Excellent read! Awesome story that is part of the Tiny Blessings series. Miranda has an adorable son (age 6 or 7?) who plays a key role in bringing his Mom and Andrew together. Plenty of mystery, suspense, and romance.
There was just something about her. Andrew couldn't keep his eyes and thoughts off of Miranda. He first noticed her as a waitress at the local cafe. It didn't matter to him that he was rich and she was barely making ends meet. Besides thinking about Miranda, he often placed himself in danger for the sake of a secret project he was deeply committed to.
Miranda had a fierce love for her son's well-being and, in the beginning, that was her only concern. She didn't have time for or want any man, especially someone like Andrew.
She certainly never expected him to show her any attention. What did he want?
Miranda was determined to keep the secret that had forced her and her son to stay on the run. Was it possible that Andrew could help? Could she even trust him?
There is more than meets the eye when you see Miranda Jones. She is a single mother, working contently as a waitress in the Starlight Dinner.. but she has a finance degree and graduated tops in her class. She is just friendly enough to be pleasant, but she doesn't get close and keeps others at arms length. She is most definitely hiding something and Andrew Noble is determined to find out what it is and to get to know Miranda better. And if anyone can do it, Andrew can! Afterall, his entire life is one big secret and if the truth comes out his cover will be blown and all the good he does may come to an end.
