Phin Patterson is an educational consultant dissatisfied with his job and his life. On a mission to complete one last assignment before escaping his unfulfilling career and figure out what he wants, he accepts a commission from Donald Murdock at the New York State Education Department. Suddenly, he finds himself on his way to evaluate a tiny school in New York’s Southern Tier, not far from the town where he grew up. Now his only goal is to get in, do his job, and get out before anyone from his past remembers him.
That turns out to be easier said than done. Dani Sloane, the sharp-witted administrative assistant to the principal, learns the truth about why Phin is really there. With the help of her friends, she sets out to unmask him and force the local board of education to stop the plans that could ruin their school. Discovering that her sometime-lover is an old business associate of Phin’s only complicates both the situation and their relationship.
Meanwhile, Phin, who has committed himself to keeping his emotional distance, can’t resist the charm of the town and its residents—especially the school psychologist, who turns out to be an old friend he hasn’t seen in over twenty years. While Dani works to take him down and save her school, Phin wrestles with learning how to do the right thing, including telling the truth to the man with whom he’s already falling in love.

**I received this book free with Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review** This book rocked! Wonderful story about thinking you can just do your job, but ending up doing more, by being involved with the people and falling in love with the town, and trying to do what’s right instead of just getting by. There were many main characters that kept your interest in the story. It wasn’t just a happily ever after right from the beginning, the characters struggled with pressures of losing their control over the town school. The author did very well covering all the struggles. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it, I needed to know where the plot was leading too. The interest level just kept you coming back to the book to know if Phin, the main character, was going to do what’s right. Highly recommend this book, I will read more by this author. Sherry
