Willow Park Romance # 1
By: Sarah Hegger
Releasing March 31st, 2015
In this evocative new series from author Sarah Hegger, a woman returns home after a long absence—and wonders if two wrongs really can make a right...
Nine years ago Lucy Flint ran away to Seattle, taking her friend's boyfriend and leaving her high school sweetheart without a word of explanation. Now she's back in Willow Park, Illinois, to help care for her ailing father—and it's no surprise that her ex, Dr. Richard Hunter, is still angry.
Still, she's a different Lucy now. Sober, wiser, ready to make amends to the long—make that very long—list of those she mistreated during her wild younger days. Falling for Richard all over again would mean wreaking havoc in both their lives and possibly squandering her opportunity for redemption. But here, in the place where everything went wrong, is the one person who always felt right, and a second-chance that could be the best mistake she ever made…

I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed reading this book and I'm interested in reading the next in the series as well! Josh should be a fun character to read about! I really liked that it was about forgiveness. Lucy has clearly made some problems in her past, but she's going through the steps to recovery and making amends in her life. She goes back to her hometown to ask for forgiveness from those she's hurt. That's when she comes across Richard, her high school sweetheart. The reunion is as difficult as she imagined, but worth it for her recovery. This book had a lot of the typical romance stuff but it wasn't just about the romance. It was really about Lucy overcoming her past; she is a really strong character and Richard is a good match for her. She has overcame a lot of struggles in her life and took responsibility to own up to her past mistakes. I really wasn't a big fan of Lucy's parents. It seemed that they were so upset with her and couldn't forgive her mistakes. I understand that they were disappointed in the choices she made, but it was 9 years ago and she was in high school at the time. I felt like they should be able to notice how much she's changed. It was a little frustrating to see how they acted towards her. But it definitely showed her strong personality!
About the Author
Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.
Mimicking her globe-trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother.She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.
She loves to hear from readers and you can find her at any of the places below.
