s problems. They had to make some tough decisions and the happily ever after did not come without some tears.
The infertility story line was especially touching. I really felt for Leigh and her struggle to come to terms with the fact she would not be able to carry a pregnancy to full term. Logan started as a self-absorbed writer but ended up as a swoon worthy hero.
I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a strong romance with lots of heart!
