He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.
Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.
Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.
Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.
Read an exclusive excerpt:
His smile made a shiver run down her spine. A pleasurable kind of shiver. One of anticipation. Something flickered in his eyes. Understanding, perhaps. With it, his smile faded. His eyes seemed to darken as he gazed intently into hers. His right hand rose to cup her cheek, the flat of his hand gentle against her skin. She couldn’t help but press into it. She was tempted to close her eyes, but she didn’t want to break the look passing between them. His face drew closer. Was this happening?
“Holly.” He whispered her name, as soft as a caress.
She feared her knees would buckle. Breathe, she reminded herself. Just breathe.
When their lips met, she closed her eyes and gave herself over to the wonderful sensations that swirled through her. She hadn’t known how much she’d wanted to be kissed by him until it happened.
His hand moved from the side of her face to the small of her back, freeing her to lift her arms to encircle his neck. At the same time, she rose on tiptoes, wanting more, wanting all. Her former fears, her excessive caution—it was all forgotten.
Of course, the kiss had to end eventually. It was Jed who drew back first, forcing Holly to look at him again. His dark eyes seemed to smolder, and her stomach tumbled in response. Then a slow smile tipped the corners of his mouth.
“This isn’t the setting where I expected that to happen.”
“You expected me to kiss you?” Amusement filled her question, and she realized how happy she felt. Happier than she’d felt in such a long time.
“Imagined it, then.”
“Oh, you’ve been imagining it.”
His voice deepened. “More than you know, Ms. Stanford. More than you know.”
She laughed aloud.
Jed glanced toward the band of sheep, and she followed his gaze to discover the sheepherder watching them and grinning. Jed gave the man a wave. “We have an audience.”
“So I see.” She waved to the sheepherder too. “It’s only fair, I suppose. You were taking pictures of him and his sheep.”
Jed chuckled. “At least he doesn’t have a camera.” He looked at her again. “Come on. We’d better start back to the car.”
She wished she could refuse. She wished they could stay right there and she could relive the kiss all over again. But then he placed his arm around her shoulders, and she realized she would have gone with him wherever he wanted to go.
