Review — “Reluctant Hope” by Erin Dutton

Bold Strokes Books
June 2011
288 pages

Songwriter Brooke Donahue’s best friend, Diane, just died of cancer. Brooke is still full of unexpressed grief and anger and wants nothing to do with Diane’s support group or anything else related to cancer.

To honor Diane, she participates in a fundraiser for cancer research and has to work with Addison Hunt, a survivor of breast cancer. Even before Diane’s death, Brooke closed herself off, afraid to let herself feel too deeply, and now she doesn’t want to fall in love with someone she might end up losing.

The author took a bit of a risk with the ending, but I really liked it and thought it was perfect for the book.
