A terrific read!

Who is this man? That's what Maddie Houser wonders as days pass without her meeting the owner of the bed and breakfast where she's staying. Arthur Tyler, though, is leaving heartwarming messages for Maddie, and she feels a growing intimacy with this unseen friend. How can I love a man I've never met? her head demands. But how can she deny her heart, which wants this precious friendship to go deeper? Will she play it smart? Or will she keep playing it by heart?
