Autumn Getaway (Seasons of Love #1) by Jennifer Gracen

autumn getaway

Lydia was going on a small three day “vacation” so that she could attend her best friend, Melanie’s wedding. The catch, everyone wanted to know about her first. She was recently divorced. So recent in fact, it happened three days prior to her arriving at the hotel. And she has a three and a half year old son who is speech impaired.

Lydia left her son with her ex-husband and went on the retreat. As soon as she is standing at the counter checking in, she meets a guy. So, here we go with the instant romance, right? WRONG. It wasn’t an instant romance like most authors do. Sam, the guy, had to work to get Lydia to open up to him and talk to him. It was a gradual liking for Lydia.

But does Sam share her feelings? Why would Sam want anything more than a one night stand? Does Lydia decide to do what her friends want her to do and hook up with Sam while at this wedding celebration weekend?

To find out these answers, and more, please get this book and read it.


Jennifer Gracen is an author that is new to me. I have never heard of her or read any of her books before. I am glad that I received this book and started to read it.

I can see myself somewhat in Lydia’s situation. Lydia is a character that MANY people could relate too. She is a newly single mom, raising her son mostly on her own. She puts her sons happiness before her own. This fits me and hits home with me because I am a single mother to a daughter and I put her happiness before mine. So I relate to this main character.

All of the characters that Jennifer wrote into this book are believable. I would be hard pressed for others to read this book and not identify, or at least understand, where some of the characters are coming from.

I highly recommend this book. I have the second book in this series and will be reading it as well.
