She’s been over him for years, until he returns home...
In her new role as tourism director, Brianna Renton intends to put Sweetheart, Montana, on the map with the first annual Cherry Blossom festival. She’s also supervising the build of a new community hall by her father’s log cabin construction company. But the project is stalled and an unexpected visit from a former employee could be the answer to Brianna’s prayers. Except he’s her ex.
Angus Adams never forgot Brianna. When they were together, he put her on a pedestal and was determined to win her hand by proving himself and working hard to eventually buy into a partnership with her father’s company. He accepted a scholarship at a prestigious university to get his architecture degree, planning to return for Brianna, but she broke up with him the week before he left with no explanation.
Saying yes to helping her during his vacation is easy. Trying to win her heart while protecting his own is much harder.
Kilby delivers a sweet, G-rated second small-town romance in her Sweetheart, Montana series (after Long Lost Christmas). Brianna Renton still pines for Angus Adams, the one who got away—though she was the one to break up with him five years ago, pushing him away for his own good when he received a scholarship to study architecture in California. Now Angus is back in Sweetheart to visit his mother before starting a job in Sacramento. When the foreman overseeing the construction of the town's new community hall lands in the hospital, Brianna and Angus are thrust back together to finish the project before Sweetheart's first annual Cherry Blossom Festival, which Brianna is organizing. For his part, Angus never understood why Brianna dumped him; he'd been on the verge of proposing and still wears the engagement ring on a chain under his shirt. As the start date for Angus's job gets closer, the pair are faced with a choice: take a leap of faith, or risk being unhappy forever. The fast pacing and confident prose neatly advance the narrative, the hero and heroine will capture hearts, and an endearing supporting cast, including vintage shop owner Kylie, add charm. Readers will hope to visit this winsome town again soon.
