A Bolt from the Blue by Maggie Wells

True love, like lightning, never strikes twice—or does it?

As a free-spirited young woman, Hope Elliot was desperate to escape her snobbish high society family. So she ran off to Paris, where she lived for twenty-five years. Now widowed, she's come home to settle her family's massive lakefront estate. But before she can put her mother's house on the market, it needs a major renovation. Enter master electrician Mick McInnes, a traditional guy who's about to turn her life upside down...

Aside from the fact that Mick is hopelessly attracted to his latest client, Hope represents everything he doesn't want in a woman. She's ridiculously rich and adventurous, yet she doesn't seem to know much about the real world. Besides, his policy is to never get involved with clients. But he can't seem to resist the Chicago heiress's sizzling advances-and soon enough finds himself in her bed, feeling like a teenager once again. And like teenagers, the two of them will just have to convince their families that opposites can not only attract, but they can also make the perfect match...

4.5 stars

This is the second in the series and the first I have read, but I will be going to find the first, as this is a well written book, which I read in one sitting.

Stories of second chances at love can become a little maudlin, or dismissive of the first relationship. That is avoided here by a few very subtle references and one scene which brilliantly gets into Hope's head and gives us her thoughts, which are very much off topic at a crucial moment. So insightful, honest, and very effective at bringing her feelings to the fore.

There are some painfully humorous moments when she re-engages with the society that she ran away to avoid, and her sister is pretty beastly too. But her interactions with Mick are at times funny, sexy, and poignant. It would be difficult not to laugh at some of her adventures, but there is a lost quality to her life that only she can resolve – and Mick is both aware of that and fearful of what it will mean too.

I really enjoyed how this story developed and would definitely recommend it to you.

Maggie Wells is a deep-down dirty girl with a weakness for hot heroes and happy endings. By day she is buried in spreadsheets, but at night she pens tales of people tangling up the sheets. Fueled by supertankers of Diet Coke, Maggie juggles fictional romance and the real deal by keeping her slow-talking Southern gentleman constantly amused and their two children mildly embarrassed. They are the food purveyors to a demanding dog and an impertinent house rabbit she claims is the love of her life. Shh. Don’t tell her husband.
