Being a legal secretary is not exactly Jana Barrowman’s dream job, so when recently widowed Alex Steadman contacts her about the résumé she sent in more than a year ago with a job offer for a creative consultant position, she puts some serious thought into accepting it. The problem is, if she takes the new job, she will have to move to another state and leave her mom and dad behind. But when Jana determines that the move can help her get away from Brad—the overly adoring man in her life who she really doesn’t have any feelings for—she decides to go.
When Jana arrives for her new adventure, both Alex and his young daughter, Elise, are easily enamored with her— as is Jeff, the ward member who becomes Jana’s first date in her new town. However, Jana is not so sure about her feelings for any of them. And as she works side by side with Alex to transform a shabby house into a charming boutique, it becomes clear to her that Alex wants more than a friendship. Though Jana resists, she knows she has to work out her confusion before she loses everything that is becoming so dear to her. Will she be able to come to terms with the fact that Alex’s deceased wife, Vanessa, will always be a big part of his life, as well as Alex’s and her differing religious convictions and so many other complications that might not fit at a table for two?

I loved this book and the characters. I wish that this author would come out with another book. I have already read this book a couple of times and would recommend it to anyone. It is a beautiful love story which would be a safe read for anyone. I can't wait till she writes another book. Fabulous!

I really liked this LDS Christian fiction book!! I got the kindle version and read it in less than 2 days because I couldn't put it down!! I was able to relate alot to the main character and some of her personal life decisions she was trying to decide about and her struggles. I found it emotional, realistic, and easy to follow. This book was not adventurous (which I usually read), but rather romantic, but still kept my attention without being drawn out or boring. There are alot of references to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gospel teachings in relation to marriage and relationships without being "too preachy". I loved the main characters family members and they reminded me alot of my parents and family closeness. I look forward to more books by this author and I appreciated the fun, "clean" fiction romance story!!
