Escape to the picturesque, tiny town of Perfect, Indiana. . .
Paige Langford has it all: wealth, beauty, and ambition. Yet when her boyfriend’s betrayal costs her both her dream job and her reputation, she retreats to her brother’s rural home in Indiana to heal and figure out the rest of her life. There she meets Ryan Malloy, a gruff, hard-drinking cowboy whose surly temper can’t hide the pain in his eyes.
Ryan has lost it all. He is a man on the edge, haunted by war and a lost love, who finds solace in a bottle — until a job offer from his former commander provides a glimmer of hope, and a second chance for the future.
Paige has always avoided brooding bad boys like Ryan, yet he might be exactly what she needs, while Ryan, the man who thought he had nothing left to live for, is tempted to risk his battered heart one last time...

Tired of the same old, same old romances? Looking for something emotional and edgy, but not violent and full of villains? Look no further than Barbara Longley's The Difference a Day Makes. Ms. Longley is adept at making a reader care deeply about characters who are, in fact, worthy of caring about. Ryan Malloy has been piling blame on himself since the tragic day that took his fiance from his life forever. He's full of relentless guilt and mental pain, but has a chance at pulling himself out of his suicidal slump when his former Army commander offers him a job. Paige Langford knows what it's like for Ryan because her brother suffered from PTSD, too. And Paige is suffering from her own brand of guilt and blame after her first brutal foray into the corporate world. These two butt horns the moment they meet, each pushing the other to confront the demons that haunt them and each holding a helping hand out to the other in a desperate hope to live a life worth living. Even though this was the second book set in Perfect, Indiana I didn't feel as if I'd missed anything by not reading the first book. However, after getting a taste for Ms. Longley's ability to tug at my heartstrings, I'm definitely going to want to let her take me back to Perfect again and again.
