Memphis Ward arrives in Quincy, Montana, on the fifth worst day of her life. She needs a shower. She needs a snack. She needs some sanity. Because moving across the country with her newborn baby is by far the craziest thing she’s ever done.
But maybe it takes a little crazy to build a good life. If putting the past behind her requires a thousand miles and a new town, she’ll do it if it means a better future for her son. Even if it requires setting aside the glamour of her former life. Even if it requires working as a housekeeper at The Eloise Inn and living in an apartment above a garage.
It’s there, on the fifth worst day of her life, that she meets the handsomest man she’s ever laid eyes on. Knox Eden is a beautiful, sinful dream, a chef and her temporary landlord. With his sharp, stubbled jaw and tattooed arms, he’s raw and rugged and everything she’s never had—and never will. Because after the first worst day of her life, Memphis learned a good life requires giving up on her dreams too. And a man like Knox Eden will only ever be a dream.
Juniper Hill brings us back to Quincy Montana with Knox Eden and single mother Memphis Ward.. who is also a new employee. Memphis accepts a job at The Eloise and drives across country with her baby for a new start. Knox reluctantly agrees to allow Memphis to rent an apartment on his property and the chemistry between them can be felt from the first meeting. I fell right into this book although at one point I did want to put it in the freezer! Let me explain, after everything they had both been through I was happy to see things workout and I didn’t want the coming struggle or plot twist for them. I just wanted to suspend the moment and allow them to remain happy. But the book did not go in the freezer and Devney thankfully did not draw it out. I completely enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the one in the series.
A genuinely good book, 3.5 stars.
I got this book because everyone on tik tok was recommending it. My opinion is small compared to all of the book influencers talking about it. I enjoyed but it felt generic. A lot of small town romance books are the same. However the characters made up for the lack luster plot. I loved Knox and Memphis’s story. Baby Drake was cute. And the Eden family was something I wanted to be a part of while reading this story. 3.5 stars just cause I wasn’t kept fully present in the story.
A cute light read
Took a break from fantasy and Fae this was such a cute story even though I wish the tragic parts were longer and there was more depth to the romance but it was really cute
