Jenna Sutton celebrated her twenty-first birthday by persuading Trent Wagoner, the guy she’d been crushing on for months, to sleep with her. When he broke her heart and crushed her dreams by rejecting her afterward, a devastated Jenna tried to end her life.
Trent has told his side of the story. So has Jenna’s mom, and her cousin, and just about everyone else in the small Georgia town of Burton.
Now it’s Jenna’s turn.
Over two years later, Jenna’s finally figuring out her life. Her job at the county historical society is steady and predictable, two elements she appreciates right now. She’s living on her own, and her world is peaceful, if lonely.
That is, until Lincoln Turner comes to town.
When Linc’s wife was killed in a car accident, she left him with two small children and a bleak future. Six years later, he’s a recovering alcoholic who’s just gotten his kids back and is ready to tackle a new position as co-owner of a building restoration company . . . in Burton.
Jenna isn’t looking for love, and Linc definitely doesn’t want any attachments. And neither of them are ready for the sparks that fly when a huge project brings them together. Still, the road to true love has more bumps than they could imagine. Making their way to a happy ending won’t be easy.
But this is Burton, and happily-ever-afters are a specialty of the house.

I love the characters Tawdra captures in the stories she writes, this book certainly captured my heart. The book can be a stand-alone or enhance your love of the characters in this little town of Burton, GA. This welcoming old fashioned town has a place in my heart with so many great people that have a story to tell. I wish I could visit and interact with them, readers feel like they know them from the insight the author brings through the pages. Tawdra's gift of story telling is proven yet again in this novel! She creates full dimensional characters that evoke so many emotions, truly a gifted writer. This is a don't miss book, she will have you "hooked line and sinker" and begging for more like me. She soothes my soul with her knack of giving me a complex story yet a happily-ever-after ending that I need in a world of heartbreak. This is the best money spent on an entertaining escape from the real world of bad politics and unthinkable violence. This is one of my favorite authors, I know she will capture your heart too. Move over Nicholas Sparks, this is my new favorite author!
This is another fine addition to the "Small Town Georgia Romance" series by Tawdra Kandle. One thing I love about this series is that the characters recur in all the other books - you really get to know them and feel like one of the gang. In this one - Jenna Sutton finally gets to tell her story. If you've read the other books - you know Jenna's story is a tragic one - but she is healing. In walks Lincoln Turner who has also had a tragic past and is in the process of healing himself and trying to be a good single dad to his two kids after his wife was killed in a car accident. Love is the last thing either of them want, but it may be what both of them need. These books are feel good romances. While all of them have some sad history or drama - they always have an ending that will put a smile on your face. I highly recommend Tawdra's books.
