223. It Happened One Night by Lisa Dale...

December 9, 2009
it happened one nightAbout the book:
Sometimes love finds you when you least expect it. Lana Biel has always wanted to shake the dust of Vermont off her feet and see the world, one exotic country after another. But when a lighthearted spring fling changes her life forever, she turns to the one man whose strong shoulders can lighten any burden: her best friend, Eli Ward. Eli has always been there for Lana--after all, that's what best friends do. But Lana isn't the only one hiding something. Eli is keeping secrets of his own that threaten their relationship. Yet as summer turns to fall, new desires awaken between them, even as old fears tear them apart. Then, when another Vermont winter fills the valleys with snow, Eli and Lana are given the chance for an adventure greater than they ever dreamed possible...and a love that will last for all time.

drey's thoughts:
Lana is a free spirit, who's not quite willing to commit to the life her sister has chosen. But she can't leave, because there's just the two of them. Even if Karin is married. Eli has always loved Lana. At least, as much as she lets him. Keeping him at arms' length is the only way she knows to not commit to a life she might not want. But life has a way of throwing you a loop when you least expect it.

The story's undercurrents get stronger when Lana gets pregnant. And everyone's hopes and fears drives them to do and say things they might usually not. It Happened One Night is a slow and leisurely read about two people who find their way back to each other, and take a chance on love. It is also a story of relationships--between sisters, between best friends, between estranged fathers and daughters, between spouses--and courage--courage to face the truth, and to do something about it.
