Focus on Love
by Candee Fick
From the back cover:
Free-spirited Elizabeth Foster turned her back on her father’s photography business to pursue musical theater, but a career on the stage remains second to a career behind the camera. The possibility of a one-show contract means she’s a few weeks from unemployment forcing her home, and her dreams of pursuing professional photography reemerge. With photography and theater opportunities unfolding before her, Elizabeth faces her biggest challenge yet—listening to her heart.
Meanwhile, sought-after photographer Ryan Callahan has put his career on hold to help his sister’s family, but the promise of a bigger assignment could lure him away so he can begin building a family of his own. With professional opportunities and personal obligations pulling at him, Ryan faces his toughest challenge—balancing family, relationships, and work.
If given the choice, what dreams would develop for Elizabeth and Ryan? And will they learn to trust each other enough to focus on love?

She is also the wife of a high school football coach and the mother of three children, including a daughter with a rare genetic syndrome.

What do you do when your dream is shot down and destroyed? Pick up the pieces and pursue a new one!
Focus on Love is a sweet romance which takes a good look at hopes and dreams as well as who gives us those dreams in the first place.
Liz has some hurts to resolve, and she definitely grows throughout the story. Ryan, on the other hand, seems almost too good to be true from the beginning. Diverse families and characters create interesting dynamics and some funny situations.
There are a few places where the background of the previous book (Dance Over Me) would help to make things clearer in Focus on Love. While this is not specifically a series, I would recommend reading Dance Over Me first.
Focus on Love made we want to pull out my camera and learn more! If you enjoy photography or sweet romances with hunky heroes in cowboy boots, you won’t want to miss this one.
