Her carefully crafted facade is unraveling…fast
Rebecca MacKenzie’s career as a caregiver for the elderly suited her perfectly. Ease their suffering, hop back in the motor home and move on. Caring without commitment. It was ideal for someone trying to outrun her memories…and mistakes. Someone determined to stay detached.
Flynn Harris, her new patient’s grandson, is weakening her resolve in every way. His scrutiny, his suspicion–and worst of all, his kisses–are more than distracting. They’re dangerous. Because she’s teetering on the edge of caring. And revealing her secrets. And…staying.
Welcome to Harmony Valley!
Things aren’t as harmonious here as they once were. Jobs have dried up and almost everyone under the age of sixty has moved away, leaving the population…well, gray-haired and peaceful.
Enter three young men – Flynn, Slade and Will – friends, newly minted millionaires and hometown success stories. Flynn Harris is balancing the trio’s new winery against the needs of his stroke-burdened grandfather while caring for his young nephew.
Now that Flynn’s wealthy, all kind of people show up to try to take advantage of him and his family, Flynn is especially suspicious when Becca MacKenzie, caregiver in need of a job, conveniently shows up on his doorstep. Becca is smart, pretty and opinionated – and once his grandfather meets her, no one else will do.
If only Becca didn’t have a secret that could break Flynn’s trust. I hope you enjoy Flynn and Becca’s journey, as well as the other romances in The Harmony Valley series. I love to hear from readers.
