Pastry chef Michelle Nelson feels indebted to her hometown of Carbon Hill. Its generosity, along with her Miss Horseradish title, made it possible for her to attend college and start her career. Ryan Slater, Carbon Hill born and raised, still works the family business, the Pins and Pints bowling alley. When Michelle and Ryan find themselves paired for Carbon Hill's first annual scavenger hunt, they begin to wonder if they can overcome the bitterness left from one night together five years ago to win the greatest treasure of all.

Romance readers will enjoy Carr's comical, heartwarming tale of second-chance love and settling old scores. This novel has just enough sparks and sizzle to keep readers enticed. The lovable characters will bring a smile to your face. (Jul., 272 pp., $14.00)
