Leaving Yesterday by Zoe Dawson



Book Description

Rafferty Hamilton doesn't plan on putting down roots anytime soon. With her divorce final, the hotel heiress has left Manhattan behind to scout new locations for her family's chain of resorts. Which is why it's so frustrating to be stranded in Laurel Falls while a good-looking, slow-talking, Stetson-wearing mechanic takes his sweet time with her overheated coupe.
 
A decorated vet who paid his dues in Afghanistan, Trace Black can fix anything with an engine and get it revving—even Rafferty's ridiculous sports car. He's couldn't say the same for the knockout driver, who looks like she's never gripped a gear shaft in her life. Women like Rafferty don't usually stick around in Laurel Falls, but Trace finds himself showing her everything his hometown has to offer before she cruises on down the road.
 
As the days pass, Rafferty finds herself charmed by the pace of life and the openhearted warmth of the residents. She's even tempted to trust again—and it's all thanks to Trace. He's not the kind of guy she's used to falling for, but he just might be the man she needs.

A Laurel Falls Novel
Leaving Yesterday (Book 1)
Maybe Tomorrow (Book 2) *coming October 2016

Leaving Yesterday is the first book in Zoe Dawson's new Laurel Falls series.  This series is set in a little, run-down town in Montana where their residents are warm, friendly, and trying to save their dying hometown.  This is my first book by Zoe Dawson and I'm excited to read more from her!

Rafferty Hamilton needed to get away after signing her divorce papers from her cheating husband.  She needs to regroup and discover herself again.  So rather than fly, she decided to drive cross-country to scope out possible new locations for her family's chain of luxury resorts.  When her custom car breaks down right outside Laurel Falls, she meets sexy ex-Marine/town mechanic Trace Black.  But Mr. Fix-it doesn't have the parts needed to fix her car and they won't arrive for a couple of weeks, so Rafferty is stuck in town until then. 

Trace Black is dedicated to his family.  He knows Laurel Falls is just a stop for city-girl Rafferty.  And he also knows better than to fall for someone that is wealthly, thanks to his mother's desertion.  But that doesn't stop him from trying to show this city-girl what a small town like Laurel Falls has to offer and getting to know her in the process.

Rafferty is quickly charmed by this little town and the residents there.  But she isn't in Montana to make friends OR fall in love with a certain man.  So what will happen when her "real" life catches up with her in Laurel Falls...

...and will Trace forgive her for keeping it from him?
