How can she resist?

After a painful breakup and the loss of her job, Cinnamon Smith feels battered and bruised. The only place to go is her best friend Fran's bed-and-breakfast in the small coastal town of Dunlin Shores, Oregon. The first person she meets on her arrival is Nick Mahoney, Fran's handyman. Cinnamon's attraction to Nick is immediate, and the feeling is definitely mutual.

But Cinnamon has spent years working toward a certain kind of life, a life she can't have with Nick. Spending time in Dunlin Shores and with him is beginning to change all that. Then she gets a job offer that will put her career goals back on track... Which means choosing between the life she's always wanted and the love that's right in front of her.

Cinnamon's boyfriend went back to his wife and she had to quit her job because of the scandal. She has come to visit her best friend and search for a new job. Nick her friends handyman really likes her but feels he isn't good enough for this educated lady. Good story with strong and believable characters.joy943

I found this to be interesting with a slow build romance that had lots of sparks to keep the sizzle going, for Nick it was about keeping his secret and for Cinnamon it was about needing stability. Both faught the attraction. I loved the community and how they were all fighting to save something so important to that very aspect of their lives, it's how you would hope a small town would be and very friendly. This is the first book I've read by this author and won a copy in a giveaway, this review was not a stipulation of that win and is my honest opinion. I enjoyed it so much I'm.going to buy the rest of the series, to me that says it all. I read a diverse selection of genres but sometimes it is really great to get back to a straight forward but not easy going romance.

Can Cinnamon find love, friendship and a job in Dunlin Shores? She is visiting with her friend Fran while trying to overcome her lost job and her broken heart. She is not planning to fall in love nor to stay in this small town. But while trying to help keeping the cranberry factory from closing she can’t help but feel an instant attraction to Nick, local handyman. But he has a secret that will keep them apart. Can they find their way to each other? A sweet love story. I voluntarily reviewed it after receiving a free copy.
