    Growing up in Sweetland for some, such as Nikki Brockington, was wonderful; for the Cantrell family, not so great. As soon as they are able, all the Cantrell children quickly leave town, except for one. When their grandmother, the woman who raised them, dies unexpectedly, they all return back to Sweetland. Nikki practically grew up with the Cantrell’s and has always had a bit of a tendre for Quinn, though he’s never noticed her. But now, Nikki is all grown up and Quinn can’t seem to keep his mind off of her. When matters keep Quinn in Sweetland for longer than expected, a relationship blooms between Nikki and Quinn. As things start to really heat up between them, unexpected feeling grow and leaves both of them with a choice, find a way to be together, or give up the love that is developing between them.

    As the first book in a series, the beginning chapters of this book have a lot of background information to cover to lay the foundation for the coming novels. Lacey Baker does a great job with keeping the story line moving while laying the foundations of the series. I really enjoyed Nikki and Quinn’s story, reading along as Quinn tries to face his demons while back in his hometown. Nikki is an independent lady who understands the value of trust and love, and her character depicts this very well. The puppies are a great bonus, the way they seem to find mischief and add an element of humor to the story. I look forward to reading other novels in the series to continue into the lives of the other Cantrell siblings. This book was received from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

    Pay attention you might miss a life lesson or two while

    The Cantrell family comes home to Sweetland to bury with love their beloved grandmother
    and figure out what to do with her Bed and Breakfast business.  No one is more surprised than
    Quinn by what he has returned to and as the oldest he knows the responsibility sitting on his shoulders
    to guides his brothers and sisters.  Quinn is a successful oncologist who built a life away from where
    he grew up but now wonders is that place he lives really as warm and inviting as Sweetland.  T
    hen Quinn meets Nikki Brockington the one person ready to fill in for his grandmother’s managerial
    duties who also has the ability to make him realize it may be time to let his heart love again.

    Nikki it turns out is a woman with a serious unrequited crush for Quinn but nothing would prevent her
    from keeping business away from pleasure, or so she tells herself.   All it turns out is not a quiet and
    serene at the B, B as the siblings thought, and though no one planned to stay.  But when the perceived
    serenity turns out to be non-existent everyone is prepared to stay until there is resolution to the problem.  
    As Quinn and Nikki try to get to the crux of the problem working closely takes on a new meaning.  Quinn finds
    Nikki’s sense of humor, ability to get the job done without breaking a sweat, and when she stops talking
    she does listen to his thoughts.  Quinn finds these character traits more attractive than he ever thought
    possible and may now over rule his obsession to her great butt.

    Lacey Baker has created a winner with her mixed bag of family characters.  
    Every reader would be proud to say they are related to this bunch and want to own one of the adorable
    puppies that are so full of character and attitude.
