From the series that "fans of Susan Wiggs will find...to their liking" comes this irresistible story of a free spirit who falls for the last man she'd ever expect (Library Journal). Just when recently evicted yoga instructor Faith Rotolo thinks her luck has run out, she inherits a historic mansion in quaint Sapphire Springs. Though Faith never imagined putting roots down anywhere, small-town life is growing on her, as is her fixer-upper house. If only her handsome new contractor, Rob Milan, would stop spoiling her daydreams with the realities of a major rehab...and his generally grouchy vibes. A single dad of two, Rob doesn't have much time for fantasy wish-list ideas his clients can't afford. Then again, Faith's creative energy might be exactly what he needs right now. But while Rob and Faith work to give her home the second chance it deserves, their spirited clashes wind up sparking a powerful attraction. As work nears completion, and Faith's house becomes the shining jewel of the neighborhood, will she and Rob realize that they deserve a fresh start too?
About the Author A happily-ever-after-crafter at heart, Barb Curtis' love for writing began with a quick-witted style column, and her background in marketing led to stints writing print and web copy, newsletters, and grant proposals. The switch to fiction came with the decision to pair her creativity with her love for words, and crafting characters and settings she could truly get lost in. Barb happily lives in a bubble in rural New Brunswick with her husband, daughter, and dog. You'll find her restoring the century-old family homestead, weeding the garden, and no doubt whistling the same song all day long.
