Chelsea Wyatt, a single mom trying to build a life for her and her son, is sick of the body she sees in the mirror. A daily diet of Cookie Crisp cereal is not doing wonders for her mood or her figure, and it’s time for a change. Setting out to get fit, she commits herself to a daily walking plan, forcing herself to give up her all-sugar and carb diet, a difficult task at her donut obsessed job.
But her plan goes sideways when a stumble on the ice puts her in the arms of Jay, an attractive young man out on a run. They grab coffee together, and Chelsea finds herself thinking about him long after their short meeting. The thought of dating again hadn’t crossed her mind in years, and she doesn’t even know if Jay is available, or if he would be interested in her despite her unfit body.
Just when she has a handle on her new routine, her past catches up with her, throwing her blossoming relationship with Jay and the rest of her life into chaos. Can Chelsea hold onto the people she loves most, or will a wrong turn set her up for failure?
This is book 2 of the Pastime Pursuits series, and can be read as a stand-alone novel.
I recently read/reviewed Tracy Krimmer’s novel, “Caching In”. So, I was very excited to be able to move on quickly to the next story in her “Pastime Pursuits” Series. I am sure you will feel the same way.
In “Caching In”, we are introduced to Chelsea Wyatt. She is not the most likable character, as she was dating a man in another relationship…and, she was the other woman. But, I LOVED HER! She was very real. In “Caching In”, we find out that Chelsea is pregnant. Although, “Jay Walking” could definitely be a standalone novel.
This story is all about Chelsea. She is raising her son James on her own. When the story begins, Chelsea decides that she is not happy with her body, and she is going to walk off the pounds.
While out for a walk, she literally falls in to the arms of Jay. Hence the wonderfully appropriate name for this novel. (I love Tracy’s covers and titles)
Jay is a doctor and has a ton of awesome qualities, so it was hard for Chelsea not to fall for him. But, is there even the possibility of a relationship there?
Tracy Krimmer can certainly deliver great chick lit stories. I highly recommend her books.
(Tracy also inspires you to want to get up an exercise…great “side effect” LOL)
