Travel writer Dayna Benning tours Europe to write a feature story for a travel magazine. Along the way, she helps her bestie scatter her husband’s ashes. When Dayna accidentally sprinkles Alex Mendes with dried rose petals intended for the deceased, she senses a chemistry with the silver fox airline pilot. Just one catch—he wears a wedding band. Embittered by her divorce, Dayna refuses to be a homewrecker, like the woman who ruined her marriage. Alex and Dayna go their separate ways, but she’s mystified when serendipitous signs point her toward him at every turn. Determined to find out why, she learns Alex is a widower. Dayna hopes for a second chance at love…but her resentful heart stops her. Can she forgive those that broke her heart the first time? And for that matter, can she forgive herself for her failed marriage? Unless she finds a way to piece together her fragmented heart, Alex will forever remain a fantasy.
Wow! This book has me feeling all the feels. This is my book by Lolo Paige and won’t be my last. Her ability to weave a delightful story that explores the deepest emotions felt by our most important relationships is amazing.

I thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming second chance at love story. The characters are well written and likeable. The backstories of their pasts add depth to this story that kept me engaged and wanting to know more. I also enjoyed the descriptions of Spain and Portugal and while I’ve not been, I feel like I was transported there and would love to visit. It sounds breathtaking.
I can’t wait to read the second book in this series. I’m interested to see what the next adventure will hold and how this series unfolds.
