"Just One Kiss is my favorite story in the series so far. Barbara Freethy has once again shown that she is an amazing storyteller. I could not put it down. I loved every page. Just One Kiss is a second chance at first love story and is filled with heartbreaking and heartwarming moments." Patti - Goodreads
Hannah Stark takes care of everyone else, from the patients she nurses back to health, to her family, who can never seem to get it together. She'd love to find someone she can trust, someone she can lean on, someone she can love, but that someone will not be Jake McKenna. The ruggedly attractive owner of Adventure Sports might still make her palms sweat, but Jake broke her teenage heart years ago.
In the twelve plus years since they were a couple, Jake has given up on forgiveness from Hannah. He'd really like the chance to set the record straight, but that would mean revealing secrets he has sworn to protect. So, they dance around each other, never getting close enough to the lingering sparks to start another fire.
A stormy Christmas eve at the lake changes everything. A woman in trouble and a death-defying rescue gives them a chance to start over as they are now—if they can find the courage to trust each other. Will these two enemies turn into lovers, or will they reject the fate that has once again thrown them together?
The irresistibly romantic and heartwarming fun continues in the next book in the WHISPER LAKE series, JUST ONE KISS, from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy.

Just One Kiss
Whisper.Lake.....JUST ONE KISS..#4...Barbara..Freethy
Hannah an ER nurse, dead tired, and being five days before Christmas in Whisper Lake, full of visitors. Since thirteen has kept the family together, forgiving them for their demands, especially her mother. Eight hours of work and she had to check on a furnace in one of the rental cabins, for her.
A heavy snow, a flat tire, and Jake came by. Finding a young boy alone in the cabin, mother leaving a note. Hannah didn't want help, but needed Jake to take them back to town. Jake, a first crush and first humiliation to forgive him
yet for those memories, seemed impossible.
A child Brett, a trusting smile and the innocence of one that is young, before the hurts of people. Excepting his mother left him alone, isolated in a cabin out from town. For for what reason a note saying no calls to police.
A story that tugs on your heart, of the drama in families and as in this story Hannah always stepping in to help and has no family of her own. A story of forgiveness and healing, enjoyable and well done. The 4th in this good series full of memories in Whisper Lake. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
