Reviewed by Miranda
Twenty years ago Sarah Reece’s heart was smashed into a million pieces as her baddie boyfriend was escorted out of town in handcuffs. Being arrested wasn’t even the worst part. That happened when Sarah told Cameron Murphy she was pregnant and he told her, she and the baby were a big mistake. Sarah never quite got over Cam Murphy but she did her best to raise their wonderful daughter, Lori.
Sarah and Lori won a trip of a lifetime to Australia. Their tremendous vacation was going perfectly until they got the surprise of their lives. A surprise neither was ready for. Walking up on Cameron Murphy in the Land of Oz, seeing him with his son was too much for them. Sarah and Lori ran from their past straight home to the safety and security of Eternity Springs, Colorado.
Cameron Murphy has one major regret in life and that’s leaving the woman he loves and their unborn child twenty years ago. Sarah has been in his dreams for years it’s almost as if a mirage landed on his boat deck, but mirages don’t often runaway. Seeing Sarah and his daughter Lori run from him is more painful than he can stand. Now that he has been confronted with his past he’s not about to lose a chance at getting to know his daughter and see the woman he loves again.
It’s time for Cameron Murphy to face all of his past. He will return to Eternity Springs and face the town and the people that shunned him for his bad Murphy blood. He will meet his daughter and hopefully mend fences with her and her beautiful mom. Cam longs for the family he’s never had and it’s about time he got it!
I’m gushing with love for Emily March’s Lover’s Leap! I swear I let out the biggest sigh of happiness as I finished Lover’s Leap! After reading Hummingbird Lake and Heartache Falls I have been dying to read Sarah, Cam and Lori’s story! I love everything about Eternity Springs and the people that reside there. As I crack open the book I feel like I’m revisiting family. The story starts with Sarah and Lori in Australia. I’m amazed that I found myself overwhelmed by emotions and brought to tears in the first twenty pages. Ms. March makes it impossible to not feel deeply for her characters.
I found Lover’s Leap to be very inspirational. Sometimes you do have to “leap like a lunatic” in order to find happiness. Sarah and Cam have so many things to overcome: past mistakes, trust issues, and their fear. Oh, and let’s not forget, a very pissed off daughter. One thing that really resonated with me is how choices affect lives. How the choices you make, and the people around you make, can affect your future; and how forgiveness is the answer even when it’s hard to forgive. I truly feel for Sarah’s struggle with her mom. Her mom’s Alzheimer’s is getting worse, it’s painful to watch but oh so real. Sarah has all these tumultuous feelings regarding her mom but no outlet. Cam’s past with the citizens of Eternity Springs is riddled with black spots. He is looked at as bad, not only because of his actions but the actions of his father. I love Cam’s road to redemption in Lover’s Leap. He is not the same boy that left town twenty years ago and it’s time everyone knows it.
It may have been twenty years but the chemistry between Sarah and Cam is still burning bright. Their journey in Lover’s Leap is filled with many trials and tribulations but all the difficulty is well worth finding love again. My favorite part is when Cam gives Sarah his own personal “hello”. It is a magical moment. Reunions abound in Lover’s Leap filling the story with hilarity, heartache, desire and love. Lover’s Leap is a stunning gem it sparkles bright with hope, love and dreams of happily ever after!
