Perhaps buying a cute fixer-upper in a lovely small town hours from her Chicago apartment is not the wisest thing to do, but Charlotte is not one to curl up in the fetal position on the floor when adversity strikes. Oh no, she marches straight ahead, choosing the perfect light fixtures and custom accoutrements that will best suit her dream cottage. Contractor and volunteer fireman Jesse Sykes is hired to do the renovations and keep her within her budget, but he finds himself falling for Charlotte and her enthusiasm (which I must say is contagious).
Allie Pleiter writes with warmth and charm. I could relate to Charlotte's impulsive choices and passion for life, love, and God.
For anyone out there who needs a delightful romantic escape with lots of heart, this one's for you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and nonfiction. An avid knitter, harp player and non-reformed chocoholic, she spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools and finding new ways to avoid housework. Allie grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in speech from Northwestern University and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The "dare from a friend" to begin writing eight years ago has blossomed into a career that includes numerous public speaking engagements, two books on parenting; Becoming a Chief Home Officer and Facing Every Mom's Fears and now novels for Steeple Hill Books. She is the mother of two children and, most recently, a Havanese dog named Bella.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Building their future
Charlotte Taylor isn't good at playing it safe. Reeling from the sudden loss of her job and her beloved grandmother, Charlotte knows buying a dilapidated cottage in Gordon Falls isn't exactly practical. Especially since she just hired the one man who may love the property more than she does to help renovate it. Volunteer firefighter and part-time contractor Jesse Sykes can't stay mad at Charlotte for very long. Though she snatched up the home he'd planned on purchasing, Charlotte's dreams are big enough for both of them…if only she'd let him in. Charlotte promised she'd never fall for a first responder, but is it already too late?
