One Wish by Robyn Carr
A Thunder Point Novel
Grace is the owner of the flower shop in Thunder Point, Oregon. What nobody knows is that she was an Olympic gold medalist figure skater before leaving that world behind. She's just started dating high school teacher Troy and is debating whether to tell him about her past when her past comes to threaten her. Now she has no choice but to reveal her secret to not only Troy but also to others in her town.
I picked up this book to read after reading a review of it. Unfortunately, I don't quite agree with the review. I thought the characters and a few plot points stretched credulity a little. It doesn't seem possible that someone as famous as Grace supposedly was would be able to completely hide her identity simply by going by her middle name. Someone would have recognized her. Also, the great menace was too simply resolved and then forgiven for it to be believable. I also thought the introduction of character of the next book in the series was a little awkward.
