About the Book:
Over the years, Jo reels in a life she loves, centered on the outdoors, fishing (favoring a lucky wedding band lure), and her fine dining restaurant—a life that crashes away when her husband and business partner cheats her, leaving her bankrupt and alone.
Then her uncle dies, bequeathing Jo and her sister, Samantha, his rural property. Jo returns to Greenridge, determined to build a new business and permanent home—without the help of a man. Unfortunately Samantha wants her inheritance in cold, hard cash and hires a lawyer to get it for her, a lawyer who turns out to be none other than Jo’s long-lost love, Callum.
Jo’s fledgling plans—and her heart—are at risk once more.
If Jo can fight her insecurities, she might end up with a wedding band that doesn’t come with a sharp hook. But should she risk everything she’s worked for, yet again? Before she can decide, she needs to know: can a lost love truly be reclaimed?

A Forever Kind of Love
With the turn of a page, Jo is back in the town. A town to which she hoped never see again. Callum was just as surprised at her return. Life hadn’t been what he had imagined. A failed marriage and in debt to his father, he is stuck in a job he loathes. I don’t feel pity for him. As I continue to read, the hate I had for him in the first few chapters began to wane. I started to fall for the man he became. The ups and downs, misunderstandings galore, and the cozy, sit soft love that awoke as if simply slumbering kept me reading and hoping for the dreams of Jo and Callum.
The story was so well written and frustrating, in a good way. It kept me engaged in the love hate relationship Jo has with her sister, the pity and anger for Callum’s mother, and the surprise at the had me crying, smiling, and laughing like a lunatic. It kept me turning page after page. One day I want a sit soft kind of love. Ev Bishop is another author that I will be adding to my virtual library’s “to read more” list.
