Drea Gale came back to Sugar Lake to help out with the family bakery temporarily, but after a year away from New York audition rooms, she’s starting to reconsider diving back into the grind. When her successful redesign of the bakery catches the eye of a theater owner who has an even more extensive plan in mind, Drea may have new opportunities to use her skills—unless Kellen Kilborn, the theater owner’s handsome grandson, gets in the way. Kellen is convinced the theater should be sold to improve the family business and has come back to Sugar Lake to convince his grandmother to sell the property. When his grandmother pairs the two up to complete a few tasks, Drea’s quirky creativity and Kellen’s stoic determination quickly show that opposites do attract, even if they don’t agree.
VERDICT This engaging second book in Jackson’s “Sugar Lake” series will appeal to those who enjoy watching two city dwellers, stuck at their own crossroads, connect in a small town.
