Plagued by panic attacks and nightmares, she’s determined to embrace her second chance at life, knowing that death could take her in an instant.

Will he reject her when he learns about the blood on her hands?
Firefighter and paramedic Matt Billings fights his attraction to the alluring new bookshop manager. She dangles a one-night stand under his nose, but the last time he gave in to such an offer he ended up with a child. He is determined to be a better man than his philandering father. Can he convince Elizabeth that her past is not as terrifying as suddenly being a parent, and a relationship is worth more than just a checkbox on her bucket list?

“Damn that man and his adorable child,”
I really, really enjoyed this book. This is the second book that I have read by this author and let’s just say that she has yet to let me down. I laughed, wanted to cry at times and fell in love with Hoffman Grove for the second time.
