"A delicious treat. Don't miss a visit to Apple Valley!" --Emily March, New York Times bestselling author

In Apple Valley, Washington, true friends are never far, neighbors can help heal the loneliest hearts--and longed-for dreams can unexpectedly become real . . .

Charlotte Garrison's second chance is falling into place just like she's carefully planned. A few more sales of her heavenly sweets and she'll be able to turn the empty shop on Main Street into her own bakery--a plan much more sensible than ever again risking her heart. But when a rambunctious three-year-old girl lands on town deputy Max Stanford's doorstep, Charlotte finds helping the good-looking deputy care for her is sparking the most impossible dreams . . .

Max has never been much for settling down. But while he finds out if little Zuzu is really his daughter, Charlotte's warmth and caring makes him want to prove he's worthy of her trust. And as they struggle to come to terms with their pasts, Max will do whatever it takes to show Charlotte home is where dreams come true--and he and Zuzu are all the love and home she'll ever need.

McCoy’s second Apple Valley smalltown contemporary (after The House on Main Street) is sweet as pie. After a heartbreaking marriage to a cheater, Charlotte Garrison gives up on love, makes tasty treats for all the town’s special events, and dreams of opening her own bakery. Although Sheriff Max Stanford has endeavored to remain unencumbered by romantic entanglements, that resolution is turned on its ear when a flaky girlfriend dumps three-year-old Zuzu on him on the way to Vegas, insisting she’s his daughter. Max turns to Charlotte for help , and Charlotte opens her heart to the precocious and mischievous little girl. Max thinks there’s room for him as well, but Charlotte’s afraid of being hurt again. Plenty of smalltown characters chime in as the story meanders gently along like a switchback two-lane road up a country hill. Agent: Melissa Jeglinski, Knight Agency. (Aug.)

    4 STARS

    I like Apple Valley. This is the second book in the series. It starts right after The House on Main Street. Actually the epilogue of the House on Main street is the first chapter of The Cottage on the Corner. They can stand alone but I liked them both.

    Zuzu is a cute new character. She is three. She tugs at your heart, and made me smile a lot.

    Town deputy Max Stanford is single and plans to never marry and have kids. He dates a lot but is always up front about not being serious.

    Charlotte Garrison's is a baker. Her past is a mystery. Their is a rumor that one type of her chocolate cupcakes is so good it makes men propose marriage after eating it. All the single women want to buy the cupcakes or get the recipe for it. Charlotte has stopped making them and won't share her secret recipe. She does not date and is a widow.

    Max comes home from the wedding of the Sheriff and finds his ex-girl friend their with her daughter. Morgan tells Max that Zuzu is his daughter and she needs him to watch her as she needs to go to Las Vegas for a job. She just takes off. Max is sure Zuzu is not his.

    Max is working double shifts to help cover for the Sheriff to have a weekend with his new wife. He has had no sleep with Zuzu and needs to find a baby sitter for her for the day. He is desperate when he asks Charlotte for help.

    I like the small town feel of the book. How everyone is curious about Zuzu and sees her in her p.j.s and finds things for her.

    I also like how Zimmerman Charlotte's grumpy neighbor helps Charlotte take care of Zuzu. I wanted to see more of him.

    Someone keeps breaking into Charlotte's house while she is out delivering her baked goods. Max feels like he owes Charlotte and helps her.

    The setting is the small town of Apple Valley, WA

    It is just a charming town and story. There is plenty of drama, romance and a little mystery. I was sorry to see it end. It is also a clean read.

    I was given this ebook to read so I could give a honest review of it. Received it from Net Galley and Kensington.

    The characters are lively with realistic problems and feelings.

    The characters are lively with realistic problems and feelings. The town is quintessential small-town America, where everyone knows your name and pokes their nose in your business. I found myself engaged right along with Max and Charlotte as they dealt with their fears and troubles, growing and changing as they evaluated what they wanted for themselves and their lives.
