Anne Price was looking for a new start in her life. So when she was offered the opportunity to manage a small town bookstore, she jumped at the chance. Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Anne felt Red Leaf was a refreshing change for her. Everyone treated her like family and she immediately became involved in the town's events. She even joined the historical society. She finally felt like she belonged--until she met no-nonsense Deputy Jesse Kent, her employer's son. He regarded her with suspicion and wariness. She knew with her friendship with Lorna, the owner of the Second Story Bookshop, she'd be bumping elbows more than she liked with Jesse. But what had she done to earn his dislike?
Deputy Jesse Kent had gone on a three-week training conference. When he'd returned, his mother had hired a manager for her bookstore and seemed to have found a male admirer. Both were disturbing changes. His mother liked continuity, such as Monday night meatloaf; but here she was with a new manager, a new recipe, and even possibly a boyfriend. Why had all this change happened? All this prompted memories of another time years ago when he'd had to stand by helplessly while she'd had her trust betrayed with a so-called suitor turned con-artist. He had stolen the savings of many townspeople including her own. Jesse was only twelve at the time, but the event laid the foundation for his desire to become a law enforcement officer to protect his mom and his community. He couldn't help being wary of the two newcomers, Michael and Anne. With Anne, there seemed to be an air of mystery around her, yet his mother trusted her completely. He only hoped it was merited; he was going to do what he could to be certain it was.
The one thing I most enjoyed about this book was the author's sense of humor. There were many occasions for a few chuckles and a smattering of giggles. Good clean humor.
Second, the light romance combined with good character development was a treat to read. Both Jesse and Anne had obstacles to overcome before their relationship could get off the ground. Jesse's lack of trust was a major issue he had to overcome. Anne simply didn't believe in herself. The author worked this out well, considering how short the novella is. Both Anne and Jesse were likable and even lovable in their own unique ways.
Finally, the author includes faith issues as part of the character development. Faith was part of their lives. It blended in seamlessly with the story line and felt as natural as breathing. The issues didn't seem forced or unrealistic. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good light romance.

I really enjoyed this one. It's not my favorite of the series, but it is sweet. I loved how Annie initially met Jesse - he pulled her over because of a broken tail light. I also loved how Jesse wanted to protect his mother.
I'll admit I giggled a bit when these two were thrust together into the roles of bride and groom for the wedding re-enactment. But as the story went on and the secrets were uncovered, I found myself really hoping that Annie really was all she seemed to be.

I loved Annie Price. She was such a fun character. She had been misunderstood in the past, and she is looking for a new start. But she keeps getting caught up in situations that involve the town sheriff, Jesse. Jesse was also extremely likable--he had just enough struggles in his own past to affect his own trust with people.
All of this set against the backdrop of a wedding re-enactment, and this has become one of my favorites of the Year of Wedding novellas.
I felt as if there could have been more said about both Annie's & Jesse's pasts and how that shaped their present. The author did reveal some of their pasts, but not enough (in my opinion). This lack made the ending feel not-so-believable,
A little more romance and happily ever after played out on the pages of the book at the end of the story would have made this even better but overall this was a sweet story I highly recommend.
