<b>She's loved him all her life... but will he be there when she needs him the most?</b>
Disheartened and adrift after being written out of a hit TV show, actor Aidan Flaherty returns to his family’s historic winery, where he’s invested some of the fortune he’s made. As the holidays approach, Aidan becomes intrigued with the old showboat that’s dry-docked just east of town… and even more intrigued with the daughter of his former mentor, who now owns it. He decides to buy the boat and restore it to its former glory.
Single mom Holly Santos is back in River’s Edge after her divorce and she is over men in general and actors in particular. If she could only get rid of her father’s old showboat, a source of fascination for her son, Mateo. She never expects her old crush to walk into her tea shop or the fireworks that happen every time they’re in the same room.
Can Aidan convince her that he is determined to restore their shared heritage on the showboat and that he’s home to stay?
This story ha a little different feel to it - younger main characters with a preteen included, just to start. I won’t give spoilers but the story definitely wields it’s way to a happy ending! It felt very organic to the main characters.55
I had lots of fun reading this story. The characters are well developed and engaging and plenty of chemistry from beginning to the end. Storyline flowed smoothly. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.55
