Maurie's dreams are finally coming true, but when Grant Shelton shows up at her doorstep, she discovers that she's left love out of the equation.

USA Today bestselling author Heather B. Moore welcomes you to Pine Valley!

When Maurie Ledbetter moves back to her hometown to open her dream shop, she calls a local construction crew for help. Former teenage crush Grant Shelton shows up on her front porch, answering the call for the construction job. Seeing Grant again brings back Maurie’s memories of her troubled childhood, and she doesn’t know if spending time around Grant is the best way to move on. But when she discovers Grant has gone through difficulties of his own, Maurie realizes that he might be the key to her own healing.  
My Review: 4.5 Stars

Thank you for welcoming me to Pine Valley with open arms, Ms. Moore! I love every minute I spend in this quaint, sweet town. I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but I always pictured this picturesque place to be found in the mountains of Idaho or Montana, but it's in California. Huh--who knew?! That changed things in my mind a little bit, but I still adored this sweet story of second chances.

Maurie and Grant knew each other when they were younger and Maurie had a very hard home life. Grant has been through a messy divorce and although they each have had trials in their lives, I loved seeing how they rose above them in good ways. Overcoming hardships isn't easy to do, especially in a classy and positive way. Taffy, Maurie's employee and friend, is a breath of fresh air and I'm hoping she gets her own story. Speaking of which, I love their jobs!

I adored how they each build upon what they had in the past. It's not awkward at all and the magnetic connection is almost immediate and real. Maurie and Grant have a true relationship and the way they embrace each other's difficulties, helping each other through them, is heartening, especially with Trent (Grant's young son) involved.

My only complaint is that I wanted some resolution with the ex-wife and wanted to know she was accepting of Grant's situation. Otherwise, this one is another winner in this set and I'm always hoping for more! 

Content: very mild language; mild romance
