Review: Barefoot in the Rain, by Roxanne St. Claire
I loved the first Barefoot Bay book, and couldn't wait for this one. Hearing Jocelyn's story was heartbreaking, and I never rooted for a heroine more. Will was loveable and the perfect hero for her. This was a perfect blend of St. Claire's humorous wit and tender story-telling. I thought I'd find myself hating Will for helping her dad, or for Jocelyn leaning toward forgiveness, but I never did. St. Claire's grasp on Alzheimer's was astoundingly accurate and realistic. And as before in the previous book, the four friends were great as secondaries, as was the town. I cannot wait for Zoe's tale next. Not to be missed.
