Publisher's Summary

Let the battle begin...

A 30th birthday is a landmark, but Zoe is crushed when everyone - including her nine-year-old son - seems to forget it. Of course, she has no idea about the surprise party, or the even more surprising birthday kiss from her best friend’s brother and secret high school crush, Blake Peterson.

Zoe doesn’t have time to dwell on it, though. She’s worked hard to rebuild her life after a divorce, and she fully expects the promotion dangled in front of her. Her boss has other ideas, however: A contest to renovate Peterson’s Ice Creamery, and may the best man - or woman - win.

What’s worse, her competition is none other than Blake himself, Old Man Peterson’s grandson.

Blake’s ready to join the family business, but his grandfather says he has to prove himself first. Now, he has to work side-by-side with the beautiful Zoe, and the two butt heads right away. It’s a battle between Zoe’s nostalgic style and Blake’s beliefs that high-tech modernization is crucial to the bottom line of a company.

They’re both stubbornly sure that they’re right, but the more time they spend together, the more difficult it is to deny there’s something growing between them that has nothing to do with business. Can these two put their differences aside long enough to discover what’s really important?

Another great read

Elsie Davis has a fun way of writing stories that keep the readers attention because they can relate to the down home characters and their lives. Sweet, clean and fun. A great addition to the series.

The narrative was well done, as usual.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving this review.

Couldn’t finish

This seemed to be a really cute story but I just couldn’t get past the narration. The sing song and at times overly exaggerated way she spoke was too annoying for me. Additionally, the character transitions made the characters unrealistic. I may look for the paperback version as I thought it was a good story. I would not recommend the audio version.

Love at last!

I took one star from the story because I thought that Scott was mouthy, had attitude, and was overindulged. It got to be annoying when all the adults were constantly pandering to his sour ways. Other than that this story, along with the rest of the series, is a wonderful sweet and clean tale of two old friends discovering that the past does not dictate the future. Love, hope and success await you in this story of friends, family and special occasions in the small town of Hallbrook.
The narrator did another great read as she enticed us into the lives of Zoe and the Peterson family. Liam did a convincing job as Scott and brought a fun element to the experience with his talents.

Delightful

A delightful story that was well done by narrator, One feels for Zoe wanting another chance with Blake, a kiss was it just that or more. Assistant at her place of work, the anticipation of promotion. When dreams stopped the grandson came into learn the ropes was Blake. Hoping for happy endings for Zoe. Given audio for my voluntary review.
