Carolanne returns home to her small town to make amends with her father. She also returned home to celebrate her best friend’s wedding. Never mind the fact that her law partner is hot and someone she has known all of her life. She is just not the type to mix work and her professional life. Little did she know that in the end they will mesh and mesh well?
Conner always had feelings for Carolanne. He just never thought that she would want to have feelings for him back. He just wanted to be in her life anyway that he could because he cared and loved her. But in the end when he put his heart on the table he realized that it was the best thing that he could have ever done.
Throughout the book it became clear that Conner still had feelings for Carolanne. The big issue was that they worked together and saw each other every day. Carolanne did not want to lose his friendship or him as a business partner. But when a murder occurs in their small town, they began to work together more and more. They even did different parts of their own investigation but always ended up telling each other what they found out and comparing notes.
After everything was solved and the case was closed. Conner finally decided to do what he always wanted to do….
I fell in love with this book from the very beginning. The synopsis is what made me want to read it. The author did a wonderful job bringing the right amount of romance and suspense. I highly recommend the book to those who like a little murder and mystery in their romance books.
Welcome to Adams Grove…where the wedding cakes are sweet, but the recipe is murder.
For years, Carolanne Baxter dreamed of a life beyond Adams Grove. Being the daughter of the town drunk was no picnic, so when college offered her a chance for escape, she took it. Now Carolanne has returned home, finally ready to make amends with her father, Ben, and to celebrate the wedding of her best friends Jill and Garrett. Of course, the fact that Connor Buckham, her sexy new law partner and Garrett’s best man, happens to be the same guy the town matchmaker named as Carolanne’s perfect match…well! That’s just icing on the cake.
But Carolanne’s hopes for a fresh start are dashed when a dead body surfaces during Jill and Garrett’s wedding reception…and Ben Baxter becomes the prime suspect. The murder throws the town into uproar, threatening to destroy the tentative peace between father and daughter—and to derail the budding romance between Carolanne and Connor. Has the matchmaker’s perfect streak come to end? Or will the truth finally bring Carolanne the happy ending she’s dreamed of for so long?
