Unemployed photojournalist Raynor Elliot stops at a bakery near the famous Deerbourne Inn. Not only is he surprised by a job offer at a regional magazine, he recognizes the bakery's owner. Once an awkward high school kid, she now possesses fabulous curves and an irreverent sense of humor. The cozy bakery, with its delicious smells of sugar, vanilla, and spice, has more to offer than tasty cookies.
Fiona MacLeod has been plagued for years by the need to make amends for telling The Big Lie. When the victim of the lie strolls into her bakery with his icy blue stare and killer charm, she feels like she's standing too close to a hot oven.
Between running her bakery and frosting cupcakes for the Mad River Garden Party, she's pretty sure she's falling in love with this infuriating, sexy man. Can Fiona dredge up the courage to confess, face the consequences, and hope for forgiveness?
Love Proof (Deerbourne Inn) was a sweet & entertaining read. I thought the author created unique but very realistic characters & the location was so quaint.
I am a sucker for second chance romances & this book delivered an amazing HEA. I look forward to more books in the series.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
I have to say that I really enjoyed reading my first book by Luanna Stewart. I didn’t know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised by this story about Raynor and Fiona. Image Fiona’s surprise when Ray shows up in her bakery, Love Sprinkles. He’s just ended a job and is passing through town. They are from the same hometown in Nova Scotia and went to school together. Ray was Ashley’s boyfriend, Fiona’s best friend, until someone spread a lie that Ray cheated on Ashley. He leaves town right after graduation. Ray is now a photojournalist and is looking a new job. One of Fiona’s customers tells Ray about a possible job and he gets it. It looks like he will be staying in Willow Springs, Vermont. I won’t leave any spoilers, but I will say there was a surprise I didn’t expect.
