Lace Bettingfield had a crush on Pierce Hollister when they
were in school. He was her brother's best friend and she was
several years younger. They grew up in the town of Cupid,
Texas. People wrote letters to Cupid and Lace was no
different. However, her letter was never supposed to be
seen. It was published in the paper and she was humiliated.
Pierce went away and played football for the Dallas Cowboys.
An injury sidelined him and he came home because his father
had taken ill. Lace is all grown up and works at the Cupid
Botanical Gardens. She along with several of her relatives
are now the people that answer the letters to Cupid.
Pierce shows up at the hospital the same time as Lace and
can't believe his eyes when he realizes who she is. He tells
her from the first that he is going back to football and is
only in town for a short time. Lace doesn't want to have
anything to do with him, but her old feelings for Pierce
have never left and she opens her heart to him again.
She has an opinion of him that Pierce wants to change and
goes about trying to show her that he is not a shallow
celebrity. Lace doesn't know how she is going to protect
her heart when it's time for Pierce to leave and she is ALL
OUT OF LOVE
This is the first book I have read by Lori Wilde. I can tell
you it won't be my last. Loved Lace and all that she
overcame in her life. From the stuttering as a child to the
humiliation as a teenager to become a PHD and curator of the
Botanical Garden. Pierce, however, goes through his change
during the pages of the book. He comes to terms with there
being other things in life besides celebrity and knowing
that he really didn't do it for himself but for his father.
He also healed his relationship with his brother. The
storyline flowed easily and is the kind of book that you
can't put down until it's done. A great way to while away
the hours and get lost in a truly great story. ALL OUT OF
LOVE will delight the reader and have them coming back for
For years, a small group of women in Cupid, TX, led by
Millie Greenway, have taken it upon themselves to keep the
Cupid legend alive. Now Millie has roped her four
disbelieving granddaughters into joining the cause.
Lace Bettingfield knows for a fact that the Cupid legend is
bogus. As a shy sixteen–year–old, she left a
letter at the statue and got nothing in return but heaps of
embarassment when her letter ended up printed in the school
newspaper. But now the boy she longed for is back in town
and Lace can't help wondering...what if?
