A hometown hero that’s suffering a personal crisis. A single-mom who’s finally back on her feet. And the what-ifs they finally have a chance of seeing come true.

A year after her divorce, Chelsea Lewis spends most of her days working part-time at her cousin’s bakery and hiding veggies in her picky son’s lunches. Then she reconnects with an old friend who helps Chelsea in all the ways she’s forgotten she needs—including romantic ones.

Former football player, DJ Kaiser, is back in his hometown, working as a fireman to serve his community, but after nearly burning down his own house with a barbeque and wrecking the Chief’s truck, his mistakes are stacked against him—until he sets out to ease the stress of Chelsea’s load. Serving her has him feeling like a hero again.

When Chelsea’s ex shows up and begs Chelsea to move closer so his young son doesn’t grow up without his father, Chelsea and DJ have to consider what’s best for Chelsea’s little family, even if that means sacrificing the relationship that has saved them both.

My Review: 5 Stars

Being a mom is hard work, but it's especially hard for newly single mom, Chelsea. Her two year old, Austin, has reverted back to not eating or sleeping with his dad gone. As a mother myself, I loved reading about Chelsea's attempts to parent and to feel adequate enough to fill both shoes.

Since the divorce, Chelsea is back in her small Wyoming hometown and I adore small town settings! Chelsea works for her cousin, who is trying to get a treat business off the ground, and the results made me hungry. I also had to admire the desires to create something new, but similar, to offer the town of Clay.

Chelsea and her ex-husband had a good friend, DJ, and his role in the story is absolutely heartwarming. I love that he tries so hard to make life better than before he came into the picture, yet he isn't perfect. He's one sweet, genuine, and lovable man!

This story is a great feel-good romp through the summer fields of second chances and I loved it!
