Sometimes it sucked being the oldest.
Griffin had been the oldest of five kids, and even as an adult, those traits still stuck. Responsible. Reliable. Always taking care of others.
Moving into an apartment in old Victorian home, he longed to expand his custom home refinishing business, but found himself still taking care of others. The older woman who owned the building. The eccentric neighbors on the first floor. And the woman who lived across from him. Especially her. She was tempting but too free-spirited for her own good.
Sometimes it sucked being the youngest.
Caitlyn McBride had been the youngest of six kids, and even as an adult, she still felt like the last one to experience life. Teaching in a high school and living in an apartment in an old Victorian home, she was finally living the life she envisioned. Almost. The grumpy new neighbor across the hall was seriously cutting into her joy.
But things in the old home are not always what they seem and the two have to join forces to keep their home,and themselves safe.
Wow—this Can’t be the last in Hope Series
I loved this book, there is Romance along with all the misunderstandings of beginning relationships, mystery because the characters are sneaky and suspense because this book has you turning pages to keep up with all the scenarios at each characters workplace, home life and their personalities.
I really want the series to continue but there will be more from this author. I have read every series and just love them all.
Romance, suspense and mystery
High school teacher Caitlyn is the last single McBride sibling and has had her fair share of blind dates and firsts dates and just wants to find a guy worthy of a second or third date.
Capella Construction owner Griffin gets off on the wrong foot when he first meets Caitlyn and really has to work to to correct a bad first (second and third) impression.
I love this final book in the Hope City series. There is a bit of suspense and mystery and oh so many red herrings. I was definitely kept guessing right up until the end.
“Heroes are everyday people, going about their everyday business, who step in and do something extraordinary for someone else.”
I’m a little sad to see the series come to an end but look forward to discovering more books by these authors.
