She's a widow with a toddler...he says he never wants a family. It's the perfect faux romance until sparks fly.
Widow and single mom Brooke Jennings Lockwood knows it's time to move on with her life. She can't let fear hold her back any longer. With the help of her sisters, Riley and Olivia, and her cousin, Kate, she musters up the courage to enter back into the world of dating.
When her attempts don't go well, Brooke all but gives up. She'll just skip out on her family's upcoming reunion.
Grant Ward runs Brooke's favorite coffee shop, and she's known him since high school. He was even friends with her late husband. Grant returned to Arcadia Valley after suffering a tragedy of his own. When he learns of Brooke's plight, he has a solution: if she'll go with him to his parents' anniversary party, he'll be her date to the family reunion.
It's the perfect plan until the sparks between them begin to fly.
Can Brooke and Grant let go of the tragedies of the past and the fears of the present and make a real reservation for romance?

This was a delightful book to read. Unfortunately it needed some more editing though. I had to re-read some parts over as a word that was used was incorrect and I had to guess what was wrong and "place" the correct word in on the next pass. I am used to this on ARCs as many haven't gone though a final edit. I paid for this book though and didn't expect it.
It was a wonderful story about a second chance at romance as both lost a spouse through death. I loved that the book was written in a dual POV format. It really helps to understand a character. Brooke was so wonderful to read about and she had her head firmly on her shoulders. Her insight was truly inspirational. I really felt for Grant and the way he really put his life on hold after losing his wife. It was a joy to see him opening up to both Brooke and her son River.
I highly recommend this sweet clean romance (just look past a few incorrect words.)
