Back Cover Blurb:
Since Hadleigh, Melody and Bex—the best of best friends—entered into a marriage pact, two of them have found (and married) the men of their hearts. But Bex doesn't think she'll be as fortunate as the others. Her own first love died years ago in a faraway war, and Bex has lost hope for a happy marriage of her own. She concentrates on her business, a successful chain of fitness clubs, instead.
Then, when single father Tate Calder comes to Mustang Creek with his two sons in tow, who befriend Bex's eight-year-old nephew, she and the handsome, aloof newcomer are constantly thrown together. But is the marriage season over? Or can a man with doubts about love be the right husband for a woman who wants it all?
Seeing these characters come together, despite their pasts was enchanting. I enjoyed how Miller kept the focus on the main characters while bringing forward everyone’s lives. The children are just as important to the tale as the adults, creating a full, family feel to the tale.
Miller easily brings this small town to life in a big way, melding romance with reality in the most realistic yet captivating manner.
