FOOLISH GAMES by Karen Wiesner

Peter Samuels lost his wife Lydia about a year ago. Because of the close relationship they had the grief has been overwhelming. He feels so lost because he can't reach out and touch her or talk to her. He also has two children to raise on his own. Kimberly Wolfe was one of Lydia's best friends. She not only works for Peter but has loved him from afar for as long as she can remember. For the past year she has helped Peter deal with the loss of his wife and helped him with the kids. But she's also afraid. Because of the past experience with her domineering father she's afraid Peter might behave the same way. Will she be able to get past her fears and find a chance at happiness with the man she's loved forever?

I really enjoyed Foolish Games. You journey with Peter as he deals with trying to move on after the loss of his wife and also begins dealing with growing feelings toward Kimberly. As the reader you truly feel his struggle. The honesty of Peter's thoughts touched my heart. He was a great hero. Kimberly is also trying to work through past issues concerning her father but finding it very hard. I know that in reality some do hold on to their anger even when they know it's wrong. We also find a secondary story going on with Peter's sister, Samantha. Her father is asking her to befriend Ryder Feldmann, a young man he's counseling and a man she's afraid to be around. What happens to them is the set up to the next book in the series. Foolish Games is the third book in the Family Heirlooms Series. A thank you goes to the author for providing this complimentary copy for my review.
