Iris Alden & Carter Blackwood couldn’t be more different.
Recently divorced, newly-employed, cookie-baking, PTA super mom Iris likes her life neat & organized, while house-flipping Carter’s itchy feet means he never stays in the same place for very long.
When Carter purchases the home across from Iris to renovate it for a quick sell, he has no intention of putting down roots. He certainly doesn’t plan on getting involved with the local community, let alone the town committee mom.
But life doesn’t always coincide with what we think we want.
When an unexpected family crisis pulling Carter back to the city, & Iris’ ex-husband doing his best to sabotage anything resembling a new life for her & their teenaged daughter, Iris & Carter soon find, love isn’t always sweet.
Iris Alden is the divorced mother of a teenage girl who barely has time for herself. Between her job, baking for all the events her daughter is more than happy to sign her up for and being involved in any and every single committee around town, she has her hands full.
Enter Carter Blackwood, the handsome and carefree house flipper working on the house across the street and Iris’ life will slowly, but surely be turned upside down.
This book is a sweet and clean story of unexpected love. A woman who’s lost her perspective by trying to control everything around her is confronted with the possibility of a relationship with a man who is not planning to stay around. We add to that the gossiping qualities of small town living, a cranky teenager and an obnoxious ex-husband and we have the recipe for a cute story of 2 people finding what they need, but haven’t been looking for.
I enjoyed this story. I loved Carter’s character, his flirting and carefree attitude even though his demons might somehow be larger than hers and Iris with her OCD, her baking and her constant running somewhere to get something done. It seemed the woman hardly ever relaxed. She’s someone a lot of us, single moms, can relate to.
In sum, it’s a nice read. A sweet story of second chances and finding love when and where you least expect it.3.5 Book Corner Stars

A movie fanatic, a writer of stories, a lover of life.
I grew up in Maryland with four siblings, three parents and an endless number of cousins within the vicinity – but it was too cold up North for this thin blooded girl. Today, I live in Florida with my two girls and a husband who shares my same sense of humor and basic take on life as we know it.
Life is too short to put dreams on the back burner.
I write both contemporary and paranormal stories that include mystery, suspense, humor, action, romance, and anything else I can think up.
