A Scandalous Wedding, a Second Chance
Annette Trevetti, poor and unpolished, was a modern-day Cinderella about to marry her Prince Charming. Until a very pregnant woman strutted into the church -- staking a claim to Annette’s fiancé.
The wedding was off and Annette was gone, the awful consequences of a family secret Steve Corbett had hoped would never rear its head. But now a single father, he can’t wish it never happened, because it brought him the daughter he adores.
When a family incident finally draws Annette back to small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, after seven years, she and Steve must face each other, their mistakes, their yearning for a long ago love, and the reality that they can never go back to the innocent days before a wedding that went so wrong.
Drawn together by shared concern for a beloved elderly friend, they must step out of the past’s shadow to save her and her home. … But that shadow could blight their love a second time.
Can a little girl and an old woman help them absolve old sins and build a future?

I really enjoyed this small town second chance romance because it has everything I hope to find when reading a book by Patricia McLinn who has been one of my favorite authors for quite a few years. I was immediately drawn into this emotionally compelling storyline that brings our heroine Annette back to a town that she gladly left behind years ago because of a painful childhood and the humiliation of an interrupted wedding and a marriage that never came to be. Steve still carries the painful memories of that day but when Annette returns both she and Steve are compelled to face their own shortcomings and deal with the consequences of the events that broke them apart. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series and learn more about the people and the secrets of Tobias, Wisconsin.
