Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Samantha Henry, it took a ten-year absence to appreciate the close-knit New England town with an appeal all its own....

 

After a perfect storm of events leaves Sam high, dry, and jobless, she has to head home to Harvest Cove to regroup. Growing up, she was the town misfit, and a brief high school romance that resulted in heartbreak made her realize she was never going to fit in. But now with the support of her mother and an unexpected circle of allies, Sam starts to wonder if shes misjudged the town all these years.

 

Lifes been good to Jake Smith. He transitioned from popular jock to town veterinarian without any trouble. But Sams homecoming makes him question his choices. The sharp-tongued beauty was never a good fit for the small community, but hes never forgotten her—or how good they were together. While she makes it clear shes not about to repeat the past, Jakes determined to convince her to give him—and Harvest Cove—a second chance. 

Synopsis:

Lucy Lang isn't looking for fireworks… 

She's looking for a nice, decent man. Someone who'll mow the lawn, flip chicken on the barbecue, teach their future children to play soccer. But most important: someone who won't inspire the slightest stirring in her heart…or anywhere else. A young widow, Lucy can't risk that kind of loss again. But sharing her life with a cat named Fat Mikey and the Black Widows at the family bakery isn't enough either. So it's goodbye to Ethan, her hot but entirely inappropriate "friend with privileges," and hello to a man she can marry. 

Too bad Ethan Mirabelli isn't going anywhere. As far as he's concerned, what she needs might be right under her nose. But can he convince her that the next best thing can really be forever?
