Blog Tour - Kisses in the Rain Review and Giveaway



About the book: Georgie Tate is a survivor. She survived an abusive relationship. She survived the car accident that took the life of her controlling fiance. Now she just needs to survive the memories that haunt her. Escaping to her aunts' cozy home on a tiny island outside of Seattle, Georgie finds just the change of pace she needs to pick up the pieces of her life. Taking a job at a local seafood restaurant is the first step in reclaiming her sense of self, but she is completely unprepared for the battle that awaits her there.

Jace Lowe has loved and lost, and he's determined that it will never happen again. Hardened by heartbreak, he stays focused on his work as sous chef at one of the island's top seafood restaurants. When beautiful Georgie takes her place on the restaurant's staff, Jace is resolved to keep her at arm's length, and his downright rudeness her first week goes a long way in achieving that goal. Georgie, on the other hand, doesn't want anything to do with Jace anyway and prickles against his abrasive behavior. As the combative pair comes together on a joint project for the restaurant, they find their distaste for one another dwindling. The connection is undeniable—and it terrifies them both. Can two people jaded by the past be softened by the promise of once-in-a-lifetime love, or is this just another recipe for disaster?

My review: I really felt as though I was in the rainy Washington weather along with Georgie as I read, I love it when the setting seems to come so alive, the way it did with this book! 

I loved Georgie, she really is a well-developed character. I loved the way she's lost her memory, and is a bit befuddled at first, that brought out a whole new dimension to her character. I also really liked Jace, you could tell just how hurt he was by his girlfriend at the beginning and that hurt spilled over into every aspect of his life, including his job at the restaurant. That was unfortunate for Georgie, because she had just escaped a relationship with a young man who was controlling and she looks for that in every man that is near her. It made her terrified of Jace at first. 

I loved the other characters too, especially Georgie's aunts. I loved Faye and Tru, it was really fun to see that Tru was still developing even at the end of this book. I loved that Georgie was able to help them almost as much as they helped Georgie, it was a reminder to me that we are all here to help one another and sometimes we do that without even knowing that we are.

I really enjoyed the plot of this one, I loved that as Georgie's memory of what happened returns, you feel her get more and more put together. And the love story of this one is just swoon-worth. It's so great. I didn't want to put it down for anything!

About the author: Nearly every one of Krista Lynne Jensen's elementary school teachers made a note on her report card pointing out that she was a daydreamer. It was not a compliment. So, when Krista grew up, she put those day dreams down on paper for others to enjoy. When writing, she fuels her creativity with chocolate covered cinnamon bears and popcorn. When shes not writing, she enjoys reading, hiking, her family, and sunshine. But not laundry. She never daydreams about laundry. Krista is a native of Washington State and now lives in the northern Rocky Mountains. Through her stories she places characters in settings she loves, brings them to life, and challenges them to fight for what they want. The Orchard was inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion and Flathead Valley, Montana, a favorite family vacation spot. If she had a cat, she would call it Jane. She is the author of Of Grace and Chocolate, 2012.
