An injury ended Spencer “Smoke” Gregory’s baseball career with the Portland Pioneers.  The scandal of his wife’s death drove him and his twelve years old daughter Peyton back to his hometown of Hope’s Crossing where affluent Harry Lange hired him to run the new recreation center for six months.


Father and daughter stop at the Sugar Rush candy shop owned by Charlotte Caine, who hates Spencer.  In high school, he humiliated the overweight Charlotte who had a major crush starring him.  Spencer is shocked at how smoking hot Charlotte looks.  As Charlotte struggles not to fall again for the rogue who broke her heart, she sees how nurturing he is towards his daughter.  However this time both fall in love, but nothing will happen unless she lets go her anger towards him.


The latest Hope’s Crossing contemporary romance (see Blackberry Summer and Woodrose Mountain) is a warm second chance at love family drama.  Though the premise is not new, the quirky storyline focuses on the three main characters learning love heals all wounds of the heart and soul.
