Barefoot in the Rain by Roxie St. Claire

Book Description:
A Barefoot Bay Novel
They say you can never go home again . . .
When "Life Coach to the Stars" Jocelyn Bloom is embroiled in scandal, the only place she can hide is the one place she wishes she could forget. She left Barefoot Bay-and the boy next door who knew all her secrets-years ago. Now nothing about the tiny island off the coast of Florida is quite how she remembers it, especially Will Palmer. He's even more gorgeous and tempting . . . and still capable of turning her world inside out.
But what if someone is waiting for you?
To Will Palmer, Guy Bloom is more than the elderly, senile neighbor he looks after-he's the last connection to Jocelyn, the woman Will loved and lost. But the reunion with Jocelyn doesn't go smoothly. Shocked by the change in her father's personality, Jocelyn struggles to reconcile her dark childhood with the sweet, confused man who has grown close to Will. Jocelyn has guided countless clients to happiness-but can she escape the rainy days of her past for a new sunny future with Will?

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book.  Jocelyn needs a place to lay low and goes to the last place she ever wanted to go...home.  Her three best friends in the world are there to help her overcome it all and believe in her no matter what the stories.  Will knows he let the best thing in the world slip through his fingers 15 years ago but he doesn't realize just how much went on.
I enjoyed all the characters.  Catching up with the ones from the first book and getting to know Jocelyn better.  Her and Will's relationship and past was interesting to read.  Her father's story was intriguing and thought provoking.  The back story and the new story wove together well and I liked the nice little twists that were worked in!
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a good entertaining romatic read.

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
