Love and Landscape by Lacey Black Review


* * * * * * * * * *


Jensen Grayson has truly loved one woman. Even after a short-lived marriage, the ghost of the girl he once knew has plagued his adulthood. Now, a single father, Jensen’s world revolves around his son, Max, and his landscape business. Until one day, he’s contracted for a job at the house he’s always avoided.

Rockland Falls was the only place that felt like home. Pulled from the life she knew at eighteen, Kathryn Elliott was forced to leave it all behind, including the boy she loved. Now, she’s returning home to pick up the pieces of her chaotic life and find her happiness once more.

Will Jensen and Kathryn be able to look past the years’ worth of hurt to forge a future? When exposed secrets wreak havoc on their new life, can they move past the lies if they revolve around their own families?

Love and Landscape is the third book in Lacey Black’s Rockland Falls series, a spin-off of her Summer Sisters series, but you don’t have to read that series to enjoy this one. This book is a second-chance romance between first loves, Jensen Grayson, owner of a successful landscape business, and Kathryn Elliott, the girl who broke his heart with no explanation. This couple had a history going back to high school that was cut short by Kathryn’s unexplained, middle-of-the-night departure with her family. Returning to Rockland Falls 12 years later, Kathryn just wants a fresh start in the only place that’s ever felt like home.

The chemistry between Jensen and Kathryn is still there, but old wounds and hurts need to be dealt with before this couple can move forward. Not only do they also have to deal with Jensen’s nightmare of an ex, but the truth of what happened all those years ago still has to be dealt with as well. A love like theirs never really goes away, though, and Lacey masterfully takes readers along for the ride as Jensen and Kate navigate that journey back to it. Heart-tugging, emotional, sweet and romantic, this is a must-read for any second-chance romance fan.

Love and Landscape was an entertaining and sexy addition to this fantastic series, and I finished it already thinking about the next book. I need more of this town, more of this family, and I will never get enough of Lacey Black’s small town romances. Black fills her amusing, engaging stories with endearing characters and sexy-sweet romances, and I reach for her books when I want to get lost in the lives, and loves, of a big family in a small town. Five smooches from me for Love and Landscape by Lacey Black!
