Kaylie Flynn was luckier than most children left to the Texas foster care system, blessed with a foster mother who taught her the comfort of home…and the healing power of baking the perfect brownie.
Now, Kaylie has journeyed back to Hope Springs to open a café in the charming Victorian she once shared with her foster family - and to finally find answers about her past and where she came from.
Yet Kaylie’s carefully laid plans quickly become complicated. The house needs far more work than she realized, and Tennessee Keller, the carpenter Kaylie hires, stirs up feelings she hasn’t felt in a long while. When an unexpected crisis threatens to unravel her dreams, Kaylie seems to have all the ingredients for a perfect disaster - or quite possibly the perfect love.

I want to call this a sweet romance (and it is!) but there are enough conflicts, obstacles, and hardships to keep it from being too sweeeeeet. I love that I can always count on Alison Kent for real grown up characters who behave like adults -- flawed adults who struggle to work it out and do the right thing.
Narrator Natalie Ross is terrific as usual.
It would be terrific to hear Kent's steamy Dalton Gang trilogy in audio.
The characters are unbelievable. Way too much introspection. The heroine has just met the hero and within a day decided he wanted to 'protect her' and that her future plans were in jeopardy. I disliked the inner voice of the heroine a lot. Constant, impossible, unrealistic thoughts.
I am astounded to see the other reviews that are so good and went back, trying to listen to more of the book, but it was impossible.
I'd have to listen to another performance by the narrator to see if she was part of the problem. I doubt it.
Gorgeous cover, interesting plot. I love books on chefs and people opening little cafe's in small towns.
I listen to Audiobooks all the time and am not fussy. So sorry I bought the ebook too!
