After her fiance died, elementary school teacher Rebecca “Rusty” Matthews vowed never to fall in love again. She’s completely happy with her life in small-town Sweetapple Falls, Oregon. If marriage isn’t part of God’s plan for her life, she’s fine with that. She has her work, her faith, her friends, and chocolate. Who needs romance?
Divorced mechanic Tom Davis suddenly becomes a full-time father again when his ex-wife abandons their nine-year-old daughter, Ava. Tom wants to help his beloved child settle back into life in Sweetapple Falls, but it seems his ex-wife was right—he only understands machines, not emotions. Managing Ava’s moods and outbursts after her life is torn apart for the second time are beyond him. He turns to the one person his daughter trusts. Her teacher, Rusty.
A marriage of convenience will give Ava the loving, stable home she needs. But will Tom lose them both when he falls in love with the woman he married, who could just be his perfect bride?
An emotional story of love, faith, healing, and finding new purpose set in the small Oregon town of Sweetapple Falls, from a USA Today bestselling author. Clean, sweet, and wholesome Christian inspirational romance.
