Jacie Metcalf has lost her job, received an eviction notice, and totaled her car en route to an interview. Then she meets a handsome stranger whose quick thinking and selfless actions save her life.

Chas Thibeadaux has his heart set on becoming the owner of the family business, CT Inspectorate, when his grandfather, G-Paw, lets go of the reins. The day Jacie pops into his life, he begins to wonder about his priorities. This little spitfire is messing with his heart and his mind. And when G-Paw offers her a job, Chas knows the complications have only just begun.

This is a delightfully fast-paced romance with just the right touch of humor. Ms. Guillaume beautifully portrays characters willing to work hard in life, yet who seek out that one true love for a complete sense of happiness. The author has obviously done her research to authenticate the fine details of this story. Additionally, I savored how she wove the characters lives together so that neither knew what hit them!
