Summary

The last thing international photojournalist Lucy O'Brien expected when she returned to her hometown was for her mother to ask her to shoot photos for a Calendar Girls-like calendar.

Of course, it's all for a good cause - raising money for breast cancer. Lucy agrees to help, ribald photos and all. It's not like she's told anyone her secret reason for coming home: that a recent trauma overseas threatens her livelihood. But her longtime BFF, Dr. Andy Hale, isn't letting her keep secrets from him. He understands heartache. After losing the love of a lifetime, he's now a widower raising a young son.

Everyone in town is wondering if the boy next door and the zany traveler will finally move from friends to lovers. At first the sparks of attraction fly amid their easygoing banter over ice cream cones. But there are deeper feelings at work here, and both must uncover the seeds of their new beginnings together, realizing there's nothing more powerful than love and friendship to pave the way.

Best book in the series!

I loved the dialogue! Andy and Lucy's friendship is heartwarming. Andy's sensitivity is refreshing and Lucy's relationship with her mother is realistic.
