I loved this book. A great romance, that is set in a small town in Door County, Wisconsin. I live in this area, so it was especially fun reading the book and being able to visualize the setting.

Since her husband passed away a year ago and her daughter left for college, Maggie Pearson decides to move back to her hometown and open a Bed and Breakfast. Shortly after she arrives, Maggie sees her high school sweetheart Eric Severson. Eric offers to help Maggie get the permits she will need to open her business. They both soon realize they are drawn to each other and know they should keep their distance. Eric is married to the beautiful and ambitious Nancy. He wants a child but Nancy doesn't agree. As Eric and his wife deal with their problems, Maggie must put up with a difficult daughter and a mother who never gives Maggie her approval.

I don't like love triangles. I don't like adultery in my romance books. And I certainly don't like heroes to make some very blockhead decisions. But for some reason I was thoroughly entertained by this book. LaVyrle Spencer is one of my favorite authors. I'm beginning to think she can take any subject matter and make it entertaining. I really like Maggie and how she handled the situation. I liked Eric...even though I wanted to shoot him a couple of times. This story was predictable, but I was still entertained. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
