Can fate-and firemen-do it again? When General Hart and his matchmaking cronies almost burn down the church, quiet bookkeeper Poppy Nelson's ordinary life is turned on its heels. With a mischievous puppy underfoot, a mysterious painting under wraps, and hidden secrets unraveling, will art restorer Dylan Powell swoop in to save more than the town's beloved artifacts
"You can't go wrong with a Chris Keniston book!" RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author of the Haven Point series.
Come and stay in one of the quaint and cozy cottages at Hart Land-but be warned, once you meet the family and delightful cast of characters, you may never want to leave.
Fiona Hart is the devoted matriarch. Elegant, wise, and arts patron, but despite all her efforts, she has yet to find her own artistic outlet. Lucy isn't just a housekeeper, she's part of the family. She also fancies herself a real life Dolly Levy, except she's much better at cooking up trouble than the perfect match. Innkeeper and retired general Harold Hart believes in hard work, discipline, and whatever his beloved wife wants. Katie O'Leary runs the One Stop, makes the best Irish soda bread this side of the Blarney Stone, and no one is quite sure if it's more than her baking that has the magic touch. Did we mention the Harts have nine granddaughters?
Having grown up spending summers together on the lake, the cousins are as close as sisters-closer. Each woman knows there's no place like Hart Land. They can always count on their grandfather's gruff, their grandmother's sage advise, Lucy's fresh baked cookies, Katie's inspiration, the calming scent of fresh air-and each other.
Follow along with friends, family, neighbors, and guests as the Harts maneuver life's curves, and just maybe find love along the way.
