Rainshadow RoadLisa KleypasLucy Marinn is a glass artist living in Friday Harbor, Washington, with a boyfriend, Kevin, who she believes is her soul mate. She has always had a magical side—a gift that finds its way into the glasswork she creates—and she struggles to keep it contained. But when Lucy is blindsided by the most bitter kind of betrayal, she questions many of her choices. Kevin leaves her and his new lover is none other than Lucy’s own sister. Meanwhile, facing the severe disapproval of Lucy’s family, Kevin asks his friend Sam Nolan, a local vineyard owner on San Juan Island, to “romance” Lucy so that she can more easily move on. But when Sam and Lucy begin to feel real sparks between them, Lucy must ask herself if she can easily risk her heart again. Questions about love, loyalty, old patterns, mistakes, and new beginnings are explored as Lucy learns that some things in life—even after being broken—can be re-made into something beautiful. And that it is only by discovering who you really are that you can find the one who truly deserves you.

I read this book back in the summer, and I never got around to writing the review. If I had a word to describe it, it's charming. At the same time, I can't say either Lucy or Sam would be anywhere near the top of my list of favorite Lisa Kleypas characters or couples. In fact, I did have minor issue...
Lucy and Kevin have been together for 2 years. Unbeknownst to her, he's cheating on her. With her sister Alice. Alice has Issues. She was sick when she was a kid and has been treated with kid gloves ever since. Lucy gets introduced to Sam. While this took some time for me to get into, I really enjoy...
I really like the story overall. I did have a hard time getting into it at the beginning but soon fell in love with Sam. If you like romance, this is a good one.
Not as good as her regencies and the magic just seemed out of place.
