Aspen Cove welcomes you back for more love, hope, and happily ever afters…
Author Reese Arden has been hiding most of her life. Some would call her a wallflower, but she’s the root of that flower, hidden far beneath the soil, where no one sees her, hears her, or shames her. Her lifelong stutter has silenced her, but when she moves to Aspen Cove, she vows to give herself a new beginning and find the courage to be heard. An encounter with a handsome hitchhiker spurs her inquisitive writer’s brain. Tucked inside his pocket, next to his heart, is a mysterious pink envelope. Could this man be her muse?
The army created Brandon Fearless; he’s a protector at heart and driven to succeed. When his sister, and only living relative, passes unexpectedly, his world crumbles. Tasked with clearing out her apartment, he comes across a pink envelope that holds the secrets to her hidden illness. Inside is a note asking her to go to Aspen Cove. Dealing with the pain of not being there when she was alive, he promises not to abandon her in death. Her quest becomes his, but what will he find when he gets there?
A woman building a future. A man unearthing his past. Will what they uncover lead to heartbreak or true love?
