Kendall Grisbaum has loved and lost the man who was her everything, her firefighter husband. Still struggling with his death, she is torn between moving on and staying loyal to his memory. Kendall has decisions to make and as she begins her new venture in opening a bakery business, she finds herself having feelings for her Brad, her husband’s best friend and her shoulder to cry on.
Brad has had feelings for Kendall since before she married his best friend. Knowing it will never happen, he reluctantly agrees to his sisters matchmaking, wanting to settle down and start his own family. However, he can’t keep his mind off Kendall and when he steps in to help as a handyman in her bakery, the chemistry is as sweet as apple pie ala mode when they are together. Fragile and new, they begin a relationship but Kendall isn’t sure she can put her heart out there again, for Brad is a cop and she already lost one man in the line of duty before.
If you read Georgie On His Mind, she is back helping her friend Kendall and her brother Brad. Delightful story, I loved the pacing between Kendall and Brad, it was not sudden it took time to sort out and was a sweet treat once they came together. Big fan of Jennifer Shirk’s work, this is just another example of her creativity and ability to create intriguing characters. High praise.
