Book Description From Amazon:
Publication Date: April 6, 2012 | Series: Avalon Romance
After a tumultuous past, Greta Kendall has focused mainly on her bridal shop, located on the first floor of her beloved Queen Anne Victorian near Aspen. For two years she's fought to save her house from Stephanie Harwood of Harwood Development, who is intent on razing her home to build a new mall. But now Greta's running out of time. The town council is about to approve the final plans for the mall.
When Gray Daniels walks into her shop, Greta is immediately attracted to his rugged good looks and midnight blue eyes, until she learns he's Stephanie Harwood's fiancÃ©. She's furious to find they've tricked her into a publicity stunt aimed at garnering support for the mall. So now her little war has a new front: Gray Daniels. If only she could also fight her growing attraction to him.
A knock on the door brings a return of old danger, and Greta must now put aside her anguish over the house to discover if she's at last capable of looking the past in the eye and overcoming it -- and if she's finally free to love again.
I was absolutely captivated by this compelling small town story. That little gingerbread house became a character itself and I fell in love with it. Filled with romance, and brimming with emotions, the writing brought me to tears on more than one occasion. Truly heart warming, I loved it. I highly recommend this book.
I was given this book for free in exchange for a review.
