The Night That Started It All by Anna Cleary is a sweet and heartwarming story; her heroine Shari may just be someone you can relate to easily.
Shari Lacey is a children’s book author and an artist. Although she has only sold one book so far she hopes to sell more. But after her recent fight with her ex-fiancée she doesn’t want to see anyone, especially let anyone see her, but she has to go to her brother’s birthday party where she will have to mingle, see and be seen, even if it is in disguise.
Luc Valentin is trying to find his good for nothing cousin Remy Chenier who has stolen from the company, but has had no luck finding him and his only chance of knowing of his whereabouts is by going to see his other cousin, Remy’s twin sister. With a board meeting approaching he knows he will not have a lot of time to save his cousin.
To both Luc and Shari’s surprise they find themselves instantly attracted when they first see each other at the party. And even if Shari thinks she won’t be able to respond to a man after everything she has been through she is surprise to feel something this strong for a complete stranger, That is until they have a short interlude and Luc find’s out that Shari was Remy’s fiancée, which he cannot easily forgive.
But consequences are bound to come from their very short-lived affair. And now Luc will have a hard time trying to keep Shari with him in France or risk loosing her and their child forever.
I related to Shari not in all her actions, but in many of her favorite pastimes and things she likes. Maybe you will too. 😉
