When a struggling bakery owner is rescued by a wannabe songwriter with hidden culinary talents, they discover they can make sweet harmony … if they can only learn to work together.

Rhett Foster longs to change the world with his music, yet he can’t even finish writing one song. Battered by a string of failures and disillusioned, he returns home to Portland, Oregon. While he desperately wants to create a chart-topping hit, his dad mandates a new mission: move to coastal vacation hotspot Seabrook, Washington and expand the family’s successful restaurant chain.

In danger of destroying her late parents’ legacy if she doesn’t diversify her menu, Lindsay Carmichael will try anything to save her bakery. But with a tiny budget and an injured employee who can’t work, she has no choice but to sink the last of her savings into buying a dilapidated food truck and hiring Rhett as a part-time barista. What she doesn’t know is that the handsome songwriter has a secret … one that could destroy her business and her heart.

 A sweet book that will make you drool throughout with a coastal backdrop as the setting.
As I was reading this book, I felt that the author was talking directly to me for I felt just like Rhett did. It all came slamming back to me.
I felt like Rhett trying to please his dad all his life. But no matter what he did it was never enough.
Readers this was what I went through my whole entire life with my dad. But nothing I did wasn't enough.
Years later after mom passed away, I found out it was because I was adopted. His whole family treated me like that. After mom died he met and married someone else and boy I sure didn't like her one little bit. I ended up becoming the unwanted red headed step child.
After my husband and I went back to visit him with our son he told us not to ever come back and that my son wasn't his grandchild. But I found out he adopted my stepmother grandchild. I was hurt and angry.
Reading this book brought those memories slamming back. I have forgiven him. I needed to. It's what Jesus would do.After I did I had some sort of peace and mind. I only wished that he knows. We need to do these things while our parents are still living. Not after they're gone.
I loved this book too for the many quotes and messages. Here's one for example:
We carry big dreams in our hearts for a reason. Sometimes we're tempted give up and try to wrestle circumstances into submission, especially when it looks like things aren't headed in the right direction but we each. have our own gifts. I believe that we're supposed to use them for a purpose
The way God intended. For if you don't He can take them away just as easily as He gave them. I'm fortunate that He left at least something or two somethings that I still can do. I'm am extremely grateful until all eternity.
I can sympathize with Lindsay. She has been through too many hurts just like I have.
Unlike Lindsay I am unhappy with where I live. I mean, I like small towns just not this one. Too many family members. I want to go somewhere special somewhere where no one knows us and start over. But we will stay here for now until God calls me for another adventure.
Maybe my family and I can come for a visit to this small town someday. I love to travel and visit places I've never been.
I strongly recommend this book. Maybe you've been through mine and Rhetts situation in your life along the way. Have past hurts that need forgiven. Talk to the Lord my reader friends. He will point you the way. Forgive and love while that person is still there. You won't regret it.
My thanks to Prism Tours and the author who provided me a copy of this book. NO compensations were received and all opinions are my own.

About the Author

Heidi secretly dreamed of writing a book for most of her childhood, but a particularly painful rejection letter in middle school convinced her to tuck that dream away. Instead, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington and a Master’s Degree in Athletic Training from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. After a brief career as a Certified Athletic Trainer, Heidi married her husband Steve, then she dusted off her big dream of becoming a published author and launched her first contemporary romance into the world in 2014. A huge fan of coffee, dark chocolate, and happily ever after, Heidi currently lives in North Carolina with Steve, three active boys and one amazing Goldendoodle.
