Wait for It

Summary: A woman looking for a new lease on life moves to Arizona where she rents a guest house on a gorgeous property with a mysterious owner–a man who teaches her about resilience, courage, and ultimately true love, in this funny, bighearted novel about hope and healing from New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay.

Stuck in a dreary Boston winter, Annabelle Martin would like nothing more than to run away from her current life. She’s not even thirty years old, twice-divorced, and has just dodged a marriage proposal… from her ex-husband. When she’s offered her dream job as creative director at a cutting-edge graphic design studio in Phoenix, she jumps at the opportunity to start over.

When she arrives in the Valley of the Sun, Annabelle is instantly intrigued by her anonymous landlord. Based on the cranky, handwritten notes Nick Daire leaves her, she assumes he is an old, rich curmudgeon. Annabelle is shocked when she finally meets Nick and discovers that he’s her age and uses a wheelchair. Nick suffered from a stroke a year ago, and while there’s no physical reason for him not to recover, he is struggling to overcome the paralyzing fear that has kept him a prisoner in his own home.

Despite her promise to herself not to get involved, Annabelle finds herself irresistibly drawn to Nick. And soon she wonders if she and Nick might help each other find the courage to embrace life, happiness, and true love.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Pretty big fan of Jenn McKinlay’s  various cozy mystery series, her women’s fiction, I typically enjoy.


When I read the back cover of Wait for It, I picked up very slight Me Before You vibes. But Wait for It tackles a whole lot more issues and that may be some of its problem. The cover leads you to believe it’s a light and fluffy type read (perfect for days at beach with lots of daiquiri  drinks) and actually it is but it does deal with some heavier topics.

What I Liked:

The cover. SO pretty!

The notes between Annabelle and Nick. Cute.

How Nick tries to act one way, but certain characters can get him to show layers.


Bottom line: I liked this book. There was some things that were a bit eye-rolly about (Annabelle’s inability to get to work on time was one) but it was a quick, lightish read that provided a nice buffer between the mystery/thrillers I’ve been reading.
