Holiday Gift Guide- Barefoot In The Rain Book Review

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?

Jocelyn Bloom has had a rough life.  Living with an abusive Father and watching her mother get hurt.  Her one savior was the boy next store.  Whenever she needed to, she could escape to him.  When one night, things go to far, Jocelyn is forced to leave Will behind.

Even 15 years later, she can not forget about her best friend and love of her life.  She has toughened up, and is now helping others by being a life coach.  When a situation gets out of control, Jocelyn is forced to go home to hide.  

Will grew up and had the career of his dreams.  He is back to his old parents house, and is taking care of the man who took Jocelyn away.

When Will and Jocelyn meet up again, things are very strained with a lot of hurt feelings.  Jocelyn can not understand why Will would take care of the man who hurt her, and Will can not understand how Jocelyn can run away from her problems again.

This book will make you laugh and cry.  There are a lot of hard choices to be made, and a lot of emotional situations.  It does show how true love can conquer all.
