Sweet romance with characters you can’t help falling in love with. Humorous. Inspirational.
Grace Cathaleen Roussell inherits a house her grandmother can no longer live in and care for and finds the seclusion of pine-scented Upstate New York perfect for her love of nature and the great outdoors. After a broken engagement, it fits her. Fresh milk and dairy, fruit, especially apples, sweet corn, and country cooking. The Adirondack Mountains and Niagara Falls make it a lush, beautiful place.
She’s happy and content to move forward with her life in a home she inherited on a road that reminds her of a rollercoaster. The brown house sits on a hill, and there’s a lovely pond in her front yard. Right behind her home, the thick, green forest of the rural area encroaches upon her backyard, and she’s been warned about bears. A river runs behind her house.
Chase Thorn drives around in his shiny, blue Ford pickup like he’s all that and a slice of New York cheesecake. Can she depend upon him to complete the much-needed construction her house needs, or will he want to complete more? He fixes-up homes and re-sells them. He has endured his share of heartache and pulled himself up by his bootstraps.
Grace owns the Amazing Grace Country Cooking Restaurant. Short a waitress one day, she is serving the customers when she waits on Chase for the first time, discovers he’s in construction, and hires him to fix-up the old home family home. He makes her heart flutter like she’s a teen. Will she be able to cope with that and work with him as she’s promised to help him on her home to save money, or will the attraction be too much for the both of them?
Grace comes to know and understand him better as he does the renovation on her home. Despite her Grandmother Roussell’s encouragement to give the man a chance, she holds him at arm’s length. She doesn’t want her heart broken again. Once was enough. Will her inheritance turn out to be life changing in more ways than one? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PX4BR3L/
