Divorced and back in Cannon Beach, OR, where she hopes to raise her seven-year-old daughter, Skye, Melissa Fielding is mortified when she trips while out running on the beach and falls flat on her face in front of a man she hasn't seen since high school. Eli Sanderson isn't the skinny nerd she remembers; he's a gorgeous military doctor home on leave while his dad, a local physician, recuperates from knee surgery. He will also fill in at the clinic where Melissa works as a nurse. There is a magnetic force between them from the start, but with Eli planning to return to duty and Melissa determined that Skye won't have the disruptive, constantly moving military childhood she experienced, they know it could never be serious—and certainly not love.
VERDICT Touching, gently humorous, and overflowing with small-town Pacific Coast flavor, this charmer takes readers back to Brambleberry House, a grand old Victorian with a dash of matchmaking magic, and a story with sweet romantic appeal. A bonus includes The Daddy Makeover (2007), the first in the original "Women of Brambleberry House" trilogy. Thayne (Season of Wonder) lives in Northern Utah.
