Of course life doesn't stop just because there's an emergency, and new developments arise from the situation.

To ease the strain, Hannah temporarily moves in with George Maxwell, their across-the-street neighbor, with whom she works side-by-side in creating Bella's Park. And when Max surprises Hannah by offering her a marriage of convenience, where she can continue living with the other ladies but also inherit Bella's Park to safeguard it, she has a very difficult decision to make.

Fourth book in the Ladies of Covington series. While this book wasn't quite as engaging as the previous ones, I did enjoy the journey three senior ladies are taking. They've suffered a major loss and the ensuing changes in their lives test their relationships with others and their friendship. New upcoming arrivals and impending nuptials should be interesting in the next book. Lovely, entertaining series about life and its' various nuances as we grow older.
