Synopsis: Willow is taking a break from her hectic modelling career to manage her parent's B&B until the permanent manager arrives. As luck would have it, her ex, Corbin, has come to town to recouperate from a shoulder injury. Their breakup wasn't a happy one and neither is seeing him. Corbin, on the other hand, is not at all unhappy to see Willow again and is very interested in mending broken fences. When his little niece cunningly recruits them both to help her solve a family mystery, he's more than happy to join on. Willow just needs to get through the next few months and then she can get out of town and get Corbin out of her life once and for all.
Review: Becky Wade makes it so easy to love her characters and to want them to get their HEA. This is a great addition to the Bradford Sisters series. They are out in force and play a key roles in this installment. They are a wonderful support to Willow. Equal parts romance and mystery, Becky does a fabulous job of interweaving them together. You get just as caught up in solving young Charlotte's case as you do in Corbin and Willow's relationship. Both are complicated and just unpredictable enough to keep you interested. Corbin is a good hero. Willow is a good heroine. They have a complicated past that isn't glossed over. Rather, they deal with it slowly and believably. There is a spiritual element but it's not particularly preachy or religious. A superb treatment of overcoming past sins, accepting divine forgiveness, and enjoying a fresh beginning.
I was given an ARC to review.
