Ms. Sunshine meets Mr. Grumpy! From USA Today bestselling author R.L. Kenderson.
“Sometimes, not knowing where you’re going will lead you to where you need to be.”
My workplace eliminated my position the same month my relationship ended. With nothing keeping me in Richmond, Virginia, I get in my car and head northeast, unsure of where I’ll end up.
Until I walk into The Busy Bean Café.
With the Help Wanted sign and the quote on the wall meant for me, I know I’ve found my new home.
I gave up my executive job in Boston to come home to help run my family’s hardware store and to open my own handcrafted furniture business. I have specific plans for my life.
Those plans don’t include the coffee shop’s new flighty barista even if she is cute as hell.
But when I become Charli’s landlord, I find it harder than ever to stay away from her. And soon, I don’t want to.
With her personal and professional life in flux Charli decides that she needs a fresh start and a chance stop at the Busy Bean in Vermont feels right so she decides to stay. Everyone in town is making her feel welcome except for her sexy yet cantankerous neighbour.
Returning to Vermont wasn’t part of Gabe’s plans but his family needs him so that is where he is as he helps out at the family business. All he wants is to be left alone and live his life but his new outgoing neighbor isn’t about to let that happen.
The banter between them is humorous and the attraction hot as what started out as a physical relationship became so much more once they opened their hearts to the possibilities of what they could have with each other.
