One Date Deal (A Return to Snow Valley Romance) by Lucy McConnell {Review}

One-Date Deal (A Snow Valley Romance)
by Lucy McConnell
Kindle Edition, 148 pages
Published October 25th 2017 by Orchard View Publishing LLC

Veronica (Ronnie) Martin wasn’t planning on helping a stranded motorist on her way out of Snow Valley. But, as one of the small town’s two mechanics, she couldn’t leave a neighbor stranded. When that neighbor turns out to be Grady Owens, her older brother’s best friend and business partner on his way into town for a short visit. Ronnie’s long-time crush waves her over to the side of the road. Neither one of the small business owners has been back to Snow Valley in years. After a few minutes of flirting, Grady asks her out. Ronnie is ecstatic, until she realizes he doesn’t recognize her. She accepts his invitation, but when he finds out who she is and tries to cancel, she makes a one-date deal.

Grady Owens has been burning the candle at both ends for years to get a trucking business off the ground. He’s worn out and isolated by the long hours and lonely nights. Which is probably why he agreed to a one-date deal with Ronnie. But when he starts seeing her as more than his best friend’s little sister, he’s torn between loyalty to his business partner and the woman his heart says is his perfect match.  


My Review: 4 Stars

I used to wish I had an older brother, especially when I was a teenager, because just think of all the cute guys he'd bring home for me to crush on. Ronnie's crushed on her older brother best friend, Grady, for years and now that she's all grown up, they have a cute meet and make a one-date deal.

Ronnie is exactly opposite of me. She can do everything with cars and mechanics and while that makes her seem like a tomboy, she's got a very feminine side. She knows what she wants and goes after it with her whole heart, yet she's not overbearing in the least. Grady is torn between his best friend, this new love interest, and his business, but who can argue with the heart?

I love it when people grow up and realize what they've always wanted is right under their noses. I adore this sweet town of Sweet Valley and love getting to know it more with each book I read that takes place there. I'd move there in a heartbeat and watch all this drama unfold right before my very eyes if I could. These are great characters and the story is complete, even though it's on the shorter side.
