2015 CAROLYN READERS CHOICE AWARD NOMINEE
 If only life had a refresh button...Kate Mitchell never planned to be a 31 year-old widowed single mom, but when her soon-to-be-EX husband up and dies, her dreams of finishing college and starting over are thrown in the air like a game of '52 pick-up.' When she's given a leave of absence from work and told to "quit or recommit," Kate retreats to idyllic Sugar Falls, New Hampshire, to figure out whether she can discover her passion and pay the bills. Cue the fresh air, summer sunshine and one sexy local contractor.

Tall, dark, and handy...Volunteer fireman and all-around hunky guy in a toolbelt, Jim Pearson has sworn off complicated women with messy baggage. They cling to his nice-guy stability and skills with a power saw just long enough to straighten out their lives and move on... but then he meets the cute single mom staying at Grams' lake house for the summer.  While a sizzling attraction draws them together, Jim's distrust of complicated women and Kate's incredibly complicated life threaten to pull them apart. But forces beyond their control--match-making grandmothers, the lazy backdrop of summer, and their own reckoning with the past--conspire to make them risk it all... and bet on love.

From the Inside Flap:

     "I don't mind you standing there," he added as he pushed aside the curtain and stepped from the tub, scrubbing his hair with the towel. "But you are somewhat to blame for this."
     "I am?" she squeaked. Heavens, he was good-looking all wet and frumpled. His water-soaked T-shirt was plastered to his chest. Kate's tongue became the Sahara.
     "Mmm hmm," he nodded. Now he was finger-combing his hair, a crooked grin making his face boyishly appealing as he dropped the towel on his toolbox. "I was thinking about you, you see--"
     "You were?" Kate backed up against the sink, the small bathroom feeling suddenly much smaller. Dangerously small. As small as the pocket in her lungs still capable of holding air. "What were you thinking?"
     He paused, his eyes dancing. "I'm thinking I ought to keep that to myself."
     "Why?"
     "I don't think we know each other well enough for me to tell you that."
     Suddenly the flannel of her robe felt very hot on her skin. Kate sucked air through her nose and stared at his lips, that crooked smile teasing her, beckoning her.
     "I want to know," she said, her voice barely a whisper...
