This is one of the older books from Debbie Macomber. Valerie rushes home when her father has a heart attack where she falls in love with Dr. Colby Winston.
"The Orchard Valley trilogy features three delightful, spirited sisters and a trio of equally fascinating men. The stories are rich with the romance, warmth of heart and humor readers expect, and invariably receive, from Debbie Macomber." -Linda Lael Miller (review from back of book)
Valerie rushes home to Orchard Valley Oregon when her father suffers a heart attack. She and her two younger sisters gather at his side, praying he'll live, fearing he'll die. The last thing that Valerie expects at a time like this is to fall in love, and with a man like Colby Winston yet. She's a take-charge bit city businesswoman. He's a renowned heart surgeon who loves small town living and wants a stay at home wife. Valerie can't understand why she's so attracted to him or why her father keeps insisting that she and Colby make a perfect couple.
