Bridges would be happy never to have to see the man who dumped
her again. Unfortunately, she has to pick up some supplies
for her carpentry work, and Luc Carr owns the only hardware
store in town. When they have to ride out a storm together in
the hardware store, will they patch things up or make things
Weathering the Storm has a pretty basic premise: exes
forced into close proximity by some sort of bad situation.
Luckily, this story rises above the cliché because it features
such likeable characters. Stephanie is a hardheaded,
tomboyish carpenter with a secret vulnerability. Luc is a
sexy, self-assured guy who knows what he wants and won’t
settle for less, yet he’s also very caring. I enjoyed reading
their rocky journey toward rediscovering love.
Weathering the Storm only had one real problem, which
was a biggie for a grammar geek like me. There were enough
editing errors that I was pulled out of the story a few times,
which was unfortunate given the overall quality of the tale.
Even so, I enjoyed Weathering the Storm, and if
you’re in the mood for a quick, sweet contemporary, you
probably will too.
