Never Say Never by Lisa Wingate
Sometimes Life’s Storms Blow in Unexpected Possibilities
NEVER SAY NEVER
Kai Miller floats through life like driftwood tossed by waves. She’s never put down roots-and she doesn’t plan to. But when a chaotic hurricane evacuation lands her in Daily, Texas, she begins to think twice about her wayfaring existence. And when she meets hometown-boy Kemp Eldridge, she can almost picture settling down in Daily-until she discovers that he may be promised to someone else.
Daily has always been a welcoming place of refuge for those the wind blows in, but for Kai, it looks like it will be just another place to leave behind. Then again, Daily always has a few surprises in store-especially when Aunt Donetta Bradford has cooked up a scheme.

This is my first visit to Daily, Texas and I don’t believe that I will be returning. I could not get into this book. At first I thought that the beginning was just a little slow and it would pick up by the next few chapters, for me it never did. While I like bits & bobs of the book, I found places to be highly annoying, as were the characters.
Let me say that I do like Lisa Wingate as an author and have read and reread her Tending Roses series. I just found that Never Say Never was lacking that spark her other books have.
