Holly and Jeff first met in college and ten years later, she is his tenant. When they first met in college Jeff thought Holly was the girl of his dreams. Holly has changed because of a long-term relationship that left her holding the bag of her ex's debt. She is broke and is a teacher. There is so much more to this story. One of her students family's house burns down and Holly and Jeff make a plan to help them. Holly could ask her parents for a loan to help her financially but doesn't want to because her Dad would never let her live it down. But she finally talks to her Dad, not about the loan but about their relationship. He didn't realize he was making her feel that way and he worked on it and eventually, they even got together to have a breakfast date on the weekends. I think so many girls/women feel this way so it was nice seeing it as part of the story.
Holly was working a part-time job and as she was finishing her shift her ex-was there with a woman and a child. She followed them to find out where he lived because he hadn't been seen or heard from since he left Holly. She went later and confronted him and he had changed his name, got married and had a daughter. When she left nothing, his wife asked for her name and address and she said she would be in contact with her. His wife told him to do the right thing or she would leave him and take their daughter with her. But you will have to read the book to find out how it went.
The book has so much substance and it wasn't a book about Holly and Jeff, it was a book of life, baggage, family and a whole lot more.
The story itself, however, is well done with good pacing. The hero and heroine are very sympathetic and likeable. I definitely recommend it.
Clean romance level: sweet kisses, also implied sex by some side characters but no details
A few uses of the Lord's Name in vain & a swear word or two
Holly is broke and living on a shoestring working two jobs. She had a bad experience with a chance so she stays to herself and doesn't date.
Jeff had a bad experience with a woman so doesn't date. When he has some health issues he decides he needs to change his lifestyle.
Around the holidays things start getting friendlier between the couple.
A feel good story full of small town charm.
has it's own time line.
Holly and Jeff find them selves again and then does the dance of life begins.
Once I started reading, it was hard to stop. The story line is funny with Trixie and Fernando. Especially when Jeff insists on the meeting. I actually snorted on that and to stop for a bit with all he laughing. Enjoy!

Jeff, a slightly overweight firefighter, is happy to be a couch potato, until he meets his new tenant, Holly. She comes with a lot of baggage, highest among them her being broke because she has to pay off debts, her own and those of her ex-fiancé, who vanished into thin air and left her two years ago. When Holly helps Jeff after a cardiac fright, they slowly get to know each other better, the attraction is there, but neither believes the other one could be interested.
A good narration style and likeable characters save this book from drifting away onto a too unrealistic level: a cardiac fright out of the blue, when firefighters have to do regular physicals? Jeff never meeting Fernando, or hearing about what he is? Two blind dates with horrible women? Those are just some of the things that annoyed me a bit because they gave me the impression they were just made up and force fitted to continue the story and the plot.
Apart from that, however, it was indeed a nice and amusing read, and yes, I wouldn't mind to read more of this author.
