Liz is a single mom to her six-year-old daughter, Paisley. She's been married twice, but neither of them worked out, so she and Paisley live in a small apartment. It seems like nothing in their small apartment works very well, including the kitchen faucet that she's already had fixed twice. She's at the end of her rope when she calls the apartment maintenance people, hoping against hope that they can fix the leak. What she gets is Sloane Branden, the attractive owner of her apartment complex. He happily fixes the leak for her, and tells her to call him if she ever needs anything else. Liz isn't quite sure why she can't stop thinking about him, she's sworn off men forever, and she knows that he too had a bad marriage experience. But sometimes you can't stop your heart from falling in love with someone. Will Liz give into her heart, or will she make the biggest mistake of her life?
This is a novella, so it's really short. I like how even though it's short, you get to "know" the characters in the book enough to care about what happens to them. I thought that the plot was really cute and I'm way excited that there are going to be other Aliso Creek Novellas for me to read! I can't wait to get to know all the Aliso Creek "Five"!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
