First, he ghosted her. Now, he has a proposition…
Taryn Lawson needs more customers in her bakery to prove she’s capable of taking over the family business. The summer fair is the perfect opportunity to jump-start her vision with a specialized booth showcasing her creative desserts. Despite her fierce work ethic, she needs help to build her booth in time. Unfortunately, the only person available is the handsome attorney who played with her heart last Christmas.
Trial attorney Garrett Andrews regrets not contacting the pretty baker he dated during his last holiday vacation. But he had his reasons and is finally ready to make amends. When he returns to town for his sister’s wedding, Garrett gets his second chance when Taryn needs help building her booth.
Working together reignites the spark, but Taryn is aware the clock is ticking. Will they realize what they have is special before it’s too late, or will their second chance at love once again slip through their fingers?
McClone's scrumptious second Silver Falls romance (after The Christmas Window) finds Taryn Lawson working to prove to her distrusting father that she's the best person to run her family's bakeshop. But a rival bakery, which seems to have access to the Lawson recipes and marketing plan, is undercutting Lawson's prices and stealing customers, making Taryn's task that much harder. Her solution is to win best booth in Silver Falls's annual summer festival. But when she retrieves the booth's design elements from storage, they're ruined and she has just a matter of days to recreate them. Enter hotshot L.A. lawyer Garrett Andrews, who's back in town for his sister's wedding. Garrett and Taryn grew close over the Christmas holidays, and Taryn's furious at him for ghosting her upon his return to L.A. though it turns out he had a good reason. Garrett is the only one who has time to help Taryn rebuild, and the pair reconnect. But Garrett's visit has a built-in end date can their relationship survive another goodbye? Taryn's insecurities are as believable as the steadily building love between her and Garrett is convincing. With a surprising reveal of the bakery's saboteur, a heaping helping of stellar supporting characters, and a dash of small-town charm, this is a winning recipe for romance. \n
A Sweet and Lighthearted Romance!!
Garrett and Taryn are a sweet couple you will fall in love with immediately. The way Garrett stepped in to help Taryn with her project was so sweet. My favorite part though was when Nick was finally brought down to size. That was fun!! Also, the laugh out loud parts were GREAT!! I found myself smiling from beginning to the end of this story.
