Romance Review and Give Away: Barefoot in the Rain by Roxanne St. Claire
Famous “Lifecoach to the Stars” Jocelyn Bloom is entangled in scandal and desperate to go into hiding away from sunny California. When her friends offer her refuge at Barefoot Bay, Jocelyn doesn’t even hesitate… even though Barefoot Bay is the one place that she wishes that she could forget.
Years ago, she left Barefoot Bay with a broken heart and a promise to stay away from Will Palmer to keep him safe. Now, nothing about the tiny island off the coast of Florida is quite how she remembers it, especially Will.
To Will Palmer, Guy Bloom is more than the elderly, senile neighbor he looks after – he is the last connection to Jocelyn, the woman Will loved and lost. After Will reunites with Jocelyn again for the first time, it doesn’t go smoothly. Shocked by the change in her father’s personality, Jocelyn struggles to reconcile her dark childhood with her father who has grown close to Will.
Jocelyn has guided countless clients to happiness – but can she do the same for her own?
Barefoot in the Rain is the second book in Roxanne St. Claire's Barefoot Bay series. The first novel, Barefoot in the Sand, came out in May. The plot revolves around four women, best friends from college, who face various grown-up challenges in life and of course, in love. Barefoot in the Rain is focused on Jocelyn, a successful professional life coach who hides more than one painful secret behind her glossy exterior.
In Barefoot in the Rain, Jocelyn unwillingly returns to her native Barefoot Bay to support her friend Lacey deal with the aftermath of losing her home in a hurricane. In Barefoot in the Rain, Jocelyn is once again in Barefoot Bay - but now she is hiding from the paparazzi after a very public scandal that threatens to destroy her professionally and emotionally. Yet, she still would not go back to her childhood home - or even visit that part of the island. Thanks to her friends and to a long lost love, Jocelyn might just find her happily-ever-after - if only she can face the present and let go of the past.
