Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania: population two thousand outside of tourist season.
And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed attempt at a relationship, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has saved: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.
Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works.
For a time.
But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. What begins as an immediate friendship quickly turns into something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something that Catherine is afraid to trust.
Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?
This is a heartwarming story of two people who despite their differences find a way to each other through tragedy. The characters are extremely relatable. If you like sweet romances that bloom from adversity you will like this one. It’s not as steamy as the usual books I read but it was still an enjoyable read. I really wish the book had been written in a dual point of view. I think it would have been interesting to know what the male main character was thinking in some parts of the story.
Most of the obstacles in this story were self imposed by the main female character which was a bit frustrating at times. This is my first time reading a book by this author and I will definitely be reading more. It’s fun to read a lighthearted love story every once in a while.
