Avery Hart is beginning to believe her dream of a bakery/cafe just might come true. She is converting her family's old bar to that dream with the help of a local contractor, Trace Hutton. Trace is an ex-con who bid as low as he could go for this project to get the business and help prove he is no longer the "bad boy" he was growing up. His brother is the local deputy sheriff, and his dad is suffering from dementia; being gone for eight years in prison just adds to his guilt.
She moved back to her home town after a bitter divorce to start over. She lives with her Aunt Phoebe and sister Delaney until her apartment above the store is ready. What she hadn't anticipated was the strong attraction between her and Trace. Judging by the looks and random touches, he feels the same.
Trace's life is ruled by work and his father's Dr's appointments and occasional wanderings. His brother, Zane, helps along with his grandmother, Pearl, but there doesn't seem to be enough time for anything. But the cafe and Avery are his anchor, and he's falling fast. He is keeping some secrets and when a man from his past enters their lives his presence causes heartbreaking consequences.
Trace and Avery pull you into their emotions and you want them to have their happy ending. The romance is hot, the story keeps you interested, and there's some great laughs. I recommend this romantic contemporary and will be looking for more from Ms. Jordan.
