If a stranger told you something about your husband, who would you believe?
Doting mother, loving wife, dedicated caretaker of the historic Covered Bridge Inn at Tansy Falls – Connie always has a smile on her face for everyone, from the crabbiest guest to the floppy-eared resident dog Boomer. If only her friends knew the pain that grin was hiding.
Connie and Nate have been married for years, and Connie always thought they’d be together until the end. But lately it feels like Nate has given up trying – forgetting her birthday, pulling away from her hugs and spending long hours on the golf course, leaving Connie alone in the big empty silence of the house. Lonely and bored, she pours her heart out to their new lodger – broad-shouldered, dark-haired James. He’s recently been through a divorce himself and feels like her only friend in the world right now.
Then Connie’s sweet son comes home, sobbing out a terrible confession – one that could land him in trouble with the law, or worse – just as a secret that Nate’s been hiding from everyone literally turns up on their doorstep. As the pressure mounts at the Inn and at home, the foundations of the perfect life Connie has built for herself begin to crack. Can Connie and Nate withstand what he’s kept from her? And how will she help her beloved son? When Connie promised to stay together for better or worse she never expected anything like this…

Fun, easy read! Delightful!
A unemployed husband who is distant and definitely hiding something. A father with a new young girlfriend. A son who is in trouble. A demanding job. What else could go wrong in Connie Austen’s life?
His name is James Ortiz. He’s charismatic, charming and obviously attracted to Connie. After Nate, her husband of 20 years, forgets her birthday, she longs for attention. Meanwhile a press weekend at The Covered Bridge Inn, where Connie is the manager, threatens to go spectacularly wrong. Connie faces many choices. Her decisions will change her live forever.
I could live in Tansy Falls. It’s a charming location for this delightful novel. The characters are well drawn, the plot is fast paced and the mood veers from sadness to laugh out loud humor. This is a fun, easy read and it deserves 5 stars.
