Sue Ann Simpkin’s perfect world is torn apart when her high-school sweetheart turned husband comes home and announces he is in love with someone else. Holly Lane by Toni Blake, six months have passed and Sue Ann has retreated to a cabin for a weekend by herself to try and figure out how she is going to move forward to become happy when her solitude is interrupted.
Adam has retreated to the cabin he rents every time this year but this year he is without his twin boys. Adam is seeking the solitude of the cabin so he can be grouchy and sulk in peace because he is missing his boys. When the weather conspires against him, Adam finds himself stuck in the cabin with Sue Ann. Adam and Sue Ann have known each other for years but both are surprised to find themselves attracted to each other. But as they start to get closer can they each move beyond their own issues to be together?
Holly Lane was a cute read, it was really touching to see what Sue Ann went through after her world fell apart. Besides being just a cute romantic read, Holly Lane is really the story of two individuals’ internal journeys from experiences in life. Holly Lane is told from the viewpoint of both characters so you get an indepth look at their journey. I really enjoyed the community but I did feel like the sex scenes were a little superfulicious. A couple of the scenes moved the story line along but a couple of times it felt like they were added later and didn’t really add much to the story. If you are looking for a good story about the progression of a relationship then Holly Lane is for you.
