Her past. His secrets. They have more in common than she knows.
Maisy is happily content with the life she’s built for herself and her young son in small-town Prescott, Montana. Her child is thriving, her business is growing, and her family is as close as they’ve ever been. But when a handsome stranger walks into the lobby of her motel, her simple life is swept up in a wave of affection for his gentle heart. None of those feelings can be trusted, though. She made that mistake before with another man. The man she murdered.
Hunter was a different man when he first saw Maisy Holt from afar. He took one look at her and ran in the opposite direction. But years later, he’s back in Montana and unable to keep his distance. He shouldn’t have tried to find her but he never was good at rejecting temptation. The promise of the good she could bring into his life is too hard to resist. Maybe if he can disguise the lies and hide the deceit, he can keep her from learning the truth. Because his only chance at a future with her is by burying his past.

I've been waiting to get to this book. I desperately wanted Maisy's happily ever after. I was not disappointed in her journey.
We met Maisy earlier in the series and have seen her from time to time since. Out of all of the characters, I was waiting to get to her book. She is such a strong, independent character.
As the previous books of Perry's I have read (almost all of them at this point), the writing in the book was spot on. We get a slower budding relationship. I like the slower builds. They feel more real. More genuine. I get to connect with the characters and their journey much more. That's the case with this one.
Single parent books are usually hit or miss with me. I have read some in the past that weren't really believable or true to single parenthood. This one tackled single parenthood almost perfectly. Maisy's struggles. Her fears. Her past. It's all relevant in raising her son. The idea of introducing new people in a child's life isn't a pleasant one. It brings on all new challenges and fears. Perry tackled it with ease.
I have one more book in this series to read. It's waiting for me. And I can't wait to get to it. If you haven't tackled this series yet, you are most certainly missing out.
