Publisher Comments:

Claire Bradford needed a wake-up call.

What she didn't need was a tragic car accident. As a single mom and the owner of a successful bead shop, Claire leads a predictable life in Hope's Crossing, Colorado. So what if she has no time for romance? At least, that's what she tells herself, especially when her best friend's sexy younger brother comes back to town as the new chief of police.

But when the accident forces Claire to slow down and lean on others—especially Riley McKnight—she realizes, for the first time, that things need to change. And not just in her own life. The accident—and the string of robberies committed by teenagers that led up to it—is a wake-up call to the people of Hope's Crossing. The sense of community and togetherness had been lost during those tough years. But with a mysterious "Angel of Hope" working to inspire the town, Riley and Claire will find themselves opening up to love and other possibilities by the end of an extraordinary summer….

Review:

"Thayne's series starter introduces the Colorado town of Hope's Crossing in what can best be described as a cozy romance. Hope's Crossing's new police chief, Riley McKnight, sees earnest single mom Claire Bradford as a nosy do-gooder, though Claire secretly wishes she could be as willing to take risks on her own behalf — such as approaching Riley, who sets her body sizzling — as she is to help others. Back in town after 15 years away, Riley has a very respectable law enforcement résumé, but some residents can't let go of bitter memories of his adolescent bad boy antics. He's also Claire's best friend's baby brother, and thinks of Claire as family rather than as someone to romance. Miscues aplenty ultimately resolve themselves in this gentle, easy read.
