Kelly Samuels is dedicated to her career and has received several promotions in her short tenure at Lattice Works. Kelly’s family is shocked when she returns home unemployed and without an explanation.
Alec Alvarez, a pediatrician from a family full of doctors, is focused solely on his career. He’s declared his bachelor status for life and has no desire for love, marriage, or babies. When Alec finds Kelly stuck on the side of a snowy road, neither of them are prepared for the feelings they begin to have for one another.
As Kelly and Alec grow closer, he wants to know why the once happy-go-lucky Kelly is hesitant to his touch, while Kelly just wants to find purpose to her life again. After Kelly tells two conflicting stories as to why she lost her job, Alec steps in to discover what truly happened. Can Kelly come to terms with what happened to her and move on with her life? And can Alec love enough to give-up his bachelorhood status for good?
Life’s Gateway to Happiness is the second book in Anne Stone’s The Show Me series.
This is my first book by this author and overall found this to be quite a good read. This is the second book in this series, I have not read the first, but both can be read as standalones, I may well go back and read the first one now.
Kelly has had 3 promotions in her job in the past 18 months but ends up getting fired. On her way to her sisters she has a car accident. She is rescued by Alec, her sister’s brother-in-law, who is a doctor and a confirmed batchelor, until Kelly enters his life.
A good story, slow to build, but with lots of emotions running through it. Kelly has a secret that has affected her for her entire life, can it be overcome with Alec’s help?
I think most people would enjoy this book, its not over the top, deals with a difficult situation, has lots of love and family support in it, definitely worth a read!
