In this powerful debut novel, a young librarian grieves the loss of her husband...and discovers a love that defies classification.It's been over three years since a train accident made a widow of Katrina Lewis, sending her and her young daughter Abbey back to the suburban town of her youth...the only place that still makes sense. Lauder Lake is the perfect place to hide and heal. Recluse rocker Adrian "Digger" Graves survived the implosion of his music career, but his muse has long lain dormant. Until Kat hires him to play at her library—not on the basis of his hard rock credentials but rather, because of the obscure kids' TV jingle he wrote years ago. In a case of mistaken identity, Adrian stumbles into the lives of Kat and her comically lovable daughter.
Using tattoos as a timeline, Adrian unfurls his life for Kat. But as the courtship intensifies, it's unclear whose past looms larger: the widow's or the rocker's. Will their demons ever rest, or will they break these soul mates apart?
I picked this cover because...
I don't always have a conscious reason for picking the covers that I do. Some are just neat to look at. I have started reading this book already. I am getting a feel for Kat and Adrian. What strikes me about this cover is the tenderness. Leather, tattoos, and spiked jewelry with a dash of tenderness. It is in the hands. Their grip is easy but loving. Not hanging on hard because the person is your life line. It is the absent of thought touch lovers who are comfortable with each other have.
