Waiting on Wednesday: Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I'm a HUGE Lisa Kleypas fan. Generally I prefer her historicals over her contemps, but I adored her first Friday Harbor book, Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, and I can't wait to read the second book, Rainshadow Road :)

Rainshadow Road Cover Title: Rainshadow Road
Series: Friday Harbor, Book 2
Author: Lisa Kleypas
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Release Date: February 28, 2012

Book Description (from Amazon):

Lucy Marinn is a glass artist living in mystical, beautiful, Friday Harbor, Washington. She is stunned and blindsided by the most bitter kind of betrayal: her fiancé Kevin has left her. His new lover is Lucy’s own sister. Lucy's bitterness over being dumped is multiplied by the fact that she has constantly made the wrong choices in her romantic life. Facing the severe disapproval of Lucy's parents, Kevin asks his friend Sam Nolan, a local vineyard owner on San Juan Island, to "romance" Lucy and hopefully loosen her up and get her over her anger. Complications ensue when Sam and Lucy begin to fall in love, Kevin has second thoughts, and Lucy discovers that the new relationship in her life began under false pretenses. 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 made into something new and beautiful.
