Gregory makes a welcome return to contemporary romance with a heartwarming new series set in Lonesome Way, Mont. Shattered hearts and dreams haunt several characters in this tale; it’s just the ticket for fans of tender and emotional romance!
With her marriage destroyed by her husband’s unfaithfulness, Sophie McPhee decides to sell her business as part of the divorce and return to her hometown. A local diner is closing and Sophie sees an opportunity to open a bakery, cleverly named A Bun in the Oven. Sophie doesn’t want anything to do with men at this point, despite her grandmother’s gentle prodding, but when she sees her childhood crush, Rafe Tanner, the sparks still fly. Rafe’s romantic past has also been rocky as his wife abandoned him and their young daughter Ivy. With both their emotional guards up, are either Sophie or Rafe ready to give love a second chance?
