Candace Carmichael was just getting used to the lavish life when
everything went sour. Now the down-on-her-luck real estate agent is back
in Bigler, North Carolina, jobless and illegally rooming with her
mother in a swank retirement community. All this makes her wonder why
she ever considered her BFF Cheri's invitation to move back home. Life
in this small mountain town may not be as glamorous as the one she had
in Tampa, but she knows a girl can't be too choosy in this market.
Besides, everyone's happy to welcome Candy back—especially one handsome
widower named Turner . . .
Turner has grown up to be one
fine-looking piece of man candy—and looks even tastier in his sheriff's
uniform. Maybe that's why she couldn't resist kissing him when he pulled
her over for a traffic violation. Even if a relationship was part of
Candy's business plan, Turner would be off limits—he still wears his
wedding ring, four years after his wife died. If falling in love too
fast is a crime, Candy is soon guilty as charged and ready to be
fingerprinted. But is she ready to lock away her dreams and hand Turner
the keys to her heart?
