Love can happen at first sight
But life can change in an instant
Moving to Bedford Park is Faith Sorenson's only hope of escaping her controlling parents and cheating ex-fiance. Vowing to never get involved again with someone she couldn't trust, she swears off men.
That is until she meets her sexy new neighbor who's determined to tear down the walls she's built around her heart. He looks at her in a way she's never experienced before, a way that sears her soul. Now Faith is beginning to think he might just be worth the risk.
After overcoming a childhood wrought with fear and self-doubt, Ben Reynolds is now a confident, outgoing hunk of a man who longs for a wife and family of his own. Serial dating has not helped him achieve that goal so far. But when Ben lays eyes on the feisty red head next door he's sure he's found the person meant for him. Now he just has to prove to her he's a man she can trust.
Hot nights and a newfound trust have Faith thinking she might get her happy-ever-after. But a twist of fate has other plans, and now Ben must gamble his last chance of happiness on a daring marriage of convenience. Unfortunately, only time will tell if their love is enough to overcome the obstacles life has thrown at them.

Loved it. Both Ben and Faith have deep rooted issues from their pasts to overcome before they can truly be happy. Ben was bullied as a child and Faith was always told what to do and never allowed to be independent. She came from a social circle where appearances were all that mattered. The personal history of these characters was told very well without making me want to scoff and yell at them to get over it and move on. These issues the author gave them are real and the way she developed their story together was beautifully done. I felt sorry for the characters because I've known some who have had similar childhoods. Connie Dave seems to understand how something that some may see as unimportant or small can impact a person into adulthood. Ben and Faith's lives are defined by their pasts and they are each what the other needs to be able to overcome history and see their potential become reality. This story is something you could read in a biography and not doubt any of it. It's realistic and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a great read.
What a wonderful story this book was I just wanted more and more of these lovely characters. The author had me laughing out loud and almost crying at this very well written story. The book was very relatable and contained love, friendship, family drama, secrets, challenges, and illness to name just a few. This is the first book of the Bedford Park Brides series and I can’t wait to read more about this town and the people we have already meet as well as more of this very talented author. I have voluntarily reviewed this ARC book and this is my honest review. I loved this book and I definitely highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a great love story. The author did a great job if this was her very first book Well Done.
Connie Dave has a well rounded style. Her characters are realistic and the obstacles they face are identifiable and relatable. Like all humans, Ben and Faith weren't meant to be perfect. Knowing that they were flawed are what draws readers in to their romantic entanglement. Finding Faith is a roller coaster of emotions that is meant to be explored.
