After being left at the altar on her wedding day, businesswoman banker Allie Strickland returns to her hometown of Heartland Cove on a leave of absence to recover and regroup. Heartland Cove County in New Brunswick boasts a population of 899 people, Victorian homes, quirky citizens, and a booming tourist industry where people flock to see the longest covered bridge in the entire world.
Grieving the trauma of her ex-fiancé’s betrayal and overwhelmed by her clingy mother and the fry truck family business, Allie rents the first available house she can find. But on the very first night, Allie’s peace and quiet is violated by an unexpected intruder who breaks into the house while she’s taking a bubble bath. An intruder with an alias and old ties to Heartland Cove.
Forced by unusual circumstances to share the same rental house, Allie’s suspicions of the man grow—even as she finds a growing attraction between them, much to her consternation. But is Ethan Smith merely a freelancer on a magazine assignment taking photos of the famous Heartland Cove bridge—or is he an undercover spy for the mayor who wants to ruin the charming town by running a new highway through for his own profit?
Is Ethan Smith friend or foe? Enemy or lover?

What a start to the book. Poor Allie! Her life is completely turned upside down. Then, just when she thinks she’s got a moment of peace, Ethan barges in on her. Literally. (So funny!) I loved watching her discover her self-worth and move toward true happiness. And who was waiting there? Ethan. He cared so deeply for Allie, and his actions showed that. He is so generous, and an overall good man.
I really enjoyed the book! The characters were easy to root for, and it was wonderful to watch their relationship develop. There were also some twists that kept things interesting.
I received a copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.
