by Allie Pleiter

Their mother needs a fresh start…Could he be what they’ve been waiting for?

Back in her hometown with her twin daughters, widow Marilyn Sofitel is set on never falling in love again. She’s sure her heart is safe spending time with Wyatt Walker as he works to fix the carousel her girls love. Everyone knows he’s handsome, charming…and trouble. But as they grow closer, might their unlikely friendship to develop into something deeper?


Today I’d like to tell you just a bit about this new book with the cute cover! 🙂

This was my first time reading a book by this author and I enjoyed it!
I found it to be a sweet (if a bit short) story.
Marilyn, a young widow, moves back to her hometown with her young twin daughters after her husband’s death.
All is not as it appears on the surface. Everyone, including her parents believe only the best about her late husband. Instead, Marilyn is dealing with many issues while still trying to help her daughters grieve their loss.
She gets reacquainted with Wyatt, and as they say, the rest is history.
Wyatt is the perfect hero. Marilyn and Wyatt learn to know each other and how to be strong for the other.
The romance did seem to progress just a bit too quickly, but overall, I found it to be a sweet love story.

In addition to the romance, this book also brings up some other issues that are very relatable. Parenting, dyslexia, difficult past history, and more. While these could be heavy, the author dealt with them in a lighter fashion, and I found the story to be an easy read. I enjoyed it, and would classify it as clean, light reading, a book that is perfect for a little bit more of a lighthearted, quick read.
