A woman looking for a new lease on life moves to Arizona, where she rents a guest house on a gorgeous property with a mysterious owner - a man who teaches her about resilience, courage, and ultimately true love, in this funny, bighearted novel about hope and healing from New York Times best-selling author Jenn McKinlay.
Stuck in a dreary Boston winter, Annabelle Martin would like nothing more than to run away from her current life. She's not even 30 years old, twice-divorced, and has just dodged a marriage proposal - from her ex-husband. When she’s offered her dream job as creative director at a cutting-edge graphic design studio in Phoenix, she jumps at the opportunity to start over.
When she arrives in the Valley of the Sun, Annabelle is instantly intrigued by her anonymous landlord. Based on the cranky, handwritten notes Nick Daire leaves her, she assumes he is an old, rich curmudgeon. Annabelle is shocked when she finally meets Nick and discovers that he’s her age and uses a wheelchair. Nick suffered from a stroke a year ago, and while there's no physical reason for him not to recover, he is struggling to overcome the paralyzing fear that has kept him a prisoner in his own home.
Despite her promise to herself not to get involved, Annabelle finds herself irresistibly drawn to Nick. And soon she wonders if she and Nick might help each other find the courage to embrace life, happiness, and true love.
"Both fans and readers who are not already smitten with McKinlay’s zingy prose and effervescent wit will soon find themselves happily succumbing to this author’s many literary charms, including the effortless way in which she deftly pivots from moments of comic absurdity to heartfelt emotion without missing a beat.” (Booklist, starred review)
“Overall, this book was incredibly enjoyable and very engaging. I would definitely recommend Wait For It to friends who enjoy reading romance novels that deal with more serious topics.” (The Nerd Daily)
