Review - It Happened One Night by Lisa Dale
Title: It Happened One Night
Author: Lisa Dale
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Rating: You Gotta Read

Sometimes love finds you when you least expect it.
Lana Biel has always wanted to shake the dust of Vermont off her feet and see the world, one exotic country after another. But when a lighthearted spring fling changes her life forever, she turns to the one man whose strong shoulders can lighten any burden: her best friend, Eli Ward.
Eli has always been there for Lana--after all, that's what best friends do. But Lana isn't the only one hiding something. Eli is keeping secrets of his own that threaten their relationship. Yet as summer turns to fall, new desires awaken between them, even as old fears tear them apart. Then, when another Vermont winter fills the valleys with snow, Eli and Lana are given the chance for an adventure greater than they ever dreamed possible...and a love that will last for all time.
It Happened One Night was one of the best books I have read yet. The characters seemed so real and the subject matter was spot on for these characters. The one thing I noticed that I just LOVED was that the sister Karin had such a strong voice in this story. The problems she faced were problems that we deal with in real life every day. How she dealt with them was inspiring. My heart just broke when something divided the bond between Lana and Eli. And Eli's girlfriend Kelly, well let's just say that I wasn't too fond of her character but I loved the fireworks that came about by her actions.
I have never read any of Ms. Dale's work before but I have now become a loyal fan. I can't wait to read more of her work. Ms. Dale has a way of writing characters with so many dimensions that they grab a hold of you and don't let go. I have no doubt that no matter who buys this book, you will love it and become a fan of her writing style and subject matter. Outstanding work Ms. Dale!
