A widowed florist, her ten-year-old daughter, and the paramedic who delivered the girl a decade earlier… Love’s second chance on the beach!
Paramedic Andrew Herrin delivered Gretchen Samuels’s daughter on the side of the road when she and her husband couldn’t make it to the hospital in time. When their paths cross again in small-town Hawthorn Harbor, she’s a widow and the baby is ten-year-old Dixie.
Dixie gets along great with Drew, and Gretchen finds herself falling in love with the man who’s rescued her twice now. But when Drew’s ex-girlfriend comes back to town, Gretchen’s trust issues rear their ugly head. Can she and Drew find their way toward finding love in the lavender?
This is a sweet, clean, quick read romance. I liked Drew a lot. He is an all around good guy seeking to make the world a better place and great with kids. Gretchen I had a harder time with. She was so bent on relying on herself that she was just unwise and kinda rude. I get that things were rough for her but she was prickly enough that I had to wonder what Drew was attracted to. There must have been some mighty strong sparks in their second chance meeting. Dix was adorable and seemed beyond her years.
Biggest problem I had with this book was that I’m just not sure I can handle black pepper in my ice-cream… 🙂
