She Walked Back into His Life...

The last place Lisa Alvarez expected to find herself was babysitting for her ex-sister-in-law's three rambunctious kids. But when Maggie called her up and begged for time alone, something in Lisa made her say yes--for one weekend she'd leave behind the career she'd built and her regimented new fiance. But Lisa never expected her handsome ex-husband Nick to show up on the doorstep, walking back into her life, and taking over more than the weekend... And His Heart

Nick can't believe how Lisa has changed over the years-- and how she's stayed the same. His heart still races when her eyes catch his, his pulse pounds when she's near. After tragedy pushed them apart, Nick spent eight years rebuilding his life and his soul. Can he risk losing his heart again, for a second chance at true love?

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The nice little life that account executive Lisa Alvarez has spent the last eight years constructing is about to fall apart. She's due to marry her boss in barely a month when painful reminders of her dead baby daughter and her ex-husband Nick Maddux force themselves on her. Both Lisa and Nick have tried to make new lives for themselves since the baby's death, although Nick has embraced his daughter's short life by becoming a master craftsman of cradles while Lisa has simply shut the door on her past. Their reunion is fiery, passionate and difficult to read, in part because Lisa is not a congenial character, having turned herself into a career-driven robot. The story veers between Lisa and Nick's rediscovery of their love and the burgeoning love of Nick's sister, Maggie, and sexy screen writer Jeremy Hunt. Maggie and Jeremy are both attractive and deserved more length and breadth than author Freethy (Daniel's Gift) gave them. A magical leitmotif throughout does, however, go some way towards transcending these weaknesses.

From Library Journal

Four weeks before she is to be married, a frantic call for help from her childhood best friend drags Lisa Alvarez out of her safe, well-ordered existence in Los Angeles and back into a life she thought she had left behind, with painful, romantic, and ultimately satisfying results. A pair of wary, emotionally fragile protagonists, a cast of exceptional secondary characters (including three engagingly realistic children), and a multilayered plot that deftly interweaves humor, passion, and the tragedy of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome result in a poignant, heartwrenching, yet heartwarming story that is laced with love and a gentle hint of fantasy. It may appeal to readers who enjoy the work of Debbie Macomber, LaVyrle Spencer, and Kristin Hannah. Freethy (Ask Mariah, Avon, 1997) won a Rita Award in 1997 and lives in the San Francisco Bay area.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three Good Relationships in One Book Dec 15 2001
By Rhonda
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my second Barbara Freethy book ("Some Kind of Wonderful" is Fabulous!) and I will now look for all of her books. This book weaves a great story around Lisa and her ex-husband Nick. Lisa finds herself babysitting for her ex-sister-in-law, Maggie, when Maggie is burned out and needs some time alone. Lisa is about to marry Raymond, her much older boss, in one month. Nick shows up to help with the extended babysitting and thus begins their journey to work through painful past events and ever present attraction. I really enjoyed the way the author blends Lisa, Maggie, and Raymond's stories together and I found the ending particularly good. This is a quick, enjoyable read with interesting characters.
