International best-selling author Ava Miles shares a powerful tale about the sweetness of home and falling in love for the first time.
Chase Parker doesn't believe in all that gushy home sweet love stuff.
Moira Hale sure as heck does.
Becoming a respected corporate executive of a billionaire enterprise is more enduring, according to Chase. He lost his home in a tragedy as a kid and doesn't plan on building another one ever again. But he finds himself stuck in small town Dare Valley recovering from a skiing accident - and in a home much like the one he lost.
Moira is excited to have her first real home in addition to a fantabulous new job, working in tandem with Chase's boss on a high-powered fundraiser. She and Chase don't have to worry about an office romance technically because they don't work together. And so, while Chase is recovering, they decide to "hang out" and enjoy each other.
Neither anticipates how deep their feelings go. Chase certainly doesn't expect to sift through the ashes of his past in order to heal and share his memories with Moira - or find comfort in all the things he'd locked away. But soon Chase discovers how sweet home can be...all the while falling in love.
Of all the Dare Valley series this was most enjoyable and realistic. I loved the improved character development.
I have enjoyed all the books in this series. This book I just had trouble really getting engaged with the story. I think it really drags out one characters bad attitude so long that I just wanted to skip that part. If I did that would be half of the book. I'm not saying don't read because I fell in love starting at book 1 in the series. The author and narration are good.
I throughly enjoyed reading this entire series. I am sad to see it end - especially love Uncle Arthur a lot. He has lots of insight and knowledge. I hope the series continues soon.
The romance didn't develop naturally. It happened too fast. Sappy dialogue. I didn't like this one in the series.
This was a great story revealing the need for family, friends and professionals to help with healing. love Dare Valley.
Loved the story! Really encourage everyone to start with the first book in the series.... Enjoy!
Ava is a fantastic writer I really enjoy her books from cover too cover
I'm looking forward to her next one
Ms. Miles gives the reader a beautiful story of man attempting to heal wounds from the past so that he may fully live in his present and future world!
