Marcus Temple escaped his despised birthplace, driven by his passion for music. Now a sophisticated, world-class cellist, he must return when his mother suffers a severe stroke. Going back also means dealing with the woman whose heart he broke when he left—Mattie Bendixon.
More comfortable in overalls than orchestra seats, Mattie's childhood dreams were simple—working for her grandfather's construction company and building a life with Marcus. His ambitions forced her to abandon one goal, and now her beloved company is also under threat.
Mattie thinks she sees a way to save Bendixon and Sons—if she can convince Marcus to stay in his hated hometown for one month. All she has to risk is her heart.
Fantastic start to this series
This is the second book I’ve read by Brenda Margriet and I loved it just as much as Chef d’ Amour. Allegro Court is the second chance romance between Marcus and Mattie. She has loved him for over half her life. He left Prince George when he was fifteen to attend school. He hasn’t visited more than a dozen times or so during that time. When his mom has a stroke, his only thought is to have her placed in a home, so he can get back to his life and music career as a cellist. Mattie dares him or bets him he can’t stay in town for a month. I won’t leave any spoilers, but I recommend this fantastic book to everyone that loves a good second chance romance. I can’t wait to read Jo and Camryn’s stories, when they are released.
