She’s planted firmly on solid ground.

He’s ready to sweep her off her feet.

The only man pragmatic Lilly Hart needs in her life is a six-year-old. Widowed for three years, Lilly has decided to leave the home of her intrusive in-laws to stand on her own. However, her in-laws find her new life as a cook at Lake Manawa utterly unsuitable for their grandson. When an argument ensues, a handsome stranger–who designs roller coasters, of all things–intercedes on her behalf. But Lilly is not about to get involved with any man, especially this cocky gentleman. Little does she know she is about to begin the ride of her life.

Filled with the sweet romance of summer, The Ride of Her Life will have you laughing out loud and sighing contentedly as you spend the summer of 1906 at Lake Manawa.

My Review:
Another amazing winner from Lorna Seilstad! This is her third book in her Lake Manawa Summers series and wow! They just get better and better, though they were great from the start. Ms. Seilstad has created another captivating, fun, relaxing read that is filled with laughter and love, and some sweet messages along the way. Her characters quickly wiggle their way in to your heart, and they don’t want to leave!

Lilly has been a widow for 3 years, living with her in-laws and raising her son, Levi. Frustration builds in Lilly until she has to get out of her in-laws home. She needs to be able to provide for her son as a single mom now, and so she takes on a job at a local diner. That’s not the best choice but she has to earn a living for herself instead of depending on her in-laws. But, what a mess Lilly was in when they showed up at the diner and tried taking Levi from her…..whoa! That is just something that is not going to happen.

Nick, a handsome roller coaster designer is there at the perfect time. Seeing that Lilly was in need of help, he stepped in, stepped up, and the ride of Lilly’s life was about to begin. Never did she think that such a handsome man would steal heart but, well, let’s just say that this summer, this is one roller coaster ride you don’t want to miss!

From laughs, to love, anger and back again, this 5 Book worthy installment to Ms. Seilstad’s 5 Book worthy series is one that you should put on your must reads list. Filled with wonderful inspiration and lots of lessons to take to heart, Lilly, Nick, Levi and even those snobby in-laws will steal your heart instantly! Fantastic job, once again, Ms. Seilstad!

Available May 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
