Frankie understands the inner workings of clocks and pianos--but dating? Well, that's a bit more complicated.
Looking to move on after his wife's death, Dr. Logan Wells relocates his optometry practice to Wyoming, home of his favorite childhood memories. By doing so, he incurs the wrath of his former mother-in-law who threatens to sue for custody of his ten-year-old daughter, Harper. Despite the lawsuit hanging over him, Logan is determined to find joy for the two of them as they settle in the idyllic small town of Cobble Creek.

Local business owner, Frankie Lawson knows the inner workings of clocks and pianos, but not those of her own heart. She's never been one to shy away from a project--unless that project is a romantic relationship for herself. A pro matchmaker of antiques and owners, she tries her hand at fixing up Dr. Wells with an old friend. The trouble begins when she realizes she's made the wrong match and Logan was meant for her.
My Review: 4.5 Stars

I've taken an interest in home decorating lately because I'm tired of my house and want a change. My sister and I were trying to figure out what our "styles" are and I loved reading about Frankie and her upcycling career. I wish she could come and give me advice. I was fascinated by her easy-going character and the interesting work that she does.

Frankie is determined to set Dr. Logan up with every single woman she knows, but there is a spark of interest between the two of them that she seems oblivious to. I adored Harper, his daughter, and especially loved the relationship that she builds with Frankie.

Sometimes what you want is right under your nose and there is always the danger of having a case of too-little-too-late. I found myself cheering Frankie on in her struggles, especially in the romance department and loved the journey she embarks on with Logan and Harper. This is the perfect, sweet romance.

Cobble Creek has stolen my heart, even though I have no desire to live in Wyoming. I love this charming, Western town and the inhabitants who reside there. See you soon, Cobble Creek!
