Sophisticated New York playwright Lori Scott feels like a failure when her producer boyfriend calls it quits on both their relationship and her first play. On a dare, she throws a dart at a map and ends up moving to Brigham City, Utah, where she plans to set aside writing, religion, and men to focus on her new career substituting as The Garden Guru for the local paper.
But fate has something else in mind. When she accidentally lights her house on fire, Lori has no idea of the sparks that lie ahead. Will she be able to resist the charm and persistence of local firefighting hero John Wayne Walker? Will old hurts and fears cause her to turn her back on the best thing that’s ever happened to her?
Author Heather Horrocks brings a fresh, fun voice to this delightful contemporary romance about following your heart, finding true love, and wrestling with a basket full of zucchini!
I was a bit disappointed with this book and skimmed the last half. There was no plot, the characters were one dimensional, the dialogue was stilted, and the writing wasn't very good. I had high hopes for it because it looked like a very cute book.
I thought this was a fun light read. I didn't really connect with the main character, but I enjoyed it.
I loved the book. It was light reading, but a very sweet story of love and forgiveness. It made me look at my life a bit closer and gave hope in finding the Lord again. I look forward to more from this author.
