His quiet life is about to get a sexy remodel…
Sets aren't the only thing Ryder builds when volunteering his construction expertise at the local theater. A surprising friendship forms between him and a vivacious New Yorker. Working side-by-side with the visiting make-up artist whose ready smile and warm brown eyes slowly thaw the ice around his heart, he warms to the idea of acting on their attraction.
But when Sophia's close-knit Italian family summons her back to the Big Apple, Ryder's reminded of the past and how his ex-girlfriend chose family obligations over him. To make matters worse, he discovers Sophia lied about her family, because they're the ones undercutting his bids and threatening his business. Did he give his heart to the right woman this time, or will he end up alone and discarded again, like last month's scenery?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
4 stars I purchased Wine and Scenery: A Citizen Soldier Series:Guarding the Hearts in the Pocono Valley book 7/Ryder by Donna Michaels and this review was given freely. Ryder's story is one of the fall of the eternal bachelor. Juggling attraction, love, business, and family, Ryder and Sophia's story is a rocky second chance at love romance. Their attraction turns to love as their friends both offer advice and nudge Ryder and sophia together.
