ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and nonfiction. An avid knitter, harp player and non-reformed chocoholic, she spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools and finding new ways to avoid housework. Allie grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in speech from Northwestern University and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The "dare from a friend" to begin writing eight years ago has blossomed into a career that includes numerous public speaking engagements, two books on parenting; Becoming a Chief Home Officer and Facing Every Mom's Fears and now novels for Steeple Hill Books. She is the mother of two children and, most recently, a Havanese dog named Bella.


ABOUT THE BOOK

Building their future

Charlotte Taylor isn't good at playing it safe. Reeling from the sudden loss of her job and her beloved grandmother, Charlotte knows buying a dilapidated cottage in Gordon Falls isn't exactly practical. Especially since she just hired the one man who may love the property more than she does to help renovate it. Volunteer firefighter and part-time contractor Jesse Sykes can't stay mad at Charlotte for very long. Though she snatched up the home he'd planned on purchasing, Charlotte's dreams are big enough for both of them…if only she'd let him in. Charlotte promised she'd never fall for a first responder, but is it already too late?

My Review:
 Charlotte Taylor has officially lost it. After losing bother her job and her loving grandmother, she has had what seems to be a mid-life crisis of sorts when she buys herself a cottage to renovate. Not long after buying said cottage she hires someone to take over the repairs. Jesse Sykes, didn't expect to receive a call about a kitchen fire at a cottage that he himself planned to buy. He finds out now, much to his dismay that it has a new owner. And if the blonde beauty who had bought the place would not of been so pretty, he probably wouldn't of offered to help her renovate it either.

 True, that Charlotte finds Jesse to be both charming and mighty handsome, but she doesn't believe that the first responder is the one for her. Her family and friends feel very different as far as Jesse is concerned. Jesse feels that they have a future together if she would just let him in. Soon God is at work in the lives of the two of them and they both may just see a future that wasn't quite clear to them before, or do they?
