Love is in the air in Cobble Creek—for everyone but Anthony Marino. Month after month the owner of Tony’s Diner watches happy couples stroll through that bell-chiming door, and he can’t help but wonder if it will ever be him. The winds shift drastically in his favor when Kira Moretti rings that very same bell. During a childhood visit to Cobble Creek, the outgoing girl pegged him with his first kiss. When she sets those brown eyes on him years later, he’s pleased to find the feelings are still there. But is Kira here to stay, or does she—like the other women in Anthony’s past—have her eyes set on a different life?

It’s no surprise that Kira Moretti has an imperfect past that soiled the family name. So when Grandpa Moretti leaves his Cobble Creek photography studio to her in his will, Kira’s determined to prove herself worthy. Cobble Creek is just as charming as she remembered, and even better—so is the handsome guy from Tony’s Diner. Chemistry between them sparks fast, and soon Kira’s certain she’s right where she needs to be. But when someone from her past shows, offering long-sought redemption, Kira has to make a choice. Stay with the man she’s just fallen in love with, or take the offer and risk losing him forever.  
My Review: 5 Stars
Kira has a chance to redeem herself by accepting her grandfather's photo studio when he passes away. She appears to be humbled and ready to work hard and a chance to reconnect with a childhood friend, Anthony, proves to be just what the doctor ordered.
The immediate connection was satisfying because these two have a past and I loved watching the flames spark up. Kira is outgoing and impulsive, while Anthony is more shy and tentative, but they balance each other perfectly as they navigate a new future, and especially while they sift through their past issues. 
I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again--Cobble Creek is a very soothing, comforting place and I love my time spent there. I love seeing characters from other books make appearances and I love getting to know a few new residents at a time. 
THE SNAPSHOT BRIDE tugged on my heartstrings more than a few times and I finished with a tear in my eye. A happy tear, of course. Kimberly Krey has the magic touch of telling a sweet, romantic tale that is full of emotion.
