her unfulfilled dreams of taking Hollywood by storm, Gillian
Claybrooke reluctantly returns home to assume life as a
librarian. A lonely nobody in high school, Gillian faces that
same status as an adult.
Duncan has returned to his hometown after twelve years because
of his ailing mother and missing father. Greyson was one of
those cool kids who ignored Gillian in high school and now,
when he steps up to her at a local diner, she coolly rebuffs
him. Dismayed by her reactions to Greyson, both by the
knowledge that sheís still interested in him and by her quick
dismissal of him, Gillian ends up being a supportive friend to
Greyson after his mother dies.
Greysonís Heart is the classic loner girl/popular hunk
find each other after all. I have to admit, I didnít click
with this story. Beyond the fact that Greyson and Gillian
went to high school together, there wasnít much of a back
story to them, which would conceivably explain the speed at
which they hooked up. Nor did I buy into the bit about
Greysonís parents. I believe that Ms. Chailyn has potential;
unfortunately, this story doesnít showcase her talent in the
best light. Additional editing would not be remiss either.
Case in point, Gillianís name changes from Claybrooke to
Claybrook and back again throughout the story. However, I
love both Paul and Tannerís presence in the story. As best
friends of Gillian and Greyson, respectively, they provide
common sense and comic relief to the main characters.
