But Allie decides to move and brings her grandmother along, since the café gives Nana a chance to do what she loves best—cook.

    " I really need to start writing down which blog I get these recommendations from, because I picked up this book solely based on another book blogger's recommendation. Whoever you are, thank you!! This story was amazing! Compelling, suspenseful, great characters. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 12/27/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. It's about finding friends you can count on. It's about looking at someone's heart and not at their outward appearance. There's also some good suspense that I wasn't expecting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Werebot | 7/26/2011

    " My aunt wrote this book, and I proofread it for her. Of all her books that I've read, this is the best I think. Not a straight 'genre' romance; more modern, less steamy. A fun read. Should be out sometime next year. "

    " I've a read a few other by her. I always end up feeling warm and at home when reading them. I liked the story but in all honesty it took me a while... it was a little broken but all turned out o.k. in the end. Would have liked to see more with Luke's character. "

    " Some things just didn't fit together for me in this book, like how the sheriff was involved with the drugs. Usually I prefer contemporary romances but I prefer her historical books much more than this one. "

    " Quick quick read. Nice story...took me away from my current turmoil. Defenitly a good one to lose yourself in. "
