THE HOUSE THAT LOVE BUILT
This sweet story with a hint of mystery is touching and emotional. Humor sprinkled throughout balances the occasional seriousness. The development of the love story is paced perfectly so that the reader gets a real sense of the characters.
Single mother Brooke Holloway is still reeling after the loss of her husband two years before. Newcomer to town Owen Saunders bought a house to remodel after his divorce, but he still hasn’t moved on from that betrayal. When the two meet, there are some sparks that both want to deny, but a mystery surrounding Owen’s house draws them together. They first must forge a friendship before exploring anything further.
