She could be The One

If he’ll let her in.

The rustic mountain town of Golden, Georgia, is the ideal place for crime scene investigator Deke Matthews to heal after a tragedy left him questioning everything. But there’s another reason he’s here, and moonlighting as an adventure guide provides the perfect cover. It doesn’t include falling for his boss.

Attorney Grace Harper is back in Golden only long enough to save her family business. Just when Deke has found the woman to share his life with…

Other Books In This Series

Ever since meeting Dante Matthews in The Lawman’s Secret Vow I’ve been eagerly waiting for more Matthews brothers stories. As such I was delighted to see Deke as the hero in this second book in the series.

The setting is quaint and so well-drawn that you can almost smell the pine trees and hear the waterfall in Grace’s happy place. And poor Grace definitely needs a happy place where she can go to decompress from trying to run the world – or at least her family. Deke, too, needs a place to heal after a tragic loss and the subsequent self-guilt he’s put upon himself. These two characters are perfectly suited for each other – to be a soft place to land & an advocate and support. As well as some pretty swoony kisses and spark-filled chemistry!

Bottom Line: This is a great series for readers who love a clean and sweet romance that still has some sizzle. The continuing storyline from the first book carries well into this book – tantalizing us with tidbits of information while also leaving us dying to know more & easily catching readers up who haven’t yet read book #1. Tender & swoony, the plot, characters, and setting are set smoothly against the writer’s easy read flow.

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars/Loved it!

KissingBook Level: 3 / May forget to breathe on occasion.

    I’d like to read about what kind of adventures Deke is leading people on — & what happened in his past as a crime investigator (what kinds of things DO crime investigators notice???)
