Now or Never (San Francisco Thunder #4)

NOW OR NEVER                                           VICTORIA DENAULT

All Winnie Braddock wants is a quiet place to be alone and time to heal her battered heart. But the refuge she'd hoped for in her family's summer cottage is destroyed when she gets there to find Holden Hendricks literally camped out in the driveway. He made her life hell when they were kids, and despite what he says, it doesn't look like much has changed. She doesn't care if her brother hired Holden to renovate the house this winter; she wants him gone.

You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. Holden knows that hockey saying all too well. After all, he could have gone pro if he hadn't messed up so much as a kid. But now he's desperate to prove he's changed for the better, especially to Winnie Braddock. As the two work together to fix up the cottage piece by piece, they realize that perhaps they can give each other the new beginning they've both been waiting for -- if they're just willing to take the shot.


The book opens with a scene from the past when Winnie breaks Holden Hendricks nose, now many years later after the loss of their father, everyone is supposed to leave Vermont and hand back to their hometowns. Winnie makes a sudden change in her plans and in her life when at the airport decides to go back to the cabin. She does leave more at the airport. When arriving back at the cabin she believes that she will have it herself for the winter to pull herself together. Holden who has not been back in his home town in years is really not looked at too favorably. When he shows up at the cabin with his trailer Winnie is confused and a putout. Also, she did not know anything about Holden but her brother who has decided to fix up, remodel the cabin for her sister’s wedding next year. Not wanting to let anyone know she is still there she decides to deal with Holden. While the story goes along the author shows you Winnie dealing with her grief, and also her past with Holden. Holden wanted to make things right from his past and the people that got hurt and wanting, hoping for something anything with Winnie. This was a very good story with excellent characters and a good look at grief that people go through. I remembered what it was like when I lost my father when I was reading this story. I received this book from I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at
