New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers another winner when small-town matchmakers decide a billionaire is the perfect man for a single-mom widow.
★★★★★ "This is the best book I have ever read…tender and touching and realistic." ~Ronijean007 (iBooks Review)
When single-mom Clare Gray delivers her famous cupcakes to the general store on her way to work, she meets a sexy, out-of-town businessman who is in need of lodging...and match-making locals decide her available-for-rent spare room is the perfect solution.
After becoming a widowed single mom at eighteen, Clare traded her dreams of love to focus on raising her daughter. The last thing she wants is for a man to invade her life, even if he is deliciously tempting and wonderful with her daughter. But when late-night cupcake baking turns intimate, suddenly her heart is at risk once again.
High-powered exec Griffin Friesé is in town on a personal mission, and he has no time for love. But when he moves into Clare's farmhouse, he soon finds that life doesn't always give you want you want…but it might give you exactly what you need. Gradually, Clare's smile, her passion for life, and her small-town loyalty awaken something inside him, something that makes him yearn for a life, a love, and a family he's never had.
Can a single mom find the love and family she always wanted with a man afraid to open his heart?

I appreciate any story where teenagers are realistically portrayed. This is one of them. Love the small town girl, big city guy romance. One small detail that bugged me was why didn't Clare have legal malpractice insurance? That part of the story line was unnecessary. Otherwise this was a nice story.
This story was a pleasure to read in the afternoons after a busy morning. The beginning gets you hooked right from the start. Enjoyed this story from beginning to end.
I don't normally write reviews, but this one is worth it. Beautifully written. A story about a man who finds himself, a woman who learns to allow herself to be happy and a whole slew of people who benefit from their decisions. Bring your Kleenex and enjoy!
