Ready or not…love will find a way
Single dad Hogan Guthrie is getting his life back on track, and working as the "barbecue master" at a local diner is just a temporary detour. He and restaurant owner Violet Shaw constantly butt heads…until one night they end up mingling other parts instead. Hogan thought he had the recipe for happiness all figured out. But loyal, carefree Violet is daring him to trust his impulses…and see just how sweet small-town living—and loving—can be.
Nathan Hawley traded his SWAT team credentials for a sheriff's badge, but a gorgeous new neighbor is shaking up his orderly life. Nathan has a hunch there's more to Brooklin Sweet than meets the eye—but given her caution about getting involved, he has his work cut out for him. Still, there's something about the elusive beauty Nathan can't walk away from—and helping her come to terms with her past might pave the way to the future they both secretly long for.

Ms. Foster returns us to small town Ohio to continue the story of the Gutheri brothers and their friends. This time the focus is on 2 couples Hogan and Violet and Nathan and Brooklin.
I normally don't like books that split attention between two couples, but these two stories are interconnected and woven together very well.
Hogan and Brooklin both come with baggage that makes the idea of a romantic relationship scary. It takes patience on the part of Violet and Nathan to bring them around.
Add in a little suspense and we have a well written and entertaining book with Foster's hallmark of devoted families, wonderfully alpha males, and strong heroines.
