Victoria Banning’s perfect California life falls apart when she loses her job and boyfriend, all in the same day. Finished with controlling men and broken hearts, she decides it’s time to rewrite her story. New Chapter. New life. All on her terms. When she learns of her great-aunt Mags’s financial distress, she decides to make a road trip. But she’s not in time, and trouble follows her every step of the way when she moves into her late aunt’s rundown cottage in Honeybrooke Cove. Thank heavens, there’s at least one capable handyman in the small Wisconsin lake town to help her put the house on the market. Too bad, he’s overly bossy for her tastes.
Surgeon, Barrett Collins, should have let someone else take his last case. When everything went wrong, he left the big city and rebuilt his life as a handyman in Honeybrooke Cove. He’s up to his tool belt in repairs on Mags’s house and everyone else who needs him. When Barrett learns Mags left her cottage to him and her headstrong niece, he’s ready to ship Ms. Banning back to California. But there is something to be said for sharing a cottage with a beautiful woman. Especially when she desperately needs his help.
Life in Wisconsin’s North Country can be harsh, and when someone wants Victoria out of Honeybrooke Cove, life is unforgiving. As Barrett helps Victoria navigate the elements, they learn to open their hardened hearts and live again. Amazon Kindle and Print
