Fans of Jill Mansell, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts and Marie Force will fall head over heels for the new Cedar Ridge series from New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis, featuring her trademark gift for humour, warmth and romance.
What do you do when you run into the man who broke your heart?
Lily's been back in Cedar Ridge for less than ten minutes when she bumps into Aidan, the former love of her life. So much for sneaking back into town unnoticed. And thanks to frizzy hair and armfuls of junk food, she's turning his head for all the wrong reasons.
No one knows why Lily is home after ten years, and she's determined to stay no longer than the summer. But Cedar Ridge and Aidan have other ideas. As they set about persuading Lily to give them a second chance, she finds herself falling under the spell of the Colorado mountains ... and the one man she could never forget.

Shalvis knows all the right buttons to push with characters Lily Danville and Aiden Kincaid, a junk-food junkie and a former not-really-so-bad boy who share a hometown and a history of poor choices. Lily is fired from a tony San Diego beauty salon by her unscrupulous boss and forced to go back home to Cedar Ridge, Colo., to regroup, until she can find another job and escape the small town again. Lily is a beautiful everywoman as she binges on convenience store snack foods and encounters Aiden at the worst possible moment. It may have been 10 years since the death of Lily's sister, Ashley, but Lily is still grieving, and the last thing she wants is to spend time with the guy Ashley had a big crush on. But Aiden, now a firefighter and a hero of the civilian group Search and Rescue, has always carried a torch for Lily, and he has no intention of letting her get away again. The flubs and flaws are hilarious, the grief feels credible, and the sparks fly in this solid, light romance from the always-reliable Shalvis.
