What would bring you happiness in a world that was suddenly empty?

For Lucy Crane, the answer is simple: her daughter. When her husband is killed in a tragic accident, Lucy loses her desire to live, but only one thing keeps her going – her unborn daughter. Focusing on being a mother helps Lucy cope with her loss, but kids grow up and they leave home, eventually. Eighteen years after losing her first and only love, Lucy is faced with the opportunity to find the happiness for which she’s always longed. Her own fears become her worst enemies as she learns how to embrace love once again.

Evan Donovan is also facing his own struggles. Forced to retire from the FDNY because of lung damage caused by 9/11, Evan moves to upstate New York where he hopes to find a little peace and quiet. Old habits die hard, and Evan’s hero complex and survivor’s guilt constantly remind him of how difficult it is to be vulnerable. But for the first time in his life, he’s tired of being alone.

Drawing strength from one another, Lucy and Evan discover how beautiful it is to let love be a part of their lives.

What reviewers had to say:

“Let Love Be was a fantastic surprise for me – a gorgeous, sexy, heartfelt story about two people who have suffered losses and endured heartbreak in their past. I absolutely fell in love with Evan and even Lucy a little bit and devoured is book! Melissa Collins is a new author to me and has now become a favorite.” -Amazon customer and reviewer

“I loved Evan and Lucy! They were both amazing characters who showed so much compassion and strength that it astounded me. This author has a way of writing characters that you can feel their pain, happiness, joy, and everything else that they go through. Evan was amazing, sweet, and I highly recommend this book, series and author!” -Brianna, Amazon reviewer

“How refreshing to read a book about a couple who are actually in my age group and have issues that I feel like I could relate to. I’m writing this review on the 13th anniversary of 9/11 so it is very reflective to write about a firefighter who has issues pertaining to that event in our history.” -Michelle, Amazon reviewer
