If you build it, love will come…to Hope's Crossing.

Alexandra McKnight prefers a life of long workdays and If you build it, love will come…short-term relationships, and she's found it in Hope's Crossing. A sous chef at the local ski resort, she's just been offered to Hope's Crossing. her dream job at an exclusive new restaurant being built in town. But when it comes to designing the kitchen, Alex finds herself getting up close and personal with construction foreman Sam Delgado….

At first glance, Sam seems perfect for Alex. He's big, tough, gorgeous—and in town for only a few weeks. But when Sam suddenly moves into a house down the road, Alex suspects that the devoted single father of a six-year-old boy wants more from her than she's willing to give. Now it's up to Sam to help Alex see that, no matter what happened in her past, together they can build something more meaningful in Hope's Crossing.

Review:

"Readers turned off by explicit romance will appreciate Thayne's refreshingly tame fourth Hope's Crossing contemporary (after Sweet Laurel Falls). Executive chef Alexandra McKnight is about to open her first restaurant but must rely on building contractor Sam Delgado to help make her dream a reality. Through an innocent exploration of friendship, they realize that their difficult pasts have prepared them for a happy future. With a fully developed cast of supporting characters, it's easy to become immersed in the admittedly stock plot and get carried away to a realistically imperfect small town. The romance between Alex and Sam focuses on the sensuality of two people getting to know each other emotionally rather than sheer physicality — though there's certainly a touch of spice. Thayne reins in both heartbreak and tenderness; readers might sniffle at a few points, but they won't sob. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
