Back Cover Blurb:
Right after a fire breaks out in her diner, a phone call changes Cherry Hill’s life. The tragic death of her cousin leaves Cherry sole guardian of her eight-year-old nephew. But the upper crust side of the Hill family deems her unfit and is determined to take Sam away from her. The only one on her side is the sexy sheriff, Taylor Johnson, the man who broke her heart nine years ago when he left town.
Taylor Johnson has sworn to protect the citizens of Broken Falls, but should that extend to a fake engagement to the woman who captured his heart so long ago? It doesn’t take long for his pretend feelings to turn real for both Cherry and her adorable nephew, Sam.
But Cherry’s been hiding a secret from Taylor that could rip this new family apart…
I enjoyed the way that Marts combines a second chance romance with a new start for her characters. It was a unique mix that lent extra complexity to their lives. Marts developed their personalities individually, creating two extremely well rounded people that I loved getting to know. At the same time, neither were perfect. I enjoyed the jagged edges that Marts not only leaves, but actually points out in her characters. It made them so much more real.
This was a fun and emotional second chance romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was my first novel by Marts, but it won’t be my last.
