Laurie Matthews left her nursing job in shame. The town of Escape has welcomed her, and she now owns the local diner. She's attracted to the handsome widower who comes in for coffee and a hot meal but keeps her distance. Everyone she's ever loved has died - her grandparents, her parents, her husband, and one other - one she still can't bear to think about.
A romantic relationship isn't on the agenda for either of them, but when the diner falls on hard times, Tom steps in to help, paving the way for them both to escape the loneliness in their lives.

This is a sweet romance is a small town. The characters are older and have suffered loss in their lives. This gives them a different look at life and what's important. I recommend
A sweet story. Although I liked the story, I found myself wanting more. I would have loved to read more about how their relationship progressed. I did find both characters to be strong and very likable. And I definitely had a good case of the 'feels' at the end.
