Book Review, Blog Tour, and Giveaway: "Just Let Go" by Courtney Walsh

About the Book

Just Let Go
Title: Just Let Go
Author: Courtney Walsh
Release Date: June 5, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
For Quinn Collins, buying the flower shop in downtown Harbor Pointe fulfills a childhood dream, but also gives her the chance to stick it to her mom, who owned the store before skipping town twenty years ago and never looking back. Completing much-needed renovations, however, while also competing for a prestigious flower competition with her mother as the head judge, soon has Quinn in over her head. Not that she’d ever ask for help.
Luckily, she may not need to. Quinn’s father and his meddling friends find the perfect solution in notorious Olympic skier Grady Benson, who had only planned on passing through the old-fashioned lakeside town. But when a heated confrontation leads to property damage, helping Quinn as a community-service sentence seems like the quickest way out—and the best way to avoid more negative press.
Quinn finds Grady reckless and entitled; he thinks she’s uptight and too regimented. Yet as the two begin to hammer and saw, Quinn sees glimpses of the vulnerability behind the bravado, and Grady learns from her passion and determination, qualities he seems to have lost along the way. But when a well-intentioned omission has devastating consequences, Grady finds himself cast out of town—and Quinn’s life—possibly forever. Forced to face the hurt holding her back, Quinn must finally let go or risk missing out on the adventure of a lifetime.
My Thoughts
I have heard of Courtney Walsh before, but I have never read any of her books before. I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future! The book was very well written and made me feel like I was part of the story. I was drawn into Grady and Quinn's story and wanted to do nothing but read until it was done. They were both flawed and hurting people, but learned and grew through the story. I liked them both very much. The fact that the book is set in my home state of Michigan was cool and it even mentioned my birth town. I didn't realize until I was posting my review that "Just Let Go" was the 2nd book in the series. I read the blurb about the first book and the couple from that book do make appearances in this book, but I did not feel like anything was missing or not understandable by not reading it first (that said, I would have read the first book first, just because I like to read series starting from the beginning).

I'm from Michigan, too! That automatically makes a book more appealing.

I've not yet read Courtney Walsh's books. I've heard great things about them.

Great review! I have heard of Courtney Walsh as an author, but I haven't read any of her books yet. I love the premise of this book and can't wait to read it. However, I think I'll read Just Look Up first before diving into this one because I prefer to read series in order, too.
