Running a successful event hotel with two sisters and their husbands is about as easy as it sounds. Harley Spark is always filling in, and her proposals take the back seat to her sisters’ master plan for franchising their brand of specialty venues. Hosting a child’s birthday party at Spark House, Harley is stunned to see guests Gavin and Peyton Rhodes, the widowed father and daughter she nannied for seven years ago. Gavin’s hasty move to Boulder after Harley gave him an awkward and ill-timed kiss made her determined not to be so vulnerable again. Gavin hasn’t come to terms with his wife’s death during childbirth, but he has always tried to put his daughter first. His decision to move back to Colorado Springs to be closer to his parents, however, has unexpectedly revealed feelings for Harley that never went away.
VERDICT Hunting delivers a satisfying contemporary love story in the third and final installment in the “Spark House” trilogy (following Starry-Eyed Love). Realistic emotional obstacles are explored and resolved with a rewarding happily-ever-after.
