"When Todd Bronski realized an eight-year old boy had stolen his laptop, he was set to call the police. But then Jenni Anderson, little Cory's aunt, came to apologize, and, well, she was lovely.

"Jenni was grateful that Todd had decided to leave the police out of it and help teach Cory a better way. The man was handsome, intelligent, kind and caring with Cory. Todd awakened feelings she hadn't experienced in years.

"But Jenni wasn't looking for a man. She had way too much on her plate. Besides, Todd had agreed to be her new business partner, and she wasn't about to mix business with pleasure."

"ONCE, TWICE, TEN TIMES A BRIDESMAID! I, Dana Rose, do solemnly swear to say 'I won't' the next time someone asks me to be in their wedding party.

As if that isn't enough, the past is paying me a most unwelcome visit (my prodigal brother, my backstabbing sis). Then there's Mr. Practically Perfect, the ex who not only married someone else, but opened the business of our dreams-right across from my new shop! It's no wonder I've got problems! I'm thankful I've got my friends, the Sassy Sistahood, to rely on."

Sweet Devotion

Wayside, Oregon, population 17,900, seems like a Norman Rockwell painting come to life, with sixteen churches and a picturesque Main Street studded with cherry trees and flower borders. For caterer Amber Montgomery, Wayside is the perfect place to heal from her past as an abused wife and establish a new identity as the beloved local "cookie lady." For Police Chief Paul Evans, Wayside is the ideal town in which to raise his orphaned niece and nephew, far from the violence and grit of his former life as a D.C. cop.

But when a misunderstanding leads to Chief Evans hauling the feisty Amber to jail, this sleepy town begins to rock. And when these instant adversaries find themselves paired as chaperons on a Community Christian Church youth camping trip, both are forced to confront fears they'd rather ignore to save a life . . . and find the courage and faith to love.
