For bookstore owner Lydia White, another geographical move doesn’t faze her. She doesn’t even bat an eyelash at one more curveball thrown into her life plan. Five years running from a man who broke her heart, and her spirit, has taught her to keep her walls up.
Scared to trust again, Lydia swears to keep all men off limits. Even Aaron Casey, who seems too perfect to be true. With a daughter to protect and a life to build, she simply can’t afford to let her guard down.
But when William Davis, a seventy-something recovering alcoholic, steps into Lydia’s bookstore for the first time, holding the secret to saving both of their lives, she might have to learn that trusting a man with her life is just as dangerous as trusting one with her heart.

Once again, L Lynn Bailey gives us a story that draws us in and holds us until the last line. She has a way of writing that gives an insight to her soul. I love the sweetness of the relationships in Lilies on Main, not just between Lydia and Ethan, with all the characters in the Granite Harbor. Bailey gives us heartbreaking situations we can relate to then uses humor to lighten the mood. Her writing is honest, vulnerable and beautiful. Bailey is a storyteller that shows the dirty secrets we bear while giving us hope. *I was given an advanced copy in return for my honest review.
*I received this book as an arc in exchange for an honest review. I'm so not ready for this series to end!!! Shhh, don't tell, but I think Lilies on Main was my favorite of the series. I was so obsessed once I started, that I did not put it down. Luckily my kids are old enough to fend for themselves since mama was busy! "I don't write love notes. And I'm not quite sure if this qualifies as one, but whatever our future has for us, I'm in. I'm in forever." Swoon!! Aaron stole my heart for a little while. Lydia and Aaron's story had it all. Playing hard to get, chemistry (the kind that gives you goosebumps), past hurts, fear of falling, a precious little girl, and some secrets from the past that came back to finish things. You MUST read this one! It's a romantic page turner that gives you a chance to check up on some of your other favorites from Granite Harbor. I really need to be friends with this group. Adding Maine to my bucket list. Thank you J. Lynn Bailey for another perfect summer read.
Lilies on Main is another beautiful and emotional love story set in small town Granite Harbor, Maine. I absolutely adored everything about this book! I went through so many emotions reading Lydia and Aaron’s story. To say Lydia has been put through the emotional wringer is an understatement, but what I love about her was her strength to keep going, especially for her daughter Lilly’s sake. And then we have Aaron, his ability to love was absolutely swoon-worthy. He has had his eyes on Lydia ever since she moved into town, but because of her past Lydia has put up walls and her fears to trust again is too real. But when opportunities presents themselves to spend time with each other, Aaron was all in. Slowly the walls start to crumble and Lydia allows herself to let go of the past and learn to trust again. The patience that Aaron had and the absolute adoration he felt towards both Lydia and Lilly was breathtaking. The secondary characters were all simply amazing. Lilly was a beautiful child, inside and out. The joy she brought to everyone around her and her ability to empathize for someone so young was truly awe-inspiring. And William Davis, he becomes so integral to everyone’s lives. If this book was truly the final book in the Granite Harbor series, everyone in this fictional town will be sorely missed. Another fantastic 5-star read!
