Contemporary Romance

Rust Creek Falls, Montana

Nick Pritchett is a blond hunky carpenter from Thunder Canyon and he has been doing his share helping put the town of Rust Creek Falls back together after the Great Flood.  He’s great with a hammer and even more popular with the ladies.  Though if you ask his best bud, Cecelia Clifton maybe a little too popular. 

Cecelia has come to town looking for love but Nick thinks she is going about it all wrong.  He thinks he can help her meet her match if she follows his instructions completely.  The trouble is that Nick is finding that the only man he thinks is good enough for his childhood pal is himself.  Now Nick needs to convince the new Cecelia that he is the best man for her.

This is a great friends to lover story.  The characters are fun and interesting and have the story moving along very well.  Reading as Nick and Cecelia figured out just how they feel about each other and overcome the obstacles that they manage to put in their own paths makes for a book that is hard to put down.  The story also has some interesting secondary characters that show the pratfalls of small town life while being humorous.  This is a great book that will have readers hoping for more stories from this small town. 

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
