Iris Chance is turning 33. She's an independent woman, the owner of the Sunflower Coffee and Tea Company in Hidden Falls, Oregon. Hidden Falls boasts clean air, natural beauty, good neighbors. The only problem is that there are zero interesting single men and Iris wants a baby. She'd love the whole package - the love story, the sexy romance with a hero who will sweep her off her feet - but she doesn't have time to wait for Mr. Right. He may lose his way and never show up. She decides to start a family with the help of a sperm bank, knowing she'll have her large family to support and encourage her as a single mom. When the new High School English teacher, Geoff McLeod, walks into her cafe and into her life he seems perfect. There's only one problem.
Geoff McLeod never imagined his wife would end their six-year marriage with a text message. Reeling from her betrayal, he moves to Hidden Falls to teach English and Creative Writing. He's got zero interest in women or dating until he meets Iris Chance, the intriguing woman who bakes the best Morning Glory muffins he's ever tasted. He can't imagine starting his day without stopping in on his way to work for coffee and a muffin and to see the sexiest woman who ever donned an apron.
Iris is the oldest girl in a family of 11 kids. She's always been the stand-in mother to her younger siblings. She's got so used to looking out for other people and listening to their problems that she's become the confidante and unofficial therapist of half the town. She can see that the new English teacher has some emotional baggage dragging along behind him. He looks like he can use a friend and Iris has never been able to turn away from someone in pain. She's prepared to be his friend, but she would never get involved with someone who is still officially married.
But love has a funny way of messing up the best-laid plans.

I enjoy Nancy's stories and would greatly read another.
Iris finds out if she wants children she needs to start trying soon. She has no man and decides to try on her own. Any men that do come around only seem to want advice to fix their current relationships and treat her more like a sister than lover. Geoff is leaving his life behind after his wife decides to leave him for her relationship with his best friend. Meeting a wonderful woman like Iris was not in his plans.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Iris Chance is at the ripe old age of 32. She has just about everything; her own coffee/tea shop and bakery in Hidden Falls Oregon. She is surrounded by family and friends and is always ready to listen to everyone's problems. The only thing missing from Iris' life is a baby. Unfortunately, there are no prospects in or around town for a boyfriend, much less someone to start a family with. She is seriously considering having a baby via sperm donation bank and becoming a single mother.
Geoff McLeod's life was shattered when, after six years of marriage, his wife left him – notifying him with a text message. He decides to start anew, accepting a teaching position at the high school in Hidden Falls.
I think any listener can take it from here… Nancy Warren writes a romance that may seem predictable, but is anything but.
Teri Schnaubelt always does an exceptional job narrating. She chooses excellent books to perform and does so flawlessly. I have yet to be disappointed and doubt I ever will.
This is a another sweet and innocent romance (there is one racy sex scene) in the Take a Chance series written by Nancy Warren. I really enjoyed book number one and cannot wait to listen Books 3 and 4.
Notes: There is one racy, descriptive bedroom scene. Other than that I would rate this romance with the movie rating PG.
