In this very readable romance, Kincaid shows that she’s an author on the rise. With a good plotline, attention to flow and a lovely story idea, this book is a fine winter escape. Just a touch more character depth and this author is on her way to the top.

After an especially horrible week, Bellamy Blake decides that a spa getaway in the mountains with her two best friends is the only cure for her slump. When a dead transmission leaves her stranded, the only bright side is the hot mechanic. Shane Griffin has been hiding out on the mountain for a year. His life has plenty of complications and he doesn’t need another in the form of a Miata-driving city girl. Bellamy and Shane have one week together while they wait for car parts, and each can’t get the other off their mind. Bellamy has to get a grip on her life and return to the city, doesn’t she?
