For Quinn Collins, buying the flower shop in downtown Harbor Pointe fulfills a childhood dream, but also gives her the chance to stick it to her mom, who owned the store before skipping town twenty years ago and never looking back. Completing much-needed renovations, however, while also competing for a prestigious flower competition with her mother as the head judge, soon has Quinn in over her head. Not that she'd ever ask for help.Luckily, she may not need to. Quinn's father and his meddling friends find the perfect solution in notorious Olympic skier Grady Benson, who had only planned on passing through the old-fashioned lakeside town. But when a heated confrontation leads to property damage, helping Quinn as a community-service sentence seems like the quickest way out--and the best way to avoid more negative press.Quinn finds Grady reckless and entitled; he thinks she's uptight and too regimented. Yet as the two begin to hammer and saw, Quinn sees glimpses of the vulnerability behind the bravado, and Grady learns from her passion and determination, qualities he seems to have lost along the way. But when a well-intentioned omission has devastating consequences, Grady finds himself cast out of town--and Quinn's life--possibly forever. Forced to face the hurt holding her back, Quinn must finally let go or risk missing out on the adventure of a lifetime.Includes discussion questions....

Just Let Go (Harbor Pointe #2) Reviews
JUST LET GO is, I think, the first book I read by Courtney Walsh and I'm intrigued enough by it that I am going to look up her previous books--or at least the ones in this series: Just Look Up (I think that is all in this series, I may be wrong.)
I absolutely LOVED the host of secondary characters. Betsy with her sweet, shy personality and her wild hair, the Sheriff and Judge, best friends, firm, yet quirky, and numerous others.
At first I wasn't sure about Quinn and Grady -- Grady is rather expl ...more
Courtney Walsh is one of those authors that leaves a lasting impression on a reader’s thoughts, as well as touches the heart and soul. Walsh captures the attention of her readers with deep and heart wrenching topics being discussed within her novel, Just Let Go. This story is about friendship and finding true and lasting romance. It’s about overcoming past mistakes and striving to become a better person. From page one, West brings to life her relatable characters and their stories from the pages ...more
I love watching the Olympics and often wonder about the high-profiled lives some of those athletes lead--especially the ones who are the rebels. Grady finds himself stuck in small-town Michigan one winter and the timing couldn't be worse. It's do or die with his career and a judge decides he needs to learn a lesson. The small-town feels and quirkiness really shine through and it was fun to see all of that through Grady's eyes.
It's so enjoyable to watch a character soften, become more likable, an ...more
Courtney Walsh invites readers back to the small tourist town of Harbor Point, Michigan in her June release.
While Brooks and Lane make appearances, but this story is all about Grady and Quinn. Two people who are worlds apart and, at first glance, complete opposites.
Grady is a world-famous alpine skier, intent on winning gold at the next Olympics. Quinn has spent her entire life in Harbor Point, content running the local flower shop. But both of these characters hold so tightly to a goal, they’ve ...more
Just Let Go is a story of opposites attracts and of letting go of the past. Quinn is as steadfast as anyone can be. She is dependable; her friends can set their watches by her, reliable, and not a risk taker and maybe just a bit boring. She has just purchased her flower shop that is tied to her past and her dreams of her future. She has one goal, and that goal is to somehow get the attention of the mother who abandoned her family.
Grady on the other hand is reckless and a danger seeker. He is an ...more
I fell in love with this book. as always Walsh has given us a sweet romance that we will not soon forget.
I am not a ski slop person, but the flower shop was right up my alley.
I loved the tension and the happily ever after.
All I can say is this is a must read 4 star book that I recommend.

I've read all of Courtney's novels and I think this is among the best! I loved the characters and Harbor Pointe made me think a little bit of Stars Hollow (Gilmore Girls). The town really came alive for me and I could picture the shops and the unique characters sprinkled throughout the story. I loved the mismatched relationship between Quinn and Grady and the way their stories developed throughout the book.
Put this one on your summer reading list!
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from th ...more
Courtney Walsh takes us back to Harbor Pointe the location of her first novel in this series, Just Look Up. In book two we see Ryan and Lane the main characters in Just Look Up, and meet Grady the Olympic skiier and local Harbor Pointe resident Quinn who has just acquired the flower shop.
Both Grady and Quinn have a past that they need to move on from. It's like they are cemented in time and can't get beyond what has happened to them, and seem afraid to try. Quinn is rooted in her small town and ...more
