A Book a Day with Tracy Ewens: Reserved

Reserved (A Love Story #4)
Published: February 9, 2016

Genre: Romance

If only life were as simple as making a reservation.
Makenna Rye Conroy was living the dream—with an amazing husband and a beautiful new baby daughter—when one night changed everything.

Almost six years after Adam’s death, Makenna and her daughter Paige have built a solid, happy life together. Makenna manages her brother’s trendy restaurant, The Yard, and helps out at Ryeland Farms, the family business, all while navigating the world of private school parenting. Sure, being a single mom has its challenges, but she hardly has time to pack her daughter’s lunch in the morning, let alone think about dating.

Travis McNulty, the middle child and biggest disappointment of the McNulty clan, is a chef at his best friend’s new restaurant. He gave up apologizing for not being the football hero his family wanted a long time ago. In fact, Travis apologizes for very little these days. He loves creating great food—it’s more of a passion than a job—and he lives life on his own terms with few complications.

For the past couple years, Makenna and Travis have worked side by side at The Yard, bickering, teasing, and never taking each other very seriously. That is until Makenna has her usual reoccurring dream; but this time, instead of her late husband as the featured man, Travis stands in his place. Travis may be attracted to his best friend’s sister, but she’s a widow and a mother, which tops the charts for complicated in his book.

As the game changes, Makenna and Travis, with a little help from Paige, have to figure out what they are willing to risk to reserve a table for three.

“Travis listened as Kenna shared the hilarious story of her first online date complete with flailing arms and the occasional snort of laughter. He’d never seen this version of her before: she was free of her details and defenses. It was almost as if the total disaster of her date had liberated her, torn away something unknown. He had always thought his best friend’s sister was pretty, smart-ass, and bossy, but when she leaned on her elbows with the sleeves of her silk blouse rolled up and dark hair dancing around her face, Travis was gone. The dim light of the bar, the glint in her green eyes—for a moment it felt as if they were on a date and those eyes were dancing for him.”
